|Pres. Dieter F. Uchtdorf,|
2nd Couns. in First Presidency,
|Our "Home Evening" group|
(with a lot of missionaries in attendance)
|Pres. & Sis. Leavitt, Griselda,|
and Elder Deem (who taught her)
Sister Griselda Campos will be leaving us this week as she departs to go back to her home country on Thursday. She will be greatly missed. She has come so far in the gospel, and shines with the Spirit. We love her and hope that she will find all is well as she rejoins her family and shares with them the truths she has gained about the Savior.
The leaves are changing slowly, but very surely. As we drive around the area, and especially down to Bridgewater, we see a lot of beautiful sights in foliage, but don't get a chance to get a lot of pictures. We'll try to be a little more attentive to that, as we know the colors of fall in New England and Atlantic Canada can be breathtaking. So far, though, it is still mostly green.
|Thanksgiving dinner at the Choo's|
|Bro. & Sis. Hartling|
Our Canadian Thanksgiving was "stuffing". We had a really great dinner and visit with JJ and Sheldon and family, as well as Melissa. JJ is such a good cook, and Sheldon is so kind and gentle with everyone and allowing us to visit their home. We may never be able to repay them for all the kindnesses they extend to us on a regular basis. Melissa is always on the lookout for things she can do for us or give to us to make our living area so comfortable. Besides the Choo's (JJ & Sheldon) and Melissa, we had another Thanksgiving dinner on Monday with Sharon and Burt Hartling and their family. We work with her at the temple and really love her friendship and caring for us. They are both really great people.
Last week we had an opportunity to serve at the temple twice, again. Our normal assignment on Thursday was wonderful, as usual. We had some very spiritual moments with a few members from Newfoundland, and Elder and Sister Steffen. This couple was serving in Newfoundland, but have been moved to Amherst, Nova Scotia. They are also friends with Elder and Sister Tiffany who are serving in Guam (Elder Tiff's brother and sister-in-law). They came to the temple to be here with the Newfies they served with.
