Dear Family,

I can't believe its Christmas already!! yay!  It is the most wonderful time of the year :) This week was kind of slow  but we had a few really good lessons with investigators that are progressing.  They are so ready for the gospel, we are just praying that they recieve their answers soon.  One of them's brother died the other week.  So he is really going through a hard time.  But he's been reading about the plan of salvation in Alma 40, and its been helping him.  He can only meet on Wednesdays though so since this wednesday is christmas we won't be seeing him until next wednesday.  Our other investigator is going to the states for a month :( but she said she is going to read and stuff and hopefully try to stop by a church when she is in boston. Both of them accepted being baptized when they recieve their answers so pray for them!! We had a huge Stake Christmas party on Friday.  Tons of people came, mostly members but we had a few from our area that weren't members and we have an appointment with one of them tonight.  We went to visit a member in the hospital and the lady that was next to her has been in the hospital for 9 months.  We sang and shared a scripture and she started asking us lots of questions.  We went back the next day and taught her the lesson of the restoration of the gospel of Jesus Christ.  She is really receptive and is going to read the book of mormon.  The elders passed by yesterday and gave her a blessing of health.  
Tomorrow we are going to the President's house for Christmas Dinner and then after we have like 5 more dinner appointments haha every wants to feed us.  So it will be a very busy Christmas Eve!  Christmas we are going to visit everyone for a few minutes, drop of treats, and sing christmas carols.  And then we get to skype!  Yay I am so excited to see everyone.  It sounds like it is a full house over there.  It will be so fun to see everyone!  

I hope we all remember the true meaning of Christmas, the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ.  The best gift ever given was wrapped in swadling clothes.  What will we give our Savior this year for all the gifts he has given us?   

Merry Christmas,  May we all draw closer to the Lord.
