"Out of the Frying Pan and into Fire"

I can´t believe my half birthday is just around the corner (we all know how Thanksgiving is a great build-up for my half-birthday.) It is a pretty cool turkey that Justin shot. All you need now is to dress up as pilgrims and Indians and you can all have an old fashioned traditional thanksgiving. 

In my district there are the Zone Leaders, the Assistants to the President, and the Elders from San Pedro. This week we had a wild district meeting. First of all the assistants actually came (they usually visit other zones). After finishing the the opening song President Willard walks in to join us for the district meeting too (which is super rare because he has never come to one of my district meetings.) And so that left me teaching all these people. And usually in the district meeting we talk about the challenges of our investigators and analyze them. Then I do a practice with another elder acting as the investigator to show the district how to apply the principles that we just discussed and then we pause and talk about what went well and to improve on. So that was a "out of the frying pan and into fire" moment when the assistants and president showed up. As district leader I also do exchanges with the elders, call to do verification, call for the numbers, and basically the progress of the district.

Anyway, that was the biggest thing that happened this week.  Here are some photos of the garden.The big dirt mound is an ant hill. A lot bigger from back home.

 A botanical garden we went to last week. 

We climbed to the top of the tower and you can see just how flat Santa Cruz is.
