Week of November 22, 2015

Hey Everyone,

This week was a a pretty good week. It has started to get cold on thanksgiving when we woke up it was -5 degrees. It doesn't really snow here it just rains ice and then blows around all day its pretty miserable honestly. On the plus side when we go out and knock doors when its cold and windy more people let us in we got let in a door to teach a lesson tracting for the first time since I have been here so that was pretty exciting. 

This week Elder Trejo and I set a goal to teach 16 lessons. Going into the last day we had 13 lessons and we have been trying really hard this week to reach our goals. A big focus in the mission has been to set realistic but faith filled goals. They told a funny story There were 2 sisters a few months ago who were driving and they ran out of gas and instead of calling for help they decided to take a water bottle that was in the car and say a prayer over the water that it would turn to gas... They then dumped the water bottle into the gas tank... Long story short they ended up ruining the engine and totaling the car... The faith that these two sisters had was amazing but they were not realistic. They told us that we need to make our goal realistic and not just faith filled but we also need to have faith while we are setting our goals. 
We also spoke in church this week. It went well, We talked about taking the name of Christ upon us. It was a pretty good topic to speak on, the talks went good. 

I hope you are all having a great holiday!! 

I love and miss you all,


Elder Brinkerhoff
