Well, transfer calls were today and there is going to be a bit of a shake up in Beaumont. Obviously Elder Leyerle is going home, but Elder Majdali is leaving as well. I am staying and getting Elder Winnie who actually came out with me, so that should be fun. President Manion also asked me to serve as District Leader, so that's different too. I'm just happy I don't have to deal with sisters in my district!! As President Manion says, they are a gongshow!
Halloween was fun this week. We were only able to proselyte until 6 pm, so we went over to a members home for the rest of the night and helped them pass out candy and played Canadian Monopoly haha. its pretty weird, but its still pretty fun!
Fast sunday was good as well, as it always is. Filled with awkward pauses and some false doctrine, it was just a regular fast sunday! it is definitely my least favorite time to take inv. to church because you never know what is going to be said. But at the same time, it can also be super great, so you just have to take it as it is i guess.
Something we have been working on lately is making an extra effort to help members do missionary work and try and help them see what they can do. Hopefully it starts paying off soon, because that would be nice. But we are going to make a bunch of cookies (or at least attempt) and take them to the Ward Council and other members to try to increase the referalls they give.
Quote of the week comes from Elder Pratt who is in the ward we are in right now and is serving with his wife in the mission office. At church he said "Chivalry is tricking women to be pregnant and barefoot in the kitchen. I can say that because my wife isn't here right now. But the next time you see me I

Scripture of the week is 1 Thessalonians 5:14-22.
14 Now we exhort you, brethren, warn them that are unruly,comfort the feebleminded, support the weak, be patient toward allmen. 15 See that none render evil for evil unto any man; but ever follow that which is good, both among yourselves, and to all men. 16 Rejoice evermore. 17 Pray without ceasing. 18 In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. 19 Quench not the Spirit. 20 Despise not prophesyings. 21 Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. 22 Abstainfrom allappearanceofevil.
Just a great set of scripts! But I like 21 where we need to prove all things, or in other words test all things and hold on to the things that are best for our eternal well being and abstain from all appearance of evil.
