Hello all!

This week was great, and hard, but it ended with miracles, so all is well :)

Tuesday-Thursday-- We taught a girl named Estefana! She is so awesome! She is 17 and a senior this year and she is friends with one of the boys in the ward. We taught her about the Restoration and the Book of Mormon and she had a lot of questions answered. We are meeting with her tonight so we will see how everything goes! :) We also taught Missy and talked to her about the Atonement and how baptism is essential and we set her with a goal of December 13th, to be baptized! She was a little hesitant, but over time and lots of prayers to know if these things are true, she will be able to know for sure if it is something she wants. We carved pumpkins with Abel and the Ramirez's next door! It was super fun! We carved the Salt Lake City temple in ours. :)

 Friday-- Halloween! We talked to a guy named Chris and he said he had a Book of Mormon and asked us if it was basically a witness of Jesus Christ in the Western world and if the Bible was one for the Eastern... we were like "Uhh yeah it actually is!!!" Haha, we have an appointment with him this week, so we are pretty excited to see what happens! We helped out with a little bean bag toss booth at the downtown Halloween Trunk or Treat Carnival in Tehachapi. It was super fun! All of the non-profit organizations, including churches, can have booths in this carnival, so us and some people from our ward helped with it! It was super fun to see all the little munchkins in their costumes. We saw a few of the people we were teaching there and it was super awesome! One of the family's in the ward dressed up as the cast from Frozen! IT WAS AWESOME. Little Olaf man was my fav. We had to go home at 7pm to be safe that night. 

This kid is the cutest thing EVER! I am so obsessed with how hilarious and cute he is! His grandpa is in our ward too and he calls him Tweety bird! 

Saturday & Sunday-- We taught Jeff and he is doing well! It was a super cold and rainy day so the Ramirez's took us out to get some PHO! :) It was perfect. Church was super great, we had an awesome testimony meeting and the spirit was super strong! :) We taught Primary and had one of the boys dress up like Samuel the Lamanite in the Book of Mormon and the little kids reenacted the scripture story of the people throwing rocks and arrows at him with cotton balls that we gave them! It was super funny! They were all really cute :) We gave them all little "Future Missionary" tags and they were so excited!! It was awesome. That evening we went over to Christian's and talked with him and his wife about their plans. His wife is already a member of the church and we set up an appointment to make a plan of action to help him stop smoking and to get baptized. :) Which was exactly what I had fasted and prayed for that day. So I know that Heavenly Father answers our prayers and helps us achieve our righteous desires! I've learned a lot about patience and I am trying to catch myself when I get frustrated about silly things. The Lord is definitely helping me out with that. I know that Heavenly Father loves us so much and that He has a plan for all of us. 

I love you all and hope you had an awesome week! Love you!

Happy November! The trees are all changing and are super pretty! :)
