Week 27 Feliz Navidad de Texas!!

I don't have a ton of time this week but la familia garsa came to our branch Christmas party. They made a ton of friends and the mom is getting work off next week so they can come to church! They are soooo awesome. We helped build the house in eagle lake and helped brother turner fix his house up as well. We went fishing today at a members house. We have interviews with our mission president tomorrow and then Wednesday we have a mission Christmas conference. For Christmas we don't have any plans so we will see what happens haha. Christmas Eve we are going to a members house.

I love being a missionary during this time of year and helping others remember the true spirit of Christmas. There is nothing I would rather be doing. I love this gospel and I love my savior Jesus Christ. 

Have a great week and Merry Christmas :)

week 26 HURRY CALL 911

This week was full of miracles!! Elder child and I received an awesome referral from a different set of elders in a different area! Her name is Brenda and she has been in the US for about 2 months. She is from Mexico and is staying here with her family til about February. She is so legit! We have taught her the restoration and she has started to read in the Book of Mormon. We told her that she can receive an answer from god that the Book of Mormon is true and she looked up at us and said (in Spanish) "Really? Have you received an answer"? We were able to testify of the Book of Mormon and invite her to pray about it so she can receive an answer. We are planning to set a baptismal date with her this week! 

After knocking doors pretty much all day, we decided to go to the apartment and get some dinner before we taught English class. We had gotten burgers to cook and on the package it said we could broil them so we thought we would give it a try haha. So we put them in and leave and come back in the room and the oven was glowing sooo we open it up and the oven was on fire. We were so scared haha we started running around, looking for a fire extinguisher and couldn't find one. So I go to grab the phone to call 911 and Elder Child grabs a bucket of water and just dumps it in the oven and the fire got super big then went away really fast haha. We realized after that you aren't supposed to put water on a grease fire but it worked so that is why this week was full of miracles. Haha 
We had a Christmas concert with a Catholic Church and that went good. Ill send pics for that.

Thanks for all you're support and I love you all! 

Have a great week.

I know my subject to my email is very cliche but I love this new
message that the church has come out with this Christmas season. We
have been tracting going around sharing this years christmas video,
helping others realize the true meaning of Christmas and helping
others realize the importance of serving others. It has been awesome
to see people light up as we show this video to them. I love serving
our savior during this time of year. There is truly nothing else I
would rather be doing in my life at this time.

This week I went on an exchange with one of my zone leaders. He is
such an awesome missionary and I loved being with him for a day. He
literally talks to EVERYONE. His area is on bikes and so it was my
first day on bikes on the mission so far haha. My legs were sooo sore
haha. But it was awesome and I loved being able to talk to so many
people on the streets. We stopped at a bus stop and just talked to all
the parents as they were picking up their kids. We helped a guy change
his battery in his car on the side of the road twice. We talked to
joggers and so many other people. I loved being able to be on bikes so
much that the next day elder child and I drove up to the mission
office to try to get bikes to use in our area but there weren't
anymore so we are waiting a couple weeks til they get some fixed. I
think I have said this before but we drive a truck and have about 5 or
6 different little towns in our area so we are planning on keeping the
bikes in the back of our truck and driving to a town then riding our
bikes around town. I'm stoked!

I can't believe how fast time is moving. I hit 6 months on the mission
this week and Christmas is rapidly approaching. This is my favorite
time of year. Partly because I love Christmas and partly because it is
going to be under 40 this week!! It feels sooo nice after going
through this last summer haha :) Also, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO TREYTON this
week on Saturday!

Have a great week everyone love you all!
