October 31, 2016 - Happy Halloween


Happy Halloween everyone!!!!! Hope you all are dressed modestly, warmly, and stay safe on this freakishly scary Halloween night :D (emphasis on modestly cuz that's most important!;D)

So this week was great, like every week lol :) Sis. Lake and I are still finding and tracting and saving the world! But this week was different! We were blessed with this sudden wave of service! Everyday this week we were able to do some service for someone. Now you guys need to understand, service opportunities in the Alaska Anchorage
Mission are almost as rare as baptisms, they are cherished just as much as baptisms. It's like finally finding the needle in the hay stack! So it was wonderful!

We were able to help the local food bank up here in Wasilla move into a new storage unit. And they gave us pizza so that was a nice bonus! But they have here two giant freezers that are on wheels that were in this storage closet. But the door frame was lower then normal and the wheels on the freezers made them too tall. So we spent most of the time taking off all six of the wheels to push the freezer two feet through the door, then put the wheels back on. It took forever! But it was fun and there was pizza and it was service, so there is no complaining here!

We also got to help one of our less active members paint her dog house and tear down some trees in her back yard. This lady is so cool! For the past year she has been building a house in her backyard. Now it's not a big house, but it is a house her daughter will be living in. The best part is she built it all from the knowledge of YouTube! Like what???? It's awesome! We get to help paint when they get around to buying the paint.

And then we got to hang some Christmas lights for one of our potential investigators. She is awesome! She is neighbors with a member of our Ward who is a blind and deaf and a three time world champion bull rider. We visit him everyday. Right now we are helping him make theses Christmas list thingies. For a blind and deaf man he sure knows his way around! He carves things and uses power tools and stuff. It makes me nervous every time, but he has been doing it for a while and hasn't lost any limbs yet, so there is nothing we can do to stop him. But these two are by far some of my favorites people lol :)

We met with one of our investigators and her siblings this week and talked about some of the commandments. She made the decision to be baptized on November 11 at 5 pm. So that is super duper exciting! She is excited too, and I know her choice will help her two siblings decide on what they need to do. I love that family. And this Ward. Memory Lake is the best!

So tonight for Halloween we have to be in by 7 pm, so no trick or treating for me :( lol but our Ward is having a trunk or treat (which I think is a great idea cuz no one in their right mind would go down any of those drive ways!) and one of our potential investigators and a few of our part member families said they would go, so we are going to make the scene for like 30 min before we have to go in.

Anyways I hope all is well in Zion! Make good choices, choose the right! Always remember and know that Heavenly Father loves each and everyone of you!!! And he made it possible for you to improve and be better than you were yesterday. Do whatever you put your minds to! I love you all!
