Well shoot, January is almost over, this is the second to last week of the transfer and time feel como si era volando! No se porque tiene que ir tan rapido pero asi es. En mi correo a papi envie algunos picturas from the beginning of the week but yesterday I wasn’t able to e-mail. Instead, the library was closed, but we were able to do a ton of service!
So yesterday I attended a multi faith religious service with the other 27 missionaries in the Fort Worth stake, and the councilor to the mission president. We sang in the choir, and we were there first of all to do service for the community, we were involved in a project of taking all of the faiths, or a large portion of them and volunteering in service in remembrance of Martin Luther King Jr. It was wonderful and really got us known among so many who would just refer to us a Mormons.
This was our service group, 6 missionaries ( two left before the pictures) and some people and their “mother” from their episcopal church.
All 600 volunteers got a free lunch of Subway, with seconds! They had us sit in an organized way so we were mixed with other people, and the mayor of Fort Worth spoke.
We then finished the service but they needed help to move the 6000 lunches they had made for the homeless, and while we waited, the pastor of the Baptist church where the lunch was held gave us a tour of their sanctuary, with the largest French organ in the united states
They were super amazing people, and told us a good deal about the building, the chapel seems more gothic in style which is quite uncommon for Baptists, but the architect decided they needed it
Then the lunches arrived, this is about half, between 10 elders it took about an hour and a half to move all of them to a few storage rooms
Have a great week and thank you for your e-mail!
