Elder and Sister Frost arrived last Thursday.  Sister Frost will serve as our mission nurse (she is a Physician's Assistant), and both will also work with the young single adults in the Granada Stake.  Welcome!
Thanksgiving is a wonderful American holiday where we focus on gratitude for all the blessings God has given us.  We also eat.  Mucho.  Our non-American fellow missionaries love trying the food and seeing what this holiday is all about, while the Americans cherish a little taste of home.  Those of us serving here so far away from home are so grateful for a loving "mission family", our families back home, and above all the gospel truths we seek to share.  Happy Thanksgiving!

The Wiscombes took good care of the missionaries in La Mancha with a beautiful Thanksgiving dinner.  Pictured are Hermanas Ancalle and Stradling, Elders Gonzalez, Miranda, Turley, Chavez, Alomia, Kiffe, Simon, Quinn and Flores.

Even though the Redds just arrived last week, they had the Caceres and Badajoz missionaries over for a Thanksgiving dinner too.  Elders Olsen, red, Sister Noriega, Elder Webb, Sister Meneses, Elders Narcizo and Reid. 

The Malaga Zone gave thanks together in one grand dinner! 

More Malaga missionaries!

More Malaga missionaries!

Still more Malaga missionaries, with a few special guests!

Elders Hannemann and Webb practiced for weeks making rolls for the big day.  When they arrived a little late with about 100 warm rolls we all cheered.  Sisters Hannemann and Webb can just let these two make rolls from now on...
