November 22

My new comp, Elder Siebach, is from Naperville, Illinois. (He's the one on the right, shown here earlier this fall, before his transfer from the south.)

He says there is only one Siebach family in the U.S. He’s not sure how he is related to dad’s old roommate with the same name. He is cool. We like similar music. He’s been to Lollapalooza a few times. Anyone that has done that is chill with me, haha. As a missionary, Christmas music is taking the place of other music.

Carson City was fun. It is always fun to chill with the other spanams. Pres Black talked to us and the APs (assistants to the president) helped us out a little bit.

We set up an appointment with a hispanic family for this week. They are super nice. Hopefully that will go well. We also had a couple other lessons. Most importantly we had a girl in Schurz tell us she wants to be taught. She is a friend of Lilly (who we baptized). And hopefully her mom will sit in on the lessons.

We play in a mission “turkey bowl” on Thanksgiving. It’s zone vs zone touch football. We play that in Reno on Thursday morning; it will be way fun. We should win. Then we go to bishop’s house for thanksgiving 1 and later to the Clifton’s for thanksgiving 2. It should be a good day with lots of food and games and stuff. It’ll be fun.

By the way, here's my crowd, pre-transfer:
