Talofa! Merry Christmas!
We had the best miracles ever this week!
#1. So Alysha, this girl we were teaching ages ago who kind of fell of the face of the planet for a while starting coming back to church a few weeks ago, yesterday after church she came up to us and casually set her own baptisimal date! Yay!
#2. So last Sunday this couple came to church James, Ida and their 5 month old baby Thea, it was a crazy day at church and we wouldn't have even met them if not for one of the members of the stake presdidency President Johnson, who invitied them to church (James works for him) came and grabbed us and introduced us to them! James told us that Ida was a stay at home mom so we could go visit her whenever! so we went this week and they are Golden! They are from mainland China so they have basically no concept of God! But they told us they want to keep learning and come to church every sunday! They are so cute! They even came to the ward Christmas Party on Saturday! We are fighting over them with the Elders though, because they actually live in the Elders area, but because we were the first to meet them and Ida is usually the only one home, it just makes sense that we would teach them. We will see how it goes! But they are so wonderful!
Have so much fun this Christmas, enjoy the snow!
We are so blessed here in Halls Head! I'm so grateful for the opportunity to serve here! I hope you all have a wonderful wonderful Christ centred Christmas! I love you all!
Love, Sister Penrod
