Thanksgiving was good. We had 2 turkeys, ham, cheesy potatoes and mashed potatoes, vegetables (and yes, mom I did eat some), gravy, pineapple upside-down cake, fruit tart, pumpkin pie, horchata and lemonade. There was also some crab there, but it looked scary so I didn’t eat it. Man, was it delicious!! The lovely Rosales family shared their home with us, and we felt very comfortable and really at home away from home. ‘Twas magnificent!
That morning, we also played soccer against another ward in our zone. This game is an annual thing, and whoever wins gets to keep the giant trophy in the Bishop’s office all year long. They’ve beaten us for the last 2 years running, but this time we beat them 4-2! My companion, Elder Coffey made the final goal. And one of the points scored against us was scored by a member of our own team hahaha. And our goaly was a superstar!! Guess who it was? Remember the last email about the huge family getting baptized? It was the dad of that family! Man, he was on fire!! It was beautiful how he played. It was a lot of fun, and we got some investigators there, and they helped us out a lot. It was a bomb experience. Boy, do Latinos love their soccer!
Things are really picking up, Work-wise, in our area as well as around the zone. Be ready for some baptismal pictures! We’ve got a couple of friends making their way towards baptism, and we’re stoked for them.
Just one final thought to close: the power of a righteous woman is incredible. It can change the heart of the most wicked of men in an instant. Changes that have been in the works for years can suddenly be made in days. Choose well whom you will marry, for it will largely determine your eternal fate.
I love and miss you all!
