The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

December 11, 2017

We had the baptism of Andria this week and it was fantastic.  Her best friend Marina sang and other members made cake and it all was just a fantastic baptism.  And it was awesome to see the excitement on Marina's face as her best friend got baptized.  They were both so excited and happy!

The rest of the week was a little slower because my comp got sick, but we still had a great week looking for the less active members that we had written in our area book and it turned out to be a great idea.  We found a few members that were still reading and praying everyday, but just didn't know how to come back so it was so awesome to find them and show them they can always come back.  And so they did and they were all there this Sunday.  This Sunday was also the primary sacrament meeting program which was great and always adorable.  

Our new skirts
Irma Nici and Irmao Rimundo gave us skirts this week and were so excited that we wore them on Sunday.  They're so cute. They're like our grandparents of this area it's awesome!! Oh and they gave us Biz (which is like a kit kat here) to help my comp get better haha cause chocolate fixes everything, well and ice cream hehe.

This week I just wanted to remember that this is the most wonderful time of the year and with so much going on we always need to stop and remember what this season is really all about.  Christ's birth because it's only through him we can return to our Heavenly Father.  I am so grateful for the gift of the atonement.  It's the best gift that we could ever receive.  Alma 7:10-13 is a great place to read and remember how great this gift is. 
Hope you all have a  marvelous week!!!  Love you all!!!
