Nov 29, 2010

So this weeks story comes from my thanksgiving. I was fortunate enough to be invited to two thanksgivings. One for all the missionaries and one at a members home. So I went to the first one and made some turkeys out of truffles and icing and cookies. They were cool but I didn't get a picture. Sadly everyone got there an hour late. So by the time we started I had to leave because of a transportation strike and I needed to get to the members house. So I left without eating. I know it was sad for me too. But we arrived at the other on time miraculously catching every metro, train, and bus we needed to get there on time. On arriving, we talk and then other guests start to arrive. We talk to them and had a great evening. None of the guests were members and sadly we never got to bring up the gospel. We left full and a little sad we hadn't gotten to talk much. So the next day comes around and we are at our district meeting and its time to go home. We knew a few ways to get the hour and a half back but couldn't decide which way to go. One of the senior couples told us of a bus that would work. So we walk over and get on after a short wait. About 2-3 stops later a man gets on the bus. We recognize him as the man from the night before. We start talking to him and about 30 min into the bus ride we finally get on to the gospel and have an amazing lesson with him there on the bus. We gave him a book of Mormon and we are going to use the member family to track him. It was one of those moments you knew you were put in the right place at the right time. We are really excited to see were things go with him.

The time has come to say goodbye to our Sister Lelle. It was wonderful to have Elder Fingerle of the Area 70 join with us.

Our group on Mars Hill for testimonies.

Time to say goodbye! We do so with confidence in Sister Lelle for she is a young woman of great faith and courage.
