Hey all! I apolagize that I did not write on christmas. I was not able to access my email because the computer that I was using was not working, so I am writing my email today!
This week has been so good! We have had so many miracles this week. One of our miracles was that we were able to start teaching a man named pascual! This is a miracle for us because we have been teaching his wife for more than a year and he has never shown interest and has never participated in our lessons. We are now teaching him and he has been reading the book of mormon, and praying with his family!! We are so excited to see the changes that he will make!
We have also been able to visit a lot more people and we are hoping to put some baptismal dates this week! Marco is one of our investigators and it has been interesting teaching him because he has so many questions but does not want to act and do the things that he needs to do to receive answers. But he has changed completely!!! He has stopped drinking and doing drugs and he has started to spend more time with his fammily! He is reading the Book of Mormon and he is praying to see if the Book of Mormon is true, and he is praying to feel the love that Heavenly Father has for him and he is really searching to recieve the answers to his questions!!
My Christmas was pretty interesting! We spent Christmas morning painting and cleaning the house, because the Land Lady said that if we don’t paint the house that we will need to find another place to live. So our arms are a little sore but the house looks really pretty and we will not need to find another house!! On Christmas Eve we went to a members house and had a Family Home Evening with them. It was so much fun because they were talking about how they have seen so many missionarys go inactive after their missions and they told us that they did not want us to go inactive. So they invited us to write on a sticky note what we will give to Christ this Christmas and to put it in a place were we will see it a lot. They told us that when we have trials or when we feel frustrated to read the sticky note and to remember what we said that we would give to Christ. personally on my sticky note I wrote that my gift to Christ this Christmas is my life and my will. Basically that I give my life to him and will do everything that he asks me to do! It was a really cool experience and gave us a chance to really think about what we will give to christ every year and what we will do to show our love for him!!
