So this week has been an interesting week. We’re in a trio now so gettin used to that. But we got a lot of work done that week.
Like I said last week, we had Zone p-day on Tuesday. We went and had a Turkey Bowl at a field. I was the stop-watch person. I didn't want to play football with a bunch of Elders who get really competitive and I wouldn't even get the opportunity to even touch the ball. But I got to keep the time and take pictures so that was fun!!
On Thursday we had to get up pretty early to take Sister Bills to the airport. She had to go home early for medical reasons so we did that and now have Sister Thompson is with us. Also with her working in Biloxi, we get to work both areas, which is pretty big. Then later that day, we had dinner at Sister Maisch’s house. She is the granddaughter of President Wilford Woodruff. She is a really sweet older lady. She lives right on the coast so I got some really good pics of the sunset. They are my favorite!!! We ate dinner there with a couple of the older ladies in the ward. We had an early Thanksgiving dinner and it was so good!!! We were so full after. Then after we went and helped the Thomas's out for a little bit. We had a lot of fun and were laughing so hard, one because we were so full, second we were super tired.
The last couple days we just have been working both of our areas and visiting people. On Sunday, Mercedes Wright had her Farewell talk. She reports to the Provo MTC on Dec 2. She is going to be serving in the SLC South Mission, Spanish Speaking. She is super excited!! After church, we joined the choir and sung some songs for the Christmas Special, then after we went tracting. We went out on splits. I went with Janae Totton (Sister Thomas's daughter) and Sister Burgess and Sister Thompson went with each other. We were able to get are full 7 hours of tracting in. Nobody really answered the door with us, but oh well. Then we went out with Sister Ganschow to go visit less-actives. We got to visit a couple of them out in Vancleave. I think she sent you a picture? Yea so this week has been pretty good.
That is great about Mikey's Eagle Project and reviewing it with the board. Also about him getting all trained with football!!! Okay, super jealous with you having prime rib for Thanksgiving. We are eating at the Thomas's Family. It will be a lot of fun!!!! Being with Sister Thompson has been good.
I love and miss y'all.
