It's been an amazing week! On Saturday I got to go to the baptism of two people I taught in the Brighton ward. Since I'm still in the stake and Elder Whitecar is just in the next stake over we both got to be the witnesses at the baptism. The mother was a less active and the two daughter (ages 11 and 14) were not members. It was amazing to see them welcomed into the ward. It was also fun to see members in the Brighton ward again.
I had another great experience this week. We went to a members house for dinner and they invited their aunt, who has been an inactive member for years, to dinner. At the end of dinner we shared a short lesson with them and shared the scripture Alma 38:5. At the end of the lesson I noticed that the aunt was almost in tears. We found out later that the aunt said she wanted to come back to church. It's neat to see the miracles that can happen when you are doing the Lord's work.
I'm excited for this week! Tomorrow we have one of those expanded zone conference. I found out that an expanded zone conference means that they are inviting stake and ward leaders to the conference. On Halloween we are having a mission conference from 10-4 then we have to be back to our apartment by 5 and stay in for the rest of the night. It's really nice to have a small mission because then it's really easy to have mission conferences.
Sorry I don't have as much time to write today. Thanks for all your prayers! I love you all so much!
