Merry Christmas!

What did Santa get you for Christmas? I got a self heating jacket, fuzzy warm PJs and Davids tea! (herbal tea yum) the best. We went to families houses all Christmas eve and day. We shared the Christmas story from the Book of Mormon with Nephi and angels telling the story!

And behold, he shall be born of Mary, at Jerusalem which is the land of our forefathers, she being a virgin, a precious and chosen vessel, who shall be overshadowed and conceive by the power of the Holy Ghost, and bring forth a son, yea, even the Son of God.  - Alma 7:10
Lift up your head and be of good cheer; for behold, the time is at hand, and on this night shall the sign be given, and on the morrow come I into the world, to show unto the world that I will fulfill all that which I have caused to be spoken by the mouth of my holy prophets. - 3 Nephi 1:13

 It is awesome the spirit comes so quickly because it is Christ himself speaking hrs before he was born in a manger.

Some funny experiences happened while tracting this week so i decided to draw them out.....

A man unhappily answered his door and opening it a crack he said, "cant you see?!" while gesturing up. We were so confused. He continued to gesture up and than said, "just above the door, you see it right?" We finally were able to see a tiny metal fish hung just over his door. We said "oh the fish?" "YES, I'm Lutherine" followed by a large door slam. What is that about? We laughed so hard.

Here's a cool picture (literally and figuratively of us tracting as well..

WE DID IT!!! The Wisconsin Milwaukee Mission reached 300 Baptisms for 2013! This is very great and memorable time for the mission. This is a goal that we have been striving for, for a long time! Through faith and diligence!

 "And now, i ask, what great blessings has he bestowed upon us? Can ye tell? Behold i answer for you; for our brethren [and sisters], the [Wisconsinites], were in darkness, yea, even in the darkest [coldest] abyss, but behold the marvelous light of God! And this is the blessing which hath been bestowed upon us, that we have been made instruments in the hands of God to bring about this great work. Behold, [300] of them do rejoice, and have been brought into the fold of god." Alma 26:2-5 

Love you all family! Thanks for all the cards and presents that were sent (from fam and friedns) LOVE LOVE LOVE YOU ALL
