Been an awesome week! We had our District Christmas party which was another blast! We also had our Christmas devotional in Santiago with Pres and Sis Rahlf! Gosh they are so cool! Sister Rahlf talked about the songs of Christmas and had awesome presentations of the songs! Including our mission president playing guitar and singing in German! Haha and then Pres. Rahlf talked about the gift of Jesus Christ. and specifically the magnitude of the Atonement! It really does span a lot more than we can even comprehend.... But the amazing thing is we have the opportunity to feel of the lifting of our burdens and the peace and comfort in all of life's craziest moments... and it truly is an "infinite atonement" but anyway!
This week we almost got killed by a snake!! Hahaha not really, but we did see a Philippine Cobra! That was fun.
We have our first baptismal service this Saturday! MERRY CHRISTMAS TO THEM! Nanay Hermosura as well as MaryRose! its going to be such a beautiful experience and its been so amazing to be able to see in their eyes.... the desire to follow Jesus Christ! And its obviously a difference! I dont think i've ever been able to see it this clearly though! WOW!
Anyways... Just want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas! I'm sure you've all heard, but its so important! Never forget the true meaning of Christmas! The birth, life, and teachings of Jesus Christ! I know He lives! He knows us and every challenge we could ever have! His Atonement is sufficient for all of us!!
MERRY CHRISTMAS FROM THE BEAUTIFUL PHILIPPINES!
