Merry early Christmas! This is a great time of year to share our
testimonies and people won't look at us totally crazy! So take
advantage of it. We are doing a new thing that I got the idea from a
random missionary in Canada. He randomly sent a finding packet out to
any missionaries he saw, and I happened to be one of them. It has all
these awesome ideas to find people to teach. Anyways, one thing it
says is #TOAST, talk out awkward situations together. In case you are
misinformed, missionary work can awkward as mess! So we are going to
text in our best awkward moment with that hashtag in effort to break
the awkward bubble. It gets kinda fun sometimes!
Recently we have been seeing every member possible, in response to our
bishop's challenge to give every member a Christmas initiative card.
EVERY MEMBER HOUSEHOLD. That's about 215 in our Ward. We 80 left so we
are rolling! The other day we walked forever and saw members, then a
random 15 year old kid was chillin with his girlfriend (we assume) and
he yells, "are you guys missionaries?" We of course respond and were
like, "you wanna learn form missionaries?" He's says yea! We get his
info and walk away and hear he girl say, "why did you do that!?" Haha
that's great. We went by and his dad told us to go away :). Worth a
In our lesson with Ron and Wendy we simply invited them to read from
the Book of Mormon everyday and pray about it. They have been coming
to church every week for awhile but are going their own slow pace on
the road to baptism. I felt they needed to get serious about the BOM
reading. Hopefully they do! They are the coolest couple ever and are
so sincere. Keep them in your prayers.
We are getting ready for our Christmas party next week with a couple
other zones and I get to see Elder Johnson! My daughter! Haha it
should be good. It is busy these days so time is flying and it's
pretty weird. I just keep chugging!
I hope you all are being bosses and have a good Christmas break.
Love you all!
Did a 1st Ward ministry night here in Vacaville stake and went to a
less actives home who had the train set from heaven! Reminded me of
when I used to watch toy trains and trucks drive around for fun as a
Elder Waites had family friends that sent him this bomb diggety tree!
