There are Miracles happening Everywhere!

Well hello there family!!!! 
How is my family doing this week?? I would have to agree with Elder Moore, the time is flying by so quickly, i cant believe that October is already over!!!
Well i want to begin this email off on the right note. The other week i told you about our investigator Adriana, and how awesome she was. Well this week, i am writing to tell you just how much more awesome she is!!! She is just amazing, on Tuesday, we went over there and we just had such an amazing lesson with her. we were over there for probably two hours just teaching her about the gospel. And as i shared the first vision with her, i could just see the spirit change her life right then and there. As she was explaining the way she felt, she was like "i could barely breath, it felt like my heart was going to beat out of my chest". We set her a baptism date for the 6th and she was like "yes, absolutely yes". She is getting baptized this weekend and bishop cleared her husband to baptize her. It is going to be so amazing. The Lord has truly prepared her for this. I am so happy for her and i cant wait for this weekend. She is already talking about going to the temple to do baptisms for the dead. Her main goal already is to get sealed in the temple to her family. There are miracles happening everywhere!
Another awesome experience we had was with a fellow by the name of David Gomez. He is quite the interesting character, one of the first times we talked to him he was a little stand off-ish and would not really accept things we told him. He would continue to keep saying things like "i know, but...i really like my beer." So that was the first time we talked with him. We set up an appointment to go back and he was there waiting for us that time. We talked with him and found out that he had talked with missionaries before and had taken the lessons but he wouldn't commit to baptism. That was quite a long time ago. So we talked with him, taught him the things the spirit told us he needed and shared with him the first vision. It was POWERFUL. He sat there for a couple minuets after we shared the vision and we asked him how he felt. He said, and i quote "i feel like i want to sit here and feel this feeling for the rest of the night." I testified to him right there that it was the holy ghost giving him those feelings, and i committed him to baptism...and he accepted. It was so cool. It was so amazing to see the savior do what he does best and save him. It was just incredible. I love being a missionary.
Aside from all the amazing experiences we are having, we had the trunk or treat the other night and that was just a ball of fun. I wore my tattoo sleeve and i had at least like 5 or 6 people come up to me and say "is that real???" and they were like rubbing it and they weren't sure what to think, it was really funny.
Other than that, things are just going dandy, i cant believe transfers are on the 9th again. It feels like we just had transfers like 5 weeks ago. Time is just zipping away.
Well i love you all so much, thank you for all the love and support you provide to me!
Love, Elder Pierce
