Our investigator Michael, 16 years old, is getting baptized this Saturday! But get this, he wanted our help as missionaries. He sees spirits in his home. Which is not really in line with our beliefs in the church. He is a normal kid, but Filipinos are very superstitious. And apparently his neighborhood is over an old cemetery soooo..... what..... Yeah. Weird. But he is so ready, prepared and excited to be baptized on Saturday!
The S family. My heart fills with happiness when I just think of them. I love them! They committed to keep the word of wisdom without a problem. Even though they love coffee and brother smokes. GAH EVERYTHING IS JUST SO EASY AND PERFECT FOR THEM. We taught a lesson on repentance with our bishop. We focused on the nature of god and you could say we all walked out crying. So excited for family home evening tonight with our bishopric and their family. This ward is so awesome at fellowshipping. I love it all.
Also, I was just recalling on my favorite Christmas gift. The only one I can really even remember that impressed me was the beautifully framed picture of the temple Mom and Dad gave me a few years ago. I think that's the only time I have cried receiving a gift on Christmas. It is still the best gift god could give us, this gospel. Prophets, temples, missionaries. All to bring us closer to Him here on earth and to eternal life with him.
Well I wont be emailing next week, so I love you all! Skype on Wednesday
