Merry Christmas!! It was an exciting week between defending Arizona's honor and caroling! I hope you all had a great week too!
Monday- Nothing super exciting, probably one of the most lazy P-days I've had!
Tuesday- We taught a lesson to the Bishop's family and we asked them what the Book of Mormon meant to them. Their kids range from ages 5-12 and we got the best answers. The funniest of them all was from the 5 year old who said, "If there was no Book of Mormon in the WHOLE world then we'd be in the depths of despair!"
Wednesday- We did service at Barr Lake, as we always do on Wednesday. We had a new group of people because transfers. So all the fun get to know you questions. Well, I made some joke about having a little heat tolerance and one of the Elders was from Texas and he straight up claims, "Texas is hotter." Kind of an end of story sounding statement. Now, I have lived in Az my whole life and if there is one thing I feel like we have claim to is being one of the hottest states. So I had to flex our Az heat.
Me: "Texas is definitely more humid."
(He fell into my trap)
Elder: "How hot is it in Arizona?"
Me: *Cue evil smirk on my part*
Also Me: "It gets up to about 120 degrees"
*insert casual shrug*
Elder: "Oh, that's hot."
Oh later that day we got mail so we decorated for Christmas!!!
Thursday- It snowed! We had a couple lessons and the one with Sandy was fantastic!
Friday- Snowed more! Did we carol while it was snowing? Of course! (How we got permission to carol, I don't know but we aren't fighting it.) Brittany is finally home from the hospital so we casually pushed our mini army of Elders to her house to carol a d it was so sweet. She started crying and the spirit was just so strong❤
Saturday- A member gave us a list of people we should carol to so we had to drive some but we got to make a lot of people's nights! A lot of the kids were super cute and one of them gave us popcorn as a thank you!
Sunday- If you couldn't tell, caroling has been the highlight of my last couple of days. Well, after caroling on Friday, there was this house that I really wanted to go to. They have gone all out on the Christmas decorations and they had went crazy for halloween too. So I kind of wanted to go there. So we did and they were super nice! We got their phone number and gave them the Book of Mormon! Caroling Miracles!!
