Youth in the Sommerschield Ward on the bus back to Maputo.
Happy Thanksgiving!!! I hope all of you will have a wonderful holiday this coming week! This past week was pretty fun! We had Stake Conference yesterday and heard from two apostles! Way cool and a lot of people. The Sommerschield Ward, and others, rented a bus to transport the members to the Matola chapel. On the way back we sang hymns and everyone was so happy. It is something a will not forget for a long while.
Last week we visited Maputo Shop, sat for a few minutes then left. The malls in The U.S. are malls. The "malls" here are just a few shops outside. But I also had my first division outside of Sommerschield this week. There was a huge pit in the area. It is called Mahotas, the area, not the pit. But I love the mission so much. This week was great. I love this area and the members and the people we teach so much. With another transfer this next week I feel anxious about the possibility of leaving. But I will go wherever I am needed.
I feel the love of Christ so much in my mission and I hope that one day every single person will be able to feel that same love! I love you all. I received 35 emails from many of you my family and friends. Thank you all so much for the birthday wishes. My birthday was great and we are fortunate that an American family invited us to their home to celebrate Thanksgiving with them. I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving and remember the things that God so graciously gives us.
