Dear Whanau,
    Wow! What a week! Lots of things happening and amazing miracles! The Lord truly blesses us so much as we strive to do his will. This week, my companion and I have been doing a lot of walking. It has been awesome! :D We now have legs of the top most quality steel! :D We have been contacting lots of the Members and door knocking. We have a zone goal to help 15 people make the sacred covenant of baptism with our Heavenly Father. We know as we work hard Heavenly Father will place someone who is prepared in our path and we will be able to help them.
   Besides that, we had a Halloween activity as a ward-- a trunk or treat. That was fun, my first time really celebrating Halloween on the mission. We found three potential investigators yesterday door knocking. Fasting and prayer really work. I have such a testimony of this eternal gospel principle.
    I loved what Sister Sudweeks said last week about our attitude. Truly what we decide to feel about something and how we see our current circumstances all depends on us. We can either be happy about something or upset but we get to be the ones to choose. I think that is why Heavenly Father has asked us all to always be grateful and show gratitude. It is through being grateful that we are able to feel happy despite what my be occurring. We still may not like the circumstances, but are capacity and ability to handle it increases.
    I loved this quote by Elder D. Todd Christofferson, "To consecrate is to set apart or dedicate something as sacred, devoted to Holy Purposes. True success in this life comes in consecrating our lives-- that is our time and choices to God's purposes. In so doing we permit Him to raise us to out highest Destiny." How true this is. When we consecrate our lives to God, our Heavenly Father we are changed into the being and person He sees us in us the potential we can be.
    I love you all so much! I hope you all have a wonderful week! Keep reading the Book of Mormon, praying, and going to church! I know you will receive the strength and guidance you need in life through these sacred ways we consecrate our lives to God.
Sister Sudweeks
