The big event was on Thanksgiving though. The day began with helping Poppy out and giving her a spiritual thought about being thankful to God. We then had a dinner at two o'clock with a member's family named Jackson, which was very good. We ate too much and got to talk to them for a while. We then were told by them that another older lady wanted us to come by and have Thanksgiving dinner with her family as well. We went on over and found out that the real reason they wanted us over was to reduce the leftovers they had, and neither of us were able to help out much on that problem. We had a fun dinner with them, and then went home and did our weekly planning.
That following Friday we were told about the new Christmas initiative, Light the World, in district meeting, and then I got to go on exchange with a new missionary in Springfield named Elder Anderil. We rode the bus to a bunch of various places and got lost in the area because neither of us knew it that well. We talked to a couple of Jehovah Witness missionaries and several of Elder Anderil's investigators over there. We then switched back the following Saturday at noon. Beyond that, there isn't too much more to say other than the holidays are coming up and our mission president is going to have us heavily use the Christmas initiative made by the church for tracting and contacting.
Thank you for all of the support and help. I hope you all have a great holiday season,
