Greetings, family and friends!
I'll start off by saying I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving, I don't know about you but I was quite round after we left our 3rd full dinner (I may have had some trouble squeezing in the car) and we ended up trying to walk/roll it off by doing a blitz with a bunch of other missionaries in one of the apartment complexes in the area.
Now, for the thing I'm most excited about! I really hope you all have heard of the new Christmas initiative #LIGHTtheWORLD that the church has put out for 2016. It is awesome and we are trying to get everyone in our Stake excited about it. If you haven't heard about it, you should look into it on mormon.org it'll explain everything.
We have seen a lot of miracles in the zone this week despite the mass amount of people that left for Thanksgiving. One of those happened in our area. Last night we went to knock on the door of a referral and we accidentally knocked the wrong door. A woman answered and got super excited. She said: "Elders! I'm so glad you knocked! Ever since we moved we've been struggling to get out to church and recently we've decided that we want to get back into it. Also, my daughter needs the discussions because she just turned nine yesterday and she hasn't been baptized so I really need you to baptize her..." so, yeah...that happened.
Hmm, what else... well, it is snowing today! The first snow storm of the year! We were totally going to hike today but I guess we are meant to do something else.
Andrew got the priesthood yesterday! We are going to take him to do Baptisms for the dead sometime this week. He has been working hard on his family history and he is super excited.
During one of our ward's sacrament meetings, all of the speakers that were assigned went AWOL and so bishop called us up from the audience to be the speakers. We managed to do it and it worked out fine so that is another miracle! That really helped with member trust, so it was a great opportunity. So I really have a testimony that as long as we are doing our best, the Lord won't leave us standing on our own, he is there for us always.
Anyway, love you all! Thanks for your support and prayers! Have a great week :)
