For ye shall go out with joy and be led forth with peace:
the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing
and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.
ISAIAH 55:12

Week 30

FELIZ NAVIDAD!!!!!! I am so happy!!! I have never had so much fun! I love being with Hermana Tolman! we are already best friends! and we are still riding our bikes around and talking to every person we ever see even the ones that we think are hispanic who really arent but then they can lead us to where they really are! Miguel is finally being baptized on saturday! and he is so happy! He is so incredible! The first time that he walked into an lds church building he started crying because he could feel the spirit! and he memorizes everything that the missionaries give him to read! He wanted to be baptized a while ago but him and his girlfriend were not married and now they are so that he can be baptized! it is so amazing! It is so fun to be a missionary at christmas! everyone gives us stuff and then we give it away to everyone else and they are so happy! people give things to the missionaries but we dont need anything but all of our investigators do! so it is great! there have been SO many miracles this week! it is so great to have a fresh start! everything has been so funny lately but amazing! a couple days ago we had a lesson with a man who could see or hear very well and hermana tolman asked him to say the prayer and then we all sat with our arms folded and eyes closed for a minute straight then hermana tolman said the prayer. i had to try so hard not to laugh. and we have found so many new people to teach! we made a goal to talk to every hispanic we see anywhere no matter what the circumstance or how far away or awkward it may be and we have met so many people because we are actually doing it! I am so grateful for this time we have to celebrate our saviors birth! everyone is more nice and more open to hearing the gospel it is so wonderful! i think i have never been happier than when our branch went caroling together a few nights ago! nothing else feels that good! the whole branch running in the snow to the next house with cookies and a keyboard and jingle bells and everyone is so happy and cold and throwing snow and laughing and the people we visit are so happy to have the spirit brought to them and they feel so special it is so fun! i love everything! feliz navidad!!!!!!!!!!
