Not a lot has happened since Wednesday! I went on my first exchanges away from Halls Head on Friday, I went to Kwinana about 50 Ks North with one of the Sister Training Leaders, Sister Forte, from Hong Kong. She is really on to it. We taught so many lessons! It is really hot in Kwinana though I love Mandurah, I hope I can stay here for awhile!
On Sunday we had a ward choir performance, which we just happen to be part of. Haha yes I am singing, they asked us to change parts on Sunday I think because we were ruining the song! haha!
Oh about the Maggots... so you know how our flat had rats, and then the roof broke, and then we had mice, well all those problems were fixed, except for the mold that stuff will not go away... But the other day we come home, and there are no joke these ugly little white wormy maggots all over our ceiling. Maggots... how disgusting is that. Turns out we have pantry fly/moth things and now they are gone but seriously, We deep cleaned the flat last week so we have no idea how this is happening! Haha our flat is cursed.
I hope you are all having a good time this Christmas season. I hope that if you haven't been to Christmas.mormon.org yet you will check it out! The video #asaviorisborn is so amazing! and The videos about why we need a savior are so good! check them out! We also love the music videos they have for the first 13 days of Christmas! If you haven't seen The Prayer with David Archelauta yet check it out! It is amazing. We also really like Alex Boye's Little Drummer Boy! Check them out!
I'm so grateful for this Christmas time, and the chance we have to really focus on the birth of Jesus Christ! I love and the peace I feel when reading the Christmas Story, I invite you all to take 5 minutes to watch this video this week https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xCxV9CbC180 Good Tidings of Great Joy: The Birth of Jesus Christ, listen to the first presidency share their testimonies of the Savior.
