Halloween Fun and More!! Plus Pictures!!

Dear Family,

I had a great week this week! I am so glad to hear that things are well with all of you too! Dan and Amelia, you are scary skeletons!!!! I would hate to have you sneak up on me! Hahaha! Keep having fun family!
This letter is going to be a little bit out of order, but that's alright!
On Halloween, we had to be at home by 6:00, because they dont want us missionaries to be getting in to any trouble on Halloween. Luckily for us, we live with Sister Britto! So, we came home and she had made taco soup and sandwiches for us and her kids and grandkids that were all over. Then, she took  the crew Trick-or-Treating while we passed out candy at the house. After that, she made us apple-cider and we all gathered around the fire and talked and laughed and had an awesome time! It was so fun!
We had an incredible miracle this week! We recieved a media referral for a man in our area. (A media referral is when someone puts their info into and requests things like a Bible, Book of Mormon, or a missionary visit.) We went the next morning and met the man, John, and his young family there. John and Markeesha (the mom and dad) told us that they are on a journey to find what they believe is right. They have been studying several religions and are searching to find which one they want to raise their family in. We talked about the Restoration and the Book of Mormon and invited them to church. John actually made kind of a deal with us that if we would go to the Islamic Mosque with his wife on Friday, then he would come to church with us on Sunday. So, on Friday, Sister Kinghorn and I went to the mosque with Markeesha! It was so cool! We had to wear scarves on our head to cover our hair and everything. And... it was so wrth it because yesterday, John came to church!!! And he said that he has been reading the Book of Mormon! We are so excited to start teaching them this week. I really feel like they are the honest seekers of truth and that they will be very receptive to the gospel!!
Another amazing miracle this week, is that Meet The Mormons is coming to the Roxy Theater in Northampton, which is in our area! We are so excited for this great blessing! Our ward and stake is thrilled to have it so close! We know that many people will be touched by this film! And, most of our investigators are going to go see it! How great is that!
Things are truly going so well here! I'm starting to feel like Whitehall is my home! I hardly have to use the GPS anymore to get around, because I know this place so well. I love it! Transfer calls come this Friday though.... But, I really think that I will stay... But, We'll see!
Anyway, I LOVE YOU ALL!!!!!!!! Hope you have a fabulous week!
