Hello, all! It was a great week. Brynn had her baptismal interview on Thursday and she did so great! She was really shy, but she knows her stuff and Elder Leja who interviewed her said she has a really strong testimony. It has been so fun teaching her. The next day they left for Mississippi. She will be baptized on Saturday! On Friday night we had dinner with the Montesinos and we had delicious Cuban food - chicken and rice and fried plantains! Last night we had dinner with the Quintanas who are moving to Clearwater soon, and had Venezuelan chicken empanadas. There is so much wonderful diversity here! We are currently at the church cooking a turkey for the zone activity! We will be having a Thanksgiving dinner and watching Ephraim's Rescue. I am playing the piano for a musical number "O Come, O Come Emmanuel" at the zone training meeting we will have tonight after dinner. What an exciting day! And we get to wear jeans Anyway, I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving! I am so grateful for the gospel of Jesus Christ, for God's plan of salvation, for my family, for the temple, for food, for the beautiful world we live in, for the resources that we have, for the experiences that I have been given, for the Spirit to guide me, for music, for all the wonderful people God has put in my life, and for so much more. I am also grateful for this holiday season that helps us remember Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ and the enormous blessings they have given us. Happy Thanksgiving!

Oh, and I forgot something! Yesterday, one of our investigators George came to church for the first time, but we didn't see him until after sacrament meeting...but he was talking to Brother Johnston, who we had previously thought would be a great friend for him! What a miracle! Also, Brenna and Natalya, Reese's friends, came. It was Natalya's first time!
