October....the beautiful colors:) It's still green here

Hello hello! This week has been quite a roller coaster of just everything. We went all the way down to the mission office for transfers on Tuesday to say our goodbyes and receive our new companions. drum roll.... here we gooooooo
SISTER Garn. She has been out for 8 months, is from Springville UTAH and went to Utah State. so...... she knows Erika and Erik. yep. Things like this ALWAYS happen. I guess they were a big deal up at Utah State or something:) haha 

 We were so blessed with so many awesome tender mercies this past. Little miracle here. Little miracle there. The Lord has been blessing this area and these people so much! As we continue to do our part he does his and its amazing to see! I love it. On Wednesday we were maybe just a tiny bit spoiled by our mission president. We were having Zone Conference and it was super great and then our mission president got back up to instruct us again and he paused for a moment and said... "we will now have the honor to watch.... MEET THE MORMONS" jaw dropped. A MOVIE? what the... It was so great and it also felt just a tiny bit weird but I loved it. It was cool to be in a room full of missionaries watching it together. It was a spiritually exhausting day. That's how I would like to put it. Feeling the presence of the Holy ghost and the love that heavenly father has for us. Gods love is perfect and it is so individual to each person. ISN'T THAT AWESOME! 

 This week we had the coolest opportunity to teach the Carlson family. I am pretty sure I talked about them last week, but this week we were able to tech them a couple times and it was POWERFUL! The dad is a returning member and his children are not members. as we were teaching them this week.... ahhhhh i really just cant describe the emotion and power that was in the home as we taught about the restoration of the gospel and the book of Mormon. It was a moment and experience that will always hold a special place in my heart. Franklin and Matthew are the best. They are so engaged in our lessons and they want to learn more and more. It was even cooler when the dad got up I the middle.. grabbed his scriptures... flipped them open and started looking through them. As he became more and more engaged the spirit became more present. 
  We attended a CSFY(come see for yourself) fireside last night. is put on by our mission President in different areas of our mission. It was so neat because it gives non members a perfect chance to come into our building and to see what we are all about. There are a couple speakers, some short video clips and then a couple musical performances. my zone actually sang in it. It was cool to look out and see everyone that was there. There were about 200 people! The church is true. I know it. I know that conversion is something that we must continue to work on. Scripture study is important and it can and it will draw us closer to GOD. I love the scriptures. I love this gospel and all that it entails. eternal life! 
love you all so much! 

love sister norton:)
