Happy Almost Thanksgiving!


Got another surprise text this morning!

"HAPPY ALMOST THANKSGIVING"





"No unhallowed hand can stop the work"

November 20,2017

This week was pretty good.
Highlights:
- I became a solicitor.
- I became a Spanish missionary for a day.
- We got to here from our mission president and remember that he's awesome.
- Started helping out a the Community Food Share food bank.

Ty will probably be baptized next week, because we have to wait until bishop goes back to the jail and gets written permission from his father saying that he can be baptized. And they are moving out of the ward this Saturday, so officially his baptism will happen in the Lafayette ward (just next door.)

We are going to be having a lesson with our top investigator Tony tomorrow so that should be very good. 

We'll be eating Thanksgiving at the place that we are living at, with the Rices. They are an awesome family. 

Happy Thanksgiving! 🦃

Awesome

Hey, so this week was pretty awesome. 
Highlights:
- Met Elder Wilford W. Andersen of the Seventy. He's really awesome and so is his wife. They are really awesome.
- Made Mac n' Cheese waffles for dinner.
- Went to the baptism of Terry in our ward.
- Made a Snowman.
- Threw lots of snowballs.
- Taught some of our investigators that are awesome. Ty is going to be baptized around thanksgiving. Albert is really awesome, but we'll have to pass him off to the YSA Elders. Kisha is pretty cool, she's just super busy at the moment looking for a better job.
- Got to talk with a bunch more members that are awesome and I love.

These talks are amazing.

Extra Terrestrial

Hey, so some things have happened in the last little bit. So for the past little while when I was with Elder Turner, he was dealing with health issues and going to lots of doctors and stuff. So he went home last Thursday and I was transferred to Louisville, one of my old areas. I'm loving being here once again and seeing all the people in the ward that I loved. My new companion is Elder Leonard. He's been out for about 4-5 months and he is really awesome and we are going to get lots of work done here.
This Friday we are having a zone conference and Elder Wilford W. Andersen of the Seventy will be coming to talk with us. I'm really excited for that.
This Saturday there will be a baptism here, Terry. She lives in our ward but has been taught by the sisters in Lafayette by special assignment because Terry is autistic. Also we are teaching a nine year old that will be baptized in Lafayette because they are moving there. So we're doing a little trade off.
Today I'll be going bowling again and then we'll play some volleyball, so that should be fun. 
Love,
Elder Wheelwright
