Good Productive Week

Taught Andrew Reyna a lesson at the church.

We taught family history classes on Thursday and Sunday (small groups so we could give individual attention, as needed).

Helped Michael start his family tree.

Helped Millie and Kevin start their family trees.

Took some CIS applications over to Mirta.  Mirta is trying to help her 80 year old mother with her U.S. Citizenship requirements.  Joe is progressing very well after his surgery.

We met with Candida (our sweet neighbor from El Salvador) with the elders.  Later, we took her to the church and the elders helped her and Pedro with some on-line job applications.  Afterwards, the elders gave her a tour of the church building, and we watched a short video (in Spanish) of the celebration and dedication of the temple in El Salvador.  The spirit was really strong.  Candida and Pedro are moving from their apartment to a house tomorrow.  Elder Alvarenga is going to get their new address and pass it to the Spanish-speaking missionaries.

Mary is finally out of the hospital. 

We drove Gloria to her post-op appointment this morning.  The doctor said she is doing really well.  We hope she will be able to come back to church when she's healed up sufficiently.  She is very happy that the healing process is progressing so well.  Gloria said we need to get some boots and become Texans.

We had district meeting on Friday.

We had Stake Conference on Saturday and Sunday.  After the Saturday evening session we were able to talk to our former bishop (Orem 60th Ward, Utah, 1977-1979) Albert Haines and his wife Norma.  That was fun.

Tonight Lei Lani brought some chili and cornbread for us and the elders.  She has also been helping in the family history class, as needed. 

We are going to miss our new friends when we go home.  December is our last month.
