|Stake Primary Activity, we performed a drama of the First Vision of Joseph Smith|
So the work is coming along really well here. We have three investigators committed to baptism for the month of December. Elder Demera and I are working harder and harder every day. We are starting to work more cohesively during the lessons and in all other aspects of mission life. Thanksgiving was just another day on the job here. I realized on Thursday night that you guys had had your Thanksgiving dinner already. It made me laugh because I had beans and tortillas and sour cream. Hahaha! Also, one of the Recinos family, bought this DVD with all these classic American songs and we were over there for dinner on Saturday. The YMCA song came on and I taught everyone how to do the dance. Hahaha! It was fun! They are great. We are going to have a Family Home Evening with them tonight.
There are Christmas trees here in Honduras! Not everyone has one; probably about half the families have a tree. Everyone says that you eat a load of tamales down here for Christmas, so I am excited for that. I'm missing the snow a little bit right now, but not too much. I don't like being cold. The heat is much better. I hope you are enjoying your holiday season! It's a time to be happy!

I am definitely excited for this Christmas season. The church has put out a thing that will promote service every day of December up to Christmas in different ways. There is a #lighttheworld. I am definitely going to try and participate in all the things that we are challenged to do. It's super cool and an awesome way to serve this Holiday season.

So with starting the Book of Mormon over, I have been trying to really focus on understanding the story and the characters and how religion influenced all the events that happened in the Book of Mormon. It has never been this interesting to me before to read the Book of Mormon before! I find myself wanting to read more and more just to know what happens! It's crazy how much the scriptures are opened up to us when we have an open mind. It's awesome.
Well, not too much else to report on this week. Our zone participated in a primary activity for the stake this week. We did a super poorly last minute drama of the First Vision of Joseph Smith. I had the role of God the Father. I essentially just took of my tie and put on baptismal pants. It was fun though. Good times and good memories had by all.
Enjoy this holiday season and get out and do some service! It's good for your spiritual health!
