Merry Christmas!

It is now Christmas season, but we had a great thanksgiving as well.
It was a wet one, but still great! We did service for a 5k race in the
morning and got soaking wet! I made the mistake of not wearing
anything waterproof, but it was still a blast! I have done a lot of
helping for 5ks and this one was the fanciest and most organized.

Then, we went on to have dinner with a member at 2. Then at 4, we had
dinner again. It was a ton of food! I'm pretty sure I'm still full
right now from all of the food we ate. It was a lot of fun. We played
board games for the rest of the night. It was nice to have a chill day
and relax a little bit! We are back to work now lighting the world! If
you haven't seen the new #LIGHTtheWORLD video, go watch it. Serve
somebody this week! Bye! :)

City Lights

Happy Thanksgiving!

Something that I am super grateful is the temple! This week we were
able to attend the temple. We have been having a pretty hard time
finding people to teach these past couple weeks, so it was the perfect
time to go to the temple. It's crazy to me just how much peace that
can be found in the temples. No matter how much stress or craziness
there is in our lives, the temple is a place we can go to forget the
world and focus on the good of the world.

I'm also grateful for nice people! This week we were at the crosswalk,
and we start talking to this 18 year old girl. She was nice and
actually wanted to go to church. Then, out of nowhere, her dad pulls
up and starts swearing and yelling at us. I couldn't help but just
smile the whole time thinking about how stupid this guy is.
Eventually, he just picked up his daughter and left, but it was a
funny experience. It makes me grateful for the people that are nice to
us even if they are not interested in our message.

I would also like to give thanks to all of you! I get a lot of support
from you all, and I wouldn't be able to any of this without your help
so thanks you! Enjoy all the food that you will consume! Don't forget
to thank Heavenly Father for everything he has given us because he has
given us a lot. I love you all! :)

No Good Deed


The highlight of this week was definitely that extra hour of sleep we
got! Haha That doesn't happen too much on the mission. It was
seriously the best thing ever! The only downside is that it gets
darker a lot earlier which means people get mad when you knock on
their door at 6 o'clock saying "it's too late!" People say the
funniest things!

This week has been great though! We taught an English class at a
tienda! A legit Mexican store! Well, we were going to teach an English
class at a tienda, but the only problem was that no one showed up.
Haha We are going to keep trying though until people show up. There
should be some more people that come this week. We have invited
everyone in Tigard that even has a slightly dark skin tone. ;)

Anyways, I hope you all have a great week! Have I ever told you guys
that you are the coolest people in the world for reading my emails?
Well, you are! ;)  Haha I love you all! Bye!
