Fresh Start! -December 6th, 2016

Hey y'all! We've had a pretty busy past week... 

Started the week with Elder Opare packing and getting ready to head out along with saying goodbye to the people here in Prattville. Then on Wednesday we had Transfer which is when I got Elder Coleman! He's awesome by the way. We get a long really well already. This is going to be a fantastic transfer. 

Then on Thursday is when the fun began! We headed back to Birmingham again for MLC. It was a great meeting and we learned a ton. We've still been focusing on the basics for the younger missionaries in this mission. This meeting was focused around a few things including faith and prayer. We'll be taking the information and training's that we received and presenting them at Zone Training tomorrow! A few Elder and I took a picture with President because we were all wearing green ties! I'll attach it below. 

This week we also have our Temple trip on Thursday! I'm so grateful that we're still able to attend the temple in our mission and have the spiritual uplift that it brings. 

We've also began the Christmas festivities! We had our ward Christmas party on Saturday and it was a blast. It was a night in Bethlehem theme! We've also broken out the Christmas music! AND a few weeks back I found an awesome tree in our apartment closet with lights and ornaments so we've got it set up and looking brilliant! I'll get y'all a pic. 

In other news, we've also got a family that we've been teaching that has a baptism date for the 17th if y'all could keep them in your prayers. 

One last thing that I wanted to share with y'all is our missions vision for this month. We've set a very high goal this month for baptisms. We're focusing on having every companionship in the mission baptize this month but also helping recent converts and less active members get to the temple to do baptisms for the dead! The vision is that we're going to have a "White Christmas"! So yeah, if y'all could also keep our mission in your prayers for this months goal, I'd really appreciate it! 

That's all I've got for this week! I love y'all and will talk to you again soon!
