Teaching Kids and their Parents...

Hi Family,

We met a lady this week, we taught her kids first actually when they were out playing in the street.  They came up to us and asked what was wrong (assuming we were police officers) but we said we were helping people have a better relationship with God.  We talked about their churches that they went to and they asked us some questions to see how good of minsters we were.  We answered their questions and then asked them some.  We went over the plan of salvation with them and they thought it was great!  One of the kids, when we were talking about the Fall, mentioned opposition in all things and how there had to be bad to know the good.  He was ten, and knows the gospel better than I do, and he's never heard of the Book of Mormon, haha!  We asked which houses they lived in and we went and talked with their parents and found quite a few new investigators from that.  The lady is the mother of the smart ten year old and four other kids.  We are excited to be teaching them.

"R" is in the hospital, but we are still in touch with her.

We reproved "M" with sharpness and then showed an increase of love afterwards yesterday, it was probably one of the best lessons that we have had.

I will be finishing your letter today!

I got Maddie's package on the 28th.

Thank you so much for the Halloween pizza.

The weather is cooling down it's starting to feel more like Utah.

I have been studying consecration and conversion a lot recently and the more I have studied them the more I have seen how charity is essential, I love 1 Corithians 13, Paul's discourse on charity as well.

Scripture:  Acts 19 13-16
"Then certain of the vagabond Jews, exorcists, took upon them to call over them which had evil spirits the name of the Lord Jesus, saying, We adjure you by Jesus whom Paul preacheth.  And there were seven sons of one Sceva, a Jew and chief of the priests, which did so.  And the evil spirit answered and said, Jesus i know, and Paul I know; but who are ye?  And the man in-home the evil spirit was leaped anthem, and overcame them, and prevailed against them, so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded."

Love ya!
