Hello everyone! Happy Christmas! First of all, have y'all seen the He Is The Gift video? If not, then go on and watch it right now! It is so good. Don't even finish reading this email until you have watched it! chrismas.mormon.org ....................................Wasn't that awesome!!! You should probably share it on facebook or something... ;) Just sayin' Ok, now that you have watched it we can move on. So, this has been a crazy week! Monday seems like a year ago! Haha! That was a crazy day. Right after I finished emailing you we were talking to Bishop and we realized that we had said we were doing a 'He Is The Gift' activity for Family Home Evening that night. Great. Bishop had somewhere else that he needed to be and we had a dinner appointment in 30 minutes. So we had to scramble like crazy! Bit of a stressful evening, but it all worked out in the end and I think people had a good time. At least we hope so. Something really good that came out of it though was that Dylan was there. He is an investigator that we haven't been able to see for a while. He came Monday night to FHE. I got to talk to him a little bit. Then just before he walked out of the room to go home I asked if we could talk to him for a couple of minutes out in the hall. He said yes and we ended up setting up a lesson with him on Friday. When we met with him on Friday he told us that his plan had been to go to FHE and tell us that he wasn't coming back. That he was done. He ended up not saying anything but decided that if we didn't say anything before he left he wouldn't come back. He said he didn't think we were going to say anything, and then when I actually did, he was so grateful. Me TOO! Dang! I would have been so sad if we had lost Dylan just because I hadn't asked if we could talk to him for 2 minutes. I was so grateful that Heavenly Father didn't allow me to loose him by not saying anything. Tuesday was cool. Bishop had a Christmas lunch with his company and invited us to it to eat and then share the 'He Is The Gift' video with his employees. It was really cool and Bishop has had a lot of positive feedback, so that is good :) It was nice to be able to talk to a few former potential investigators too in a non threatening setting. Just casual conversation so they know that we are humans too! Campus is closed now. People are home for the holidays and the place seems dead! It's really weird. We know there are still people around, but we have been really spoiled with campus. We have to actually go FIND people now instead of just being able to step outside and immediately be surrounded by 18 to 30 year olds. So we have to figure out some new strategies. We were recently asked by our mission president though to start setting aside an hour a day to tract with 'He Is The Gift', so that is something new that we will be doing :) CHRIS NEASE IS BACK!!! Did I tell you about Chris? He is a recent convert who dropped off the face of the earth a month or two ago. We called, we texted, we went to his house, we even went to his work! No luck. Then suddenly, Bishop got an interview with him, and we got to have a lesson with him! It was so awesome! I was super happy to see him. Sunday was cool. We went to the Nativity Celebration and got to see The Six perform. You should look them up online. They are performers from Branson. I got a picture with one of them and he even signed my planner. Haha! I felt super dumb, but all the Elders were super jealous ;) Well, that is about all I have time for, dang it! Not enough time! Have an awesome week y'all!
