Week 20 - F-e-l-i-z N-a-v-i-d-a-d!!!!!

Hello Hello!

Happy Christmas Season everyone!!!!! 

This week has been wonderfully crazy!

We found a cute family that we are so so excited to teach! We got to teach Sheri and her boyfriend and that is a HUGE miracle because we have been trying to get in with them forever!!!!! (and we didn't even know her boyfriend was interested!) So great! We also picked up some other new investigators we are way excited about!!

Just messing around!.....

Wednesday Sister Morrison was really sick.....So I got to play nurse! But I was praying in my personal study that morning what I could do to help her and I opened up to this scripture and started laughing out loud because I think it is so funny! Alma 17:7....."Nevertheless they departed out of the land of Zarahemla, and took their swords, and their spears, and their bows, and their arrows, and their slings; and this they did that they might provide food for themselves while in the wilderness."

And then I found James 5:14...."Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord".........hahahah!!!Soooo we called the Elders because the scriptures told us to, and she got a blessing and the next day she felt well enough to go out! And miracles followed!........

All those new investigators!! Wahoo! I cannot wait to see where they go and I'm sure that at least some of them will progress and those we are already teaching will keep progressing!

Also we had our Mission Christmas Conference! Which was so fun!!!! We had 4 other sisters stay over the night before so that was crazy! But wonderful! At the conference President and Sister Blair spoke and Elder and Sister Hawks spoke. We had a sing along, had a beautiful dinner, I got to see my MTC companion Sister West and it was so fun and festive!!! 

Last night we had a fun YSA activity with the Elder and Sister Walker! (President Hinkley's daughter and son-in-law) They are so so cool I am so grateful to be able to serve so close with them! :)

Our theme this month is BELIEVE. I think that is very fitting. We have talked a lot about "Be not afraid, only believe". And we have been applying it to our high goals in missionary work and our hopes and desires for the people we love so dearly to progress! But it also is just as applicable for everyone, not just in missionary life. A lot of times we have a hard time believing, but with Christ all is possible. 

Do you believe in Christmas? Do you Believe in Christ? I DO! And I know that the wonderful magic feeling of Christmas is just a glimpse of the joy that we can have through Him. :)

It is the most wonderful time of the year!  (Also it snowed so we are way pumped about that!)

And about my e-mail subject: I know I am not a Spanish-speaking Sister missionary - but our current favorite Christmas song just happens to be in Spanish!
