Merry Christmas!! I'll be seeing you very soon. We will be with the Chandlers and the Merkleys on Christmas and maybe even a couple more. But Chandlers are doing breakfast and the Merkleys are doing dinner. We will Skype at the Merkleys. It'll be around 1 o'clock for you and 2 here. I just asked her to email or contact you and set stuff up. We will be skyping for 40 minutes to ya'll. Very happy that'll happen!
We had a good 'ol week!! We worked our hardest this week. We worked more than ever in this area. We taught a less active sister whose husband is a non member and she came to our ward Christmas party the next day!! We teach her because the husband isn't too interested and we decided she can be strengthened and that will help him be more interested. We also found a new investigator named Tequisha who was a referral from a way old but sweet lady in our ward. They're neighbors. We haven't quite taught a full lesson yet but we talked on the porch one time and then we talked a few times on the phone with her. She is ready to learn more and she's very polite. She just has been crazy busy because of work to help the kids. Marvin isn't doing too hot. Haven't heard anything from him since last time I emailed ya. So right now we just have Tequisha and also another part member family named the Paradas that are doing okay. Haven't heard from the Tylers. The baptism is probably coming soon though
We also had our ward Christmas program yesterday in which we sang with the ward choir. That was bomb!! We sounded pretty good for only 4 practices. We sang 'Still Still' and 'On a Still and Starry Night'.
Our Mission Christmas Conference will be tomorrow!! Super stoked. I'll also be performing the hymn There is a Green Hill Far Away. I'll try and get a video to ya. What we do there is... well, we start with talks, trainings, choir performances. Then we have movie time, then lunch/dinner and then the talent show and then the 2015 slideshow and then gift exchange. .
How did you like Star Wars? Ive heard some about it. I heard that people around here couldn't even get tickets because they were sold out weeks in advance haha. how bad was it there? seems like it wasn't too bad because Glen went a bunch and you guys already saw it as well. I would love to see it 3 times right when I get home.
