It's getting closer to that time of year! People here in the Philippines love Christmas, and it's super exciting! This past week went by fast. We found a ton of new people, many of them aren't quite as excited as we are but they will be soon! We were teaching this one family on Friday, and they were super excited when we taught them the Restoration, and were excited to come to church, but they didn't make it that far. They are a young family so it must've been some kid troubles or something. Anyways, the Spirit was super strong that lesson, and I can't wait to go back there on Tuesday.
On Sunday, we had the Primary program, and my companion can play a little piano, but not much, but the Primary President still asked him to play two songs on Saturday night, and he was super nervous. So when Sunday came around, he told me he said a quick prayer before he played to either bless his hands, our our ears. We were talking after, and it sounds like He blessed our ears, because it actually didn't sound to bad.
So the lessons learned this week are that there is a plan for everything, because if certain things did not happen we would not have found that family, and God answers prayers, though sometimes not the way we expect it to.
I hope you all have a great week, and remember that in the spirit of Christmas, we remember the best gift of all, Jesus Christ. Just take a minute and ponder on what His life means to us, and what we can do because of Him.
Until next week,
