This week went by sooo fast! Which is really good because it means that you are working hard and being obedient!
We had a huge miracle on Thursday! We had been challenged by our Zone Leaders to invite two people to be baptized by the end of the day. We had one family in mind that we knew that they were ready to accept an invitation to be baptized and that it would help them progress. But we had the hardest time finding them at home. We finally caught them at home at 8:15 pm. We taught them the first half of the Restoration and asked them a lot of inspired questions. It was awesome! The spirit was so strong and they expected a baptismal date for Nochebuena! We are so excited for them!! Jose y Ernestina and their two kids also came to an activity that the Wichita Stake was having this weekend. It was an exhibition of different nativities from all over the world. It was actually a lot of fun, I was surprised to be honest with you. They loved it and we showed them around the church and they really had a great time. I also got to see the Ellsworth family and a few other families from Newton there at the activity!! The Lord's Tender Mercies are the BEST!!!!!!!!!!
Our Saturday was crazy! The Stake activity lasted from Friday night until Saturday night and they had missionaries ushering and helping out the whole time! Hna Wilks and I went over to the activity that morning to help the branch with a Christmas musical thing that they were doing for the activity. Side note; I think I've played the piano more in the last 10 months on my mission than in the last two years before my mission! It went over pretty well considering how tone deaf our little branch is. :) You gotta love them though! After that we went and got lunch then it was back to the Nativity thing to help usher. Then right after that we went over to the City Building to help with and Christmas activity that they were having over there. Phew! It was a crazy day full of service!
Sunday we went Caroling with one of the members and her boyfriend to a bunch of their non-member family and friends. It was a lot of fun and we got to meet a lot of different people that way. The night ended by watching the Christmas Devotional, in Spanish. Man did that first lady talk fast I understood like nothing! The other two were a little bit slower so I got what they were saying. Just goes to show me that I still have a lot of work to do when it comes to my Spanish.
I love you all so much and I hope that you are having a wonderful Christmas time! Remember that He (Jesucristo) is the gift and the reason for the season!
Con Mucho Amor,
