Thanksgiving was pretty awesome. we went to the cute lil house of the gringo family the Pierces, and somehow they found a turkey in cusco...which was cooked like a dream and we had mashed potatoes and gravy and fruit salad, salad, chibata bread, and stuffing! (martha stewart worthy), cake and icecream and we made banana bread. So all in all I would say it was a very fruitful thanksgiving, I couldn't have asked for anything better except to be with all of you crazy people. 

We did a scavenger hunt for the kids here and it was pretty fun, kinda stressful, especially when these kids are sometimes...a struggle...but I'm sure they had fun. the best part was at the end of the scavenger hunt when we had the kids looking for the "treasure" (candy) that we buried in the patio of my pensionista, and me and Hermana Davis were inside waiting for the other group of kids to come back and we go outside and all the kids are holding hands and dancing ha ha Hermana Juana (our pensionista) was making them dance before getting the treasure ha ha ha it was a great sight. 

we had the primary program which I played the piano for which really turned out a miracle. during the practices these are types of the things Hermana Davis and i would say...
"wow we are not going to have kids....ever...."
"I hope I NEVER get called as primary president"
ha ha but alas came sunday and the program literally went Perfectlyyy and even the songs I was really bad at playing went fine...Hermana Davis and I were like "what is going on" 
God really is a God of miracles, and I had an epiphany about the children. this week talking to a lot of people and having a lot of people reject us and be super stubborn in their ways, we really do need to be like little children and humble ourselves like it says in Mathew  "Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven"and its so true! during our activities with the kids every week when we teach the kids how to pray and stuff they just accept it and DO it, and then when we teach adults some literally REFUSE to do it! I have learned that we have to be humble and submit ourselves to Heavenly Father's will even when its hard to accept or when His will requires some sort of sacrifice on our part. the first law of heaven is obedience and obedience requires humility.

Its the start of the BEST time of the year!!!!!!!! we have been singing christmas hyms everyday for a couple of months now but now its official haha

love yall, and hope you have a amazing first week of chirstams!!!!!
