Family and friends,
This week was crazy. In a good way. We ran from one thing to the next all week. Made the week fly by. Wednesday we had a zone meeting with all the missionaries from Madrid. I love meetings with big groups of missionaries and our mission president, I always learn a ton. After, Hermana Pack and the Larsens (senior missionary couple) prepared a thanksgiving dinner for all of us. Tons of food, I don't know how they did it. It was delicious. Thursday Hermana Maza had the privilege to be the escort of her mom in the temple. Her mom recently completed one year as a member and President Pack gave her permission to go. Which meant I got to go as well. It was great to get an extra trip to the temple and meet Hermana Maza's mom. It was a little weird to be with family of a missionary, but a great experience. Thursday a family from the ward, the Guzmans, also made a thanksgiving dinner for us. Even though Thanksgiving is not a holiday here, it was great to be able to celebrate it with people. The members are so great and take good care of us! On Friday we had a ward activity and watched Meet the Mormons. We had a few investigators come that loved it. It's an awesome movie to introduce some things about our church. On Saturday we went to teach three kids that we are teaching. They forgot and were having a going away party for a friend who was moving to Chile. They just invited all their friends to listen to our message as well. Somehow we got about 10 kids to listen to us attentively. It was a fun lesson.
Gerbert and Yonathon are still progressing well. We are all getting excited for Gerbert's baptism in a few weeks. Also, Hermana Maza and I were in a picture taking mood this week, so enjoy the millions of photos. Mostly of food. No, I'm not going hungry.
Love you all! Hope you enjoyed your Thanksgiving!
