Sunday, December 1st.

Our wheelchair trainers came to church with us this morning. It was Fast Sunday and Elder Schnebly wanted to bear his testimony. He served his mission in Tonga a couple of years after Alan was here. He had a hard time trying to find an opening so he just went up and sat on the stand to wait for a turn. Our Fast Sunday meetings don’t have a lot of dead time. They are really good.

Our Sunday School class was great today. We have a new member in the class. His was baptized this last week. He lived in America and got into some trouble there. He was deported to Tonga and now is trying to put his life in order. He hung on everything we said and asked some good questions. It will really be good to have him in the class. We loved teaching a new member again.

After church we headed home so I could put another Thanksgiving dinner together. The Schnebly’s and Blake had to travel on Thanksgiving and didn’t get a turkey dinner. I heated up the left over turkey, made some more dressing, mashed potatoes and gravy with a salad and all the trimmings. I even made some rolls. The house was hot, even with our little air conditioner and fan going, but the food was great and they were really surprised. They loved it and I was glad that I went to the trouble to do it for them. They came at 2:30 and didn’t leave until after 7:00. That is just a little too long! Especially when we had all those dishes to do. We are tired already and the week hasn’t even started yet.
