Holy moly. These weeks just fly by so quick! I mean, I only have one more week and then I am done with training... AHHHHHHHH it's so crazy. Mission time is just weird. My goodness.

No-Shave November.... LOL!!!

So this week was another busy one! Sister Nicol and I have just been workin' workin' workin' away. I am so excited for the Christmas season though! We set up a Christmas tree in our apartment and some lights and we have some Christmassy scented candles and some rockin' (but approved) Christmas music and so we are set. And my favorite part about the Christmas season is handing out pass along cards that say, "He is the gift." Those cards have a link to an amazing video. Sooooooo please please please go to and watch the video that pops up!! Seriously, there is nothing more important about the season than remembering Christ and all that He has done for us. Because of Him, we have so many blessings! So many! He was born, He lived, He died, and He rose again for us, and because of that, we can be cleansed and forgiven and have a perfect hope for our future as we strive to become who we have been put on earth to become. Heavenly Father wants us to rejoice and be happy as we strive to follow Christ's example and prepare ourselves for that day when we will return to Him. So everyone, remember the true reason we celebrate Christmas. It is to remember and rejoice in Christ, for He is our Savior, and He is the reason we have the hope of redemption and glory. Watch the video and share it with all of your friends! ALL OF THEM! EVERYONE NEEDS TO SEE IT!!!! For reals.

A Random 'EGG'-plant we came across... HaHaHa

Anyways, this week we had our Branch Christmas party, which was pretty rockin'. We helped a member prepare some food for the event, and also helped set up the decor, and a lot of people came! It was wonderful!!! And it was kind of funny because we ended up singing non-religious Christmas songs and so I felt kind of weird haha, but overall it was awesome and we ate a TON of food and dessert.

Me with an ADORABLE little boy from our branch :)

As far as the missionary work goes, we have a huge branch roster and a lot of less actives, so we have been spending our days trying to contact them. And boy it has been requiring a lot of work! We keep missing people and some don't even live at those addresses anymore, so we have just been traveling and trying to update the list.

Okay, so five people this week have told me that I look like Luna Lovegood from Harry Potter. Just throwing that out there.

It's freezing here in Indiana.... I mean it's FROZEN!!!

Last night, Sister Nicol and I had the opportunity to watch the 1st Presidency Christmas Devotional at a part-member family's house, and it was awesome. Seriously - if you haven't had the chance to see it yet, GO WATCH IT!! It was amazing... two of my most favorite speakers EVER spoke and so I was in heaven.

FUNNY STORY!! So we got a media referral this week and we went to go contact them. They live in Fort Wayne and it was kind of later at night and we were in this cute neighborhood and we can hear this rap music blasting from one of the houses, which turned out to be the house of the referral. We walk up to their door, and we saw through the garage window that they had turned the garage in to a workout/exercise area and they were just working out like crazy while listening to this heavy rap music. We knocked quite a few times, and nobody could hear us I guess cause the music was so loud. And the whole situation was just kind of comical so Sister Nicol and I were just cracking up! It was hilarious. 

Anyways, love you all!

Have a blessed week!

Love Sister Feil
