So tomorrow something very special is going to happen and I'm so incredibly excited. Chloe's getting married! That honestly boggles my mind. Shout out to you, Chlo, and to your future husband (ahh that's so weird to type), Abel Birk! Ah. Whoah. By the way I took a cute photo with a sign congratulating you guys but uh the computer here won't let me upload it. You can imagine it in your minds... I'll send the sign in the mail or something.
Anyyyyway. Maykey did not get baptized this past week BUT it's just because she wants to get baptized with her son as well! Soo this week we are planning their baptismal service and we are way pumped. She is a spiritual giant and has expressed to us her desire to share this gospel with all of her friends. She wants to see them all in the life to come so she's going to start inviting them to church! She has an awesome love for this gospel. I love her.
This week we went to the temple with Familia Cubilite. They brought their son and we had a great lesson on the temple grounds. We have put so many baptismal dates with them, that this time we asked them to choose a date as their homework this week. Apolinar is so beyond ready and willing, just something is holding Ana back and we are not sure quite what. She hasn't attended church the past 7 times, while he's always continued to go alone. He expressed to us in church that he is going to move forward, even if she does not. He is honestly so full of wisdom and understanding and his testimony is extremely firm. He makes me feel like I am in the presence of a general authority.
This week we had a meeting at the offices for all the Hermanas. We talked about being healthy and all that good stuff. It was fun to see friends and be with people.
Christmas is coming up which is awesome. It makes me think more and more about how much I love Jesus Christ and how grateful I am for Him and all that He did for us. I testify that our Savior really was born, and it's because of Him that we celebrate this Christmas day.
Just one more week of this transfer and I'll finish my training. Uh... I'm not freaking out at all. Promise.
My goal right now is to trust more God's abilities than my own. It is through Him that we can do all things.
I love you all, Merry Christmas,
Write me! I would love to hear from you! :)
