Hey Merry Christmas!
I am SO grateful that I was able to be a missionary this Christmas. It was so special and I felt so much love for the people around me and my Savior. We spent time with some of the YSA members who arent near families on Christmas Eve and it was way fun- I LOVE these people! One of the guys that came that night also went to church the next day- and it was his first time going in 3 years!
It's 4 degrees here right now. I have learned some cool new winter survival tips lately like hand warmers, putting bags over your tights and under your socks and how to use a snow mower ( I think thats what its called). So I am prepared for all weather now.
This week was AMAZING. All the family wards are struggling over winter break to set up appointments, but it is perfect time for the YSA because they are all on break! So yes miracles out the wazoo, it's the best. We fasted last week for finding and we have been seeing so many miracles from it- we found 2 new investigators this week! One is a former investigator named Alisa who is so cute! We taught her the first lesson and committed her to be baptized and the next lesson she came back with a baptismal date that prayed and picked herself!! She is super prepared and feels so much joy as she reads the Book of Mormon- so cool!!
So I really love being a missionary... I am super sad that it is coming to an end but I will continue to serve my Savior and to be a member missionary and I expect all of you to hold me to it. :)
Have a wonderful week!
