Hello! I hope your thanksgiving was great! Mine was. I made a pie!
Now that Thanksgiving is over, it is time for Christmas! Here is a link to some great Christmas videos, service projects, and more:
To kick it off, there will be an international day of service this Thursday, December 4th. We are trying to get 100,000 people to do something nice for someone else, which will make it the largest organized day of service ever. So go make someone's day!
We had a few really great lessons this week. One was with a woman named Amanda, who came to church once, but then got really busy working overtime, and we were not able to contact her for a week of two, until she texted us and said she was free on Tuesday. We taught her about the pan of salvation, and the lesson was really special for her because of some things that have happened in her life. She said it made so much more sense than what she had always been told about the afterlife or about our purpose on earth. She is also reading the Book of Mormon and loving it. The only problem is she is currently working on Sundays, but she wants to come to church again, so we are praying that her schedule will change soon.
I am constantly amazed with how the gospel changes people's lives. I just read a talk about how the purpose of the gospel is to make bad people good and good people better, and to change human nature. The Atonement is for Saints as well as sinners. It cleanses us, and it also enables us. Through Christ we can become more than we ever could on our own. I would not be where I am now without Him.
That's all for this week!
