The other Exchange we went on was with the assistants. So it was a much different experience than the first. I learned a lot and felt the spirit. In both of the exchanges we had blown through our plans much much quicker than we thought we would... but miracles were apparent with the assistants because we were optimistic about the work even if it was simply knocking on doors or street contacting.
Thanksgiving was awesome. We started off the day in the best way possible. We played football with 30+ members at the park and it was a riot. We played on the nice wet dew and everyone except me had cleats... so I think I won the award for most times on the ground. I hustled my hardest and my dad would be "so proud of me" if he was there. After that we had to plan for the coming week which was overwhelming because this next week we will have lots of meetings and then have to do a lot of trainings for the missionaries in our zone. Back to the good stuff. Then we went to a thanksgiving feast that my bishop and his wife put together for anyone in the ward who didn't have family to spend it with. 6 of my investigators showed up for it and it was so great. I have never seen them so happy and so thankful. Bishop Mcfarlane is the best bishop ever. He truly lives a "number one christian life" I want to be like him when I grow up. After this we went to the So***'s and had some more delicious food and got to play with their kids for a bit! We played dark tag... it was a blast. I love that family so much!
We had a couple of baptisms planned for this weekend... but they weren't able to come to church this week so that was a bummer. However, we might just have a big baptism the following week! Pray for the Ka***'s and the Co***'s. They are so close they just need a little heavenly push!!
Shout out to my Sister! I love you and I am so proud that you are smart! Can't believe you are graduating this week! WOOT! I would love to have a elementary teacher like you!
Check out the He is the gift video... super great.
