Hey everyone back at home! I sounds like you all had a week really tranquilo but thank you all for the emails and stuff. The week over here was also pretty tranquilo unfortunately. We continue to work hard thought so hopefully we will see some success shortly.
So this week was pretty fun. I had the opportunity to go on divisions with Elder Stokes this week. It was fun to be back dong some work with an old comp. I went to his area and we went to visit an old member of their ward. He is about 90 years old and we started talking about how their church got robbed the other week. He then started going off about the kids these days and how they dont have any respect. It was really funny we were getting all in to it with him and we just had a good time with him.
This week we also had a really good lesson with Ernesto. We were talking with him about sacrificing and how Jesus now calls for a sacrifice of a broken heart and a contrite spirit. He understood everything and he said a really good prayer. He is doing well with all that but there is just something missing that we can´t quite figure out so he can start coming to church. I know he feels the spirit in all our lessons so hopefully that will start to work on him and he will have some desires to come to church.
So you were asking about Thanksgiving and everything. I´m pretty sure that we wont do anything special. It will probably just be a regular day of work. But really it makes me think of how greatfull I am to be on a mission. Its amazing all the things that I have learned over this past year. I´m so greatfull to be part of this true church as well and to be able to recieve all the blessings that our Heavenly Father has for us. I love you all so much and I hope you all have a wonderfull Thanksgiving. Tell everyone hello for me.
