Fun Christmas activities, Costco pizza, and the Plan of Salvation brings joy!

Howdy again.

So it was fun to talk to you guys! That day after we Skyped, we went and had a District party, (with party being defined by missionaries). So it was a joy. We all brought a bunch of yummy snacks, we had white elephant and secret Santa gift exchanges.... we played some funny games, AND we watch 17 miracles. Haha – every time I see that movie I feel like a loser for every complaining. What diligent souls they were. It is such a testimony to me that the church is true seeing people like that who represented our church and died for such a cause. 

It was a fun party and we are going to have another one on Thursday. hahaha. Our p-day moved to Thursday because of Christmas and New Years Day.... but we still can write today. So yeah. But it’ll be fun. I think we will celebrate my b-day on Thursday by going out to eat! Woohoo. I can’t believe I actually made it to 21 years of age. I am an old fart. Tooting away at life. It goes by fast.

We had lots of success with the investigator pool this week. We had 4 investigators at church! R. went and so she keeps progressing towards her baptism on January 17th! S., the little girl that thinks the Holy Ghost is an animal went! She actually changed a lot this week and we can see a lot of progress in her and in her mother. We taught them the plan of salvation and they loved it. S. LOVED church. She said that being with a bunch of young men and women her age made her feel great. She learned about the second coming of Christ and dating! lol. Haha. Soooo she wants to keep going to church. I think we can finally put a baptismal date with her....

UMMM. We ate Costco pizza this week.YUP. Costco exists in my area... who would’ve thunk?... Haha. That was fun. 

Our microwave stopped working. That wasn’t fun.

We keep finding new people. But man is it hard to find them. Seriously, the people’s schedules here are out of control. It makes having investigators really a challenge. We apparently have super good investigators that were going to get baptized but they just disappeared. One went to the cena navidena.... and then she disappeared for a whole week? No one knew where she is. And the other one is wealthy and has lots of work and when he isn’t working he goes on expensive vacations.... So it’s like. You gotta get your priorities straight.

Well, I just hope to help R. get to baptism. Not for vain desires of having a baptism my last week, more because I want to be doing missionary work until I am done.... and baptizing people is missionary work! wooohooo. Just pray for her. Well, I hope to keep finding more chosen souls. 

Oh fun question. What is the difference between a soul and a spirit?  A catholic brought it to my attention. And I was like NOTHING. But then I studied it and there also is a difference. soo ya. Let’s see who wins the big award....

Oh fun story. We taught a woman the plan of salvation. Her son, when he was 4 years old, fell off of a roof and was left mentally and physically handicapped. He was in that state until he turned 16. And then he died. This family was in grand need to hear the message of the plan of salvation. When we taught the principle of the resurrection, her tears could not be contained. It was a beautiful thing to teach and testify of this glorious plan that is all made possible through the Son of Man. She accepted baptismal date for February. Her son doesn’t believe in God, but I know he felt something that night. I am sure this Gospel will open their eyes to see THE bigger picture.

Love you all! Have a wonderful New Years. Wish me a happy birthday. lol
