Week 85: Three Thanksgiving dinners

Hey Everyone,

So this past week was a little rough. We were unable to meet with Vivick and Sonu because they were busy with studying for exams. Then on top of that the Paul family didn't attend church. Elder Lakshmanan and I already discussed that if they don't attend church or keep their commitment of reading the BOM then we will have to move onto someone new.

But on the bright side we had not one. not two, but three thanksgiving dinners. The first dinner was with the Session Family (Ex-Pat). They are a young family in 2nd Branch. They meet in the same church building as us at 11Am. There was 20 total people total in attendance. It was amazing to have a typical American Thanksgiving on the other side of the world. It was funny because half the people were Americans and the other half were Indians. So its kinda similar to the history of thanksgiving on how the Pilgrims and the Native Americans stopped fighting to share a feast. Then later that night we had another dinner but with the Massey family. This was our round 2 of Thanksgiving because they had all american food.

Then on Saturday 12 of us missionaries traveled to the Goldrup (Ex-Pat) household for another Thanksgiving dinner.The food was super tasty. Sister Goldrup even made Jello with pretzels... I know that sounds weird but it was pretty tasty. Then On Sunday Sister Parker gave us Honey ham. It's been about 23 months since I've had honey ham. I was on cloud 9.
