November 3, 2014 - Halloween

Aerial view
 It never really felt like Halloween on Friday. Our entire zone, a senior couple, and the Spanish missionaries in the area (38 missionaries) all spent the evening at a member family’s house in one of the wards. We had dinner first at around 5 and then watched Frozen and Despicable Me 2. We went home at 10. We never saw any trick or treaters because we were in their basement the whole night. The movies were pretty good but not as good as I had anticipated. It was a lot of fun.

On Sunday, we had about half of the Mormonism class from GMU come to all three hours of church. Being Fast and Testimony Meeting we were a bit worried about how it might go. It actually went really well. One of the recent converts in the ward told the story about how, after he got baptized, he had to pull the plug, but he pulled so hard it came up and smacked him in the face (haha). It was pretty good. There was also a member who brought a friend that we are going to start teaching this week.

Carving of Joseph Smith receiving the 
Priesthood in National Cathedral

We just got done visiting the National Cathedral in DC and I am writing this email on the metro ride back to our area. It was really big and detailed. They are still in the process of fixing it from the earthquake from three years ago. It is pretty interesting to see how different religions and denominations approach religious worship. I still haven't attended a different churches service, but I would like to at some point. It always seems to fall through whenever we try to set that up with someone.

There isn't too much to report on because I sent my last email like three days ago... We have the last three zone conferences this week. On Thursday we hit the half way point of the transfer.

Zohra's baptism is finally here! She is getting baptized this Saturday (Nov 8) at 4. She asked me to speak on baptism. It has been a really long process but the day has come. Elder Oyler and I tracted into her back on January 16. So almost 10 months ago. It will be a really great day! I'll tell you all about it next week.

Love you!
