I HATE CHRISTMAS...countdowns

Howdy Everyone!!! 
 I hope that all ya'll are having a grand ole' time counting down to Christmas because let me tell ya it is no fun for me like at all! That is my little rant for the day. 
Anyways, this week we were very blessed with many things... take a glance! 
Monday: We went to the tridge! I've been in Midland 9 months and I had never gone to the tridge and we finally went!!!! Yes!!! The tridge is a 3 way bridge by the way. It was a sweet victory!
Tuesday: We were out door knocking and we met this guy named Shawn and he had the biggest smile ever and he loved that we were talking about Jesus! He loves God a lot and he wants to follow him! He has a really great conversion story about how he came to Christ. He was just so excited and he went to give us handshakes and he was like aww just give me a hug! HaHA!!!! It was super funny cause he hugged me first and I looked over at Sister Lau and Sister Chisholm.... haha! It is seriously the funniest thing when you get randomly hugged and well we're just awkward about all of it. Luckily though he became a potential investigator and gave us a referral! 
Wednesday: Um.. we had a totally awesome lesson with Jason again!!!!!! Like what??? This man needs to be baptized because that is basically the only thing he has left to do! He was talking all about D&C and what he learned! We talked about the Word of Wisdom and he took it very well actually! Keep praying for him! 
Thursday: We got to help out with decorations as a service opportunity! I love helping with those things because it reminds me of home in a good way not a distracting sort of way! Also it is a super fun way to give service! Also we heard an awesome Michigan Christmas song like it talks about Christmas in Michigan and the wind blows at the end oh man it's great!  
Friday: We have been so blessed with really great weather while walking and with finding potential investigators! People have actually been open to talking with us more and it is wonderful! We love it! It is nice to carry on conversations and AND people aren't saying come back after the holidays! What the?? This Christmas season is nothing like last Christmas!!! 
Saturday: We basically had a whole day that consisted of finding and door knocking. It went well and we were able to talk to a lot of people. I think our door approaches are getting better as well! Also we get to share He is the Gift with everyone. Sadly some people still deny the Gift but many accept it! 
Sunday: We taught Relief Society!!! The greatest thing about it was the fact that we got the lesson the night before.... Luckily the spirit totally provides help when you keep praying and praying and asking for help! It went well and luckily we had a lot of comments that were given! #blessed! 
Spiritual Thought: Today in studies I came across a scripture which is great! It is Helaman 3:35 and it talks about how when we fast and pray we will wax stronger and stronger in humility and we will be able to have a firmer faith in Christ! I love how is prayer the helps us to remain humble which ultimately strengthen our faith in Jesus Christ. It also says that as we do this things we will be filled with joy and consolation which means to receive comfort. As we do these things I know that we will be able to come closer to our Savior Jesus Christ and be purified and sanctified which means we'll become consecrated to the Lord. In the name of Jesus Christ, amen. 
 Love Always,
