Christmas in the mission field. Definately one i will never forget.
This week was a great week. Just to start off i had the funniest dream the other night. I was dreaming that we were talking to someone and telling them about the Book of Mormon and i had found in there that it talked about tumbling. and i was telling them how great it was because it even talked about tumbling. Well i woke up from that dream laughing! But it is true you can apply the Book of Mormon to everything in life even if it doesnt directly talk about it.Then we were at a members house for dinner last night and we were talking about the activities that we like to do and the mom told us that her little boy liked to do gymnastics but he was the only buy doing it with a bunch of girls. haha so i looked at the little boy and said "sometimes boys make the best gymasts" and the dad said and they get all the girls and the little boy threw his hands in the air and yelled "YES"... this little boy is only 8 years old. but we all got a good laugh out of that one. It was so cute.

We had an awesome experience on Christmas eve. We went caroling with one of the members and her family. We went to this HUGE house. and When i say huge it is like your stereotypical mansion. The people were so nice and invited us right in. Their home was beautiful. So on Saturday sister Elmer and i decided to go back and talk to them about the gospel. So we went back and told him that we were there the other night. He went on to explain that us coming caroling had made his night. He said his wife had been sick and they had to stay home for the evening and he had been praying that something would liven it up a bit then we knocked on the door. We had a great time talking and he said that he was really interested in what we believed. So we set up a time to come back and keep teaching him. It was awesome. He was so friendly!
Then yesterday we had a miracle happen. We were trying so hard to get people to church this week. And a whole bunch bummed out on us at the last minute. So we were at church and a less active shows up and brings one of his friends with him. So after sunday school we go and talk to him and his friend and his friend agreed to let us come over and teach him because he had a lot of questions. It was awesome and totally by the grace of God!
I love my mission and all the things i am learning. I still feel like the greatest lesson that is a constant lesson that i am learning is to trust in God. But i love my Heavenly Father and Savior! I love you all so very much and pray for you always!!! have a great week!!Love your sister Davis :)
