When October Goes

Hello(: Not much happened this week, so I'm not really sure what to write. Haha! So we met with that family that I told you about last week, Jia Family. The father always comes to his sons lessons, but hasn't accepted a baptismal date. This week we taught them the Plan of Salvation and we asked them if they believed it was true. The father said, "Yeah! If you want to get to a certain place you have to take a certain path!" I told him that the only way to return to God was to get baptized, and then invited him to be baptized. He said yes!! His date is the same as his son's, the 21st of this month! And then he came to church yesterday! He was supposed to go to work, but he asked for it off just so he could come! How awesome is that?! God is blessing us!

Some things came up and Qiu Jie Mei's interview got moved to this week. We still hope that she can get baptized this Thursday so PLEASE PRAY FOR HER!
My companion called a member's little sister and invited her to come to a fireside last night, and she did! Her name is Sonya. We met with her afterward and we were able to talk to her about the importance of pray, scripture reading, and coming to church. She set a baptismal date for the 5th of December! God is amazing. 
This week we received some training on the sacrament. I think it is so cool that God gives us a chance every week to start over. The sacrament is a time that we can think about all the things we want to change and make some plans to do it! It is a chance to remember the sacrifice Jesus Christ made for us. It helps us remember that there is always hope. God is loving and merciful. I really learned that this week. He loves us beyond our comprehension. I hope that you can all focus on the meaning of the sacrament this week. I hope you all can remember that Christ Atoned for us so that no mistake is permanent. I love you all(:
