We had the funnest activity for Christmas in our little one room church house! It was awesome and we had a lot of investigators there and they loved it! Christmas is such a special time of year.
Elder Griffen and I had a companionship study the other days just thinking about the questions, "What is the price to pay to baptize here in San Vicente?" We were just looking for revelation. We received a lot of answers and we are changing a lot of things and seeing great results but the biggest thing that we said was that we are not going to say a single negative thing. Not one negative word is going to come out of our mouth. We are not going to let negativity enter. We have seen a huge difference by doing this! We are not negative people, I would consider us really positive thinkers but just by getting rid of negative thoughts and comments we are seeing miracles! We are pushing ourselves harder than ever and we are enjoying every second of the mission!
Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad! 25 years! Happy Anniversary Grandpa and Grandma Allred! 50 years! That's incredible! The family is such a huge part in the Plan of Salvation! God sent us here in families for a reason and I truly believe that we all chose what family we are to be a part of before this life. Without the family God's great plan would be frustrated. What a great blessing to be here testifying and teaching these people about how their perfectly imperfect families can be together forever. Elder Griffen and I are basically only focusing on families right now so I have put a lot of thought into the importance of the family. The family is the divine Godly organization where God has placed us so that everything else in His gospel can be put into practice. The best place to live the Gospel of Jesus Christ is in the home. Elder Griffen and I are seeing big changes that these families have been making by putting the Gospel into play in their home. There is no greater feeling! All we need to do now is baptize them! :)
