 Saying Goodbyes and Welcoming Sis. Davis
This week was pretty much the usual missionary week.

We have 2 new investigators, Theresa and Mike, mother and son. They've been meeting with missionaries in another ward, but they moved here and now we get to teach them! We wanted to get an idea of where they're at, so we reviewed the Restoration, and they both accepted baptism! It was really cool to have them share their testimonies and tell us they believe it all and just want to learn more and more.
We also met with one of our investigators, Stacy, on Thursday and talked a lot about the Book of Mormon. We'd given one to her in the past but we hadn't seen her in a while so we weren't sure where she was at in wanting to learn more. So we read 3 Nephi 11, when Jesus comes to the Americas with her, and she kept saying how much she loves how it goes hand in hand with the Bible. We have a church tour scheduled for later this week, so hopefully good things are coming for Stacy!
Friday morning we got the news about the school shooting in Marysville. So sad. All the missionaries are safe. They brought all the kids to the hospital that is literally 30 seconds away from where I live. We don't watch the news, but from what people tell us, they're still not sure if any of the kids are going to make it. We are sure praying for all those kids and their families and everyone else affected.
Saturday was the ward Trunk or Treat! It's still strange not going to the Keller 1st party and celebrating the big day with my family, but it was still fun! It was actually pouring that day, so the trunk or treat was moved inside and the kids went around to different classrooms. Sis Davis and I switched nametags and went as each other. Pretty much as good as it gets being missionaries!
Hope everyone is still doing great!
