Gabby has a baptismal date for Dec. 21. Pray for Gabby!

So this week was fun! On Tuesday everyone is the zone had lunch at the stake presidents house, he talked to us after lunch about missionary work and how we can be more effective in our work. Later than night we went to visit Ruby and Bato , we talked to her daughter and her mom about the church and everything. Ruby's granddaughter Jessica said she has been reading the Book of Mormon and has been praying and she said she knows its true because whenever she reads it has a warm feeling in her heart! I asked Her mom is she would be against Jessica going to church with Bato her grandpa and she said no.So I believe jessica is coming to church on sundayOn Wednesday we went to the temple, the Denver temple is cool!! Following the temple we went to visit sister Maximoff and talked to her about missionary work and eternal marriage. she made us some sandwiches and packed us a lunch, she said she wants to to have energy for the day.  All our other appointments fell threw. We decided to go find someone one that is a less active member in our ward but couldn't find his apartment number so we knocked on a couple doors to ask if people knew him. We found two new investigators that night and had a return appointment for thursday for a girl named Gabby. On thursday  we had district meeting then we helped the coolest family in our ward move !! its a bummer but life goes on. Later that night we met with Gabby( the girl we met wednesday night.) we talked to her about her church background stuff and talked about lesson 1 "The Restoration of the gospel of Jesus Christ " and she had some questions but understood all of it. We asked her is she will get baptized and she said yes!! She is on date for Dec. 21. She said she wants to change her life and to have her son grow up around good people and a good church. Following  our visit with Gabby, we went to go see Isaiah and Amanda. We talked to Isaiah about  the Law of Chastity  and the word of Wisdom. Amanda wasn't there, we told Isaiah that talking about The Law of chastity was an awkward topic but it has to be talked about haha. On Friday we had a Training meeting in Aurora in the morning, we  had weekly planning, dinner, then at & we met with Ruby and Bato again. we talked to him about how things are going and if he needs help with anything .Saturday  We went to Old Town Arvada and talked to people about the Book of Mormon and passed them out. We passed out a total of 56 Book of mormons and 17  videos about the Restoration. We finished that had lunch, then went to ARC triftstore and did some service. Later that night we had Stake Conference, the topics of the talks were Missionary work. After the session some of the other missionaries and I went to Chick-fil-a for some shakes.Sunday we had Stake Conference  then we hung out at the stake center with a couple of missionaries and had lunch and messed around. After dinner we went to see a referral that we got from salt lake and she wants to meet with us and hear more about what we believe.We finished out night at Isaiah and Amanda's house. we talked about study the scriptures and pray often. thats all for this week our total lessons this week is 17 and 3 people on date to be baptized.
