dear family,
this week was kind of a slower week but we are making some progress with the ward and getting them to help us.  we are having a special sacrament meeting next week.  where the talks will be focused on the restoration of the gospel and each member is invited to bring someone.  we did a little activity during sunday school yesterday where they had to find chocolates around the room, and the after we related it to missionary work and reminded them invite friends for next sunday.  also we have a different member every day this week to come with us and teach so we are making a lot of progress there.  Our 84 year old investigator moved her baptism date closer to december 7th so that was a miracle!  she said she talked to all of her children and they all support her and she is really excited about it.  She chose the 7th because she had 7 kids, there were 7 people in her family, she had 7 operations...etc haha she had a whole list of things. she decided the 7th would just be perfect haha. so that was really a miracle.  Shes the one that the missionaries started teaching about 20 years ago.  She is so funny!  She also has jello for us every time we come.  Our other investigator that is close to baptism, still needs to move out of her house and she has plans to do so within the next week or two so we are hoping she will be baptized this week or next week.  So pray for them!!  we are looking for some more investigators this week.  we found a lot of old investigators in the area book that we are going to go searching for this week. some of them had been to church more than 10 times so we are going to go see what happened and hopefully we can start teaching them again!  
Thats awesome that you are going to mexico.  My companion is excited about that haha.  She misses her Mexican food haha so if you find anything from Mexico that you can send us she would appreciate it haha.  For thanksgiving we are going to the stake presiden'ts dads house.  but we also have a zone conference that day with Elder Cornish from the area 70 so i hoope we will still be able to go. they do celebrate thanksgiving here but i have a feeling it will be rice, beans, platanos, pasteles, and pork.  haha but thats ok.  its the reason we celebrate thats important not the food!  
lots of love to you all!!  remember how much Heavenly Father loves us and whatever we ask righteously in the name of Christ we will recieve! 

xoxo hermana cole
