Alma 29:4-7

It was an amazing week this week! On Saturday, we had the opportunity to have a "mini-missionary" with us for the day. Since we are already in a trio, that made 4 of us, so we did splits for most of the day. Her name was Kenzie, and she is amazing! She doesn't really speak Spanish, but we did some language study so that she would be able to participate in a lesson with our investigators, Alejandro and Rocio! She did amazing! It was a great lesson, and they accepted the invitation to be baptized! Kenzie later texted us and thanked us for an amazing day. She said that she no longer has any doubts about serving a mission, and she is excited to serve, especially if it is in Spanish! 

Also Saturday evening, we had a dinner for Thanksgiving! It was cute, because most Hispanics aren't used to celebrating thanksgiving, but they do now since they live in the US. So for the dinner we had salad, turkey, rolls, mashed potatoes, posole, and horchata, hahaha. It was a huge success all around, especially for missionary work! There were a ton of less active members, part member families, and non members that the members had invited! We found 2 new potential investigators in our area, and 1 for the elders, too!

In church on Sunday I got to conduct the music again, and Hermana Eardley helped to translate a talk from a high council member. In Sunday school, all the missionaries sang "We Thank Thee, Oh God for a Prophet," and we helped set up a video for the class. My companions and I were also asked to help teach a sunday school class for some of the youth, which was fun! It was a great day, because we were able to serve so many different members! I'm so glad that the members trust us and that they feel comfortable asking us for help. Member trust is a huge thing that I've wanted to keep growing, so it is cool to see how we are rewarded according to our desires!
