So many good things are happening right now, it's like the Lord is blessing us or something.
I'll come at ya with the biggest highlight of the week. CINDY CAME TO CHURCH! Do you realize how big of a deal this is? She can't drive so we got a ride for her and her scooter. When we were walking into the church building she clapped her hands and sang "I'm at church!!" Wow, how often do we get that excited about going to church? She was just BEAMING the whole time and people flocked to meet her and help her feel welcome. She told literally everyone she talked to that this is what she has been searching for for 58 years. As if life couldn't get better, who came walking in but the WILDINGS? The mission president, his wife, and son came to church with us. Dreams fulfilled. (They were up here to attend a baptism in Everson yesterday and thought they'd pop in). After church, Cindy said that she loved everything about it, even down to where she sat. She told us that would be her permanent spot. She is planning on coming again next week! Yahoo!
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas up here in Lynden. The town is lighting up and on Saturday we decorated a tree for the Pioneer Museum! Pictures included obviously.
Oh yeah, and Thanksgiving was great. Sports and games with the zone, then dinner with three different families. Our fridge is bursting. Happy holidays friends.
Remember #LightTheWorld from last year? The Christmas service initiative? As I'm sure you know..it's happening again! I'm totally stoked out of my mind about it. To quote mormon.org..."No season of the year shines as bright as Christmas -- and the brightest light is Jesus Christ, the Light of the World. Once again we celebrate His birth by making Christmastime a season of service. Join us this year as we learn His teaching and follow His example to #LightTheWorld." Mormon.org has a "25 Ways, 25 Days" calendar of short videos and service ideas. If you have not seen the main video, STOP WHAT YOU ARE DOING RIGHT NOW AND WATCH IT. Just go to mormon.org. Please do this.
"Jesus Christ is the light of the world and if we follow Him we will not walk in darkness, rather we will have the light of life."
"As we follow the example of the Savior and live as He lived and as He taught, that light will burn within us and will light the way for others." -President Monson
Transfers are next week and we have no clue what is about to go down. We want to be Christmas comps but I guess we will see what happens. STAY TUNED.
