Hello everyone!! It was so good to see you on skype family!
This week was good! We had a lesson with this Filipino lady named "R" and we talked about the atonement and how Christ knows everything we go through and she started crying. Her marriage is kind of sad and I think she is kind of lonely but we were telling her about that and about baptism and true happiness and help through trials and she was just crying and we asked her to be baptized and she said yes! The spirit was way strong. Her baptismal date is Jan 26. She is soooo busy so I'm afraid we won't get to meet with her enough and move her date but pleeeease pray for her to be able to meet with us. At the end of the lesson she gave the closing prayer and half way through she started crying and she said she was way grateful to meet us and that she promised to get baptized. so... yeah it was pretty awesome. The spirit was really strong and I'm excited for her! Pray she will make that date!! Christmas was good. Christmas eve we just caroled with some members to inactive members for 6 hours.. ha it was way fun though. This ward is so awesome. Christmas we woke up to a million treats and presents from our ward! So awesome! Then we had a few meal appointments with members, we spent a lot of the day finding though. No better way to spent Christmas than serving Christ right? It was good. This week is New Years and that's way bigger than Christmas here so we have a few days where the mission asked us to deep clean our apartments and then another to have a Book of Mormon read-a-thon.. ha. So we won't be finding this week too much because its too hard to right now, but we`re still just looking for people to teach here in Togane. People are being flaky about follow up appointments so pray that we get to teach some lessons! Things are good! I love Togane! I love you all! Thanks for all your prayers and love!
Happy New Year!!!
Just doing some housing (tracting).
