December 22, 2014

This last week was good. On Tuesday we volunteered at a local church and helped out with their homeless outreach project. As companion ships we would get assigned to a bum and then go around with them to all the booths they wanted to and be there friend. At first they had a bunch of Spanish people who needed help so I went with a Spanish elder (Johnson) and we helped a lady.. I didn't understand too much, but my Spanish is actually coming along, mas a menos. Then we helped an English speaking lady who has no family and never has met her parents she was in her 20's. Sad story but we helped her out too, got a haircut, tested for aids, free Obama phone, ID, flu shot, and a bunch of other stuff, it was pretty fun! We hung Sister Fussell’s Christmas lights for her. Finally were able to meet with Nicole again she's feeling a little better. Still didn't come to church... But hopefully soon or we will drop her. She knows she needs to be there but something always gets in the way. We didn't meet with Kyle he had an emergency dentist thing come up, but he was at church and that much is good. We had our Christmas temple trip this week. It was great, I was able to take a name all the way thru, we went early and did baptisms, confirmations and everything else. It was really cool and fun to baptize each other. Sadly it took a lot of precious time to do it all. But it was temple work. We had a really good lesson with Inez about Alma 32, sadly she is going to move. We saw blain and he is doing well on his track to the temple. Same with the Deleons. We had Zone Training Meeting one day, took some elders to the doctor and tried to weekly plan, busy but not teaching wise busy. We found a family! We had a lesson Thursday night and watched he is the gift, it was really good! They are part Mexican so they might have Spanish elders teach but whatever is best for them is good. Saturday I went to another area, the Eldorado ward, it was fun with Elder Cox. Got to ride bikes. I am about out of time but our week was good! Luke 2 11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. 12 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, 14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men. Don't forget about baby Jesus this Christmas! See you soon Love, Elder Stevenson
