Hola mi familio,
Thanksgiving is this week! Hope you guys have fun! Today us Elders went to a field for p day and played a little touch football :) It was fun. We are going having our Thanksgiving feast today! I'm excited. Last week I was just a few days of feeling discouraged and because of the gospel I've bounced back and feeling really good! I'm happy :) I love the work and it just puts a smile on my face being a missionary. It also makes me happy to see how well things are going with you guys at home. I love you guys and can't wait until Christmas to skype you all :) One month! Next week will be my four month mark and it feels like time is just flying. It's really great weather down here right now by the way ;) Haha hope you guys stay warm! It feels like it's still the summer for me. The families we are teaching are doing really well. Ambrose if all goes well will be baptized this Saturday! He has made some great changes in his life. He loves God and wants to serve him to the end. I'm happy for him and the decisions he is making and has made. Earl will follow Ambrose the following week to join his family as a member of the church. :) Earl has made some big changes as well. He has really come a good way since I first met him. He has really been able to humble himself before God and gain a testimony of the Gospel. He has a strong testimony now of the Church. Megan who is one of the members grand daughter has been really faithful. She reads prays and comes to church each week. She is 16 and has a testimony. We were finally able to start teaching her mom together with her and we had a couple really good lessons with them. Hopefully the mom comes around so they can be baptized together and that their relationship together blossoms. There are a couple ladies that we started teaching that I feel really good about. I believe they are prepared for the Gospel. Their names are Natalie and Andrina. We've only taught one lesson to each so we will see what comes of it. There is also this guy named Gregory that I feel good about as well. He is looking for the truth and has started going through the book of mormon. He has great questions. He really wants to change his life. Rodrique is doing awesome! He loves the gospel and is so faithful. He will be a great blessing to the branch down here. He seems like a leader. The McFarlane boys are doing really well. Their family has been greatly blessed by the light of the gospel and they are seeing that. The mom Pauline is seeing her prayers answered of her whole family being part of the gospel. The Gospel just makes life sweet! There is good in everything. We just have to look for it. Love you all so much! Have a great week and take care!
P.S. - The district mtgs are going really well. I'm learning a lot about how to be a better teacher and leader. It's cool. I've done two and tomorrow I'll do my third one. The first time I went through a Enos 1 verse 12 about desires and faith to help motivate the missionaries to take the good desires they have and nurture them with their faith. To have the faith to find ways to help their desires of being great missionaries come true. The missionaries in my district are already amazing and are really obedient. They inspire me to be a better missionary and I learn a lot from them. Last district mtg I talked about Christ like attributes to help build us missionaries up to them in turn help build our investigators up. Both I felt like went really well. I do attend ward council mtgs along with all the other missionaries. No pec. I take part with Elder Horne(branch president who is from Orem and is returning home in January. He also owns Talons Cove golf course. I thought Mike might like that. He and his wife are absolutely amazing and are a big help to us missionaries.) and Bro. Hippolyte(First Counselor from St. Lucia) in the weekly mtg before church where we discuss things about the branch. I sit on the stand and I assume one week I will conduct the Sacrament Mtg. Elder Odhiambo did when he was Second Counselor. I think they rotate between the three of us each month. So maybe next month it's my turn. I teach quite a bit as well in priesthood and gospel principles. Lots of work but I love it! Love you guys!
