Week Before Christmas and All through Uruguay

Hello Family and Friends,

This week was awesome!! We were sooo busy doing visits to members, menos activos (less actives) and recent converts. We would talk with them about the spirit of Christmas because a lot of them didn't understand that Christ is the reason for the season. It's so fun being a missionary during Christmas for that reason. We get to light the world be simply sharing Him. His miracle and His hope. He was born to save, born to give us light and life. I know that he lives and he suffered for our sins, challenges and knows us deeply. I know that His way will succeed everytime. I love Him. I hope we can all remember Christ alittle more this season because he is our Savior and our light.
Much love & A Very Merry Christmas!!!

Highlights of the week:

1. The Christmas conference was amazing. The spirit of christmas was alive and well as we listened to President and Hermana Olsen speak and played white elephant game.
I gave a fanny pack full of candy. (see picture) and got a big bag of cookies and pan dulce (little cakes)!
The moto of the President Olsen is "Work Hard" "Have fun" "But do both when you can" I LOVE it and I hope to keep it in mind through out my mission.
Then tradition is ALL the new missionaries have to bear their testimonies!

2. We got to go and participate in a Pesebre Viviente, Living Nativity.
It was super fun to meet the other branch and the nativity was super cute. Hna Koford and I were singing angels!

3. We visited a recent convert on Sunday who was super sweet. She's 13 years old and loves soccor.
We shared Ether 12 with her and testified that Christ is the only way we can over come our weakness. The Spirit was so strong! I know that We can always change through Christ! We never have to stay in the same place, we can always change!

4. We got gifted a PIG HEAD. One of our other recent converts gave us a PIG HEAD! My companion & I were dying!!! So gross!!!!!

5. Uruguay's Crazy RAIN!!!
