Semana (Week) 64: Feliz Navidad!!

Virginia's baptism
Hope everyone had a very merry Christmas! In the mission it almost feels like any other day, just that we had to go home at 7 Christmas Eve and Day for all of there "partying" that was going on in the streets.  In other words, lots of drunk people.  But really good news!! We had a baptism this Saturday for Virginia. She has been listening to the missionaries for years, and finally took the step. I can see that she was very happy to do it. It was super special that she was able to be baptized on Christmas Day.

We hope to be having a baptism in the New Year of Esmerelda. We have been teaching her for 3 months, and have seen the biggest progress in her and her family. This family has been a miracle family for me and I honestly love them sooooo much!

I love this quote, "Christmas is not a day or a season, but it is a condition of heart and of mind".

We can always feel the spirit of Christmas when we are in the service of our brethren.  It's not about the presents, the lights, the songs, or the snow.  It's the service that we can show to others and the love of God that we can help others feel.  And it's something that we should do ALWAYS.

If you want to show grattitud to our Savior for giving us everything, do something for someone today, and not just today, every day.

I know that He Lives!
