MERRY THANKSGIVING!

11-24-2014

I can't believe it's Thanksgiving again. Woowee.

This week was crazy and good and a definitely learning experience. We had just about everyone drop us or we dropped them, but it's time we find and baptize the elect. Wahoo!

So Monday, we had our usual P-day...played at Fishers and took Ang with us...it was fun. Then we went to dinner at Chick-fil-a with Sister Bmn (last one :( She went back to Utah for Thanksgiving and will just come back for a week or so then move back to Utah) and then we went and taught Ang. She's doing well. Satan is definitely trying to work on her, but she's full of faith and knows what sources she needs to turn to for hope!

Tuesday, we had to take our car in, so we started out with doing service at the Pllng's after the Smth's picked us up from the car place. They are moving into a new house so we did some painting and sanding. Then we went to see our referral from that doctor in California with Sister Stdmn. We took her a Book of Mormon and she's excited. It's just a little crazy with the holidays and all of their family coming in. Then we went to lunch at Bub's with all of the senior missionaries and some members from the ward. Then we went out tracting (and it was like 5 degrees) but we talked to a lot of people and found a new investigator! Then we went to teach the Lcvcs neighbor with Sister Smth, but she cancelled so we taught the Lcvcs family. Seriously, they're so awesome. Brother Lcvcs needs to be baptized. Then we went to the Shf's and taught Bn and Mry and had dinner with them. Mry really opened up and we're going to go to her church hopefully on Saturday and hopefully she'll come to ours! Wahoo! Then Ang picked us up and we taught her and she took us home.

Wednesday, we had interviews in the morning, so Sister and President Cleveland picked us up and we went to Fishers. Interviews went well. I was first...wahoo! Then we got to take the Assistants truck and we get to keep it til our car is done. It's legit. They have to drive the 12 passenger van around now. President is the best. hahaha :) Love it. Then we blitzed Fishers, so I got to spend a few hours with Sister Clysn and we got to teach a lot and teach a member. It was fun. Then we had the Wllam's for dinner then went to YW and got Ang to her temple recommend interview. Wahoo! One week baptism, next week, baptisms for the dead! She got to go on Saturday with all the youth. She loved it!

Thursday, we started weekly planning and then we went with Sister Stdmn and taught the Flnrs cause our other appointments fell through (Crl has disappeared and won't answer us :( ) then we had lunch and then went to see our investigator that we met on Tuesday but she didn't show so we visited Anl with Sister Hthwy. He is definitely not ready to accept Jesus Christ, let alone the full gospel. His time will come though! Then we finished up weekly planning. We went and ate with the Smthhrts cause our dinner cancelled. Then we went and saw a YW who was baptized last year. She's originally from China and is just adorable.

Friday, we had District Meeting in the morning then we went to lunch at a Chinese Buffet (yuck. Not my choice. When I get home, I'm never going to one again.) Then we just went out contacting and visiting and I don't really remember specifically who we saw...haha too many days ago. Oh we did see Sbrn. She is so ready to have her baby. She had some sort of allergic reaction to something, so she had hives too :( Poor girl. Makes me not want to ever be preggo. haha :) We saw another couple of investigators that we had needed to see, so that was good. That night, we saw Sister Hstn and then had dinner with the Vn Brgns.

Saturday, we spent the morning helping out Homeplace with their Christmas Cemetery decoration. There were tons of boy and girl scouts that came and helped and it rained but it looks good! Then we went and helped the Flnrs put up their Christmas lights. Those two do way too much for being 80 years young. I'm glad we finally convinced them to let us help them. Then we had lunch, did some contacting in Homeplace, saw the Prdds', saw Sister Hwthrn and set up a church tour, then we had dinner with the Smth's (senior couple from the office that are in the Westfield Ward) and Ang. It was a ton of fun. Everyone just loves Ang. They're all so sad she's moving :( But it'll be good for her to go to YSA and help her family out, so it's all good :)

Yesterday was a dynamite Sabbath. Definitely needed it. Ward council was just hilarious as usual in the Carmel Ward and just had awesome meetings. It was a lot about just how we need to be grateful and realize our true potential and do family history and just everything good :) And then afterward, we were able to see a potential and hopefully get a church tour with him and then we had dinner at Sister Stdmn's with the Assistants and the Carmel Elders. Super fun. And she made us a bunch of southern food like biscuits and gravy and chicken fried steak and gravy and chicken pot pie. And pie. Yum. Then we did a church tour with Sister Hwthrn and then went and taught Jhn and Elzbth, a referral from the Prdds family and they are AWESOME! Elzbth is so elect. Jhn is a minister, so he's a little skeptical but he's willing to pray about it. It's so great. Hopefully we'll get them in the Prdds' home and help them feel the spirit even more in their lives. Elzbth travels all around to all sorts of churches singing. She's from Brazil and goes down there a lot too. It's so great. Then we had dinner and went and taught Sister Knsly. Then it was awesome. Tn, investigator who dropped us about a month ago, called us and wants to meet with us tomorrow. Wahoooooo! Miracle!

And today is Monday. And we get half a P-Day since Thursday is Thanksgiving and that'll be P-Day. So just laundry and shoppin' and car wash for us today then it's to proselytin'!

Hope you all have a fantastic Thanksgiving! Eat lots for me! :)

I don't think I see any questions really in the letters from this week. I'm up for Time out for Women in Indy! :) Is that the time we were going to Vegas? I'm up for whatevs...

My thought for this week comes from President's letter. I loved it. I needed it this week, so I thought I'd share it!

"I Promise Myself....."
To be so strong that nothing can disturb my peace of mind.
To talk health, happiness, and prosperity to every person I meet.
To make all my friends feel that there is something worthwhile in them.
To look at the sunny side of everything and make my optimism come true.
To think only of the best, to work only for the best, and to expect only the best.
To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as I am about my own.
To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future.
To wear a cheerful expression at all times and to smile at everyone I meet.
To give so much time to improving myself that I have no time to criticize others.
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit trouble.
To think well of myself and to proclaim this fact, not in loud word, but in great deeds.
To live in the faith that the whole world is on my side, so long as I am true to the best that is in me.

Peace and blessin's! Count your blessin's this week!
