Happy late Thanksgiving.
My Thanksgiving was pretty....well, non-existent actually.
Well, I take that back, sister Rivera and I had an early celebration and feasted on some delicious balut. I attached a picture for your viewing pleasure.
Okay, so I didn't really eat the chicken. I just drank a little of the juice and ate some non-chickeny parts. Apparently the chicks/chickens were a little old in the ones we got. Maybe we'll try again on another day. Or not.
So that was Wednesday, and then for some reason Thursday totally passed me by and I didn't even realize it was Thanksgiving. So, yeah, no celebration mom not even in our district. I thought maybe Sister and Pres Carlos would have us over for dinner or something but Pres Carlos was gone on Thanksgiving so that didn't happen.
The funny part is that I totally thought it was Thanksgiving on Friday. I celebrated by cooking up the chocolate chip cookie mix that Jill sent me (Ive been saving it for a special occasion) in our litle toaster oven and Sister Rivera and I feasted upon those delicious morsels.
It wasn't until thenext day that I realized "oh, yesterday was friday....I totally missed Thanksgiving!" Haha it was pretty funny. Sometimes you wonder where your brain is.
We have an awesome investigator her name is Remidia Hernandez. She is in her 60's and she wears these red ball earrings. I've never seen her without those things in her ears. Basically she's the hope of our White Christmas. She quit smoking and drinking Coffee in less than a week and she's come to church straight now for three weeks. Stinkin AWESOME right!? Her faith is already WAY strong and we are so excited for her baptism!
Something new I'm trying to do is truly account to the Lord each night. Give Him an honest report and evaluation of my goals, my efforts, and recommit to go and do where I fell short. That is something I have not been doing so well. Obviously he already knows what/how I did, but I need that evaluation! It's so true that a goal or committment with no follow up or  most generally will not be accomplished!  I have already seen a difference in my progress so I am excited to continue!
Well, thats all for now.
The church is true!
I love you all SOO mmuch.
Be good and remember your baptismal covenants this week.

Love, Sister Webre
