This week was wonderful! We had a Christmas party with the north part of the mission last week. We heard some wonderful speakers, ate some delicious food, and then had a Christmas talent show! Sister Gietz and I prepared a skit together with two of the Elders from the senior missionary couples. I rewrote the words to the song "Sisters" from White Christmas and we performed it! It was a hit and we had so much fun.
We are getting into the holiday spirit with the Christmas parties, lights, and it finally snowed again (it has been an unusually warm winter, my prayers were answered!). We have been sharing a new video that the Church made called He Is The Gift . It is a beautiful reminder of what Christmas is truly about- the gift of our Savior! He has given us hope in our lives and makes everything possible!
We have been blessed with so many miracles this week. We found so many new people to teach, we are truly seeing miracles. We had a girl call us the other night and said she wants to be baptized! We met with her last night and she is so prepared! The Lord has guided her to this point and has helped her to know that this is the true church of Jesus Christ. She prayed to know how she could be happy with all that she is dealing with in her life, and she opened the scriptures and the first word she saw was "baptism"! The she said wait it can't be that easy! Then she opened again to 2 Nephi 32 and it read:
"And now, behold, my beloved brethren, I suppose that ye ponder somewhat in your hearts concerning that which ye should do after y
e have entered in by the way. But, behold, why do ye ponder these things in your hearts?
Do ye not remember that I said unto you that after ye had received the Holy Ghost ye could speak with the tongue of angels? And now, how could ye speak with the tongue of angels save it were by the Holy Ghost?
Angels speak by the power of the Holy Ghost; wherefore, they speak the words of Christ. Wherefore, I said unto you, feast upon the words of Christ; for behold, the words of Christ will tell you all things what ye should do.
Wherefore, now after I have spoken these words, if ye cannot understand them it will be because ye ask not, neither do ye knock; wherefore, ye are not brought into the light, but must perish in the dark.
For behold, again I say unto you that if ye will enter in by the way, and receive the Holy Ghost, it will show unto you all things what ye should do."
She knew from these scriptures that she had already received her answer! We asked her when she would be ready to be baptized and she said "Yesterday!" Haha she decided on Christmas eve! What a gift to give and receive! We are so excited for her. She is so full of the spirit, we can see it in her eyes that she is ready!
I love this gospel! I am so lucky to witness this and many other miracles daily.
