I’ll be home for Christmas, but my home here in Argentina.
Sorry we weren’t able to write yesterday we had our mission Christmas party and got done really late but I’ll write about that in a bit if I have time if not I TELL you about it in two days when we talk :)
I just wanted you to know how excited I am to talk with you all. I am sooo looking forward to it. Theres not a lot of Christmas Spirit around here maybe because it’s so stinking hot! But it doesn’t even matter I’m just happy and content to be a missionary here for this Christmas. Talked to one of the member families and we are going to skype at their house after they talk to their missionary. Probably around 1 or 2 I’ll try and give you a heads up.. Well by that I mean Diego will give you a heads up to Eric on what’s app :)
I am so excited write down a list of things you want to ask or talk about :D
I was reading the ensign on the bus and found this talk. (sorry this thinking in Spanish witting in English is tough, (mom could you help me out and find it on line and copy it in here for me its called something like…la realidads de la navidad in the december ensign by Stevenson?
"aveces tenemos frente a nosotros las cosas mas valiosas y sagradas, a plena de vista, pero no podremos o no deseamos verlas.. " les prometo que si despejamos un poco nuestra vida, y si con sinceridad y humildad buscamos al cristo puro y tierno de todo corazón, lo veremos y lo encontramos.. en esta navidad y durante todo el ano
but it says, we have all we need,, answers to problem and preguntas we are looking for, the peace we need so often, the arms of our heavenly father, right in front of us. but often we find ourselves on the continue ue search because we either dont except, don’t know how, or sincerely don’t desire to find.
Sorry im all over the place here but I hope that we all can open up our hearts and minds so we can see our Saviors love for us. Pray for the answers we are searching for and ask for something special this Christmas.. your own little Christmas miracle. I hope we all can find something special to give to him also. I loved the talk so much because it tells us all he wants from us is that we smile a little more.. talk to a friend we haven’t in a while, forgive someone who has done us wrong, be a little more grateful , think about others, and show our love.
If you haven’t seen the little video "he is the gift" go and watch it. YouTube it.
I hope that you all can have a very special Christmas this year.
All I want for Christmas is YOU! Ill be home for Christmas.. but only in my dreams..( and your heart :) ) I am still also dreaming of a white Christmas... but we´ll see how that´ll go down :) I cant think of any more Christmas songs so sorry that’s all you get.
LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE YOU! I cant even wait to talk to you!!!!!!!
Love your bailey
The Reality Of Christmas By Bishop Gary Stevenson
"“Sometimes the most precious and sacred things are right in front of us, in plain sight, but we cannot or will not see them. …
“I promise that if we unclutter our lives a little bit and in sincerity and humility seek the pure and gentle Christ with our hearts, we will see Him, we will find Him—on Christmas and throughout the year.”
President Dieter F. Uchtdorf, Second Counselor in the First Presidency, “How to See the Christ in Christmas,”
