Week Fourteen 11-2-15

Home Away From Home
Wow time is flying by..... i can't believe it. This is going way faster than i would like. This is my companions last week as a missionary and seeing in him has truly expressed that it will end. before you want it to. there is so many blessings about missionary work that you don't want it to end! it is now so clear how fast the time will pass you!
well this week was a slow one... it rained a lot here and so it made finding fun! then it was just a hectic week all together. 
Wednesday night we had the branch trunk-or-treat chili cook-off! so that ended our night of work early to have the moment for branch unity and hopefully investigators to come! At the cook-off the missionaries were in charge of judging the chili. Seeing how Sister Goring has her food allergies and Elder Hamelin does not like spicy foods it was left to Sister Bagley and I to judge! There was so many good chili's it was so hard to judge. 
Then Friday night was a thing called Begger's night.. it is a night for the kids since Halloween is more for the adults here in the Midwest. so that night we were inside by 6:30. however we had a member of the branch receive her endowments so we were able to attend!
Then Halloween night we were told to be inside at 6:30 again so we were at a members house for a Halloween Party!
Sunday was hectic.....     Elder Hamelin was saying goodbye to everyone and we had to teach Gospel Principles. Then right after we rushed over to Nauvoo. once there I had the privilege to baptize Emilie Inman. (the other elder's investigator who bonded with me so well) It was a beautiful day and after the baptism was the happiest we have ever seen her!
Then today i was able to attend the temple once more! i love being so close to it! It is truly a blessing to be able to attend the House of the Lord! 
Baptisim, His Mission District,  The Forresters and the Parks. The Members take great care of the Missionaries there!
Love the big smile, Mr. Serious, and Hopefully just a Halloween Prank
