"I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas" -December 19th, 2016

Well, we have had great week here in Prattville, Alabama! 

...Other than a bug that has been going around that we both have been fighting...

But hey, it definitely didn't stop us!

At the beginning of this week we had a great exchange with some Elders in our zone and I was able to spend time with Elder Stuart again! It was a good day and great to be with Elder Stuart again. 

A few days later we had our mission Christmas party! We had a zone conference in the morning and learned a lot of great stuff. Then in the afternoon we had a talent show and also watched a movie! We watched Zootopia and it was awesome! haha I'll attach a picture of the prattville missionaries from the party. In the devotional we read the story of Christ's birth and sang the hymns that correlate. It really helped bring the feeling of Christmas and keep our thoughts on the true meaning of CHRISTmas. 

Then the next day was another one of those extra special Saturdays. Joy, Jannice, and Jordan were all baptized and it was perfect. There's something very tender and special when a whole family decides to be baptized together. It was a very spiritual meeting and i'm so grateful for the opportunity that I had to be a part of their whole conversion process. It's also amazing because this has all come from an amazing member in our ward who was introduced us to four people now who have been baptized. It truly shows the power that members have in missionary work! It may be in the 70's here on Christmas but i'd take this type of a White Christmas (baptism) over real snow any day! 

Well, i'm going to keep it short this week since we'll be talking in six days:) 

I hope y'all have a great week and I wish each of you and very Merry Christmas!!
