To start out this week got to sit in on a Scouting meeting to offer in this branch and help set that up. Then on Wednesday we went out to Mayrthorp to try former investigators in the area and when we went to this one door we found out that the guy had moved about 4 years ago, however we started to talk about the gospel with the lady who answered the door and we got to set up an appointment to go back and start teaching them. Then on the way back we stopped in Blue Ridge and were able to meet with some less-actives there and got to share a spiritual message with them. And that night we had our Branch activity and we had some non-members show up to that. Then on Thursday we went into Edmonton to have a Zone meeting and we had a guest speaker there from the UK. Then come Friday we meet with one of our investigators and it sounds like he is excited to come to church soon. Also on Friday we went and helped a member pull out the pump for his well that stopped working, which involved pulling 120 feet of pipe out of the ground. Then on Saturday we helped our Branch President finish chopping the wood they need for the winter, and they feed us our first Thanksgiving dinner. Yes they had Turkey, Potatoes, and Stuffing. Then come Sunday I gave my first talk in Sacrament meeting, it went well, there were only 14 of us there for some reason. Then for Dinner that night we had some less traditional Thanksgiving food, Pulled Pork sandwiches, and Corn.

On Thanksgiving yesterday, we got to drive out to Bear Lake and spend the day with our District. We were able to have a fire there, so we roasted Marshmallows and had Smores. Then we got to have fun playing district games. Then that night we got to give a non-member a blessing who asked for it, because he broke his solder. Then for dinner we got to have Hamburgers and Fries. Then we got to end the day off with having a lesson with a recent convert. I also got to have Eggnog this past week.

During my studies I learned about the importance of doing the little things, just like Ammon when he first entered into King Lemoni's presence, he just wanted to be his servant so that he could show hem he was willing to do what it took, even if it was just doing the normal tasks he was asked to do. I know that if I am able to do what I am asked to do it will make an impact in someones life. I also know that if I can follow the council of my leaders that it will bring blessings, even if I don't necessarily want to do it.

I love you all and I hope you all have a good week to come.
