It's December!! That was the fastest no-shave November of my life! Time flies. I'm currently sitting outside, it's 61 degrees out. It's lovely.
This Thanksgiving week was wonderful. The mission-wide turkey bowl was a success. I love that my mission is small enough to gather everyone together and do things like that. The NYNYCS mission is the place to be, I'm tellin ya. After the turkey bowl we rushed to Manhattan for Thanksgiving with the members who don't have family. We had a feast, some good laughs, and played some games with the deaf children. They loved it! Everyone was nice enough to say they liked the pasta salad and pumpkin bars I made. The Elders loved the pumpkin bars lol, they ate piece after piece! I thought I might feel homesick on Thanksgiving, but I didn't! I love our members sooo much, I always feel at home with them!!
Oh! The #heisthegift initiative started! Gotta love spreading that Christmas cheer. It's been humbling. I thought I was good at fearlessing, but I felt so awkward placing my first #heisthegift pass-along card. Hahaha. Still figuring out the best way to effectively do it so people will actually want to watch the video.
K I really can't remember what happened this week.... We did lots of deaf lookups from the area book. Everyone had moved hahah. It was a bummer, but we had to get it done!
Ok I have to go no time to write!! But I willl send some pictures :) -the MTC crew back together. I LOVE sisters Barker and Peterson. -Thanksgiving with theeee cutest little deaf girl in the branch. She has the bluest eyes and gives the longest hugs.
