So, the bishop had invited all the missionaries over to his house for Thanksgiving. So Sister Christensen and I plus the Elders. It was fun. (: Let me tell y’all a little somethin about the south that I want to do when I have a family. They DEEP FRY their turkeys. (: My oh my it was so yummy! But also, the Bishop had invited someone from his work who is from China so she was alone and she not a member and Sister Christensen and I totally hopped on that opportunity! It was hard because she spoke broken English in a very good way ha. But yea so Thanksgiving was so good! (:
Now I’m goin to jump back a few days. Tuesday a member had taken Sister Carlson and I out to lunch because Sister Carlson was getting transferred. And we had gone to Chipolte! Well as we are sittin there. The table right next to us were 3 guys. And one of them said, ‘Oh yea I’m going to SALT LAKE CITY this next month to see the MORMON TABERNACLE CHOIR, I hear they are really good.’ Both Sister Carlson and I looked at each other and turned around and told him that we were from Utah and that we were missionaries from the Mormon church. We told him he is going to love that concert because they are a fabulous choir! If none of you have heard them I suggest that y’all go listen to them right now! (:
Wednesday comes around and that is transfers! Sister Carlson leaves and I get my new companion Sister Christensen. She is so amazing and wow I just love her. We are getting along so great we have worked out kinks and just already said what bugs us and what doesn’t. She told me she absolutely loves milk and I told her we can be friends cause I love milk too! Then I told her I don’t like mushrooms and she said we can be best friends because she doesn’t like mushroom either!! 😀 It was fun.
Thursday was Thanksgiving and I already explained that.
Friday we had made a goal for ourselves to see all or most of the less actives in our ward. And we went around to a lot and when we came to one member, her brother answered(who isn’t a member) and he talked to us. Let me explain about him. He told us we could call him Brother Brad. So he obviously knows something about us. I at first thought he was a member. And let me say something else…Here in the South A LOT of people don’t have teeth. Especially when they live in trailer parks ha, but the people in the trailer parks are the best! They may not live the cleanliness but they are hilarious! So Brother Brad was missing some teeth and later Sister Christensen said to me, ‘I think I’ve taught more people without teeth then with’ Made me laugh. But Brother Brad might be a bit crazy… He was tellin us all sorts of funny stories. I didn’t know what was true and what wasn’t. I was kinda guessing a lot wasn’t…Anyways. This guy was just so great! And both Sister Christensen and I got the impression to invite him to baptism! So next time we go over to see him. Guess what we are doin?!? 😀 Happy days.
Anyways I’m skippin to Sunday because Sunday was a really good day! We had a less active come to church! And I have been tryin to get her to come to church since I got here in Alabama! AND SHE CAME!! It had made my entire day! She hadn’t been to church in 9-10 years. I don’t really remember but just in along time. So wow! I was happy.
Anyways. Sorry for not emailing yesterday, the library was closed so today it is!
I love y’all and I hope everyone is doin well!
