Week 97: Merry Christmas!

Posted on December 25, 2016 at 10:25 PM

Hi friends!

I've had a really great week! I'm serving in a great ward. I have an excellent companion. I've got the best house in the mission, living with the Turnbulls. And it's Christmas time!  I'm feeling grateful.

So my new companion is Elder Clements from Raleigh, North Carolina. He's an awesome guy. We get along super well and are having a great time together. He's brand new to the mission, so I'm helping him get to know SLC and how things work around here. He's learning Spanish, but is off to a great start. He's very humble and hard working and a good friend. This is gonna be a great transfer.

So on Saturday night there was a Christmas event for the Hispanics, at the Conference Center called Luz de las Naciones, or Light of the Nations. They had traditional Latin music and dances. It was awesome! Hispanics are great. The Conference Center was LOUD. People were standing and clapping and cheering, etc. It was a party.

So Kevin, the kid who got baptized last week, is doing great. He's gonna get the Priesthood next week! We're excited to see him progressing well! He's a great kid.

We're teaching some other people who are doing well but could still use some prayers. Keep in mind Augustina, Breanna, Cristal, and Paola. Thanks.

I love the people here. Being a missionary is amazing. I'm so blessed. And I'm very much looking forward to Christmas. I hope you all have a great week. And don't forget Jesus!

Merry Christmas, y'all! I love ya!
