WEEK 57: The Water is in the Firmament 💦

We had a super great week! A little busy because of Christmas lights but still many miracles! It was a week where we spent a lot of time with Galina and her family! This week we went to Christmas lights with her and she brought her brothers family with her! It was all their first time going so it was really cool to walk around with them and show them everything. We also had quite the adventure before going with her. So Galina now lives in the Gilbert Mission, but got permission to keep coming to the branch for a few months, since she just got baptized. So we knew we were going to the lights with her on Thursday and we thought it would be the perfect opportunity for her to meet the missionaries in her mission. So we went through a lot to figure out and contact the Gilbert missionaries and we finally did it. But it was getting close to time and they texted us saying that they couldn't find a ride from a member to go outside of their mission. So we texted back jokingly that we could meet at the border, and they said that would actually work! So we called our mission president really quick to see if we could pick them up out side the mission and he said yes! It was kind of crazy figuring out where to meet up but we finally found them. And the Gilbert mission is sooooo nice, it's seriously like a different land when you cross the border. But we drove them to the lights and we met Galina there and it was sooooo much fun! Seriously I am so grateful to have the lights to go to, especially on temple grounds!

So then the second Galina adventure. She called us when we were working at Christmas lights the other night and told us she was going to go do baptisms for the dead at the temple the next day! So she asked us a few questions and stuff. Then later we realized we probably should go with her and she was very happy that we asked because she was nervous about going. And also it was good because the group that was going was all the youth and the recent converts, and she was the only female there. So we accompanied her and it was so cool! Especially since we don't really do baptisms very often, well never. But she liked it a lot and had a lot of questions, but I'm sure they will be able to answered soon. The baptismal font in the Mesa temple is soooooooooooooo cool! Literally everything about the Mesa temple is amazing. I love my mission!

To explain the title, were supposed to talk to everyone as missionaries so the other day we went to go talk to this man who has building a wall outside and he was a little crazy with some of his beliefs and believes that the sky is blue because it's water and he told us that NASA is a liar. So that was interesting...

I hope everyone is participating in the #LIGHTtheWORLD 25 days of service! I have been doing it the best I can and it has been so much fun seeing others be a part of it as well. I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas season and continue lighting the world through serving as Jesus Christ did!

Here's one...

But here's a nice one :)
In the VC there is a room full of nativities from all around the world. So here are a few pictures.
