WEEK 14 Nov 30, 2015 Thanksgiving, Splits, and Mathew 10:16

Another great one! So this week I got to go on splits with Elder Reynolds! He is from New Zealand! We went into my area so that means I got to lead the way! We had some great lessons but teaching Herimael is always my favorite. He is a champ. The next day Elder Schroedter and I went to pick up Elder Bassett! He is going up to ‘fort d’ but his flight wasn’t until Friday. The cool thing is that Elder Bassett and Elder Schroedter were best friends before the mission! Crazy how that worked out! Super fun going on splits though.

Rest of the week was great, teaching members and less actives. So this Sunday guess who showed up to church? Herimael! we were waiting for forever at this bus stop and then we got a call from the other elders that there are two new investigators they didn’t recognize. We went to church to find out it was him with his wife! Even with his walking disability he made it to church. Really, really awesome guy.

We did celebrate thanksgiving... haha not like the feast from home but it was awesome. Mashed potatoes, some gravy, corn, and a delicious boiled chicken haha.

    So scripture of the transfer is Mathew 10:16. Elder Schroedter showed it to me and I love it. We decided it is about missionaries! "Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves."

Well another great p day! We got suits made and we just have to wait a little bit to pick them up! Went to the queens’ palace today but had a little trouble trying to get in so we just walked around and took pictures haha. All healthy now by the way, no longer sick! Loving it here in Madagascar!
