Hello family and friends!!! :D Frankly, I remember about nothing from what happened this week... Seriously, I am racking my brains and I've got nothing.
Oh yeah! We had a Christmas party on Friday! That was kind of cool! Natalie came to that and to church, with her mom (who hasn't come in a very long time), so I was happy :) She should be getting baptized in the beginning of January, from the sound of things.
We didn't teach too many other people. It is hard to get lessons in around the Holidays. We DID help some random people move some stuff out of their apartment! Which was amazing, because we always offer to help people with stuff, but they always say no for whatever reason. They also said we could come back and share our message, so that was exciting!
Thought of the week: You can choose. Elder Kearon said that SO many times: you can choose to *insert phrase here*. You can choose to be happy. You can choose to live the Gospel. You can choose to follow the Spirit. The second you realize that YOU, you personally, can CHOOSE to do and be whatever and whoever you want to do or be, your life will change!!! Why? Because you decided it would. Now that comes from faith and hope and patience and love and determination and perseverance. But in the end, it is as simple as this: What will you choose to do? Who will you choose to be?
Choose to come unto Christ and be perfected in Him. Specifically ask for His help to change. He will change you. He CAN change you. Because He performed the Atonement. And he understands exactly your barriers and obstacles and how you can overcome them.
"Repentance is new strength." Repentance IS change.
I love you all! CHOOSE to have a great week!
