Pro tanto quid retribuamus

Hello Everybody!

Hey there! Happy news! The cubbies made it to the World Series!  Not
exactly sure what the updates are on that cause I'm a missionary.. But
I hope they do well because everyone is so happy right now! Haha.
Speaking of happiness.. What brings the MOST happiness? Sharing the
gospel!! Deborah has got to be the best missionary in the whole world.
She literally shares the gospel with EVERYONE she talks too. We had an
awesome lesson with her home health nurse-&-boyfriend! It was a great
lesson as they too are seeking for truth. Deborah is so happy.. And is
influencing so many for good. She practically taught gospel principles
on Sunday!

So much has happened this week!! The Akinola family came to the
Halloween party and had a great time! Lots of new investigators. We
had an appointment with Van... And he came to church for the first
time on Sunday. Sister Mattinson and I were asked to speak on church
on Sunday and ended up being the only two speakers so it was super fun
to talk for lots and lots of time! But it was great because we got to
speak on what we thought would most help Van feel the spirit.

So much to say.. So little time. Oh yeah, highlight of my whole week!
CARA CAME TO VISIT ME!! She surprised me and showed up to our ward
Halloween party! It was so fun and so great to see her again! We are
spending today with her today for Pday!!

Well, that's about it for this week folks. Oh, another cool thing that
happened this week! One of our investigators moved to Georgia into
ETHANS WARD!!! Sent him a referral. Aaahhhh! What are the odds.

Love this quote by Elder Bednar from his recent address, "if ye had known me"
"We believe and come to know Christ as we experience personally the
transforming, healing, strengthening, and sanctifying power of His
Atonement. We believe and come to know the Master as “the power of his
word [takes root] in us” and is written in our minds and hearts and as
we “give away all [our] sins to know [Him].”
Believing Him is trusting that His bounteous blessings are available
and applicable in our individual lives and families. Believing Him
with our whole soul comes as we press forward along the covenant
pathway, surrender our will to His, and submit to His priorities and
timing for us. Believing Him--accepting as true His power and
promises--invites perspective, peace, and joy into our lives."

I love you all! Thanks for your love and support!!
