Not a whole lot happened this week. Just continuing to “Share The Gift” with those we come in contact with. Our appointment with the Reader’s and with the Chadwick’s had to cancel, so that was a disappointment (one of them, we were going to the Mesa Temple lights too and we still haven’t gone yet, so it’s looking like it’s not going to happen).
On December 18th, the whole mission went to the Temple to do a session, so that was really cool. Then December 19th, the mission had a big Christmas party where we had a dinner there, played some activities, and we did the balloon thing like we did last year. We had over 400 balloons with little lights at the end, each of which represent people that were baptized or people that have been touched by the Gospel this year and then we let all the balloons go and start singing Silent Night. So that was fun.
December 20th, we finally had a lesson with Kim and shared “He Is The Gift.” We also invited her to have her and her family come to the Seville Park Ward’s Night in Bethlehem activity happening that night and to church that Sunday, and they went to both. (I was really surprised to see them at church, but her and her husband booked it right after sacrament meeting was done).
Then Sunday was another seven hours of church. But it was good. It was the Christmas program which means that most of it was Christmas songs and reading the Christmas story, but it was really good. We had five investigators attend church that Sunday, so that’s great.
Gotta say it’s really weird that Christmas is this Thursday. It doesn’t feel like it should be this soon. Nonetheless, I hope you all have a Merry Christmas!
