Happy Halloween everybody! Sister Bolos and I are dressed up as a lemon and a lime. It's cute!
We have been doing a lot of finding this week, and it has payed off! We have added 10 new people to our teaching pool, one of whom has been coming to church for a few weeks already. We actually thought she was already a member until someone told us she wasn't.
It is turning into fall here, which means it is really beautiful, with tons of colorful leaves and the perfect temperature. Except when it rains. Then it is just wet.
As has been typical lately, I have been thinking about joy, and I found a great quote about it from General Conference earlier this month:
"Joy is powerful, and focusing on joy brings God's power into our lives. As in all things, Jesus Christ is our ultimate exemplar, "who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross." Think of that! In order for Him to endure the most excruciating experience ever endured on earth, our Savior focused on joy!"
I know personally that focusing on the joy that the gospel brings into our lives can get us through the hardest things. And joy comes when we focus on Christ. He is our hope.
Have a great week everyone!
