Thanksgiving and Christmas Sweaters Dec 1, 2016

Heyo friends and family!!
I hope you all had a glorious Thanksgiving! Everything has been so good over here I'm just loving it. This past week we had exchanges and I got to be with a couple of my favorite people... SISTER MCREYNOLDS AND SISTER THETFORD. It was glorious. But also other stuff happened!

JENLEI GOT MARRIED AND BAPTIZED. Oh man it was great. Most of her family aren't members and she got up after and bore her testimony and it was just great. What was even better is that Bishop served his mission on her island (Chuuk... I dunno if that's actually how you spell it) so while he was baptizing her he was able to say the thing in chuukese and the spirit was just so strong! Now Jenlei's family is going to start meeting with the missionaries!! GGGAAAHHH. Guys the gospel is just good.

SAMANTHA. Oh boy she's doing really good too. So her kiddos are all members and so is her husband. So she was meeting with the missionaries about 6ish months ago and she's had all the lessons a couple times so we've been reading the Book of Mormon with her and trying to help her to understand it more. She is from mainland china so she reads the Book of Mormon in traditional Chinese while we read it in English so we can answer any questions she has and discuss it. 

DAVID. He's doing great as always. He's planning on baring his testimony this coming Sunday! On thanksgiving we went to his house and built a snowman and had a snowball fight. It was good fun. He is just on fire though and an all around good kid. He helps his grandma lots. It's just super cool to see how much he loves the gospel at a young age.

Guys I'm just so grateful for the gospel. It truly is a blessing to see how it blesses lives and gives hope and such a crazy world. I know the Savior lives and that He loves us. I hope you all have a fantastic week! Keep being great and know that I love you all!
