Staying in Silverdale! A Miracle of "Faith"

Dearest Most Wonderful Family:

HAPPY THANKSGIVING this week. Although my body and food intake will be in Washington my spirit and thoughts will be in California with you and all those missionaries coming over for dinner. They are lucky to have the best Thanksgiving dinner ever. We will be treated well in Silverdale 1st ward. Three families have agreed to have us come over for dinner or dessert and many others have offered. Thankfully, for transfers, Elder Sharp and I are both staying here. That means we'll get to be here for Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, etc. I am very happy about that. I really love this area and this ward and the work has really been exciting.

I don't have a lot of time this week for e-mail because I got a lot of e-mails from others (which was great - thank you!) and my friend and convert Dennis from Westport e-mails me each week with Jewish history and things he's been learning in his Hebrew translation classes ha, ha.

Suggs family with Faith
The best part of this week was meeting Faith, our 10 year old girl we're teaching. The Suggs family has befriended her and is amazing fellowship. They invited us over Saturday night to teach her the first lesson. She says that she wants to be baptized because she missed it when she turned 8 and wants to follow Jesus Christ and be with Heavenly Father. So cute!!! She already knows the primary hymns and Articles of Faith. We agreed to a tentative baptism date of December 27th! a Christmas miracle. Her grandpa from California wants to come up and be the one to baptize her so it will depend on when they can make it up. They had us over for lunch after church and we watched the Restoration video with them. It is so fun teaching in a member's home and teaching a sweet, humble child. We are working on getting her less active mom to come to our lesson this Saturday which is on the Plan of Salvation.
Silverdale Zone meeting
We had a good lesson with Jolene on Tuesday night with our stake president and bishop! She said she believes that this is all true, but is hesitant to stop going to her church because she is so involved there, which makes sense. She wasn't able to make it to church with us again because her son Sergio is in the hospital again, so please pray for him!

Have a great week!

Scripture: 3 Nephi 9:13-15

And a general conference quote: "I am a witness,” Elder Ballard said, “that there is a spirit attending the administration of the sacrament that warms the soul from head to foot; you feel the wounds of the spirit being healed, and the load being lifted. Comfort and happiness come to the soul that is worthy and truly desirous of partaking of this spiritual food.” (from Sister Cheryl A. Esplin, "The Sacrament - a Renewal for the Soul")
