"Is de bal in de goot gevallen?" "Jawel" "Shucks." ( "Has the ball fallen in the gutter?" "Yes" "Shucks.")

Good afternoon everyone!! Sorry to send this a bit later today, we had our Thanksgiving today! It was pretty fun; we ate turkey, pumpkin pie, rolls and other thanksgiving related items!

Afterwards, Elder Fry of the Senior Couple talked about the Plan of Salvation in relation to the Book of Mormon. There's a special relationship between these two because the Plan of Salvation, Redemption, Happiness, etc. are all mentioned in great detail in the Book of Mormon. Why is that important? Because it teaches us that God has a plan and that the path we are currently on is not Plan B, it's His plan and it's perfect!

This week we're having MLC in Trinidad so the other Zone Leaders and I are flying to Trinidad to meet with the rest of the mission, should be inspirational!

This week has been fun with all of the walking around we've had to do, it's mostly been a mish-mash of contacting and trying to sit with everyone we know. It's working out, mostly! We've met a lot of cool people and have had some very spiritual lessons.

One of my favorites was with a man named David. David used to sit with the missionaries but stopped for a little bit but kept reading the Book of Mormon. We were on our way to District Meeting one day when David walked past us and stopped and bore his testimony about the book and how he knows it's of God. He used to read the Quran but said, "I've stopped reading it, I like this book better, it speaks to me." He's so cool!

Well, I hope you have a wonderful rest of your day and had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
