Hey hey hey.... it's your boi…. Elder Brian. Life is going great over here in Morgantown especially since it was Thanksgiving week.
We started the week off right with zone leader exchanges. Their names are Elder Ballard and Ruesch. And yes he is related to President Ballard. It was a great time and of course I learn a lot. We met up with Alvin and that's always a good time over there. They are always swearing and throwing out funny comments and question and it’s just a good time Haha.
We had district council really early this week since the zone leaders were in town. We got a new sister in our district and she is hilarious. Plus it was a good meeting as well Haha. We had exchanges with university elders as well. Elder West and I had to walk clear on the other side of Cheat Lake because we didn't have the car. It was fun anyways though and we had a good time.
Thanksgiving was so great!! We played football, a turkey bowl actually, with our ward early in the morning. I froze my hands off but it was a fantastic time! We had a great day after as well. We made a good breakfast and had a few appointments to go to. The Amrines fed us Thanksgiving dinner, which is the guy who eats poison ivy! I was a little nervous as to what we would be served but it all was super good food. Another thing we did was hangout with a lot of our members at the church and they had some fun Thanksgiving games. The members here are so nice to the Elders. It was a different Thanksgiving, but I loved it!
We got a media referral this week. Eric Blass is his name. I am really excited to start teaching him more. We are still finding a lot of people and beginning to teach more.
Spiritual Thought: In Alma 34: 38 it says- That ye contend no more against the Holy Ghost, but that ye receive it, and take upon you the name of Christ; that ye humble yourselves even to the dust, and worship God, in whatsoever place ye may be in, in spirit and in truth; and that ye live in thanksgiving daily, for the many mercies and blessings which he doth bestow upon you.
What a great scripture for this time of year. Be THANKFUL and let the Holy Ghost bring happiness into your life. We are blessed!!
Funny Moment of the Week: We got throwing the ball around at night with the Zone leaders. We all jump up for the football and miss but since I'm the tallest it came and hit me in the nose. I'm still good looking and stuff but my nose was bruised bad. But at least now my nose isn't runny anymore either. God blesses us in weird ways.
Love all you guys so much. Hope you all had a good Thanksgiving week.
