December 1, 2014
Just kidding about the one line email! A lot of people were out of town for Thanksgiving, but we tried to make the most of our week. Thanksgiving was good, we had a breakfast in the morning, it was with Inez and her daughter, she is preparing to go to the temple, the 4 missionaries from our ward and the 6 missionaries from the Spanish branch were there so it was pretty fun. For dinner we ate with the Decker’s, also preparing to go back to the temple and it was fun. Then a little later we had an appointment with the Armstrong family and ate pie and talked about gratitude. We shared messages about gratitude with Sister Fussell and also James (a newer investigator) about gratitude. I have really been counting my blessings this week and often wonder why Heavenly Father has given me so much... We had another lesson with Sister Fussell earlier in the week, we talked about the gospel of Jesus Christ (4th article of faith) it was quite the lesson, we talked about the temple and the member we had with us made the lesson so much better. We didn't meet with Kyle but he still came to church. I forgot to bring my planner from last month with me today for emails so I am forgetting everything. We had Zone Training Meeting that was good. We have a really busy week planned for this week! Transfers are next week but I don't think anything will change. The Elders we share the ward with have been pretty difficult to work with, transfers will be good. Christmas is coming! It’s really weird because this year I am in the valley instead of the mountains so it doesn't feel like December, still feels like October or so. Sorry this letter is so all over the place, have a good week! Alma 34: 38 That ye contend no more against the Holy Ghost, but that ye receive it, and take upon you the name of Christ; that ye humble yourselves even to the dust, and worship God, in whatsoever place ye may be in, in spirit and in truth; and that ye live in thanksgiving daily, for the many mercies and blessings which he doth bestow upon you.
