Querida familia!!!

I love you guys:D haha. Christmas is always an awesome time of the year to remember Christ as our savior and redeemer that shed his blood so that we might be saved an return to the kingdom of God. Is there any other greater sacrifice than that? Sometimes I feel like we make a big deal out of things that aren't important during this Christmas season, but remember what is important. We may not be celebrating the birth of Christ because we know that it didn't happen in this time of the year due to the description of the weather in the bible and to modern day revelation, but we join with the world remembering Christ in these times. Its called Christ/Más or more Christ. How can you let Christ come into your life and to the life of your family? If you need help and don't know what to do, there is always a simple answer, pray unto the Lord asking is guidance and then look for what you can do and then the Lord will guide you to what you need to do through feelings in your heart. That is quite simply the secret to success in this life! It is called humility and revelation. Those 2 principle will guide us through our lives as we live and apply them in our lives. 

Also this week my new companion arrived!!! Elder Chun! My first Polynesian companion. He's from Hawaii and has lived in Window Rock, Arizona and Utah for the last few years. He's turning 19 the 26th of December and has 7 months in the mission. He is still having a hard time with Spanish but he's learning little by little. I've seen that he is a very humble man. He loves the Lord and wants to serve him. Also fun fact for ya.... his full name is Trustin Akua Keikikuikawamaikeakua Yick Nin Chun. It means trust in the Lord and the second part is special child of God. Super cool!!! I'm gonna struggle memorizing it but I'm gonna do it haha. 

Life is good. We baptized this week. We are working to find other future baptisms but all is well!!!! Can't wait for Christmas so we can talk!!!!

I love you all!!!!
