This past week has been so much fun!
Today we went and played football at the Ward’s Turkey Bowl. Their was a great turn out and it wasn’t too cold so we had a blast. I love this ward so much we have so many great families and I think there are more that are moving in soon.
On a sad note though, Brother Gardner, our beloved Ward Mission Leader was released last Sunday. One of our Ward missionaries, Kris Spring, was called as our new Ward Mission Leader. He’s a great guy and we love him a lot so it will be fun to work with him now.
Olots of fun. I was nervous getting it together so fast though. District Meeting goes from . You have a role play, that last the majority of the time, and then for the last half hour, you give a talk. Our role play was focused on asking thought provoking questions and bearing your testimony. Then I taught about becoming instruments in the hands of God. I passed out the Christlike Attribute evaluation that is in and had everyone in our district set goals to improve themselves. I guess it went really well. The Zone Leaders chose our District Meeting to come to, so they were there as well. I think it went really well. I got some compliments that really surprised me. The one thing that I was glad about was people could tell that I put a lot of time and effort into it, so I was happy., I got a call from one of our Assistants to the President. He told me that I would be the new District Leader in Pottstown. Fun! Our first District Meeting was yesterday in Reading. It was
We have a great District too. It consists of the Elders in Reading, Elder McNaughton from Canada that has been out about 2 months and his companion Elder Andrus who has been out a year. And the Sisters in Kutztown, Sister Vance from all over but currently claiming Cedar City, UT who has been out about a year And her companion Sister Olson also from all over but who claims Salt Lake City, UT. An Amazing group!
Today we were invited to one of the Ward get-togethers. It should be fun. Right after though, we have to go, since you can’t really knock on people’s doors on Thanksgiving.
We’ll be sticking around in our apartment at least for a couple weeks. So you can keep sending stuff to the King St. Apartment.
It sounds like you have a fun Thanksgiving planned. Tell Grandma and Stacy I said Hi.
I’ll talk to you all on Christmas!
