Dec 1 (6 days ago)

So this week was a lot of traveling for me again! Ha president always jokes that I am flying the most out of all the other missionaries and that Ill be a great flyer when I got home. Right when I got to Montenegro they decided that flying is a lot better that an overnight train so I have been doing that ever since I have been here :)

Anyways so this week I was in Zagreb a lot. I got to go there to pick up a new companion for me so that was fun. I was there till Wednesday and then on Thursday when I came back we had Thanksgiving day so that was quite the relief ha. The fist day we met all the new missionaries and went out and contacted for a little and wow it is getting cold in Zagreb already.. I didn't think it would be so could so I just had my suit coat and wow was it a little chilly. But it was fine really and we got to talk to some cool people in Zagreb. I really wouldn't mind serving there, but for now and this transfer I will be in Podgorica!

So Ya Wednesday I got my new companion and his name is Elder Poore! He is from Minnesota and pretty cool. Its really weird to think about all the differences to where we lived.. Like he was the only member in his highschool and then just to see how much the church has grown compared to other places. I feel really priviledged to live where I do and to be so close to churches and Stake Centers and Temples, we have like 2 now that are about 15 min away!! But anyways we are together now and it should be fun. My last companion, Elder Pants and Kakis ha that his nickname is still in the district and Im so happy about that!

So time for Thanksgiving!! We actually had a great Thanksgiving due to the Senior Couple!! I love Senior Couples soooo much and am super thankful for all that they do. So right when we got back from all the traveling, we got to go straight to the Taylors for thanksgiving. It was seriously so good. They bought a whole turkey which that itself is so amazing because turkeys are not very popular and if you do have one then its pretty darn expesive.. and we had stuffing mashed potatoes and great homemade pumpkin pie :)) Seriously it was just like home and I loved it a lot. It was a great day to for all of us to reflect on what we really are thankful for, no matter were we are in life or what period of time we are at. it was funny because we all went around the table and said what we were thankful for and then one thing we were thatnkful for in Podgorica. And of course we have some many things to be thankful for, I didn't have a hard time at all saying what I was thankful for and then when it came to us saying what we were thankful for in Podgorica I stopped and realized that I hadn't thought about that one in particular. But now I do! Ha I really am thankful for this country that I get to serve in, its great!

After that, the next day it rained allll day. Not even kidding all day and at best for a hour or so it sprinkled and then poured ha. So we planned a lot of stuff for the transfer, me and my companion made some goal and then had fun in the rain. Other than all of that, the week was great and very busy. I feel I would be pretty dumb if I didn't end this email saying that I am Thankful for all of you!! Even if we don't even email, I really and thankful for each and everyone of you and helping me while I have been out. Im Thankful for my Savior, so thankful and all I ever want to do is show him my gratitude by the way I live. Well have a great week and remember to count your blessing and get ready for Christmas! LOVES
Elder Lowis
