A great week of freezing cold temperatures, and lots of snow. Definitely missing Texas now!
Highlights of the week:
#1 Obvious number one is going to be Skyping the family! The perfect lift to keep me going strong!
#2 Aki from Eritrea, Raweya from Sudan, and Kinsey from Idaho
haha Aki is still improving! His baptism will happen in January for sure, he just needs a little bit more of a push!
Raweya is new! We taught her with Bishop and his wife, and it was great. We got her an Arabic B of M, and when her husband gets back from traveling, he wants to meet with us too! She gave us a couple referrals for other refugees that would be open too! I learned a lot about the Muslim culture and religion from her! She also said she is going to teach us Arabic! Salamalako! (Means Hi) Masalama (means bye)
Kinsey and Rob are a Part member family, and the lessons have been going great. We brought a member couple with us and they connected very well, and we read Mosiah 18 with them. It was powerful, and when we committed them to come to church, she accepted happily! The Spirit really has been working on them. She is pondering baptism, and we have committed that already, next lesson we are going to set the date!
#3 Christmas Eve and Christmas!
We were busy with a lot of appointments and teaching (yeah we get no days off in the Lord's work) but it was really great and we spent a lot of time with non-members and less-actives, not just visiting members on those days. (Last Christmas was mostly just active members).
This week is going to be a super busy week for Elder Leon and I, but we are ready for it. Excited for the new month on the mission!!
#HappyNewYear, make it great! 2016 :)
