Hope yall had a very merry Christmas.
It was a very nice Christmas being able to talk to the family. We were able to spend Christmas at the mission home with a bunch of missionaries. It was really fun. We went Caroling with the Mission President and other missionaries in that Neighborhood. We also went caroling as a district with the Ottinellis before they left for Orlando to our investigators and less actives we visit.
We were able to see Micheal and Alejandra and Karen and Daberto. We showed them Joy to the World. It was a great lesson and then after they asked if we could sing Oh esta todo bien "come come ye Saints." It was really cool. The spirit was really strong.
We were able to do some finding in the outskirts of our area in smaller towns and we were able to find a couple of pockets of hispanics.
This week we have the opportunity to celebrate New Years. May we each take the time to reflect on the past year on the good memories we had. May we take the time to think of things to improve on in the coming year. May we use New Years as a time to use the atonement to help us change our behavior and attitude. May we try and enjoy the moment more, visit the temple more, read the scriptures more, and most importantly make time for what is most important. Said President Monson, "Stresses come in our lives, regardless of our circumstances. We must deal with them the best we can, but should not let them get in the way of what is most important-and what is most important usually involves the people around us." Dieter F. Uchtdorf said "love should perhaps be spelled T-I-M-E" May we make time for the gospel and our family. May all y'all have a happy New Year!!!!
