"The only ghost I believe in is the Holy Ghost"
That is a quote from this lady we talked to who does not believe in Halloween because it is evil.
This week was a party. On Monday our Ward Mission Leader has a Family Home Evening(FHE) at his house that we can invite people to come to. Last Monday we carved pumpkins and it was Sister Paongo's first time.
On Thursday I gave a training on the Plan of Salvation in district meeting. Then Sunday the topic in Sacrament meeting was the Plan of Salvation. Then in our class after The Ward Mission Leader (Toby Rice) was like Sister Holcomb you should teach us the Plan of Salvation. Sister Paongo was like good choice this is her topic. I totally had to wing it though so it was pretty bad.
Friday was our Trunk or Treat and as Toby's mom would say it was the Bomb.com. We went over earlier in the day to help Jenny(Sister Rice) and Cinida (Toby's Mom) get everything ready. Our trunk was really intense. We also helped make chili which won by the way. *insert hair flip* Cinida framed her certificate. Our trunk was a carmel apple stand. They still had a lot of apples. We set up a place for the kids to dip their apple then put topping on it and we blasted Halloween music. Camri also helped us out. For the trunk or treat Sister Paongo was Harry Potter, I was Luna Lovegood, and Camri borrowed the Ravenclaw robe so we would all match.
Cinida also said she would come to church next Sunday since it is sister Paongo's last Sunday on her mission. Toby told Camri and I that if we got his mom to church he would buy us each a car. Watch out Toby.
The story of how we met Camri is kind of funny. The first time we were visting her mom and sharing a thought. The family does not come to church anymore. Camri listened and just kind of sat there. Then a few weeks later we went to help her neighbor take down a picture from her wall. Her neighbor is not really interested in hearing about the gospel but she let us come help her. We enlisted the elders and Toby to help. We were running late with Toby so the Elders had already taken the picture down. It is a good thing though because then Camri came over to warn her neighbor that there was an animal killing raccoons so make sure to keep her dog in. Toby was like, "what an animal killing raccoons?" So of course we had to go check it out. We went over and found out it was a coyote. Through this whole adventure Camri ended up becoming friends with Toby. Now she is basically always at the Rice's. Her home life is crazy so we are all okay with her always being over there and getting out of her house. She is also 19 and we are the only 19 year olds in the ward so go us. She comes to our FHE thing and she has come to church a few times.
