"Sound of a Trump"

This was a crazy election week. A ton of members kept asking us if people would bring up politics, but the majority of people that brought up politics were the members themselves. When we found out Trump won, Sister Pope said "well you know that the second coming will be declared with the sound of a "TRUMP"!! I was cracking up!!!

This week we had zone conferences and it was great. We got to see the Christmas Initiative that the Church doesn't release until November 25th. I guess missionaries get to see it so they can prepare to show people and we even got the pass along cards. So that's great - I can't wait until you can all watch it. Elder Nydegger (Elder and Sister Nydegger are a couple that work in the mission office) sat at our table during the lunch break and we are becoming good friends. He brought up, again, meeting you (mom) at the Rasmussen's farewell. Sister Pope and I also got the "Golden Plates!" they are awarded every zone conference to the companionship that has the cleanest car. Definitely a highlight of the week!

Elder Gay of the Seventy is coming this Friday! It should be really good. The conference with him starts at 7:30am and goes to 1:30pm! He is also reorganizing a stake too.

We finished all the review lessons with Brother Whitman. He is doing so great and is ready to get wet. He has his interview tonight and then we are going to see them Wednesday, Friday, and of course Saturday and Sunday! Sister Pope, Hollingsworth, and I will be teaching the Restoration in between the baptism and him getting dressed. I AM SO EXCITED! I AM SO GRATEFUL HEAVENLY FATHER IS LETTING ME BE A PART OF HIS BAPTISM/CONVERSION!

We also got our flu shots last p-day and it was Cody's birthday so we stopped by and saw him. Brooke and Cody would be good friends!

One cool experience was that on our way to an appointment we had about 15 minutes before we needed to be there. Around the corner was an apartment that the previous young men's president lived before he moved last month. The spirit told me to go knock so we did. No answer the first knock but the second knock a guy in his mid-20s answered the door. His girlfriend just had a baby 2 weeks ago so we so we talked about having Christ centered families and how the gospel blesses families and went into teaching the Restoration. It was really neat and I am so grateful I followed that prompting.

We have had a lot of lessons this week with less actives and they are doing really well.

Love you so much! Have a great week!

Much Love,

Sister Wynder
Mosiah 2:41 -
And moreover, I would desire that ye should consider on the blessed and happy state of those that keep the commandments of God. For behold, they are blessed in all things, both temporal and spiritual; and if they hold out faithful to the end they are received into heaven, that thereby they may dwell with God in a state of never-ending happiness. O remember, remember that these things are true; for the Lord God hath spoken it.
