so how was everyones week! thank you for the emails i did receive! email me if you havent. please. i miss you.
well nothing really happened this week. just work and walking and proselyting. and taksibe riding. i love hangin out the back of those things. they dont go to fast but there is a lotta swerving and bumps in the road so i would advise two hands. but what is everyone doing for thanksgiving? i expect a lotta pics. we are havin turkey, home fed and prepared. if youd like to join us i live way close to the airport. i could come pick you up, its only like 10 min taksibe ride from my house, we'll have fresh turkey and if you left today youd make it by thursday! youd miss turkey bowl (which was this morning) and also be out a couple thousands of dollars but its nbd. stay home or where you are haha but we had some football this morning! it was way fun. the usual malagasies showed up that we usually played soccer with so they wouldnt let us play football till we played a little soccer so we did for about half an hour. we won 2-1 and i scored off a penalty. it was fun. then football with the other missionaries! it was way fun. its not the same on dirt though...
the only things that really happened this week was koplin stayed home sick, dont worry i am still healthy. stomach pains here and there but what can ya do? but i stayed home with em so our areas could still be hit. they had member help so it worked out. BUT we killed a rat in the evening...pics to come and oh the sky looked sick since it just finished raining. pics.
OH and i gave the lesson in district meeting this week. it was on being Christlike. classic Schroedter lesson huh? haha but chapter six in Preach My Gospel. read it, learn it, live it. there are so many scriptures. i like Ether 12:6 (faith), or 1 Cor 11 or 13 (charity) etc, but youre challenge this week is to read that, but really to pray each day for a chance to grow in one of the attributes. and pray specifically for a different one each day. (faith, hope, charity and love, diligence, obedience, humility, virtue, knowledge, and patience) this transfer and last, my patience has been tested to its limits. we learn and grow more everyday. i also mentioned in my lesson the fact the we have the potential and ability to become Gods or be Godlike and we have been given this time here on earth "to prepare to meet God" and to repent and learn. but we arent just instantly going to become Gods, we arent going to be as God, charitable, loving, merciful, etc., unless we put that work in now. so theres your challenge, similar to past but we should all be trying to be better and more Christlike all the time, every week, every day, every thought, and every action. it all starts with your commitment to Christ. there is your challenge. tell me your experiences, please.
well thats about all i got! have an AMAZING Thanksgiving! i love you all very much and would love you more if you ALL emailed me back haha but ill get what i can. only so much i can do from half way around the world. i miss you all. i love you all. i pray for you all.
Elder Schroedter out.
