So of course you all know it was Thanksgiving this week and thank you for sending me pictures of the family at Thanksgiving I love them lots! We got to have Thanksgiving at the Franke's and it was so much fun. Before we went over we were store contacting which was kinda awful but we got icees, so that makes it a little better. When we got there they put us to work. Because he is the ward mission leader the Elders were there too. We helped them prepare the food and it almost felt like home. They had tons of food so that was nice too. Then we had district meeting at night which is a little weird because normally it ismornings. But it was fun. We got to eat Thanksgiving dinner with Peggy (an investigator) and her family. It was great because she let us help out with the cooking too! I got to make mashed potatoes for like 20 people! It was great to cook for a bunch of people again instead of just the 2 of us. All of Peggy's family are non-members so it was cool to be there with them. We said 3 different prayers over the food to make sure all religions were covered. Ha it was really cool. They took us in just like family.
Shout out to Elder Whoevers parents for sending him a Christmas tree back in 2014 because he left it in Michigan and we set it up. It makes our little apartment festive. I had lots of fun setting it up.
We taught Tonya again this week and had a really cool experience. We read 1 Nephi 4 with her. Before we went in we were nervous on how we could apply that story to her life. While we were in the lesson we read through verse 18 and then stopped to ask her "Whats your Laban?" Which was such an inspired question. She really thought hard about it and we did too. We all wrote down our Labans' and put them in a jar and burned them. I have never looked at that story that way. So I am asking you all to consider that question. What is your Laban? How can you overcome it? And then work on it! I promise that if you do what Nephi did and rely on the spirit you will come out on top! I love you all!
