Hey everyone! Hope you have a great halloween!!
-good- We had a zone meeting this week! This is when the zone (16 missionaries) get together and us (the STLs) and the Zone Leaders give some trainings and we all set some goals together! It was awesome and sooo spiritual! We learned so much!
-bad- Well this isnt necessarily bad but probably more good! A girl in our ward is leaving for her mission to Virginia tomorrow and we had to say goodbye to her yesterday at church! We have gotten really close to her because we have taken her to lessons with us and given her advice! She is amazing and we will really miss seeing her but I know what she is doing is the best thing ever!!!
-fun- We had the ward Halloween party on Saturday! Sister Miles and I dressed up as 80's girls! Everyone loved our costumes:) It was so much fun and a great turn out! We even got a purse full of candy!
-out of the ordinary- Exchanges! We did 2 exchanges this week with the sisters in the area:) First we had one with South Bend and I got to spend the day there! It was really fun, but very rainy! Then we went with the Elkhart sisters. I was back with my wonderful MTC companion Sister Ostermiller! I lovwe that girl:) We had a successful day too!
-spiritual- While we were on exchanges with the Elkhart sisters, Sister Ostermiller and I did some surprise service for someone in their ward! We went and raked ALL the leaves in their front yard! Its the first time I've ever done that because, of course, I grew up in Cali and we dont have fall leaves there! It was soooo much fun! But while we were doing it the husband came out and saw us and was sooooo happy and surprised! His face lit up! He even invited us in and gave us cookies! I definitely learned this week that a little loving service can go a long way and really can make an impact on peoples lives:) I know that as we continue to be like the Savior and serve others that we will see a difference made in the world and we will be happier too!!
Have a great and a happy halloween!!! Love you all!
love, sister griffiths
