My Christmas Onesie PJ's

Hey Everybody! How are things going? Good to hear! (Just imagine me pausing to listen like Dora does!)  But things have been awesome here!!  I am going to give a short weekly update since we only have 1 hour to email today and I'll be Skyping on Friday!  Woohoo!! You know what that means??? It's Christmas!  I have been  out for a while now!  At the end of this transfer is my 6 month mark! WOW! That was fast! Anyway, here we go…

MONDAY - is the same as always.  We emailed, shopped and played snooker.  To which Elder Allred and myself are still tied.  The battle will continue after the New Year! But we also did a bit of finding to build our teaching pool!  No luck, but mean people are awesome! We just laugh at it now.  We love opposition! Just like in video games, it means we are going the right way!

TUESDAY - We just had a whole day of finding!  Woohoo!! Also, this week was pretty warm…lots of sunshine!  It should be close to 18 celsius on Christmas.  We have a jet stream from the Caribbean coming in! Woohoo!!

WEDNESDAY - You guessed it! Finding!  It was starting to get exhausting, but we powered through! We found 'N' exactly like this.  We have faith!  And FAITH IS POWER! (That's my motto!)

THURSDAY - Weekly Planning!  And we ate 6 tubes of sour cream and onion Pringles…which was a bad choice!  But is was awesome nonetheless.  Weekly planning can be a drag sometimes, but it is necessary!  The Lord can't guide your footsteps unless you are willing to move your feet!

FRIDAY - We had our Ward Christmas Party.  It was fun.  They did a little Nativity and it was a good one.  Roberts 1st has still got 'em though! They also had a ton of food!! Chicken curry is fantastic!  Put it over some rice and it's enough to make a grown man weak at the knees! It's awesome!!

SATURDAY - We taught 'T' and then we taught 'N' a recent convert lesson.  Her friend from England was there so we kind of taught her as well.  Her friend was interesting… but it was an okay lesson.  After 'N', we went finding! Woo!

SUNDAY - was the Christmas service in Church.  It was really good.  They read scriptures and sang all the songs.  It made me excited to be here for Christmas!  What better way to show my appreciation for the birth of the Saviour than to serve here!  Sunday was also spent finding!  We just love love love it!

Anyway, this week has been fantastic.  I encourage all of you to remember Christ this Christmas.  And always be grateful for all you receive! 

Moroni 10:33 is my ponderizing for the week! We can become holy without spot through Christ!

Merry Christmas Everybody! And a Happy New Year! And to my family, SEE YOU ON FRIDAY!

Til the work is done!

-Elder Mickelsen
