So this week was a bit tougher than the others. We are struggling to find some new investigators and the ones that we have aren't progressing very well. So we are trying to find new ways how we are going to find new investigators. We talked to President Derbez and talked to him about what we are doing and how we think we will find new investigators. Well he told us that it wasn't the best idea and he talked to us and had us think a lot about how we can find new investigators through a better way. So we came up with the conclusion that what he has been telling us this whole time is what we need to do. The Book of Mormon is the best missionary tool that we have and we need to use it. He then told us the best way to use it is by visiting the youth and teaching them about it and getting them excited to share the gospel with their friends. So we are going to try that this week and see how things go.
So I probably won't do anything for Thanksgiving which is ok. I might make my own Thanksgiving dinner for my companion and I. Ha ha. I am planning on sending home a Christmas package for the family, hopefully it gets there on time.
I love you all and hope you have a happy Thanksgiving.
Love Elder Thorpe
