Our many chefs.
After our feast, our district leader, Elder Nikolaichev, planned an activity based on The Title of Liberty as found in Alma 46. In verse 12 it reads, "And it came to pass that he rent his coat; and he took a piece thereof, and wrote upon it - In memory of our God, our religion, and freedom, and our peace, our wives, and our children..." Elder Nikolaichev, took his shirt (he had another one) and wrote, in Russian, "In memory of our god, our faith and families...of our Moscow mission, goals, and district of Zion." and instead of hoisting it on a pole we wrote our names on it. We all took turns wearing our Title of Liberty and expressing what we were thankful for.
We were then able to play a short round of Guesters before our missionaries left to get in a few hours of work before retiring for the day.
We had such a wonderful Thanksgiving as missionaries here in Moscow. How grateful we are for this opportunity to serve the Lord. And thus ended our day of thanksgiving as missionaries and as "...true believers of Christ..." Alma 46:14.
Our Happy Thanksgiving 2010!
