FELIZ NAVIDAD!!!

Hola de nuevo soy yo

FELIZ NAVIDAD!!! Hope everyone had a good Christmas and thank you everyone who sent a christmas card or gift to me. I also really appreciated all the texts from you guys!!!! We had Zone P-day today and we got to do spikeball and volleyball! I used my foot most of the time….but it actually worked! It was super funny to see one of the elders use his head to hit the ball. Everyone was just hyping each other so much and it was super fun to laugh so hard. Me and Hermana Loosli saw a soccer ball and instantly started playing with it and juggling until it would almost hit someone by accident….not my fault..they were just in my way. After we got to eat Chick fil a with our gift cards!!!!! Then we got a box dye for our companion to dye her hair black !!!

Interesting Things That Happened:
○ Went to 3 Christmas dinners on Christmas Eve and definitely got fat and went into a food coma. Got to experience a Mexican, American, and Venezuela Christmas. Never felt like throwing up so bad …
○ Zone Christmas Party!
○ Gave out so many cookies and got into houses !! Cookies are magical and help us get into strangers' houses !!!
○ Burnt my hand while making cookies and used an ice bag to help….it was all worth it for some bomb sugar cookies. I always seem to burn myself while making something
○ Got to open presents with my companions in our pjs and fuzzy socks
○ Got a cool Santa hat that a random lady gave me and put on my head!
○ Sang in church on Christmas with my companions and the relief society!!
○ Did exchanges with the STL's and got to remember the Utah song with Hermana Ardema "There's no place like Utah"
○ Found a Slug on the Floor …. Killed it …. No shame for killing it.
○ Dyed my Companions hair black!!!! Call me Hermana Mondo

Spiritual thought:
I got to watch the Christ Child for the first time!!! Even though it was not in English I clearly knew what was going on .. I think. Anyways I maybe cried towards the end when they put on that sentimental music…but it was AMAZING! This whole month leads up to the birth of Christ which is literally the main reason why we celebrate it! He is what brings us joy and TRUE happiness. I've never felt more happy than just to focus this Christmas on him and not really care about receiving gifts or watching Christmas movies or other Christmas traditions….which I do miss …. but nothing compares to the thought of Jesus Christ and his birth. Jesus Christ loved us so much that he sacrificed himself for us to use his atonement so that we can live for eternity with our Heavenly Father. I really invite you all to just set goals with your family about finding ways to include Christ in your life. I promise you will receive true happiness in your life …en el nombre de Jesucristo amén

Scripture:
Ether 4: 12
And whatsoever thing persuadeth men to do good is of me; for good cometh of none save it be of me. I am the same that leadeth men to all good; he that will not believe my words will not believe me—that I am; and he that will not believe me will not believe the Father who sent me. For behold, I am the Father, I am the light, and the life, and the truth of the world.
