Hey shout out to Mindy! Congrats on completing your 18 months of service! That is so spectacular. She will continue being an excellent missionary at home as well, as she always has had a testimony and a light to share with everyone. Good job mom, Kristy, and Rhonda for getting the house ready for sweet Sister Wong. Too cool!

Many times when the Spirit whispers to us, it gives us some really weird ideas. Like this past week, we are visiting a less active family that has a teenage boy named Marco, who is 17 years old. We go to visit the entire family, but Marco doesn´t pay us a whole lot of attention, and sometimes even tries to hide from us, or so we thought. Well we prayed to know how to help Marco come back to the church and help him understand why the gospel is so important. Marco is a super fan of Naruto, the anime, and so we felt the idea that we should teach him the plan of salvation comparing it to Naruto. I thought that was the weirdest impression from the Spirit ever, but when I talked to Hermana Mejia about it, we felt it was the thing to do. So Hermana Mejia then told me that before her mission she was also a super fan of Naruto, and so much so that she had even brought DVDs and playing cards with her on her mission. I was totally shocked because she´s so obedient and hardworking. She said after two months in the mission field she decided to leave it all behind and threw it all out because she couldn´t feel the Spirit knowing she was disobeying, so she doesn´t have that issue anymore. So she spent all morning teaching me about Naruto and how we could compare it with the plan of salvation. We even made him a Naruto themed poster with a list of the blessings one receives for going to church. Well it totally worked because now he sits in the house waiting for us to arrive and pays attention in the lessons. He liked his poster so much that he called us to thank us for it, and it is hanging up in his room. The Spirit really acts in mysterious ways sometimes, and really God puts the missionaries He needs right in the place He needs them to be, because only Hermana Mejia would´ve been able to understand Marco´s likes and tastes to be able to relate them to the gospel and help him understand why it´s so important.
Well anyways, lots of adventures here for Halloween. I hope you all have an awesome week! Love you lots!
