Christmas with the Savior's Name on My Heart - Week 35 (Transfer 6, Week 4)

Hello All!!!!

Christmas was awesome. All of the missionaries always talk about how cool it is to be a missionary during Christmas and I'm like....reaaaaaallllyyyy. But then they were right, and it was!

Christmas morning we went over to the S* family. They are soooo awesome. We love them! Most of the people in that house are either non-religious, don't believe in God, or do believe in God but are mad at Him for some reason except for Brother S* who is our Branch Mission Leader. He is one of the kindest people I have ever met. He loves his wife soooo muchhh! It's so cute! They have an amazing family. Him and his wife are taking care of their adorable grandson. (Will attach a picture.) Anyway, so we had lunch with them and shared a short little message about the Savior. They were all very respectful and the Spirit was strong and we were so grateful for their love. I love people like that. Afterwards we went Caroling. This old lady answered the door and Sister Tang said, "We just want to sing you a song!" She said, "Come in!!!" So we went in. Hahahah! There we about 10 people there, having Christmas dinner around the table. We sang them all Silent Night and bore our witness of the Savior and His divine mission. The room went silent as they listened to us and their eyes all filled with tears. It was soooo sweet! Such an amazing moment that I was so grateful to spend with this family that I didn't know, but felt I had known for a long time. So that was a good experience. Also, the "man of the house" happened to own a recording studio and said we can come record a song for free. So yeah...we are going to...Get ready for me to send one home for you all to hear!!!!

It was so amazing to talk to my family. Felt like I had never even left. I love you guys.

Anyway, just want to let you all know that I know the Savior lives. I know families are forever. I know that I am supposed to be here, and I'm grateful that I got to spend Christmas with the Savior's name on my heart.

Love you all!!!!! Happy new year! I can't believe I'm old enough to be alive in 2016. Like holy cow this earth has been alive for a long time and I'm on it right now....such a crazy thought...epic.

Thank you for all of your cards and notes and gifts and emails and pictures, etc. You made my Christmas.
