Words cannot express all of the feelings I've been feeling! To start, I am so so so eternally grateful for the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ. This is a wonderful time of the year for people to remember Him, and all that He has done for us. And I love it! The Christmas season is a completely different experience as a missionary and it's incredible. You get to see sides of people that you never see, people are more open to speaking about Christ, and you get to feel His presence stronger than at any other time. It's the bessssst. Why can't it be like this all year!?
Sowe were able to go to a member, Schwester Sieburts for lunch and she made such good food, in such large quantities I thought I was going to die. Instead I just rolled down the stairs and down the street, who needs to walk when you can roll? After our appointment with her we went to visit another member, Schwester Haderlie, who had also made us cake. Cake!? Ah I don't know how I survived that one. We helped her with her carpets throughout her house and had some good laughs.
Today we took some good naps and then went to the Daums for raclette and games. It's been a good week. :)
"As we commemorate the birth of Jesus Christ two millennia ago, we offer our testimony of the reality of His matchless life and the infinite virtue of His great atoning sacrifice. None other has had so profound an influence upon all who have lived and will yet live upon the earth. ...We bear testimony, as His duly ordained Apostles— that Jesus is the Living Christ, the immortal Son of God. He is the great King Immanuel, who stands today on the right hand of His Father. He is the light, the life, and the hope of the world. His way is the path that leads to happiness in this life and eternal life in the world to come. God be thanked for the matchless gift of His divine Son."
