December 21, 2015- Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas, everyone! Merry happy holiday with family and fun! :D Whether it be really cold or quite warm, enjoy the wonderful day on which we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ!
This week we had a sister's preparation day in Great Bridge, it was really fun. :) We did a white elephant gift exchange and drank hot chocolate. It was rainy and wet, but like really warm outside too. So weird.
On Tuesday we ventured out to Winsdor, in the depths of our area! We planned all these things the night before, and then our one appointment out there cancelled. Jennifer was like the only reason we were going to go out there. We're really tight on our miles this month (we have only so many to use), but we acted in faith and went with what we had planned. We spent many fruitless hours out there, and finally, right before we had to leave, we met Wendy! We shared the Restoration with her and her two super cute daughters and we're going back on Wednesday. :)
Jeanette and her family are doing well! Bishop came out with us to a lesson and we talked about prayer, the Holy Ghost, and the scriptures.
Ethan got baptized this weekend! :D Hoorah! He is so adorable. He was so happy. It was so powerful to hear his family share the talks and it was wonderful being there. I love Ethan and his family very much.
Thursday was kind of a rough day. Almost nothing we planned ended up happening. :( But you know what! Heavenly Father takes days like that and makes the best of them. :)
Friday was our mission Christmas conference. :) It was so much fun! So a super tender mercy; it was held at my first area's ward building. I not only got to see Sister Z from my first area, and talk with her, but I also got to see Sister H from Kinston! She came all the way up from NC to cater for the conference. Wow! :D I am so happy I got to see them both! They are amazing people. :D What a blessing!
Also on Saturday, we met with Kris and Shaniqua again. We also met Lenora, Kris' aunt. Wow! They are wonderful. We talked about what the Holy Ghost feels like, and at the end we taught prayer and invited each of them to take a turn and pray. It was amazing!
We went caroling with the Thomas' and met some of their neighbors. My singing voice still isn't back but I'm working on it.
So Saturday it was 8:15 and we didn't know what to do. It was dark so it's hard to visit people when you don't have an appointment. We didn't want to go in early so we decided to go visit a family in the ward who we don't know very well.
The wife let us right in and we had an enjoyable experience getting to know her! They are wonderful people. :) I am so grateful we did our best to be diligent!
On Sunday, Kristin and Wesley came to church! It's so exciting when our friends come, because we know how powerful of an experience church is. :) We had a wonderful Christmas music program with talent from our ward. It was so great! After church we helped Kristin make Spritz cookies, which are traditional Swedish cookies. Kristin and Sister Lundquist's families make the cookies every year, because they have Swedish ancestors. How cool is that!
Well I love ya'll! I know that this church is true. I know that Jesus Christ was born, and that He lived so that we can live again. :) I love Him!
Have a very Merry Christmas!
