Halloween Shenanigans

Scary Video
Hey Mom!
Happy Halloween!! 
Yes!! We got the package!! Thank you so much!! Elder Davis says thanks as well!!
It sounds like you had a great week!! 
I didn't get any of the pictures... but it sounds like it was a great party!! We had a carnival for our party, and we ran the donut dangle. It was so fun!! I was the fastest time!
We had a good week, and got a lot done. We didn't do anything cool this week except make a scary video and are at this missionary party.
I hope you have a good birthday! It is my first one not being home.... but I hope you have a good one! 
I decided to read the New Testament. As I read, I came across this Mathew 27.

"39 ¶And they that passed by reviled him, wagging their heads,

40 And saying, Thou that destroyest the temple, and buildest it in three days, save thyself. If thou be the Son of God, come down from the cross.

41 Likewise also the chief priests mocking him, with the scribes and elders, said,

42 He saved others; himself he cannot save. If he be the King of Israel, let him now come down from the cross, and we will believe him.

43 He trusted in God; let him deliver him now, if he will have him: for he said, I am the Son of God.

44 The thieves also, which were crucified with him, cast the same in his teeth.

45 Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land unto the ninth hour.

46 And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?

47 Some of them that stood there, when they heard that, said, This man calleth for Elias.

48 And straightway one of them ran, and took a sponge, and filled it with vinegar, and put it on a reed, and gave him to drink.

49 The rest said, Let be, let us see whether Elias will come to save him.

50 ¶Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost.

51 And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent;

52 And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose,

53 And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many.

54 Now when the centurion, and they that were with him, watching Jesus, saw the earthquake, and those things that were done, they feared greatly, saying, Truly this was the Son of God."

I noticed something as I read this. Jesus Christ was mocked, he was made a hiss and a byword. I know that Christ understands when we are made fun of. He knows what it is like to get yelled at, to get things thrown at us. To me, it feels like I am standing shoulder to shoulder with Him when I'm ridiculed for his names sake.
Love ya mom! Have a good birthday!
