Hello! Happy Thanksgiving!!!!
How are all of you? How was Thanksgiving? Wonderful I´m sure.
We had our own Thanksgiving here in Motril. I spent Wednesday Night and Thursday morning bustling about our kitchen making food for us and the Elders in Nerja. And Wednesday night (right in the middle of making jell-o) our POWER went out!!!!! The water literally had JUST started to boil so I started yelling at Elder Rodriguez to get my flashlight and by the light of my flashlight the jell-o was saved. Boy Scouts-Be Prepared or you get lumpy jell-o. Hey look I learned something from Scouts. Just kidding.
Since its almost impossible to find a WHOLE turkey, I made a chicken. OHHHHH boy was it good. And Thanksgiving is NOT celebrated in Spain. Only by the missionaries. I´ll get you some pictures
I am moneyless in Motril. We have traveled SO MUCH this month. I am waiting for a LOT of reimbursement money. And I mean a LOT. So I have no money for food....Or money to travel to Granada for our BAPTISM! this Saturday!! Hurray HURRAY!!!!!! It will be the first baptism in Motril for OVER A YEAR AND A HALF. We´re praying that everything goes well.
I also have to give a HUGE thank you for all of your Birthday letters and books and packages. I am really so blessed to have such an amazing family and such amazing friends. I felt so loved on my Birthday (and the week following it as well)
We found a new investigator this week. Hurray! She´s really great. She is from Ecuador but her parents or Grandparents are Spanish. (She looks Spanish) We taught her about Joseph Smith, Book of Mormon and the Restoration. I really like teaching the first lesson (that's the first lesson BTW) its a super spiritual kick in the pants for us too as missionaries. I especially love telling the First Vision. I just feel the Spirit so strong every time. Can I just put a plug in for Preach my Gospel (missionary study/teaching book for those who don´t know) Its just really great. I´m glad we don´t teach memorized discussions anymore.
It was kind of a harder week, but so great. I am so very grateful for all of the blessings I have in my life.
I´m going to send some pictures (I hope) later today. Have a great week. I love you all. The gospel is true. keep Smiling! :D
