Week 15!

It's starting to look a lot like Christmas! I'm hot and sweaty all the time. But there are so many cute decorations and lights everywhere that I am really feeling the Pasko spirit! It's a tradition here that if you go caroling at somebody's house they give you money or a little something so there are groups of kids running around and caroling allll the time. It's so so cute!! 

Pakil is doing pretty good!! Sister Cornaby and I are basically reopening again because none of our investigators are progressing:( but we have seen so many miracles as we have been finding and talking to anybody and everybody. There have been some really discouraging days when we feel kind of useless and like nobody cares about our message but we just keep working hard and miracles always happen. The other night we were trying to find some former investigators and it was almost time to go home and we were tired and discouraged because like none of our lessons went through that day and we had walked sooo much. But we asked this guy if he knew the person we were looking for and it was him! It was so funny his face was like who the heck are you and why are you looking for me haha but he ended up being so, so nice and he came to church!!! Missionaries taught him a while ago but now he seems so open to our message. We have such a good feeling about him. So please pray for Brother R! 

We had the opportunity to watch the Christmas Devotional last night! It was so so good!! If you haven't watched it, go to right now and watch it. I loved Sister Burton's talk about the Plan of Salvation. It truly is a plan of happiness. I am so thankful for the Christmas Season and the time we have to think more about our Savior. Because of Him, we will all live again. Because of Him, we can all have happiness and peace!! Take advantage of this Christmas Season to get to know your Savior, Jesus Christ. I love this gospel so so much. I love the Book of Mormon. I love all of you and I hope you have a great week!! Merry Pasko!
