This week was a pretty good one here in College Park. Wednesday I got to have CAFE RIO!!! Covering YSA we have both stakes so we had dinner with YSA down in Waldorf and they took us to cafe rio.. oh dang it was the best. Then of course to follow off of that talking about more food. Thanksgiving was great! Nothing like home but it was good.. we played a little football in the morning with a ward and then we had 3 dinners. We had to pace ourselves. we started at the Dennas who's the stake president. It was super good and they are such amazing people. After stopped by at Sister Mayes family and lucky it was buffet style so I didn't have much. Then we finished off at the Senior Sisters that you got the text from. They serve in our ward and they are the best, they are like our two grandmas here. I fully panned on not eating until I walked through the door and saw homemade pumpkin pie. I couldn't resist.
Friday we then got to go to the temple. And it was incredible. I miss so much getting to go every transfer, so all of you back home don't take the temple that is 10 minutes away from your house for granted. After the temple we had a VC lesson with one of our YSA investigators named Justin. During the lesson we offered him a baptismal date and at church on Sunday he said he thinks it might be his time to as he said "get his act together and put all his effort into this church thing" so we are pumped!
Sunday was great Nelson, Tim, and Justin all came to church. So we are looking possible having 2-4 baptisms in December which would be amazing!! Plus another cool side note, they are creating a YSA stake out here and our ward is part of it. The stake has wards in Virginia so we might get to road trip out of the mission on Sunday to go to Stake Conference!
Anyways life is good out here. Glad things are good back home. I love and miss you guys!!
