Monday November 20th
Funny then serious, we helped this super Christian lady clean her house and Pennsylvanians when they ask you to use the sweeper it means to vacuum, bet you didn’t know that!
I had one of the most spiritual moments of my mission tonight. I’ve been really homesick lately and been having a hard time and was just comparing my life and wondering why am I here what does Heavenly Father need from me? We had a lesson with a less active sister and her granddaughter. The grandmother has been raising these 2 sixteen year old girls and struggling about what path they are on. I just felt th spirit testify so strong to me that no matter what’s wrong, or who or what or why just anything in life can be healed by this gospel. Jesus Christ heals us through it all even when we feel like He is not there, He is. This gospel, this church is true. It’s true and it blesses lives so much it’s a miracle. I know this church is true, I love this gospel and I love my Savior.

Got to hand out some turkeys today @ the foodbank! Got some tacos too, it was a good day.

Wednesday November 22nd
Got lost today a lot but hey it’s okay. I read such a good talk today that I would encourage all of you to read its called “His grace is sufficient” by Brad Wilcox a well known lds speaker.
Thursday November 23rd 🦃 TURKEY DAY 🦃
I loved today. We started off by going to a nursing home. I got to talk to so many sweet, sweet ladies. One lady I had the same conversation with about 20 times but hey it’s okay. She repeatedly asked me if I had a boyfriend I kept saying after my mission, after my mission and then one time I changed my answer and said I’m too young she said “nope.. You should have one by now” . Hahaha I can’t get away from this question, at least I won’t have to deal with it next year I’ll only be like a week home haha!
Today was very delicious. I had a salted Carmel pecan pie, I used to not like pie but now I LOVE PIE. We had Thanksgiving at our branch presidents house with Tanja! It was so fun but I sure missed my family lots. Preston and I are buds though (their 7 year old) I totally let him win at air hockey and ping pong. It was a day to remember for sure. We ended the day playing chines checkers with some other members. I’ve never missed my family more than I did today, but in so grateful for so many things about my mission.
Scripture of the day: 1 Nephi 10:6 “Wherefore, all mankind were in a lost and in a fallen state, and ever would be save they should rely on this Redeemer.”
Friday November 24th
Light up night! We got pictures with Santa and handed out hot chocolate, cookies and #lighttheworld pass along cards a night after a day full of planning!
Scripture of the day: 1 Nephi 10: 18 “For he is the same yesterday, today, and forever; and the way is prepared for all men from the foundation of the world, if it so be that they repent and come unto him.”
Saturday November 25th
Today we spent reading the polar express to kids and helping them paint! I love love love the service opportunities we get as missionaries and that this cute little town puts on such fun events! 🙂
Scriptures of the day: Matthew 11: 28 “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”
Sunday November 26th
“The seventh day is for second chances.”
I love church, the sacrament is truly such a relief for me in my life, especially missionary life. How grateful I am for a gospel and a church where I get to renew my covenants and remember my Savior every week. Also I love egg nog now too, I didn’t before.
Scripture of the day: 2 Nephi 4:20 “My God hath been my support; he hath led me through mine afflictions in the wilderness; and he hath preserved me upon the waters of the great deep.”
Thanksgiving at the glades ft. Preston’s silly face

So they paint rocks on Pennsylvania and then write like” Ridgway fb” on the back so you paint a rock and hide it in town then go and find others and when you do you take a picture with it, put it on the fb page then re hide it, it’s so fun! Sariah gave me one with my name on it!
