Well first off.. MERRY CHRISTMAS! y Feliz Navidad! y espero que tengan un prospero ano!
This week was a really great one here in the TMM. The Corpus trip went well! We drove there and back all in one piece. So that's a plus. The Christmas Conference was AMAZING! Well.. mostly funny. There was a little devotional about Christmas, then we did the skits, (I remembered the rap) then we did a musical number. We have NEVER run through the whole thing until the actual performance. Let's just say that we are never going to speak of that again and now we have a lot of work to do to build back up the Laredo South Zone's name.. For real. Then we did gift exchanges and ate a TON of chocolate and popcorn.. then we had a health training about not gaining wait. Perfect timing. I still have a lot of chocolate sitting on my desk. It's tempting!
Also. THE REYES FAMILY GOT BAPTIZED!
It was a lot of work and a lot of prayers, but the Lord provided! They are going to be so happy as members:) They are one amazing family. I was looking through my pictures the other day and I found one from the first day we met them! When they went to a branch activity 2 hours after we talked to them in the street. The Lord prepares people to hear and accept this gospel.
So some of the elders had a brilliant idea that we reenact the Nativity scene for the primary on Sunday. So what did they bring? Towels and ties to put on our heads. The members looked at us like we were CRAZY, but those little kids enjoyed it! I really don't think this zone is normal.
Well MERRY CHRISTMAS! I really love you all! I hope you all enjoy it. Take a little time to think about the true meaning of CHRISTmas. We have been given such an amazing gift. We should love an appreciate it every day, not only in this time of the year; but especially now. We have a Father in Heaven that loves us so much. Every single one of us. And an older brother that loved us so much that he suffered for us. For anyone that might be alone this season just remember that you are never truly alone. We will always have a someone with us. That's something that I've learned a lot here on the mission. We will always have a support. When things get hard, there is one person that we can always rely on. And He always knows how we feel.
I love you all! Have a great Christmas!!
con amor,Hermana Hunt
