Happy Thanksgiving! I’m grateful for my family.
For Thanksgiving! We will go teach people about the gospel and help the sisters who are finishing their missions have everything ready so they can celebrate Thanksgiving with their families.
I’m so proud of you in who you are and all you are doing. Mosea is the greatest!!
You are amazing Mama. I love you!
I”m so grateful for you in my life. I can’t express with words.

Daddy: Goooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooood Mooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooorning!!! I have a funny story to tell you. So once upon a time I gave one of My albums to Soeur Rodriguez. She opened it up (she finishes her mission on Wednesday. She has been serving in New Cal. ) and goes. Wow! This is amazing! Who’s Kristina Evonne? (The same thing happened earlier when I showed Sista Otukolo a few days ago. Our mission leader also did the same thing. That is a long story.) I just smiled and tried not to laugh as it clicked. “This is so cool!!!” Haha! It is so cool. Sr. Rod and I talked about what it was like to make an Album. We figured we could listen to a few. So she listened to Knock Down the Barrier and Moved to Georgia. Thank you for your hours that you put into making the album possible. I love it. It brings so many wonderful memories with it when I think about it. My favorite part was hanging out in the studio with you. and asking you and mama lyric advice. and adventuring with you and mama to set up sounds at concerts. I treasure it.
(Dad about when God refers to himself as I am you have to look up that sentence in the Jisas the Kraes book by James… Talmadge. You will love it. )
I love football. I love the lessons. Thank you for sending what you have learned.
I pray for you and mama everyday.
When I see the Nabunga tree I’ll think of my family. There is so much to be grateful for. There is so much good.

This week…
We had an exchange with Sista Myae
Please keep brata Edgel on the prayer list! (He has been reading his Buk Blong Momon. We just started teaching him lst week..)
Transfer calls (Round… I’ve lost track. One year in Ohlen)
We got special permission to help with a project called stap Helti. I got to play my guitar and we did some activities to teach pikinini about health!

I’ve ate at least 10 mangos that have fallen from the trees this week.

Yesterday we had a really neat experience with one of the papas who was baptized a few years ago. His name is Papa Pakoa. He was baptized about four years ago. He has diabetes and had to get one of his legs amputated. In the process of the operation he came in contact with the missionaries. Later he wheeled himself, , up the rocky and dusty heels to church. A year later he had to get his other leg amputated. We have not visited him in quite a while. As we visited him he was delighted to see missionaries and told us we were always welcome. He shared with us that even though he can’t attend Jos because his wheel chair is broken. He reads his Buk Blong Momon faithfully. He shared with us a scripture he had come across that when Jisas Kraes comes back to the earth and the body is restored to its perfect state, he will be able to walk with two legs once again. Papa Pakoa wept as he expressed his gratitude to the Savior. Sista Nila and I shared a few tears of gratitude with the papa too.
This experience reminded me of how blessed we are to have the knowledge of the Gospel of Jisas Kraes. It really does change lives. I’m so grateful for this gospel and the chance I have to share this good news with the souls in Vanuatu.

I love you all so very much!!! Have an amazing week.
