November has come!

Hey everyone!  This week was pretty good.  We were able to do a bit of work and at the same time have a bit of fun.  This Wednesday we received another instruction from the Julanders about goals and making plans that will help us for the future.  They also talked about not building too much stress or trying to become perfect.  Elder Julander said that sometimes, "We just need to let it go."  None of us are perfect so we shouldn't bring ourselves down because we aren't.  Rather just do our best and know that we have done all the Lord expects of us.
Then on Friday, we had a little Halloween feast... meaning I tried to make brownies and since we don't have an oven I tried to bake them on the stove.  We mostly just had brownie batter.  But then one of the elder bought Fan Ice and Fanta and we had fanta floats.  It was pretty good and fun.  Nice to be able to enjoy a little bit after we came back.  
Then on Saturday we were supposed to have a football match with the Young Men, but not enough people showed up and no one had a ball!  Things here are very disorganized and that is kind of frustrating.  But I guess that is what we are here to help fix.
Then yesterday we were able to finally watch General Conference!  I was way excited for that.  It was powerful and I can't wait to get the Liahona to be able to read the rest of the talks.  I was only able to watch a session and a half, as we got there an hour late (we were told the wrong time).  But it was sweet!
As I was reading the Book of Mormon this week there was a scripture that stood out to me.  Moroni 9:6.  An amazing scripture.  We all need to labor diligently.  Do all that we can to help bring others to righteousness.  Missionary work is a divine work, a work for everyone.
Well, I love you all!!!
