On Monday we went with the branch to deliver bigas to some members. It was amazing to see their faces light up as they received the gift. It was truly the spirit of Christmas.
Tuesday I had exchanges. We had a good day. We taught some great lessons. My favorite lesson was one we taught to investigators that were hearing anti Mormon stuff. We focused on the book of Mormon and I really felt the spirit as I testified. That book is true and it's the keystone. It's so important to this church and can answer all of our questions.
the best lesson was taught to this great part member family. We always leave feeling happy and inspired from them.
we taught some great lessons in the morning. we are really excited for some of our investigators that will be baptized soon and how we can see the Lord's hand in their lives and how they are changing their lives and feeling God's love. We saw huge leaps forward with some other investigators. the gospel is truly the answer to all of our problems.
we taught a great lesson on the Atonement of Jesus Christ. Sometimes I think we can overlook just how important that event was and what it means for us. I encourage you to read Alma 7:11-13. He has experienced everything. He loves us and will succor us and help us according to our needs. I can't explain all but remember that Jesus has paid the price and all He asks in return is our obedience to His Gospel.
we taught some very good lessons. I was inspired by a man that has very little but he saw someone with less than him and gave to them. This reminded me to just do what we can.
we had an earlier curfew because of Christmas Eve. We taught and visited some great people. The best part was we visited this old nanay who is a member and she was sad because her husband wasn't there. She said he was usually the one to get the tree and decorate and now shes just too weak and sick. So we got her a tree and decorated it. It was such an amazing experience. It helped nanay and made me realize that is what Christmas is all about. It's about lifting others and doing as Christ would. later that night we were fed really good by the branch president, it was so cool.
