WOW ..Week 15! & Merry Christmas!

This week was faster than the last! 
How’s everybody doing? I’m doing amazing. I learn something new every single day, and it’s amazing! I LOVE it!
This week was cold and fun i think! 
Monday was more of a relaxed day, we watched the first presidency Christmas Devotional which was awesome of course! after that we returned to our apartment When Pday was over.
Tuesday we had our weekly visit with our buddy Panchhi! Pray for him he’s progressing but very slowlyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy. We passed out A LOT of Flyers that day for our Christmas party and English class. Good COLD day :)

Wednesday went and visited a less active member and was fed a ton! (Members love to watch me eat because they’ve never seen nor knew anyone could eat a lot as much as i do I guess haha!) After that we went to Ping Pong Night! We hold it every Wednesday at the Church :) Super fun to wreck everyone that plays me! (JK HA)

Thursday was a special day, we went to an old folks home and sang for them all Christmas hymns. I’m no singer, but I’d sing again for them any day. Seeing their faces and how happy they were to see us made me cry so hard!! I love them! It was a great experience. 

Friday was an awesome Zone training meeting! I got to meet a lot of new missionaries and learn new things from the Zone Leaders. After i left on a companion exchange with Elder Maeno a Japanese missionary. SO HARD. I had to ONLY speak Japanese and it was very difficult yet a good learning experience. Our next transfer day falls on my birthday so we'll see how that goes! I don't want to go cause I LOVE it here!

Saturday we ended the exchange, tried to meet a few people but they weren't home. So we went to the ward Christmas Party! That was pretty fun and we actually had more nonmembers than members there. GREAT missionary opportunity. The members here are awesome! They literally fear NOTHING when it comes to sharing the gospel.
Which brings me to my next point! This morning I prayed earnestly on what i can share with you today. As I began my study i was studying 2 Nephi 7-8. Lots of good stuff. But the main thing i pulled from that was fearing god more than fearing man. Verse 6 says: I gave my back to the smiter, and my cheeks to them that plucked off the hair. i hid not my face from shame and spitting.
These are the words of Isaiah being quoted by the prophet Jacob. He took the reviling and still followed god! Chapter 8, verse 7-8. Go and look that one up! Basically, to mainly those of you at school still and those with your friends, do not be afraid to share the gospel, stand firm in what you believe (2 Nephi 8:1) and all glory to the God on high! Those who revile against you are there to try and take you down, OR they are waiting to hear your words and testimony of the Gospel! Just remember to follow the Spirit and teach from the heart when the opportunity arises. There’s is nothing more important to a missionary than the members he or she works with. Or to those who are not of this faith, I advise to listen in on to our message :) we can only invite you; we aren’t here to make you attend!
I love you all so very much. Please enjoy and remember the reason for the Season :) 
PS Write me more often people!!!  I’d LOVE to hear from you all! :)
