Fred's Sister!

Hello family!

I'm so happy that you all had such a fun time at the Halloween party! I have decided to be a missionary for Halloween. It's great! I found a name tag a bike and a bunch of copies of The Book of Mormon. But they are in French so that kind of throws everything off but just ignore that part. Its going to blow peoples socks off!! I am so impressed with everyone's costumes!! Not going to lie, they made me a little home sick. I may have gotten a teary eyed.

This week was pretty good. Unfortunately we didn't have anyone at church. Maggie didn't come. That made me pretty sad but hopefully she will come next week. We are kind of having a slow moment right now when it comes to people progressing. Jean Luke hasn't really been reading and the other people that we are working with are just very slow and very hesitant.

But we had a miracle this week!! We had fasted this last Sunday to have more success and have more members involved with the missionary work and Thursday night we get a call from Fred saying that he is with his sister and that she wants to meet the missionaries. Fred! The missionary machine!! His wife is Sandy, the lady that I was in the picture with. So we made an appointment with her for the next day. We get there and she was with her nine year old daughter. We introduced ourselves and then asked if we could fold her laundry that was on the couch. So she lets us and then we ask to do her dishes. We do those and then ask what else we could do she had us go get the vacuum from the shed in the back and we spent the next 40 min vacuuming her ceiling and the corners of her house  But that time we had to go so we asked her to read 2 Nephi 28 and 29. She said that she doesn't want to read the Book of Mormon because she thinks it just talks about Joseph Smith. So we quickly explained to her that it talks about Jesus. Then we made an appointment to come back the next day. We went back and thought that we would just be teaching her her daughter and her husband but she had invited her WHOLE family over for dinner. Like ALL of Fred's family. His mom and his sisters, and some family friends. We didn't get a chance to have a real lesson with them but she said that she read the verses and we explained who we were. We are going back to see her this Saturday again. Fred talked to us after and said that he hadn't introduced her to missionaries for the past 5 years and that he thinks we might be the ones to really get to her. Pretty cool. So I'm excited to see where that goes.

We will be having Zone Conference next week and having the islands of St. Maarten and Martinique come here to join us. So I will get to see Sister Crompton!!!!!! We went to college together.

Well, I love you all and have a great week!
