Nov 23 Thanksgiving came early

Hello and happy thanksgiving! So great to hear from all of you and i'm
glad you're all doing so well. This week has definitely marked the
transition into our rainy season. Me and Elder Van Den Herik got
pretty soaked on a few occasions but it's all good. We had a couple
cool lessons this week, a group of priesthood holders went by one of
the less actives, brother 'A', in our area, and we asked if we
could come along. It was a little like a home teaching visit but with
a lot more people because he thought he needed help. The lesson
actually ended up going great and I could tell the visit from so many
members of the ward really touched him and he expressed a desire to
come back. Lo and behold we saw him in church this sunday for the
first time in forever! I was so glad to see the members in our area
working together like that it was a sight to behold. If members did
something like that every week I have no doubt we'd already have a
temple in this country. We are also involved in an ongoing service
project with our district mission leader to help rebuild his house! We
spent time on the roof this week and it was pretty freaky i'm not
going to lie! I'm learning a lot about construction though and house
building so i think it's pretty sweet. Last but not least we
celebrated thanksgiving at the 'S's' today! Every year this family
feeds the missionaries at thanksgiving even though they don't really
celebrate it here but it is the nicest thing of them to do and they
are always so nice to missionaries. Anyways that's about it from this
guy but I hope you all have a fantastic rest of your week!
