November 26, 2011


We had two new missionaries come this week. They waited for their visas for quite some time, but they finally arrived. La Costa del Sol is staying warm - I think it was about 70 today. Not too bad. It has rained a few times, but not very often. The Primary in the Spanish-speaking ward asked me to accompany them for their program tomorrow. It will be fun.

We had a great Thanksgiving dinner at the mission home with Presidente and Hermana Clegg. The whole Malaga Zone came for the meal and we had a great time. There were a couple of missionaries from Ecuador and they brought rice, and they were the only ones who ate it. It was really funny. There was turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, cranberry sauce, rolls, green beans, carrots, and, being from Iowa, I brought some corn.

The former Elder Niebergall, now he's just Kyle Niebergall, came and visited with his family! He ended his mission in Huelva with me, and he was the mission secretary before Elder Stoner. It was great to see him.

We have seen and experienced some interesting challenges, but, as always, the challenges give us opportunities to apply the teachings of Christ and draw closer to Him. Elder Taylor continues to be a great companion. We are excited to be together and be in Fuengirola for Christmas (after that, we don't know what will happen).

We are doing well. I am really grateful for you. Thanks for everything. I know that this is God's work. He lives and He loves us.

Elder Fagersten
