Family, This has been a really busy week. I have noticed we have lots of people who want us to see them and just not enough time in the day to see them all. So very busy week. Really cool to see all those members I remember and those who I was working with before I left Marshall the first time. We are teaching a lot and getting things done so we hope to have some baptisms here soon. I am excited for Thanksgiving this week. Thankfully, we have people to have us over and should be a good day of spending time with the members and eating some good food. This past Friday, the branch had a Thanksgiving dinner and it was great. We had lots of people there and lots of our investigators. It was a great opportunity to have them get together with those that we are teaching and get them to create friendships with the members of the branch. There were lots of people that came and I wasn't expecting to come so that is really sweet. Having already been here, I am really trying this time to have a better relationship with the spanish members and investigators. Having served here with Elder Perez, who is fluent, I didn't need to speak much spanish but I'm definitely speaking a lot now. It is working great right now and really enjoying translating and having a better contact with the spanish members. We had a cool experience this week in teaching this investigator from Micronesia. We went to stop by and see him and he was outside talking to 2 of his friends (also from Micronesia) that live next door. They were a little hesitant at first to talk to us but we warmed up with them and the investigator invited us to come in and teach him a long with is 2 friends. We had an awesome lesson about scriptures and prophets and the power of prayer. The spirit was there and really helped testify to them that what we were saying was true. It went really well and gave everyone a Book of Mormon and all agreed to have us over another time to learn more. It was really sweet and they loved the chance to learn and grow from the scriptures. Past Friday we also had zone conference over by Kansas City and that went really good as well. Lots of travel but it went really good and happy to go and be uplifted and trained on what to do. So this was a really good week. Thanks for everything! Have an awesome Thanksgiving! Love Elder Roe
