Merry Christmas again! i hope everyone had an enjoyable Christmas week and that all is well. it sounds like everyone is well and having fun during the break. i had a fantastic Christmas and really enjoyed being able to see yall and to talk for a bit. i miss everyone and being all together, but i wouldnt trade being here serving the lord for anything… even an Ipad Mini from Tiff. this week has been great and very memorable. it was definitely one of my favorite Christmases ive had. i am so enjoying serving the Lord, especially at this time of the year! we have seen a lot of miracles this year and its been such a blessing to bring people closer to christ. i havent got a whole lot of time this week, i spent a lot of time reading yalls emails and stories. but it was an awesome week and i am doing very well! the work is good and is showing signs of picking up. my love of the gospel is growing as well as my testimony. if one thing has come from my mission this far is that i have come to know that the Church is true and that Christ is my Savior. i love you all and am so grateful for all that yall do! i hope you have a great week!
