This week was a good one! I can't believe it's over, and I can't believe I'm almost done training, and that I'm almost 20, and that it's almost Christmas, and also it's almost 2018! Crazy stuff!
The branch might take a little bit longer. I guess that the Stake Presidency is rethinking it, and figuring out the details. So we'll have to wait and see when it actually happens. It's crazy that wards back home have different time schedules! Here it's always 9:00.
Oh, by the way! I got your letters! Thanks so much for sending me those! It always gives me a little boost to be able to read your words! So thanks! And I'll be looking out for those packages!
We haven't gotten any snow yet here either, and I don't think it's coming. My comp and I have talked about how funny it would be if it did snow, and what everyone's reaction would be. Haha, they wouldn't know WHAT to do! I think everything would just shut down.
Light the world is going pretty well! It's not hard to find people with smart phones, but it IS hard to find people with internet or wifi, so we haven't been able to show the videos to as many people as I'd like, but it's good. I thought that it would've been funny to call you guys on day five. So instead, I called one of our senior missionaries Elder Buhler and told him how much I appreciate him. Lol. Have you guys seen the videos every day? I was pleasantly surprised when the day 2 video was in the DR. Super cool.
This week we'll finally be having a baptism here in Canastica! We've been teaching a 13 year old named Daniel, and he's gonna get baptized on Saturday! He's a super good kid, and we're excited to get my comp his first baptism in the mission!
We usually have a ward activity every friday. Sometimes they're well organized, sometimes they're not. They're good for bringing investigators to though.
Anyway, that was my week! We finally got the conferene issue of the Liahona, so I've loved reading the conference talks again. I love Elder Renlunds talk, wich focuses on the oath and the covenant of the priesthood. It's so important for all members of the church to understand the purpose and the power of the priesthood. I am grateful for the blessings of the priesthood in my life, and the access it has given me to the grace of Jesus Christ.
I love you all, and I hope that you all have the best week ever! And HAPPY BIRTHDAY IN A WEEK MOM!!!!!!!
Love, Elder Anderson
