This week was kinda crazy being transfers and Thanksgiving but it still went well! I was super duper sad to have Ras leave me but I guess that is just mission life! Krebs and I will pick up right where Ras and I left off!
So on Thursday the Neibuers (elderly missionary couple in Lund) gave all the missionaries in our district Thanksgiving! I also brought one of Jeff Hemmingsen's "World Famous" apple pies and it was a total hit! It was all super good and then we played some games after! Not to brag buuut my team won every game and if it was as individual competition, I won ;)
On Friday we had another Thanksgiving at the Vance's and after dinner we were playing ping pong in the basement and Äldste Barker swung at the ball and missed and broke the Vance's light!! It was really funny hahahaha.
Well Saturday was Donald's big day!!! I was stressing super hard all day because I just wanted everything to be perfect but of course it wasn't.... We had made a program earlier in the week but when we got to the church to print it off, the file was deleted... so we had to start over... perfect... and then we didn't realize how long it took to fill the faunt so that made me stress more! And then not a whole lot of members came which just kinda made me mad!
But once Donald and I stepped into the water, instantly all my worries and stress went away and I just knew everything was going to be alright. As President Utchdorf would say "Donald was like a dry cake mix, you just need to add water." Donald was prepared to enter the waters of baptism. He bore his testimony after he was baptized and it just made me realize how the Lord places us in the path of those who are ready to listen.
Sunday he was confirmed by Bishop Eldenberg, He was full of smiles all of church :))
Well I don't got a whole lot to say guys!! It has been a crazy week!! I love you all and I miss you even more now that it is the holiday season! Thank you so much for the prayers and letters! Love 'em!
