It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!!!! :) Today it has rained/hailed/sleeted/slushed/iced and now it's snowing! I hope everyone had a fabulous Thanksgiving. We ended up having two huge meals within three hours of each other; one at the Van Haaften's and one at the trail center with all the sisters. I've never eaten so much food in my life! We put on a special Thanksgiving program for the trail center directors, president and his wife, and all the senior couples. Then we got to watch The Best Two Years! If you don't know what that is, it's a movie about missionaries and I remember watching it when I was younger but probably didn't think it was that funny. Now that I'm actually a missionary it was hilarious! We all had a great time. This week Sister Strong and I helped the Scotts decorate their Christmas tree and make homemade applesauce! They are so sweet and gave us some to take home and also some strawberry peach jam that Sister Scott had made. Some good/bad news! The bad news - Christy canceled last week so we weren't able to have the lesson at the member's home and we still haven't been able to contact her. :( Good news - I invited someone for the first time to baptism and she said YES!! Her name is Jenny and she's already praying and reading her scriptures so we just need to get her to church and she'll be set! We still haven't decided on a date but she leaves for the peace core some time in January so it will need to happen before then. That and going to the temple would probably be my highlights for the week! Everything is going great in the area and the trail center is busier than ever! The church came out with a new Christmas campaign the other day and it's so awesome! If you haven't seen it already you should check it out. There are two videos (A Savior Is Born and Imagine A World Without A Savior) so make sure you watch both of them, and then there's also a fun advent calendar and other fun stuff. www.mormon.org/christmas That's it for this week! Everybody stay warm. :) Love, Sister Irwin P.S. This is a week late but the Nebrasquad has reached 1 month!
