On Tuesday, we taught her at one of the members' houses and had a really great lesson about how she can receive answers through the Holy Ghost. Thursday, we taught her about the Gospel of Jesus Christ, focusing on the Sacrament, and why it is so important. It was really cool to see how she is beginning to truly understand all that we've been teaching her.
Friday night was our Ward Christmas Party and she loved it! The ward members have been super friendly in welcoming her in. Lastly, we got to attend the temple lights with her on Saturday with our Ward Mission Leader. The Spirit on the temple grounds is so strong, it's amazing. Inside one of the buildings, there's about 40 paintings depicting the life of Christ along with a compilation video of His life as well, which seals the perfect Spirit felt there.
This week, we also got to do a lot of tracting way up north in our area. It's funny because pretty much all of our area has a beach nearby, so we knocked on doors up in Avalon and got to teach some pretty cool people!
We look forward to the upcoming Christmas Week to sing more carols to those we meet and invite the Christmas Spirit into their homes!
For all of you who haven't watched the new Christmas video that the Church has released, I invite you to head over to christmas.mormon.org as soon as you can to watch it!
To all of you who are enjoying snow and cold weather at this time of the year, I invite you to share some with the people of Australia! Haha Merry Christmas everyone!
Love you heaps,
