Well this week has been exciting as ever! To start off, we have gotten some warm winds so it hasn't been too cold out here!!! Yay!! It might actually get into the positive degrees this week so I am super excited haha well this week is Christmas so we have all sorts of fun things planned. It has been so cool being able to share messages about Christ because people seem to be a lot more receptive this time of year. We have picked up a lot of new investigators and we are working as hard as we possibly can to teach them the things that they need. It has been so great getting to know all sorts of people. We had a branch Christmas party on Saturday and we brought a family and they brought their extended family who was in town from Columbia! I have learned so much about different cultures and countries around the world! Especially the food haha If you think all Latino food is the same... well you're wrong. Every country has different food but it is all good. 

We had exchanges on Wednesday with week so I was with another sister for a day which switched things up but was super fun! We all live together so it wasn't much of an exchange but it was still super fun. We have been teaching a lot of families and sharing the "Light the World" video with everyone! It is seriously the best and everyone just loves it! It's been so good to prepare for Christmas by really focusing on the savior. Christmas on the mission is going to be the best! Plus we already have a bunch of dinners set up for Christmas eve and Christmas day! Can't wait!

Every day gets better and better and I love it out here in Canada! There is nowhere else I would rather be and nothing else I would rather be doing! The church is true! Hope everyone has a Merry Christmas!!! Love you all!
