Hope everyone had a most fabulous Thanksgiving Day! It was a great day. Good food, good company, good fun. I would call it a success. We proselyted in the morning (whoever said holidays and weekends were the best times to contact people LIED, just saying) but it wasn't too bad. Then we got together with the other missionaries in the zone and played some football. Gotta have football on Thanksgiving! Then we feasted. Man, any time you can get together and eat food and have a good time, I call it a good day. Good thing we go running every morning....people love to give missionaries food. And tons of it. Our fridge is stocked for days.
Well, as to the work this week. I was good! Kind of slow because everyone and their dog was out of town for the holidays but we still kept busy and saw some miracles! Our bishop has asked us to go through the ward list and go visit everyone that he doesn't know so that has kept us busy! It's really fun because you get to meet a variety of people and MOST of them are nice because they are members and know about missionaries, even if they don't come to church. We found a couple people that are even interested in us coming back and teaching their families, yay!! So it was a lot of knocking on doors this week, thank goodness the weather has been nice! We were even able to go without coats and boot for a couple days. Tender mercies.
Funny story of the week. So we are teaching these two girls that are young teenagers/preteen, cutest girls ever and so funny. Well, somehow the conversation turned to boys and they asked us for dating advice! Probably the last people to be asking for that....awkward before the mission and now haven't even talked to boys for eighteen months! Anyway, they kept talking and their mom cuts in and says something about not worrying about it but working on yourself to become the kind of person you want to marry because you'll attract those kinds of people. One of the girls right afterwards flips her hair back and says, without missing a beat, "I'M attracting!". So funny!! Probably one of those had to be there moments but still. Then they talked about these t-shirts they were going to make with a huge gold star on it with their faces in the middle. Then when they did something good, they would wear the shirt so everyone knew they got a gold star. Sounds like a good idea to me! Anyway, not a ton of exciting fantastic stuff, just good 'ol missionary work! Oh! Also, ya'll should go to christmas.mormon.org and check out the video there. It's probably one of the best Christmas videos I've seen all year! A good reminder that the real reason for the season is Christ and to make Him a priority this Holiday Season. #sharethegift
