Grandma and Grandpa Forsey Thank you so much for the Christmas money!! I will take a picture of what you bought me and send you it :D Love you Guys!
Aunt Loli and Uncle Tommy Thank you Thank you for the money (that mom deposited!) and the package! I am so excited to open it on Wednesday! You have no idea how much it means to me! Love you guys!!
Well Last Monday we had a Sister Shopping day. It was really fun. It was nice to just go and have some fun finding some clothes. What a fun Christmas activity!
Tuesday we had interviews with President Berry! He talked a lot about Internet Proselyting which our mission will be starting in January. So We are all pretty excited about that. What is Internet Proselyting? You will have to wait to hear about it until AFTER Christmas! ha ha
We went and did some service and then had dinner with a Part member less active family. It was an awesome lesson. The spirit was so strong. Wednesday we went to a Christmas Party at Sis. Phillip's house. It was so much fun and so cool because she invited 5 non-members who we were able to meet and talk to. And let me tell you Older ladies are hilarious!! They are so much fun! we had a blast.
Thursday we did more service and went and talked to a few referrals. That night we went with Sis. Casablanca and delivered some Cookies to Less Actives in the Ward. While we were delivering Sis. Casablanca was chatting with my mom via text message and she also sent her a couple of pictures of us in the car with her. Then my mom sent her a picture of the Becks and Morgs as my mom was at their home helping Becky do some Christmas wrapping and stuff. Becky just had a knee replacement. It was a fun night- complete with seeing a pic of Becky and Kay!!
Friday we went knocking and we went to see an inactive and his step mom answered and she yelled at us for like 20 min. It was kind of ridiculous. She was really mad at the church because we keep coming to her house. And she was threatening to sue for harassment. But whatever, she will have to talk with our bishop and he can hopefully simmer her down. Not a fun Christmas experience.
We had our Mission Christmas Devotional on Friday night. It was filled with musical numbers and a BIG CHRISTMAS MIRACLE! I'm gonna save it for the skype sesh with the fam. Mom- I'll let you write a little note telling everyone what we talked about haha.
Saturday we saw these two guys moving and we asked if we could help and they were like serious? They couldn't believe that we just wanted to help. It was cool because we got to teach them all about the restoration and Plan of salvation. Sunday we had a lot of meetings. In Ward council the RS/YW/Primary Presidents all gave us these bags filled with gifts and treats and cards from the kids of the ward. It was so sweet! I love the Lake Mary Ward they are awesome! I am so blessed to have the chance to serve here.
I sang in Sacrament and It went pretty well. The Bishop was like "She sings???? Why hasn't she sung before??" Haha It was a great meeting. I am so grateful for my talent and my opportunities to share it. Last Night at Dinner we watched Mr. Kruger's Christmas. It was a cute video if you haven't seen it, See it. And check out "The Reason Behind Christmas on mormonchannel.org it's really good. oh and Last night we visited this member who had a rotating Christmas tree it was soooo cool!
This week was a wonderful one I am so grateful for this chance to fully serve the Lord this Christmas season and I am so grateful for all my family and friends who love and support me. That is what Christmas is truly about. Spending time with family and serving the Lord and those around us. Thank you so much!
Merry Christmas everyone! Love, Sister Forsey
