AYYY SEMANA DE LA NAVIDAD! COMO ESTAMOS FAMILIA
Wow. well i think skype will be at 4 oclock here or 12 noon in AZ. We are doing it with a family in the ward and
with Gilson´s computer too. We dont have rules like that so we are all good...I dont know my account exactly
haha so i might use Gilson´s account and add you, i dont know. Itll be fine!
Well when i told you my comp was from South of Chile thats literally all i knew. He is Elder Pinilla from a small
city called Yungay a little South of Santiago. He was going to serve in Venezuela but it is really dangerous and
they cant have missionaries there now. He has a little over a year in the mission. Ive learned a lot from him
already! We are planning some cool activities for this transfer!! He was already in this ward on the other side
(there are 4 missionaries) so he knows a lot of the members!
This week we were basically meeting people with Elder Pinilla so that he knows the sector. We had a ward
activity Saturday and they asked me in the morning before it if i could be the angel...It was horrible ahah
because i just mimic talked while someone read behind a curtain. But it was just for the Primary so it was funny!
And then the Relief Society had a activity of their talents and everyone people something. There was a knit
picture thingy but it was so cool because it was the Mormon Trail and it had Winter Quarters!! I tried to
steal/borrow/buy it for Allison but they didnt want to hahah. Im trying my best to make desserts for christmas
as good and you make them mom but we will see haha i made sugar cookies and i will make cinnimon rolls
As much fun as Christmas is, what is the reason for Christmas? Christ was born. And why does that matter?
I testify to all of you that without this birth, this child, this Man, this life, and this Atonement, we have no hope.
This is no reason for life. But, He was born. He lived. He suffered for us in the Gardin and on the Cross. He died
for us. But, the third day, he was ressurrected. He did all of this so that we can follow His example. That we
can live again. But it all started with his Birth. There wasn´t any room in the Inn or in the hearts of the people,
but let us make room. Let us accept God´s Gift to us. I know that Christ was born. It isn´t a story. He was born,
and He lived. Find His influence in your life, accept Him, embrace His love and His Gift.
I love you guys so much. I have been blessed all my life and i dont know why I deserve any of this. But I know
that my Father in Heaven loves me and has sent me to this time, and this family. I am willing to give 2 years for
Him and whatever else He asks me. Two years isnt enough to give, but it is what I can. I ask that you all do the
same. Find what you can give your Father in Heaven this Christmas and this year.
