Hello Family! Well, it´s December, and you all know what that means! IT´S CHRISTMAS TIME! YES!!! I love this spirit. Even though there´s no snow where I´m at, you still have the Christmas Spirit here. And I have a really good feeling that December is going to be a really good month for us! We had a really good week this week! A lot of things fell into place this week, and it´s been really special to see the Lord´s hand in this area.
First off, with Wosvelí. He´s the guy we found whose wife is the sister of the Branch President in Momos, my first area. Well, he´s incredible. I guess he just wasn´t ready when other missionaries passed by, but everything we´ve given him, he´s accepted with no problem. We talked about his baptism, and he´s set for the 14th! He´s so ready.
Another cool thing about Wosvelí. He came to church yesterday with his whole family, and loved it. The best part though was during Elder´s Quorum. At the end of the lesson, we were planning for the Nativity Scene that the ward is going to do, and the Elder´s Quorum is in charge of the scenery, and some food. Well, they were giving out assignments, and when they asked for light, Wosvelí just straight up says, "I´ll help out with that." Man, he´s already participating in the Ward! How pilas is he? What a guy.
We also had a little mini miracle this week. When I first got here, we were working a lot with a menos activo family, and we finally got them to come back to church. Well, until this week we didn´t realize that their nine year old daughter hasn´t been baptized yet. They were inactive when she turned eight, and when they started to come to church again, they never got around to baptize them. Well, we talked to them about it, and they agreed to having her be baptized! This Saturday, the 7th of December, we are going to baptize her. It feels really good too, because it´s part of a family that I helped reactivate!
We´ve also been blessed to be teaching a lot of families recently. It´s a lot better teaching families as opposed to just single investigators. Everything is better off, support, stats, and all that fun stuff. We are just really trying to have them come to church, and then the real fun starts!
Thursday was Thanksgiving, and I can tell you now, this year´s dinner was a lot better than last year´s! (I honestly forgot it was Thanksgiving last year, so I just ate a bag of popcorn...) We bought a bunch of food, gave it to a member to cook it for us. So we had an awesome dinner with a HUGE turkey leg, mashed potatoes, and broccoli. (Missed the stuffing though..) It´s was really good, and a bunch of food!
It´s been a really good week, and I hope that this week is the same! Pray for all the missionaries out in the field, they are working their butts off! Love you all! Until next time!
