Zelda relates to the gospel

Halloween was on Saturday and we ate at the Keller's house!
And they had awesome homemade costumes! They were amazing!!!!(from left to right) Link between worlds Zelda from Skyward sword and Link from Skyward sword!

I was Elder Mackin-cheese (just for the Trunk-or-treat)

When I found out that the Kids were huge fans of the Video game series Zelda! I decided to share a message about the legend of Zelda and relate it to the gospel!

In one of the games there is a pirate. Who later in the game finds out that she is truly a princess. I then said that we are all princes, and princess of a king, our Heavenly Father. Even if you are a mean old pirate or a hero you are a son or daughter of a God. He loves all of us, each individually. and he knows us better than we know ourselves. 

When we got home we received a text from the mom saying that two of the kids at the house were not members of the church. (they were all getting ready to go trick or treating and sat in for the message) she said it was the perfect message!!!!

So in this Mission you stay with your trainer for 12 weeks! So even though it is transfers this week, I get to stay with Elder Price!  The Next Transfer will be December 15th.

We have been able to teach a lot more this week as well! We have been teaching a lot of members and it's great to be busy every night! It's a really weird to change from "Well we are free every night so pick a night and we will be there!" to "Sorry we are booked that day and this day, can we plan for next week?" It's great to be booked! 

Our possible investigator "Susan" we helped this week as well! When we went over to her house and asked if she had read and prayed she said that the print was too small for her to read! So we are trying to find a large print Book of Mormon!  As for the prayer part; well she did it! but she prayed to Jesus... she said "I felt really uncomfortable praying to Jesus so no I did not get an answer." We explained that we don't pray TO Jesus but to our Heavenly Father! We gave her the "Restoration" pamphlet and taught her the way we pray. She was relieved that we pray to God and Jesus Christ "listens in".

We have also been asked to ask everyone sending mail, to please use the full name (ex: Elder Cade Mackin.) do not just put "Elder Mackin"

I'm excited for the possible snow coming this Thursday. But also glad we have been given a car for the upcoming weather.

I'm LOVING serving the Lord!
Love to all,

 Elder Cade Mackin
