El Dia de Gracias (Day of Thanks or Thanksgiving)

Hey yall!

It's been another here in paradise!  Visalia is my home!!  We just had transfer calls and Elder Ayala will be leaving the area and I'll be staying to continue everything here!  I'm super happy for that! I'm really going to miss Elder Ayala.  He helped me see so many things in a different light. I really have grown to be a much better person by knowing him and being his companion.  He's really going places after his mission.  His ultimate goal is to become President of Paraguay, so I'll be checking up on him in these upcoming years!

 CHRISTMAS IS COMING!  I love Christmas!  The new videos the church has for Christmas are amazing!!  I encourage each of you to go look those up and determine how you can share those with everyone!  They are tools for missionaries around the world and the more you share those and talk about those, the more people are touched by the message and prepared, even just a little bit, to receive the Gospel of Jesus Christ!

This week has been one of my favorites on my mission!  We had 5 dinners on Thursday night.  I was so bloated by the end of the day.  There were so many members and investigators that were worried for our Thanksgivings "away from home."  We ate and talked and ate and drove to another place to eat and talk and eat and make more food to eat.  That's basically how our day was beginning at 11:00 AM to 9:00 PM.  It was really great to share the day with so many people and families!

We baptized Alejandro!  It was awesome!  His son was able to perform the ordinance since he's a priest!  It was one of the most spiritual baptisms!  He said he really felt "algo grande en su panza" when he came out of the water. (something big in his stomach)  It got even better on Sunday though, he said that when he received the Holy Ghost he knew that this was exactly what he needed to do with his life and that starting in his chest he felt a warm peace flush through his body.  He is super solid and we've planned out their going to the temple next year in November so we can come back for it!  I LOVE THIS WORK!  FAMILIES ARE THE BEST!

Hey!  Just keep on keeping on!  It's worth fighting for what's worth having!  It's all possible through the Atonement of Jesus Christ.  Study it!  Learn about it!  Your life will change in so many ways!  Your happiness will be off the scales.  Any time spent trying to learn about the Atonement is time put into your salvation!  I know that there is a God who loves us.  He knows you.  He wants to help you!  Let him!

Hey!  I love you all and can't thank all of you enough for influencing me in any way to help me make the decision to go on a mission.  It's been a ride that gets better and better and better!
