I hope it’s been a good one filled with family and friends! But also with the love of Christ! We had a wonderful Christmas devotional in my stake (a group of about 5 congregations in one area), and there we listened to a beautiful choir. For the first time, I thought to put myself in the story. I imagined how Mary felt as she traveled days on the donkey or how Joseph felt when he realized there wasn’t anywhere to stay. But how much joy they must have experienced together when it all worked out, and they held their son and Savior in their arms. This is a video of the Nativity. My invitation for you is to watch it and imagine what it would be like to live it!
I know that Christ lived, that he died but rose the third day. I know that more then I know anything else.
So, do you remember Cristopher that I talked about the last week. Their mother just left them with their Grandmother. They are torn apart and prayers would be amazing : ) Thank you!
This week we started teaching Francisco! He is a friend of Groerge (a less active member who is preparing to baptize his son). So we had the grand idea of teaching them together!!! It was just wonderful! And Francisco is so ready to change his life. He told us about how he hasn’t drank in almost 2 weeks, and he is choosing to avoid places where he know there will be drinking : ) But best of all, he accepted a baptismal date for next month!!!!!!!!! When we left, Greorge walked with us outside where we all gave lots of high 5’s for the prayers that had just been answered : )
