Hello family and friends! I hope you are doing well!

This week we got to have another lesson with Andre! He is doing so good and it makes my heart to happy. It is so wonderful to see how Christ already has and is continuing to change him. We taught the Word of Wisdom, and not gonna lie I
was a bit nervous. After we explained the details of the commandment, he said that he didnt have a problem with most of the substances but said that he was brewing some coffee as we were talking. He then, without questioning, said that he will just need to
throw it out. He immediately knew this was a commandment from God and was willing to start following it- immediately. The Spirit was strong and I felt how real the gospel is.

This week we also had the opportunity to hear from President Ballard. We were all seated for our meeting and our mission president told us that we needed to stand because we would have a special guest joining us. And in walked cute little
President Ballard. He bore a sweet testimony of the Savior.

Other than that, we have been super busy with echanges and office work. We have been so blessed to find time to teach, proselyte, and take some sweet virtual tours! Being a missionary is literally the best!

This week was such a huge testament to me of how God answers prayers. I have had times in my life and on my mission where it felt like God was not listening to me. I wondered if I really knew that "I am a Child of God" and that "he hears
every child's prayer". However, this week I had a warm confirmation that God does love each of His children and He does answer their prayers. Sometimes it isnt immediate or the way we want, but He knows our hearts and meets our needs.

Love you all and hope you have a wonderful Christmas! Christ lives and He loves each of you! He lived His life and died for YOU! And that all started with his humble birth. I hope you find ways to remember that this week!
