HAPPY HALLOWEEN EVERYBODY!!!

I hope you all had a wonderful week!!

Halloween in Centralia is a BIG DEAL. It’s one of my favorite holidays and Centralia does it right!

We got to go to part of the parade, it’s the biggest parade ever. THE WHOLE TOWN was there. And everyone from the surrounding towns…So pretty much all of southern Illinois was there. We went with one of our recent converts. Her name is Sarah and she’s the coolest person ever. We talked to a ton of people and gave a bunch of pass-along cards.

We also had a ward Halloween party! That was fun, Sister Williams and I switched name tags. Super original, I know right? Our Bishop dressed up like the Dread Pirate Roberts from Princess Bride.

It was tons of fun! We got to talk to a bunch of people and get to know some of the members better. We had some investigators come too!! There are so many ways to do missionary work. You just have to get a little creative!

We had some great lessons this week. The coolest lesson I’ve ever taught happened this week. We taught Gregory about Jesus Christ. He didn’t really have a concept or understanding of the Atonement. It was so cool to see the Spirit work in him and change him in the short lesson we had. The gospel changes lives. It’s truly amazing. He is so sincere and willing to change his life and follow Christ. He is quitting smoking and going to be baptized on the 28th! He is so excited! I can’t wait for him!! 🙂

Jojo is also getting baptized! We are super excited for that. She has been through a lot in her life and the gospel has brought her so much joy already.

Sister Williams is doing great! I still think she came pre-trained. We have a lot of fun and a lot of laughs together.

The people here are amazing. I love them all so much!! Being a missionary is seriously the greatest thing ever. 🙂
This week was just super good. We worked hard and that’s what makes it good. 🙂

I love the gospel, I love our Savior. I love all of you! Thank you for all your love and support. I hope you all have a wonderful week!!!!
