"Without ChrisT there would be no ChrisTmas, and without ChrisT there can be no fulness of joy."
-Ezra Taft Benson
Just wanted to make sure the capital T' was emphasized and never forget because of Him we live.
This past week has been really productive with working with our Relief Society and planning out our Christmas party. With the week of my comp still recovering and being sick somewhat we still were able to push through it. This past Saturday we had our Christmas party. I must say being in a two man city and a small branch there is alot to think about and plan out. But I am happy we have the strong headed women who love to take lead and help out big time. From shopping, decorating, planning, inviting, and doing activities it was all worth it in the end. It was a good stress for me but happy we were able to pull it off as a branch. Funny when the members here were thinking only 5 or 10 would show up to our activity. You know it just gives me push and trust in the Lord to go all out. I like the feeling of having more than expected amount of people showing up to an activity. We were lucky enough to have 37 people total show up more of which were our students and investigators. It was nice to see our members talk with them and build up a relationship towards them. It allowed me and my comp handle other things going on. My comp delivered a great spiritual message on the meaning of Christmas and how we should never lose its true meaning. We watched Christmas musical from the tabernacle choir and sang Silent Night' all together...fail. lol. Ate alot of sarmale, smantana, ciorba, salata de beouf, and PAINE. Look it up if don't know its really good. Leftovers consist of SARMALE for days. Happy its done no more dealing with little kids activity and my comp doesn't have to listen to me telling him to DO this and DO that. But we learned from it and happy that our members were able to how much of a success it was. Thats' about it for me and excited to Skype the family next week. Sorry don't have much but heading out to Zone Conference in a few hours.
