I love it so much! I am extremely grateful to have another Christmas in the mission field (although my nephews think it's a rip off. haha)
|Well, hello Santa!|
Lots of good things going on.
We've been doing service at the library the last few weeks helping them to prepare for a Christmas party. This past week we were blessed to cut holes in the back of milk jugs........GROSS! They were all donated for a craft they'll be doing but some people just didn't rinse them out very well. Sister Jones and I only gagged a few times...
Ashely passed her interview so she will for sure be getting baptized on Saturday at 11:00. OH HAPPY DAY! Plattsmouth ward has not seen a convert baptism in at least a year and a half so everyone is pretty excited.

Thanksgiving was excellent. We had supper at the Sticht's house. It was wild but good. In the morning we had district meeting and then we ate a lot of food...you know how that goes. We visited Jiana Goto and Sister Meisinger and naturally she gave us pie...Sister Jones almost cried!
Hey, have y'all checked out christmas.mormon.org yet? Do it. Also, #sharethegift and if you get the Ensign give out those 9 pass-along cards!
On Friday we were on exchanges and it was down to the last hour, like it always is, and Sister Hirro and I tried a few potential investigators. We were led by the Spirit from house to house and nothing was happening. Finally we tried a member family who had recently moved in but they were not there, but their neighbors were outside in their garage (it was like 50 degrees). We went over to give them a pass-along card (He is the Gift) and it turns out they've met with missionaries before. We asked if they needed some help decorating (that's what they were doing) and they said yes. Nobody ever accepts help. They told us to come back anytime.
The same thing happened with Sister Jones and I the next day. We were led to an investigators house but stopped on Main Street cause it was Christmas on main! DUh! How come nobody told us?! We passed out 30 cards that night and got some nice photos.

I love you all. Keep climbing those mountains.
Dad, make sure Hailey and Lily see my Anna and Elsa photo
