Happy Thanksgiving!!

My companions and me

Familia y Amigos!

How's it going everyone??  I hope everyone is having a great week, starting up holiday season this week with Thanksgiving!  Make sure you all eat lots of food, and be grateful its not a huge mountain of rice!  Just kidding rice is great, just a little annoying when we have it every day. Buuut anyway everyone enjoy that pumpkin pie and turkey!

This week was pretty good, last week here with Elder Kleiner and maybe mis padres (my trainers).  Rumor on the street is that Collado is going to be the new AP but we're not sure, I'll let you all know this next p day.  Chances are I stay here in Jinotepe and finish my training!  We find out tomorrow at about lunch so we will see!  Here's how my week went.

Tuesday Collado had the dentist again, its like a weekly occurance, and we just worked in that area.  We needed that time to work in our own area so we had to work extra hard the rest of the week to make up for it.

Wednesday we placed a fecha with Tania's husband, for the 20th of December.  He has un monton de preguntas (a ton of questions) and we are trying our best to answer them all.  He is really the only thing that is standing in the way of Tania deciding to get baptized.  We interviewed Lupe y Milagro, but only Lupe had the desire, Milagro has a bunch of doubts and fears, so we are working with her this week.

Thursday Kleiner and I worked in the area because the ZLs were in Managua at consejo con Presidente (meetings with the President). 

Friday I went to Reunion de Distrito (District meeting) en Rivas, not much happened there and it was super hot as always, and was super nice to come back to Jinotepe.  It just feels like home here.

Saturday was the baptism of Lupe, and all went good with that!

Sunday Tania told us that she got her answer, and wants to be baptized this next Sunday.  We're super stoked and if all works out we'll have 3 baptisms this Sunday!  Super stoked!

Today we had a district activity and the Hermanas cooked for us.  It was great!

Everything is going super well here.  I hope all of you enjoy Thanksgiving, and really give thanks for all you have. One thing I have realized here in Nicaragua is that we have so much. The people here literally have nothing but are so happy.  Always be thankful.  That's all I got for this week! 

Love you all!
