I got a transfer document today and we found out that I am leaving and going to Wichita in a car! I’m so sad to leave Sister Manu & this amazing area. I love it here but the Lord knows best! I will be the senior companion to a new sister who just finished her training. Maize 1st Ward, here I come.
Hello & Happy Holidays!
Family & Friends I hope and pray you all had a wonderful holiday. Thank you so much for your prayers, gifts, and love to Sister Manu and I. We love all of you. Thank you. This season is an incredible time to serve, love, and embrace the Gift of our Savior, Jesus Christ. Christmas time in the mission field was absolutely incredible. I love it so much.
This past week Sister Manu and I focused on serving others and keeping our thoughts focused on our Savior, Jesus Christ. We had the opportunity to help Sister Hazlett clean and organize her house on Christmas Eve and it was so fun. We are so blessed with amazing members. We also met some amazing new investigators this week and they are preparing for baptism in January.
In Luke 2 it tells the story of Christ birth and I would love to share that with you.
“4 And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judæa, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:)
5 To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child.
6 And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered.
7 And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.
8 And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.
9 And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.
10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
12 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,
14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
15 And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us.
16 And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger.
17 And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child.
18 And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds.
19 But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart.
20 And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them.”
I am so grateful for the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ. I know He lives and is the Savior and Redeemer of the world. He was born in humble circumstances, walked among people who despised Him, He performed miracles, He was crucified for us. He is the Prince of Peace, The Lord of Lords, and the King of Kings. May we all remember our Savior throughout the year.
I hope you all have an amazing week!
