We celebrated Thanksgiving with the missionaries in Bloemfontein today Monday November 24, 2014. We celebrated it today because it is p-day and the missionaries can have zone actvities on Mondays. Thanksgiving is not a holiday here in South Africa so if we had Thanksgiving on Thursday the missionaries would have only 1 hour to celebrate. Elder and Sister Carlile and Elder and Sister Huls and Elder Edington and I made Thanksgiving dinner with as many of the trimmings as we could find. We had turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, green beans, homemade rolls, candied sweet potatoes, pomegranate jello salad, cranberries and lemon, pumpkin and pecan pie. We had a wonderful time.
