I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas... (Dec 15)

Except for I dont think well have it this year.. :( It has been pretty cold, but no snow yet.. hopefully soon! 

But! Christmas is coming, which is a very exciting thing! :) Getting ready for Christmas has been a fun thing here in Győr, mostly because the missionaries are doing quite a bit of work, and it has been hard to find solid member support.. but, we'll see how it goes! I think our Christmas program will be good. :) We will be acting out the Nativity with a lot of youth and children! Hopefully it gets the kids in gear to understand the why of Christmas! 

Well, I love you all tons! Have a great week, stay warm and safe and remember to #sharethegift with !! :)

Santa's Coming, Santa's... Came? (Dec 8)

So this week was way fun! Kind of a lot of craziness, but what do you expect from a mission? :) 

We went caroling in the belváros and a lot of people were very curious in who we are haha. So we got to talk to a lot of people that way! We also went ice skating today for P-Day, way fun! Our district is a lot of fun. :) 

As Christmas is approaching, I encourage you all to show a little more charity, be a little more loving, and think about Christ just a little bit more. I know that the more we do, the more often and openly He communicates with us. And make sure to be sharing website!! The church does an amazing job with those videos, lets show the world what they are all about. :) 

Love you!! Stay safe and warm and happy! :)

  this is barbs. :) 
 this is Sindy--yet another amazing spiritual thought at English class! This girl was baptized not even a few months ago, and she is already teaching the gospel. :) way cool! 
 The nativity, set up in the belváros. 
 Me and Barbs, in front of the giant Christmas tree! way way pretty. :) 
 and this is us ice skating! fun, fun! 
And the caroling! The kids are investigators (should be baptized, but their parents wont let them) and were passing out flyers as we were singing! so awesome to see how Christmas can touch so many people. :)

The Seasons are Greeting Us! (Dec 1)

Woo-hoo! I love the Christmas season! It is a special, magical time for everyone. :) Especially for us missionaries as we are going around and talking about Christ all year long, Christmas is a good time for us when more people are willing to take a minute out of their day and talk a little about Jesus. Kind of a good feeling to see how much the Spirit of the Lord can affect people. 

Otherwise, our week was rather nice, nothing too special happened. Mostly we just taught some people and helped out with the members in their various duties and activities. For example, next week, I will be playing the piano in the ward's primary program! This should be fun.. haha. Pray for me!

Also! As much as you are capable, share the website with everyone and everywhere :) the Church is launching a big campaign, so make sure you are ready for when it hits!

On Sunday night we had a little family dinner with all the missionaries and some members and investigators. way fun every week. :)
