My week has been great! We have seen a lot of tender mercies this week and it has been great. Thanksgiving
was good. So so good. I do have the recipe for sweet potato pie but
nobody makes it as good as that. Good to know that I finally got my
I. Love. The. A. It is so cool and I wish I could see it in
person but I am so glad you sent me a picture. The Aggie's are pretty
We didn't have anybody come to church this week because of the Holidays but we're praying for some next week!
The weather has been quite a bit colder and was 28 on Thanksgiving
while we were outside helping with a Turkey Trot race. It was fun but I
am so thankful that I got to wear pants. Because it was pretty nippy!
We have had quite a bit of rain and I am pretty sure it is raining right
now, it was when we came in anyways...
I did in fact find Cherry cordial kisses at Walmart and it was
worth every single penny to get them. I eat them on rough days and now I
just tell myself that everyday is a rough day so I can have one. :)
Last week Sister Parker and I had a prompting to make a loaf of
Pumpkin bread to one of the families that we have been visiting who have
been less active for a lot of years. They have been really receptive to
us and the ward says that no one was able to get in before us and if
they did they would meet for a little while then cancel. So we took them
the bread with a little note and left it with their son because the
parents weren't even home. When we came to our next appointment they were
amazed and they opened right up to us and committed to come to church on
Sunday because of
that. They said that us taking time and money to give that to them was
amazing and they were very grateful and the Dad was almost in tears
thanking us and he left his brothers house early to come back to our
appointment because he said that he wants his kids to have the comfort
that the gospel can bring so he is going to start coming back. All
because of a loaf a bread from a mix that we didn't think would be that
big of a deal. Heavenly Father knows exactly what people need and I am
grateful that he let us help them.
Our investigator that had a baptismal date dropped of the
face of the planet and we haven't seen or talked to her since. We are
pretty sad, Satan is really working hard on people. The family that said
they were going to come to church texted us an hour before because 4 of
their 5 kids were up all night throwing up. People are getting the Satan
flu. Dumb Satan. But the family is committed and they do want to come
back so we are praying for them and really excited.
was so good! We ate with a member and the trio of sisters that are in
the UGA campus branch. Sister Bradford is with them and we are going to
probably play that musical number that you sent me for our mission Christmas party slash talent show. We'll see how it goes you know how I am about counting... :)
As of this week I am the new district piano player for
district meetings which should be interesting hope it all goes well. And
my training on hope was well... It is over and it went okay. But I had
to go after Elder Evans our district leader who is like celestial... I
don't know how I was supposed to follow that but whatevs. :)
It was a great week and I hope things are going well for you! I
love you guys and miss you lots and can't wait to talk to you at Christmas!
Until next time, Peace, love, prayers, blessing, and hugs!
