This was a great week to be a missionary!
We had a special training meeting with Elder Kopishke of the 70, and I could really feel how Elder Kopishke brought the love that the prophet has for us, and also the love that Heavenly Father has for us. The Spirit was so powerful in that meeting. I'm grateful for the opportunity to learn from a representative of the Lord!
Halloween was this week so that brought a different twist to things, but we had a great time nonetheless.we had our Halloween party and had a lot of fun! So many people invited friends to the party! There were at least 15 non members there and 10+ less active members. It was such a fun night and a great chance for people to develop stronger connections! Afterwards we went on exchanges with the West Hills sisters and I got to be with Sis Johnson who came out a week ago here in Pellissippi. She has so much excitement and enthusiasm for the work! It was so fun to be with her for the day! I love the spirit of new missionaries! It is great :)
We also felt the spirit really strongly at church. One of our investigators, Angel, is Hispanic and only speaks Spanish . We've been teaching him with the help of members translating for us. He was able to come to churchfor the first time. We asked two members to bear their testimony in Spanish and several others followed suit afterwards. The spirit was so strong!
I love being a missionary!
