Another Week in Paradise (December 9)

Hello, family!

It's been a fun week :) This weekend was really special and fun because we had both the Christmas party and the Wartburg Christmas parade! (Wartburg is a town in our ward boundaries - it's in the elder's area) It was so much fun! We had some investigators and less active members attend the party, and it was so much fun!

The parade was also so much fun! The youth designed and built the float. We had elves in the front wrapping presents and the nativity in the back. It was way cute. Also, they made rubber bracelets that say #webelieveinchrist and  The #webelieveinchrist is a twitter account that one of the youth made and will be updating things to it, so it was a great missionary effort. We just walked alongside the float and handed out candy and those bracelets. It was a great time!

We also got to watch the Christmas devotional last night! It was so nice! I hope you all had an opportunity to watch it! It was such a wonderful devotional! I would like to point out that Elder Nelson talked about the most important thing - that through the atonement of Jesus Christ, and living the gospel, we're able to be cleansed from sin, endowed with God's power, and achieve eternal life. Nailed it, Elder Nelson!

I don't have a ton of other things to say, or a ton of time, but I love all of you so much and I hope that you have a wonderful wonderful week!
