This week was again was a fun one...
We were going to have 4 thanksgiving dinners but that miraculously trickled down to 2 (tender mercies) with our relief society president and our ward mission leader. The rest of the day was spent studying, writing and dropping off thank you cards, and a lesson with our amazing investigators. The mom read all of Mosiah in 2 days... She's such an amazing example!
Other than that, this week has been more of the same old, same old. A few exchanges with some of the other sister missionaries. Oh! We built a blanket fort for district meeting. It was about building our testimonies and FORTifying ourselves. Hah. We also did 10 hours of community service this week. And I feel like that doesn't sound like a lot... But it is :)
Okay. So now that thanksgiving is officially over, I can be annoying about Christmas and it's a little more socially acceptable :) So in the spirit of Christmas... Go to Christmas.mormon.org. Don't watch the top video, it's kind of trash. But scroll down to the animated one. Watch it. Laugh. Cry. And then share it!! It's amazing.
We all know the story of Jesus' birth from Luke 2 and if you don't I still love you. But in reading this story again, I found something different. When the Angels appear to the shepherds they say the
following which can be found in verses 10 and 11.
"And the angel said unto them, Fear not; for behold I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a savior, which is Christ the
The birth of the savior was meant for "all people." He was born "unto [us]." All of us. In the spirit of Christmas, head the council of these angels and share the gospel of Jesus Christ with those to whom
it already belongs. It's a lot easier to talk about Jesus in December than it is to talk about him in August. Do it. No excuses. I promise as you invite friends to come to all the activities and to church it
will make your Christmas infinitely more enjoyable and spiritual. Pinkie promise :)
Les quiero muchísimo. ¡Que sigan adelante protegidos y valientes en sus esfuerzos para compartir el evangelio durante esta temporada navideña! ¡Bueno suerte!
