Its almost December! How crazy is that! I never thought i would say that.
This week we did actually did celebrate Thanksgiving! We made mashed potatoes and corn... hehe. We also did a little chicken/green bean caserole, with rice of course. I cant eat with out rice... im weird. It was an interesting Thanksgiving... i mainly just gave Thanks for all that i have... especially all of you! That night was a very hard night for us. We just had lots of discouraging events happy right after another. We found this little circle piece of concrete and offered prayers, Sister Larsen and I. It was one of the most spiritual moments of my mission as I pleaded on my knees to Heavenly Father. I cant even explain how wonderful it was. Im stronger now because of it!
We are so busy teaching and finding, its so great! I knew i always liked being busy and having a hundred things to get done but didnt realize this would be even more work. I still love being busy!
We had quite the experience this week... We had a Book of Mormon Fireside planned for Saturday. We have been planning it for a month. An hour before we were to start we had a huge brown out in all Albuera. It lasted for 3+ hours! By 6 we were all gathered in the chapel using out phone flashlights. We were planning to watch a movie but with no power we turned it into a question and answer session. We had some great investigators there and they had a great time, even with no power. We had a big candle light dinner in the back parking lot of the church afterwards and as we left the power came on... we just had to laugh about it.
Scripture of the week... 3 Nephi 9:20. Even if you have already been baptized, remember that this is what is required of you before and we should also strive to to this so that our baptism has validity.
I love you all so much!!
