Hello!!!! Great week. I can’t believe it’s already Monday..the weeks are seriously flying. Craaaazy.
Ok, first off, we had a Christmas party! One of the members, Tom, invited us over to ahve lunch with he and his wife, Ewe (pronounced Eh-va who isn’t a member). We met them a month ago. Ewe is from Poland and I think Tom grew up in NY…anyways they are super classy people and told us they’d have us over to eat after the holidays. In Poland and in some other parts of Europe, they celebrate Christmas until the end of January…(sounds like our kind of deal huh mom?) So we went over there and they had some great festive clothes on and we went into their living room where everything was still decorated for Christmas and talked with Ewe for a bit. She is a voice and piano teacher and she has a great Polish accent. She low-key looks like Nicole Kidman in older form…it’s the piercing blue, hooded eyes! We then went into the dining room and it was beautifully decorated with all the fancy silver-ware! And we had a 3-course meal! It was delicious. And they gave us Christmas presents! We then sang some Christmas carols, Ewe played the piano, and we shared a spiritual thought. it was the most random, best thing ever. And then later we went to the Mitchell’s home for dinner….we were stuffed. Plus, both families gave us food galore…so we are stocked.
We officially said bye to Flavia…I hope I’m still here when she comes back in March!! Kevin is doing great and has been reading the BOM…he’s such a sweet, humble guy. Nate the great is, well, great! Sister Utera is doing great….she got a new baby chameleon (sp?) and I low key want to try to get a picture with it on my shoulder and do a Rapunzel pose…next time…we picked up a former investigator, Tony!! He is so legit!!! He has three jobs and we invited him to try to get Sundays off, or at least a few so he could start coming to church again….and he said he’ll be able to come this week!! He’s so legit…he was born and England and grew up in Jamaica…super solid and humble guy.
Alieanna’s baptism got postponed…her grandmother was in critical condition and she passed away on Saturday…so sad. Alieanna rescheduled it to this Saturday. She is excited and ready…and her whole family will be there to support her. She and her twin had a little birthday party that we went to which was nice…we got to meet her mom officially and Shea was there…I love these people.
Sister Baylon and I went out to go talk to some people…we met this one young man named Paul who went through addictions for 10 years and has been sober for two months! We will hopefully meet with him soon…we met this one lady named Laura through a referral and she is AWESOME!! We are meeting with her tonight 🙂 Ugh, I am running out of time…anyways, I love you all so much!!! I hope you have an amazing week!!!
Love, Sister Pange
But behold, I, Jacob, would speak unto you that are pure in heart. Look unto God with firmness of mind, and pray unto him with exceeding faith, and he will console you in your afflictions, and he will plead your cause, and send down justice upon those who seek your destruction. O all ye that are pure in heart, lift up your heads and receive the pleasing word of God, and feast upon his love; for ye may, if your minds are firm, forever. (Jacob 3:1-2)
