Well this week was awesome! We had some really fun things happen. I went on an exchange with some peeps and we got to go to eat with a family on the naval base up here that was super cool. Also thanksgiving was wonderful. We had a turkey bowl and i got to play football. It was super fun taking a bunch of old men to school ha. I hadnt played football in years i loved it. I am still sore tho from it ha. It is super pathetic how out of shape i have gotten out here ha. But eating was amazing too. Not to be racist but white people rock ha. So last year we had 6 meal appointments and each one just shoved food down your throat it was terrible! Up here we had like 5 but they just let us eat a little and were super understanding ha. We even got deviled eggs! It was a great day ha. Also we have the coolest kid we are teaching. He is getting baptized in a couple weeks but he is wonderful. He has been in seminary for 1.5 years and has read the entire D&C. He loves the gospel and learning more and he is just a boss. He just reached out to us this week it was an absolute miracle! But we talked with him after church and he wants to go work with us everyday and he has a brand new jeep ha. We also talked to him about the youth in our ward that arent as strong as him and he wants to help us out. This kid isnt even a member yet! It is amazing and we are going to have him baptize his whole family! We are super excited. But ya everything is going wonderful and we can listen to christmas music now! We have been bumping to my boy micheal buble all week. I love that man. Anyway ya thats a quick update. Life is great and i love this time of year :) I love you all too i hope you use this time to serve others. Have fun and just go do some weird crazy service. Nothing else brings more happiness! But i love you all have a great week :) muah

Hey peeps!Is everyone excited for Thanksgiving!? Hope so. We honestly dont really know what we are going to go do. Almost our entire ward is leaving town. Everyone is between 20-40 years old so they all go home for the holidays. There are only a few families staying but we are doing a turkey bowl and eating at those couple members houses so that will be fun. We will probably go around and carol too or something like that all day haha. It will be great! This last week was awesome tho we got to go to 3 day which is a 3 day meeting of the leadership. It is always amazing and we learned so much! Our pres is such a giant and is just a well seasoned man of god ha. One thing i liked is about completely losing yourself in serving others. I felt that i had lost myself and i have but i can go more. Instead of thinking i must change this to help others we must remove the thinking of myself part. It seems crazy but he promised that that little difference brings such big changes so i am so excited to see the difference. It was great to see all the bros too and hangout with them. We had lots of fun and working down in the valley was a nice change. I got to see a couple of my converts too which was so awesome! They are doing great :) i love them a ton. We also had an amazing zone meeting this last week. It was our best one i feel. The spirit was super strong and taught us what we must do and it was really fun too. We also had one of our most blessed days ever. I think it was the most miracles i had received in one day ha it was so fun! But ya the mission is a dream ha. It definitely can be hard but the lord loves and supports us so much. Its amazing how making the decision to not let your circumstances determine your mood or what you do. But if you just choose to be happy and have the best day the lord blesses you and you do. We are creators of circumstance not creatures of it. But ya that was my week. Hope you all had fun and make sure you pound on thanksgiving. There is nothing better than a thanksgiving food coma ha. Enjoy love you all!

Hey peeps whats up!?Well we had a really really good week. For some reason it seemed really slow idk why but ya. It was hectic thats for sure. We had interviews with pres and it was great. We got to do some trainings with the AP's for the zone and it was really good. We also had our last zone meeting of the transfer and it was awesome. We have the absolute greatest zone ever i love it so so much. Its really sad that so much is about to change. I think like half of our zone will leave and i am hoping and praying that i stay here! We have 3 people who just went home its crazy and sad to see them leave. I dread that day haha. Halloween was super fun too. We had a ward party the day before that was so cool. It was massive and we just a huge success. Halloween we just worked and came home and planned for the rest of the night. Not the funnest but we took some breaks to enjoy ourselves. Cant believe it is already this late in the year. I hate how fast things go by. But ya it has been awesome. Things here in Corpus have changed so much for us. It is a completely different mission up here and it has struggled for years but we have changed entirely the way we work and we have been blessed for doing things the lords way. People tend to get complacent and routine a lot. I cant stand that. We must constantly be changing and improving the way we do things and what we do. But i feel like i have grown so much this last transfer. It is incredible to look back and see how you have changed. I cant wait for the new transfer! But ill let you all know what happens next week. Love you all!
