Merry Christmas. Merry Christmas.
Oh and if you didn't know...Merry Christmas! If you haven't already you need to go check Mormon.org and see the #LightTheWorld. Its super awesome and focuses on doing service for others. So this letter might possibly be pretty short for this week, but we'll see what happens cause I might end up writing a lot. Now that you're on the edge on your seat probably eagerly anticipating what you're gonna read next let's begin.
Monday- We had a fun Pday and got the whole zone together and made crepes and did a white elephant gift exchange. Later that night we had a ysa Christmas branch party and also did another white elephants so the day was pretty nice haha.
So Tuesday morning while we were getting ready I made/baked a cookie cake thing I got from home. How did I do this? I have no idea haha When I say miracles still happen I mean it.
We went and took it though to an investigator though and hopefully it was good. We then went and visited a guy that has been less active for a while and we were talking with him and I think we asked him to share his favorite scripture but he did and it was in 2 Nephi 33 and as he shared it you could feel the atmosphere change in the room and he started crying as he was reading. It was really humbling to see this guy who had been hurting for a while finally start to heal. Its like the gospel is true or something?!? Sike! It is true! We also ended up teaching our new converts' mom who speaks Spanish and just a little English so we taught very simply and with some translating from him taught her the plan of salvation and at the end she said "I like the Plan of Salvation" and I was just like "me too." Later on our convert told us that his mom had told him that she was questioning that very day just life in general and what happens after and was kinda worried but that after she met with us she felt good and at peace. So cool.( So it turns out that was Tuesday and Wednesday haha)
Thursday we went to a district meeting out in Bowmanville and we learned how to effectively study.
Friday we also had another district meeting in Oshawa.
On Saturday we had a temple trip with the YSA ward planned but it got canceled so we went and shoveled peoples driveways and it was so cool cause people were so humbled and loving when we did. We then went and volunteered at a soup kitchen and were serving so that was really awesome and it made me really realize the importance of manners and gratitude cause I loved the people who displayed those things. We also got to teach an investigator who at first seemed like he might not want to accept the book of Mormon before he even read it but by the end changed his mind and he is gonna read it and we will see him on Tuesday!
Miracles by the Plenty!
Have a Merry Christmas!
