Missionary Work Going Up and Down


Fall is here!  It is in the 70s mostly with a nice cool breeze.  It rained last week, so that was good!  This area needs it.  I'm glad you survived Halloween-haha.  That's great that you were able to go visit/help grandma!  We didn't really do anything for Halloween.  We basically did service all day, then went to a member's house for dinner and then went home since we had to be home by 7, which was kinda lame, but oh well!  That's good they had a good turn out at the Trunk or Treat!  Oh the yummy scones!  It sounds like you had a good FHE planned.  I'll try to write down what I'm thankful for.  I still need to try to write in my journal.  I did good for a while, but then haven't done it lately.  Transfers are coming up.  Transfer calls are Saturday night and transfer meeting is Tuesday, so we'll see what happens.  I have no clue what is going to happen!
This last week was a pretty good week!  We were able to see quite a few people we haven't seen for a while, so that was good.  We had a lesson last night with a guy we contacted last night and he seems pretty prepared!  It's exciting!  We went to Santa Cruz yesterday.  It was lots of fun and definitely needed-haha.  It was nice to be on the beach!  Towards the end of p-day our golden investigator sent an eight page text basically dropping us because her husband isn't on board with the idea.  She was saying that she is going to raise her kids close to the standards of the church because she sees good in it.  Man, it really stinks!  She is sooo prepared, but I guess it's just not the right time or something!  Ahhh man!  I believe she will get baptized in the future for sure!  But, it still is a big bummer!!!!  :(  On the bright side, Scott passed the sacrament on Sunday, so that was awesome!  It was great to see!  The work is going well, but it's kinda going up and down right now, so sometimes it's frustrating.  Other times it's definitely worth it!  Hey-I got a call last night from Sister McFarland-haha.  Don't worry so much-I'm fine!  You worry too much.  I always email, even though it's not always on Mondays!  Hopefully, you have a great week.  Love ya!

Ofa Atu!
