Week 65: Fall is here

Well what a #blessed week. Isn't every week? I think its because God loves each one of us that life is a blessing.
This week was great. And the leaves are changing colors and it is a delight. I love fall.
We had some really awesome experiences this week.
We stopped by these former investigators at like 8:45 at night and they actually opened the door and let us right in! We taught them about the Book of Mormon and they said that they were interested in meeting with the missionaries and coming to church. It was a nighttime miracle.
Also, we are tracting in this trailer park one day. And there's a guy sitting in his car and so we knock a few more doors and then Sister Snider is like, we really need to talk to that guy. So we approach the car and as we approach, he gets out of the car and tells us that he wants to learn about our religion and that he was afraid he was going to miss his opportunity if he didn't stop us right then. We taught him of the restoration and he told us that we were "healing his mind." It was an incredible experience.
We also had the Fort Collins Temple dedication yesterday. It was amazing. Elder Uchtdorf spoke as did Elder Renlund. It was super incredible and I could feel God's love so strongly. It is such a privilege to be a part of the temple open house and dedication.
One more funny story:
This week we were out walking and it was dark and all the sudden, this dog barks really loud and it scares me to death. So I scream and grab Sister Snider and pull her and me to the ground and she's just standing there like what are you doing?
It was hilarious. maybe it doesn't sound like it but it was, okay?
Anyway, something I loved this week was at the dedication, Elder Uchtdorf quoted George Q. Cannon who said,
“Every foundation stone that is laid for a Temple, and every Temple completed according to the order the Lord has revealed for his holy Priesthood, lessens the power of Satan on the earth, and increases the power of God and Godliness, moves the heavens in mighty power in our behalf, invokes and calls down upon us the blessings of the Eternal Gods, and those who reside in their presence”
I know that there is so much power in heaven and in the temples, we just have to use it and God will help us!
Have a great week, I love you all!
