Merry Christmas! This week was packed with Love and of coarse the spirit! Quick update on my week since i only have 10 minutes to type this. Yesterday we had our Mission Christmas Conference. It was so much fun! We watched The Other Side of Heaven and all the Poly's did the Haka! It was so funny! We also had our ward Christmas Party and we performed twice! Our investigators performed in it as well! I will have to send videos of our performances! Emma made so much progress this week. She has been texting us throughout the week and she's been saying no to alcohol left and right. We are so proud of her. Also she has been reading her Book of Mormon and coming to church every week! We are setting an appointment with her and the Stake President this week!
How do we have the Christmas Spirit? We recognize that God loves us so much that he gave us his son as a gift. How do we show him that we appreciate this gift? We love him back. God does not need us to love him, but oh how we should love him back. Imagine the atonement. Jesus walking, not knowing fully what was about to happen. But God is all-knowing. He knew what was going to happen. He could have called off the whole plan, but he didn't. Instead i believe that he looked at all of us. Looked into our faces during that time that our savior bled from every poor. He looked at us and he gave us his son because he loved us.
During this christmas time. Don't look to your left or to your right. Look up!
