Wahooooo its almost Christmas! I never thought i would see Christmas, but here it is! I love this time of year! I love being a missionary! I love my wonderful family and friends there back home! And i love my Georgia Family here!!! :) This week has been fantastic! Me and Hermana Brinhurst enjoyed our 2 days of being in not a trio, but actually it was rather awkward. When she was in the shower or in the bathroom and i was all alone i felt so weird because there wasn't anyone there with me. ahh it felt weird and like something was missing haha. We got a new companion her name is Hermana Webb and she has been out for 9 ish months i think. She is white. She awesome and we are glad to have her with us in the Chamblee area!
Anyway so then yesterday during gospel principles class and it was the Elders turn to teach so Elders Cruz asked if there were any volunteers but no one raised their hand so then he just called on one of the members and then all of the sudden our investigator stood up, and said "voy a ententar" "im going to try" he is the shyest guy ever!! HE SAID THE PRAYER!!! in front of the whole entire class!!!! what a cool experience!! It is cool to see that my companion was so in tune and was able to promise that blessing and we got to see it fulfilled the very next day! The spirit is cool!!
Now i just want to talk for just a second on how much i love my Georgia family! I really do. I the people here, i love our branch i love our investigators i love the random people we meet in Walmart parking lots, i love them all. They make being away from my eternal family easier. I love it here. I love being a missionary. I love Jesus Christ. And i know that God and Jesus Christ love me and love each and every one of us. I love Christmas time.
We are so blessed to celebrate the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ. "Away in a manger, no crib for his bed, The little Lord Jesus laid down his sweet head; The stars in the heavens looked down where he lay,The little Lord Jesus, asleep on the hay. Be near me, Lord Jesus; I ask thee to stay Close by me forever, and love me, I pray. Bless all the dear children in thy tender care, And fit us for heaven, to live with thee there. The cattle are lowing, the poor baby wakes; But little Lord Jesus, no crying he makes. I love thee, Lord Jesus; look down from the sky And stay by my cradle till morning is nigh." I love my Savior. I love you all so much! i Cant wait to talk to yall in just 4 days on skpe!! What a blessing that is to us all! Stay close to Jesus and he will always stay close to us. till Friday!!all my love and prayers always,
