This week went well, I survived one of the trunkiest weeks of a missionary’s mission, so I am pretty glad about that...
First off, I HIT MY SIX-MONTH MARK UNTIL I COME HOME!!! There are 2 rumors about your last 6 months. 1. They fly by, 2. Everyone starts writing you again, because after a year and a half people forget about you. I am hoping both of these rumors are true...
I did not do a whole lot for Thanksgiving... I was the only American in the house because the other American, Elder Smith, went to Maputo for a training... So I celebrated by myself. That is cool though!
The day before Thanksgiving the missionary couple here, the Wilkins, rented out a Brazilian restaurant and we had a little feast. It was Brazilian food, but still, it was amazing. The Wilkins are so amazing! I have officially adopted them as my 3rd set of grandparents. They like me too! They say they have to keep extra good care of me since they know my real grandparents.
I had a division this week with Elder Anjos, he is from Brazil and is super cool. He is actually a pretty good friend of mine, so it was nice to walk with him.
I wish I was there to do Black Friday with all of y’all... next year though. Pretty much every Friday here is black Friday, it is Africa!
That is pretty much all… I love you all! Have a great week!
Here is a picture of how I celebrated my Thanksgiving. I made a REAL cheesecake! With cream cheese and everything. I was pretty proud of myself, and yes, I had to use a cake pan as a pie tin.... The mission has taught me how to cook some pretty nifty things. I am pretty much a professional chef to be honest. But as you can see, I shared my cheesecake with everyone that I am grateful for!! (Sorry if you aren’t in the pic, I probs just don’t have a picture of you. I still love you though!) P.S. 27 days until Christmas
Here is my brazilian thanksgiving feast. Amazing!
Sister Wilkins also made pumpkin cake and it was amazing....
Spending Thanksgiving with my peeps.
