This weeks email will be a bit non-entertaining and not long at all!
Haha This week was an elder in our wards birthday! And so today has
been a series of cake and cookie making and shopping! So forgive me
for this!

This week the biggest miracle of all was Alison. She is straight up
one of the most amazing people that I have ever met and she is
completely inspiring. This week we were on exchange with the sister
training leaders, and I was able to be with Sister Taylor, my MTC
companion from back in the day! And so it was a good day! And we went
to try some less active members and when we got there..this woman
opened the door..and I knew it wasn't the people that I was looking
for... So we told her who we were and she started talking with us and
she has so many questions about religion and God and told her some of
her heart aches and trials. The gospel was her solution. We knew it
and the coolest part, was she did too :) This week we saw her 3 times
and the lessons were amazing and she was excited. She even came to
stake conference this week!

This week at stake conference, and Alison even came to that! It is
amazing to see the great peace that someone can find just by learning
about the gospel. And in one of our lessons with her, we invited her
to be baptized in January. She said that March sounds more do able to
her so we agreed, wishing that it wasn't quite so far away. But at
stake conference we felt impressed to have her talk to our mission
president who was there. IT was amazing because he asked her when she
was getting baptized and then told her that she needed to get baptized
sooner. It was soo cool! :) And she felt the spirit in such away that
she agreed and realized that she too wanted that experience sooner! I
love being a missionary and seeing the light that the gospel gives
people who don't have any sign of hope.

This holiday season, I mentioned last week, that the church put out a
video about the birth of our savior, #ASaviorIsBorn. That video is
amazing. This week we have had the chance to play it to others and
they have just lit up at the message of our savior that is being
presented to them. It is amazing to see what the Savior has done for
so many of us and how he has touched our lives individually.

SHOUT OUT  to Jordan! Thank you so much for your letter! I really
appreciate it!!

Have a great week y'all! I love and miss you! And hope that you are
feeling the special spirit of this holiday season! :)
