Medford - Week 23

Hola Madre,

This week was another great week working out in the Lords vineyard.

So the days are always full of adventures.  If you aren't having fun you aren't doing it right.

So Monday we always have dinner with the Clanton family.  He had us eat a red Habernero which was surprisingly not hot at all.  It was a trick haha.  Elder Thacker doesn't like hot stuff so he was scared to eat it but I just ate it all.  Pretty funny.  For P-Day we also played basketball and chilled at the Mall for a couple hours.  It's awesome that there is a Mall here!

Tuesday morning we always help in St. Vinnys kitchen feeding the poor and needy.  We meet some really interesting people there.  The kitchen is a party though because some cool peeps help out.  We also work there Wednesday mornings as well.

Got to see Quinn and Derek.  That was a little weird seeing them haha. But it was really cool.  Thank you for the awesome package of tons of stuff haha.  I have food for days now.  Those cinnamon rolls are gone already.  Too good!  Thank you a bunch.

Helped out at a soccer thing that we were invited to.  We played  soccer with a bunch of little kids who were learning.  It was really fun to play some soccer and help little kids as well.

Had some good lessons with J. who is still working towards getting baptized Nov. 15.  He is so ready for baptism.  Super awesome guy!

Also working with D. y F.  They are starting to progress and love having us over now.

One night we had to drive all the way to Ashland.  Our area is huge! But we had a lesson down there at 8pm and she wanted this bath tub from her backyard out into her house.  That was a nightmare and Elder Thacker almost lost his leg haha.  We didn't get home till late.  Fun night.

The work in this area is really starting to pick up.  It's super  awesome to see how people change once they start learning about the Gospel.  The light of Christ really shows in them.

I don't know if I have shared this scripture with you, but it is one of my favorite scriptures about missionary work.

12 For there are many yet on the earth among all sects, parties, and denominations, who are blinded by the subtle craftiness of men,whereby they lie in wait to deceive, and who are only kept from the
truth because they know not where to find it--

13 Therefore, that we should waste and wear out our lives in bringing to light all the hidden things of darkness, wherein we know them; and they are truly manifest from heaven--

14 These should then be attended to with great earnestness. (D&C 123)

There are lots of people who are in the darkness and need someone to show them the light. That is our duty as members to show our brothers and sisters the truth.

No he didn't even punch me that hard.  Just wasn't expecting it haha.  (I told Derek to give Kevin a punch from me.  It meant more of a love tap, but apparently he really decked him the arm. Ha!)

Hope you have an amazing week!

Love you guys!

 Great pic of Kevin.  Love!
 Sent Kevin homemade sopa and anything I could find that was orange for Halloween.  Looks like they enjoyed it. :)
