December 23, 2013 HELLO FAMILY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! <3 How are all of you?! Life is great here! Really feeling the Christmas Spirit! It’s really strange being away from home and having it so hot here! BUT! I love the idea of really having Christmas the way that Christ would! Sharing the joy, and serving others! SO! I really couldn't be happier with how this Christmas will be! WHAT ARE YOUR CHRISTMAS PLANS?! :) ALSO!!!!!!! S.S. GOT BAPTIZED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WHOOT!!!!!!!! She rocks! Two other people were baptized also! J. and B! They are all really close! IT was truly amazing! I have pictures to send! Elder Isberto (Woodlands elder DL) baptized S.S., Elder Tseng baptized B. and Sam L. baptized J! It was really neat! And every one of the girls after they came out of the font cried with tears of joy, peace, and filled with the spirit! It was such a sweet experience to be there! That was the biggest miracle of the week!!!!!!! SO! We had a Christmas program with President and Sister Mains which was really fun! They read the Christmas story to us and we did a nativity, it was really nice! We sang a lot! And did a little service! Filling stockings for kids at a hospital, it was really fun! We met this really awesome lady on the MRT and she was a recent convert to Christianity! So we met with her and had one of the hardest lessons of my mission!!!!!!!!!!!! BUT! It was really good, the spirit was there and we were able to help answer several questions, and help her to feel of God’s love for her! We have to pass her, but I'm so glad that we had the opportunity to invite her to come unto Christ! We had Christmas dinner at the W’s home!!!!!! IT WAS SO GOOD!!!!!!!!!!!! I do miss American food sometimes haha! I'm going to miss Grandmas cooking on Christmas SOOO MUCH!!!!! They invited the friends from thanksgiving over and it was really good to talk with them again! The elders are going to be teaching them! And hopefully they will come to church soon! F. was a little worried about coming to church and we prayed a lot to understand a way that we can help her! My AWESOME Companion had the amazing idea to give her a tour of the church! So that’s what we are doing tonight! And hopefully she can feel a little more comfortable, and really feel the spirit there! We have seen a lot of miracles from trying to be aware of people around us, opportunities to serve, and striving to gain the trust of members! There is still so much to do! BUT! We are heading in a good direction and I love that we are able to see God's hand in everything we do! The sisters we live with (Sister Black and Sister Alfrey) ROCK!!!!!! They are really great!!! They have made this last transfer the best one yet!!!!!!! I pray that everyone has a MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love you all and am praying for you! I hope that you can feel the love of our Savior Jesus Christ and share it with those around you! We are so blessed! Let us thank Heavenly father and our Prince of Peace by giving gifts of love and service!!!!! I know that we will find that peace and joy through Christ!!!!!!!! Keep on keeping on!!!!!!!!!!!! LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Love Eternally Sister Waldvogel O.W.L.E <3
