Can you believe it is almost Christmas?!? I guess I can't believe it because it is still 70 degrees and there is no snow on the ground. It is kind of sad actually but I know that this Christmas will be a good one.
This week was great! I was able to go to the temple with my companion on Friday, and then to also go caroling with my zone. Transfer calls were last night and Hermana Merrell and I are staying together! WOOHOO!! We are excited because we love the ward and our investigators are great. The area is really progressing and it is just a fun environment to serve in! The weird thought is that I will most likely end my mission here in Rowlett. CRAZY!
We continue to knock and find people it is amazing and such a testimony builder. Even if we don't get a return appointment with them, it just makes me happy to have the opportunity to testify to everyone about the restored gospel. The "He is the Gift," is working out great. A lot of people have been sharing it with their friends and less active members of the ward. As missionaries in the ward, we decided to do an activity with each of the members so that they can really experience and accept the gift of Jesus Christ this Christmas season. It has been a lot of fun to get close to these members and to feel of their love and to help them have their own missionary experiences!
Tomorrow we are having a mission wide Christmas party/ goodbye party for the missionaries that are leaving! It is going to be a good break from the normal missionary days. We continue to go caroling with our zone and at every door we always try to sing new songs but "We wish you a Merry Christmas" is the only song that ever comes out! Oh well! I love you all so much and good luck with those that have finals this week!
COME WHAT MAY AND LOVE IT
