Medford - Week 25

Hola Madre y Padre,

Another great week.

Saint Vinnys is always fun!  Nadine a less active lady that sent you that pic of us.  She's super awesome. She made me cookies for my bday. Yummy cookies. She has the same bday as I do haha.

Seeing the Williams was fun!  It was good talking with him.  He's a good guy. Thank you for all the food.  Food is the best gift haha. It's nice having lots of food.

Had J.'s baptism interview that's last week.  Everything is good for this Friday for his baptism now.  Super exciting.  F. and D. are still progressing as well.  Hopefully they will have a baptismal
date as well soon.

Helped out in Eagle Point with a service project.  Helped Hermano Clanton out.  They had a huge Dutch ovens competition.  Bomb food! The town reminds me of Placerville.  Super cool little town.  I want to start cooking in Dutch ovens haha.

Had a yummy breakfast at the Wrights Sunday morning.  Bomb food.  He's our branch mission leader.  They are white people but he speaks Spanish.  We always have good deep doctrine conversations with him.  He's super awesome.  Smart guy.

Had stake conference on Sunday as well.  All of Oregon had conference. They did a broadcasting with Elder Anderson and President Monson.  It was cool listening to them speak again.  It was weird that it was state wide.

Forgot to have you tell Janine thanks for the Halloween package and also the ward for the Halloween cards.  It's nice getting stuff like that.

So I'm studies this week this popped out to me.

10 Jesus saith to him, He that is washed needeth not save to wash his feet, but is clean every whit: and ye are clean, but not all.

11 For he knew who should betray him; therefore said he, Ye are not all clean.

12 So after he had washed their feet, and had taken his garments, and was set down again, he said unto them, Know ye what I have done to you?

13 Ye call me Master and Lord: and ye say well; for so I am.

14 If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; ye also ought to wash one another’s feet.

15 For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you.

16 Verily, verily, I say unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord; neither he that is sent greater than he that sent him.

17 If ye know these things, happy are ye if ye do them. John 13:10-17

So since Thanksgiving and Christmas are coming up, tis the season.  We need to look for those opportunities to serve one another.  Christ set that example for us by washing the feet of the Apostles but we don't literally have to wash someone's feet but we need to provide service for others and invite them to learn more of the Gospel.

Well love you guys!

Hope you have an amazing week!
