Another Week Down

Monday, December 1, 2014

Dear Everyone,

Well to start this week was a pretty good one. We taught a few good lessons on Monday and had a family home evening with the Juan family. They are super cool. :) But nothing super exciting happened.

Tuesday we had exchanges with the Zone Leaders again. This time I stayed in Naguilian. It was a really good day. We had six lessons which is a pretty good day. We ended up at Devera for the last lesson and it was a good one. We taught about faith and Brother Devera was telling us that he didn't think he would be able to quit smoking but after we explained that faith is something that you can't see and that even though he doesn't see himself quitting we told him to put a little faith into it before he gave up. He really took that to heart and said he would start again. :)

Wednesday was kinda slow but we still did all right. Nothing crazy happened though it was just a normal day. Thursday was a hard day for us. We just walked around for a long time. We had some really good appointments set but we couldn't teach any of them because Arjay couldn't work with us and then the others weren't home. :( We only taught Devera. It was another really good lesson though about repentance.

Friday was another kinda hard day. I don't know why but we had a lot of return appointments in one of our areas but all of them punted us. Most of them were hiding from us. :/ But that's life. haha The rest of the day was all right but again nothing special just a lot of walking and work.

Saturday we went to a new part of our area. It was a lot of fun and we started finding some new people to teach. I'm excited to go back there. :) That night we went back to Devera yet again but it was the lesson about baptism. It went really well. They understood the three things needed for baptism to be valid. 1. right age (8) 2. by immersion (your whole body goes in the water) 3. proper authority. After that we invited them to be baptized and they said... no. :P but only because before Brother is willing to be baptized he wants to be sure this is the right church because he said if he joins the church he's never going to leave it. So we are still super excited there. :)

Sunday was pretty good. I really liked church and all in all it was just a good day. We taught some good lessons and just got stuff done. Those are the days I like the most. Well that's about it for this week.

Questions from a Separate Email

* What did you think about the contents of your Thanksgiving package?

[Favorite?} The chocolate because it's super easy to share with a lot of people. Also it's my favorite kind [Blue Symphony candy bar]. I actually have not opened it yet because I'm trying to decide who to share it with. And yes it is very worth sending more. :) :P [Was the package damaged?] Nope everything was good. The chocolate was a little melted but you can't win them all. :P

* How did the food turn out? [Michelle sent the fixings for a Thanksgiving dinner.]
It was good. But I think I would like things that are easy to share with my investigators more. Like chocolate. they always ask me if I have chocolate for them haha. It was kinda sad though because a cat broke into our house and ate the instant potatoes. I was super sad.

* Did you celebrate Thanksgiving at all?

No not really. For me it was just another normal day.

* What kind of Christmas preparations are you seeing now?

Well there are Christmas lights and Christmas trees everywhere. Christmas music all over the place. It’s actually pretty crazy how much they do for Christmas. The thing I miss the most though is the snow. I really miss snow. But it's all good because I get to see the snow next year. :)
