Hey everyone!

So first off, it's already November?! Where did the time go..? It snowed yesterday for the first time! It didnt stay any longer than that afternoon, but it was still a good snow :) It's getting super chilly during the days, and people are saying in the next few weeks its gonna be sticking to the ground!

We were able to visit with Carrie last Tuesday and she accepted baptism! She is on date for Nov. 16th! Please pray for her! We actually just found out yesterday, that she has a smoking problem. We didn't know this before, because we had been meeting at her neighbors house. So tomorrow we are going to be talking about the Word of Wisdom.

We met with James last Monday as usually, he is doing great. He is having some struggles, but his faith is strong. He is planning on being baptized Jan. 1, 2014. Keep him in your prayers.

This past Friday was Davis High's first play-off game. (They went undefeated in the season) But unfortunately they lost! So they are out, so that was the last game we could go to! Something funny though.. We usually are talking to people the entire game so we just walk back and forth to each sets of bleachers on both sides. When we walked over to the opposing teams side (Pleasant Grove High), the entire student section starting singing "Called To Serve"! It was pretty hilarious. The people here are great.

Speaking of the football games, we met a girl named Gabby last week at the game and she told us that she wasn't a member, but she wanted to learn more. Her parents didnt want her to though. She gave us her contact info and we are set to go with her to Temple Square this Saturday! The Sister Missionaries at Temple Square are awesome, so it should be a good lesson!

This past week we visited the Seminary building at Davis, and gave them our contact info. We told them they could call us if they ever wanted us to come in to teach a lesson or something. They said they would call us. We have some dead time during the day's when everyone is at work/school, so we figured why not go to where the people are?

A few days ago, one of our Ward Mission Leaders informed us that we have a Potential Investigator! Guess how old she is? Shes 100 years old! ONE HUNDRED years old!! Apparently, she has had a friend for about 40 years (He's 85) who is LDS and he invited her to be baptized and she said yes! So we are planning on going just north to Layton, to teach her the discussion in the rest home she is in, then she will be baptized in our stake! Crazy huh? Her friend is supposed to contact us soon.

We were able to go to the Bountiful Temple last Thursday, and man is it beautiful. Such an experience.

I love being a part of this wonderful Work. I couldn't be more blessed. I love the area I am in, and i love the people. These 4 months have been the greatest and i cant wait to see what is yet to come. I love is Gospel and it is such an honor to be able to do the Lord's work in spreading it.

Hope all is well at home, Thank you for all the wonderful emails and letters! You are in my prayers! Till next week!

My favorite scripture this week: Matthew 18:3 -"And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven."
