Teaching, a Conference, and a Kitten

November 7, 2016

Hello, all!  I hope you all had a great Halloween!  Ours was pretty good.  We helped pass out candy with the Ward family and talked to some of their neighbors.  Sophie, their daughter, was baptized on Sunday and one of their neighbors came and said we could stop by sometime!

We taught Brenna and Natalya, Reese's friends, twice this week, and they came to mutual (youth night) on Wednesday as well!  Olivia, Reese's mom, was at the last lesson with them and helped us teach about the Restoration of the church, which was awesome!  She is still struggling with health problems.  Brenna doesn't want to pray, but we tried to help her understand that prayer doesn't have to be scary and it is talking to Heavenly Father.  He loves us and wants to hear from us.  

Saturday was one of the best days ever.  We had a conference with Elder Klebingat, and he is so awesome.  We learned so much.  I think one of the main things I got from it is that we truly are children of God, and he knows that we aren't perfect.  He just wants us to do our best, and he accepts and loves us as we are.  We all got to shake Elder Klebingat's hand, and it was so powerful to meet a man called of God to lead and guide His children.

We are having dinner with the McCardles tonight.  We are going to start helping their daughter Brynn prepare for baptism.  Brynn's mom is a member of the church, but they don't come very often.  They came yesterday, though!  We are excited :)

Alright, that's about it for this week.  Love y'alls!

So...I still really like cats :)  This is Tiger.  We met him on Friday.
