We were able to go to Christmas lights with Adela his week! She is such a golden investigator that the English Elders referred to us. She recently got a divorce with her husband and that's why she began to meet with the missionaries. When we went to Christmas lights she just kept saying like, I just love that! With everything. We even got to see a little bit of the concert. She did have to leave though because she has a cute little baby boy. Now we just need to meet with her more often!
On Christmas Eve we went caroling with our district to our investigators and members and it was really successful! We made a list of all the people we wanted to visit and they were all home so it was a good way to show them love and they all loved it! We also go to sing at Christmas Lights on Christmas Day! It's such a great way to share the spirit is through music, and I love performing so that's also a plus.
I just love Christmas so much! A paragraph I have just been dying to share with someone this week is the first paragraph of the living Christ. "As we commemorate the birth of Jesus Christ two millennia ago, we offer our testimony of the reality of His matchless life and the infinite virtue of His great atoning sacrifice. None other has had so profound an influence upon all who have lived and will yet live upon the earth." I just love this because I think it perfectly describes the reason we celebrate Christmas. The reason he was born was so that he could perform the atonement and allow for all of us to be resurrected and live with our Father in Heaven again. There is absolute no one that has lived a life as perfect as His, but he is so humble in the middle of all of it. I would like to invite you all to read the entire testimony of The Living Christ and find a way to apply it to your life, so you can have a stronger testimony if Him. I love you all! And I'm so grateful for the opportunity I had to talk with my family yesterday. It really helped me and motivated me even more to continue to share the gospel. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
I had to reset my iPad this week so I don't have all the pictures from the week. Don't worry I saved them, but here's what I do have! Matching pjs!
