This week Elder Russell and his companion have been spending much of their time listening for the directions of the spirit as to where they should do their contacting and who they should contact. They've been able to give out several Book of Mormons and are hoping that some follow up visits will generate new investigators.
Dexter remains their most promising investigator and he is continuing to read the Book of Mormon and pray. He's had a few spiritual experiences since he's begun seeing the elders and he has a testimony of priesthood blessings and the comfort they bring when dealing with life's challenges.
As for Thanksgiving, it sounds like the missionaries in Chris' district will all meet together at the senior couple's apartment and celebrate there. As a mom, I am so grateful for Elder And Sister Reed and for the support that they provide to my missionary and the many kind acts that they perform on the behalf of my missionary and the members of their Ukrainian Branch. I know that they are a wonderful support to the Branch in their area.
Once again, many thanks to all who are interested in our son's mission, and we are especially grateful for all of the prayers that are offered on his behalf.
