How was your Semana de Pavo y de Gracias? I learned so much more of what it means to be grateful for every miracle and blessing!
We've been working a lot with Bryan, who really wants to make a change in his life. Part of his family are members and they've made a huge impact on him in his life. We've talked a lot to him about wearing the
entire armor of God in order to resist temptation and overcome trials of faith. It's so important for us to be aware how much of an example we can be to each other. He's talked about falling into peer pressure and wants to help his friends find God in their lives. I definitely know as we use all the tools our Heavenly Father has given us, we will be enabled and strengthened to overcome any trial that comes our way.
Yesterday, we met Patricia, who really didn't want to talk a ton when we first walked up to her. Right as we were about to leave, we decided to show her the new holiday video, called A Savior is Born, to really
help her come to more understand for herself why Jesus Christ was born and what that means for her and her family. She lit up as the video talked about "rejoicing greatly" that Christ was born for us to give us the hope we need amidst the craziness of this life. We told her that we, just like the Angels to the shepherds in the Nativity story, are called to bring good tidings of great news and to share the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ! She excitedly set up a return appointment for this week with her whole family.
I hope you all have an amazing week! Stay warm! Things are definitely cooling down here in the Heartland, but it's definitely the most wonderful time of the year!i love you all so much! You're always in my prayers!
