|Fixing Thanksgiving dinner|
To be honest, I don't really know what to say about this week..... Not all that much happened. Thanksgiving was really good. Since no one celebrates Thanksgiving in Finland (I know.... Weird ;) ) we created a celebration ourselves. We invited Mac and Fai and one of Sister Raphael's former companions who is practically Finnish and is home for medical things. She came and brought 2 friends and Fai brought her 9 year-old little sister who is just SO cute! I think she is finally warming up to us too. The dinner turned out pretty good and we shared a thought on things we were grateful for and then wrote "thank you " letters to those that we could send to people. Fai's little sister, Anu, ended up giving us a thank you letter and it was so cute.

Racoon Dog & White Elephant
Sister Raphael's highlight of the week was seeing a Raccoon Dog. haha. We saw this guy that was taking a ton of pictures of it in the dark so she asked what he was doing and we found out he was taking pictures of a Raccoon Dog which apparently is super, super rare. So I guess that was a pretty cool thing that happened. Oh yeah! This week we also had a Relief Society Christmas party where we played White Elephant. hat is apparently is not a familiar thing in Finland. When the Relief Society President explained it everyone was so excited and it was clear that most of them had never heard about it before. It was really fun though. Let's just say that I must be good at unwrapping gifts because 4 of the things that I picked got stolen from me and no one else really got anything stolen from them, haha, but really I didn't care much. It was fun anyway. :) Well, I am sorry that this is a pretty lame email. Not much happened this week. Our investigators, for the most part, are doing good. T. was unable to meet with us all week but we are meeting with himand other than that the rest dropped us. Kinda sad but we are just trying to find new people that the Lord has prepared and to start sharing the true meaning of Christmas!
I love you all. Thanks for your love and support!
