Short and Sweet


Helloooo,

This week has been super good and soo much has happened! I don't have a ton of time today, but I'll try to share some of the highlights!

The main highlight of the week was definitely Friday. We had zone conference in Jacksonville, and Elder Gavarret of the seventy came and it was sweet! He is just a really down to earth, real person. He is also funny too hahaha, his hispanic accent just made everything seem so classic. We also got a little sneak peak of the church's new Christmas Initiative video, #LightTheWorld, and it is awesome! It's a lot more focused on actually going and doing the things that Christ did this Christmas season instead of just thinking or talking about them. We are pumped to roll it out and use it in our work. Because the meeting was in East Jacksonville we had to leave at 6am and we didn't get back until 7pm so it was a long day. Driving in the morning was sweet though because it got all the way down to 4C and driving on the inter-state with the windows down made it almost feel like home. 

We have been seeing a ton of miracles from the 40 day fast that our branch has been doing! Everyone's hearts seem so much softer, we are having a ton of success with part-member families, less actives, tracting and even when people chew us out for being on their property they are way more polite so if that isn't a miracle I don't know what is! 

We don't have anyone with a baptismal date right now but we have quite a few people that are on the brink of having a date. We are teaching a family and 2 of the kids (7 &10 years old) have come to church the last couple weeks and they are going to be a part of the branch's primary program next week and the parents promised to come... if that doesn't melt your heart and want to join the church I'm not sure what will.

Anyways things here are just really moving along, even the weather has been amazing!
