Man, this week has been one of the greatest. This whole month has been absolutely amazing to reflect on and see all of the little Christmas miracles. Listed below are just a couple:
-Christmas Eve we didn't have a whole lot of plans. We were driving to see a less active family, but on our way we saw Sister Rodney, an older investigator, out shoveling her driveway from the five or so inches of snow we got. We turned around and got out to help her. She was so grateful. We had come at the perfect time.
-We have been praying with all our might to find new families to teach. Two weeks ago our prayer was answered. We got three new investigators, two of them being a family. The other we have a baptismal date set for January 9th. God hears and answers our prayers!!
-We were also praying to know who to see for referrals. The day we were discussing that we went to a new member that had just moved across town and into our ward. That night we got two new referrals of people we could go visit.
-The Spirit of Christ is real. We have seen it so many times during this season. It makes us all want to be better. It drives us to do good and give. It brings true joy and peace into our lives because Christ is the author of that peace. Because of His birth, we can have a portion of His peace. "All things which are good cometh of Christ." (Moroni 7:22-26).
I love being a missionary at Christmas time. There is no other place I would rather spend it at this time. Remember Him as you reflect on your year and plan to center your lives more fully on Him this coming year. That is when we will receive the most joy.
I love you all!! and I love our Savior!
