Peace on Earth

Dear Family,

This week has been so busy again! I hardly believe how much we manage to pack into one day, let alone a week. Both of my companions are going home next week, so we have been working harder than ever. They want to make these last few days count! Here's a couple stories for the week.
We found a new FAMILY to teach! I am so excited! I've never had the chance to teach a whole family before! The Mom, Hilda, is from Honduras, and she doesnt speak English. Her oldest son Freddie doesnt speak English either. Her son Christian and daughter Ricxi both speak English though. So, we have been teaching them in some strange form of Spanglish. Hahaha! But, it works! We invited them to be baptized, and they accepted! We will be helping them choose a date this week.
This week was also our ward Christmas party. We had a huge dinner and tons of people came! We had many less active and non-members come! Hilda and Rixci came too! All of us missionaries were like little kids in a candy store! It was awesome! I also got to play the piano in the program while the Young Women sang.
We got to see the Christmas Devotional last night as well. It was incredible! And we had a part-member family come too! We loved it! And, I LOVED what President Eyring said about Jesus Christ being the light of the World. I have been studying that this season. In the topical guide, just look up Jesus Christ, light of the world, and read all of the scriptures! They're amazing!
The biggest news of the week is the He is the Gift initiative. The Church made a 3 minute video about the true meaning of Christmas. They have given every missionary enough pass-along cards to give out ten per day. We have been doing it! This has been a huge miracle! And to top it off, all of the advertising on Youtube is for this video during the month of December. It is a missionary Christmas Miracle! How great!
I love you all! Have a great week!
