Wednesday, November 26th, we went on a couple appointments with the Sister Missionaries and it was the best missionary day we have had. The Sister above owns the home where Jake first lived. She is a member and endowed but doesn't wear garments now. Has been offended etc. These are a couple grandchildren that live with them I think. This is a little store they run.
This is outside of the above family. The endowed sister Erma is in the sleeveless top and grandchildren. She is extremely nice. Her husband is a member and active. By her is her daughter, Reggie, who is also a member. Her husband is not a member and drives truck and comes home 2 days a month. That makes it really hard to teach him and for him to go to church. I think she would like to go to the temple. The young girl in the white shirt belongs to the family that Jake baptized and the father died. I think she stays with this family to help them out. She does go to church and sees her family on the weekend.
As we started to gather chairs etc outside I felt a bit uncomfortable but as we started talking about the gospel those things became secondary and there was truly a spirit of testimony. We talked to them and bore our testimonies and it was a feeling of love and wanting to help them. That is where they cook behind them.
Don't be too envious of my wonderful hairdo. It has been over 3 months since anything was done to my hair. It is use to being cut about every 6 weeks or 2 months. AND my curling iron is barely getting warm. BUT tomorrow is the day, I am going in for a hair cut and I am quite nervous about it. and I am also going after a curling iron. I will be a new woman. Can hardly wait.
But about 10:30 a.m. the power came on and we appreciated it even more. We got the fan on and put the turkey in the oven because we were a little late. Then we transported it over to the slow cooker so I cook bake brownies and rolls. It took me all afternoon to bake and I did a fruit salad and a cabbage salad. The above picture I am just walking in the gate after being to the market. That is the garbage truck.
Our Christmas tree. That is truly the extent of my creativity. It is rainy again today and the temperatures have cooled a bit. It is still sticky but definitely cooler.
