Just two days and I will get to see your fabulous faces!
It was a good week. We have one progressing investigator right now named Maria. We visited with her this last week and she had a ton of great questions! And she answered all the questions in the back of the pamphlets (my companions said that never happens). We are really hoping that she will get baptized! (We asked her and she said she will once she receives an answer). So pray for Maria and her sister Laura that they will read and pray to receive answers.
We had our ward Christmas party on Saturday! Hahaha Oh man that was a hoot. They were doing a skit of the nativity, and suddenly they would just stop what they were doing and start dancing and doing the salsa It made no sense but everyone was loving it. We had THREE investigating families show up! It was super awesome. Unfortunately our ward members aren't fans of branching out. Not a single member talked to any of the investigators there. That is where a lot our work needs to go in! But I know that over time it will get better :)
Yesterday we had our Christmas conference! It was in Forest Grove so about an hour and a half away. President and Sister Samuelian spoke to us about how we can spread the light of Christ. They talked about how the greatest gift that we can give to the Lord is spreading the light and always trying to become more like him. We had a big family home evening with members and investigators that came to listen to the missionaries sing. The spirit was awesome! The Christmas hymns are awesome.
Well I am just super excited to talk to the fam! And nothing else too big happened this week! But! Lets all try to be a little more Christ-like and share the light! There is no other greater gift that we can receive than the Savior's Atonement!
I love you all!
P.s....They handed out everyone’s packages at the conference. Both of my companions got 6 packages, and I got nothing. So maybe one day you will all love me. hahah (I still have the package from you though mom :) )
P.s.s...Christmas isn't about gifts, so I am trying to not be bitter about it. hahah
|I have all your notes up on my wall :)|
