Another great week in the lovely land of Victoria, BC. I just love this place so much/ It has been so warm all week. No rain, just blue sky's. This week has been a crazy one with exchanges and helping out other sisters. Sister Dexter and I are co district leaders? Yea its weird. But we are over 3 sets of sisters and 1 senior couple. We are out and about with other sister often. Its fun because then its like I get to serve in lots of other areas all over Victoria.
This week we had a wonderful dinner with Ruby and another recent convert over at a members home. It was so great. We read the bible story of Christ's birth. Ruby had never read it before (her last church the members weren't allowed to read scriptures..) Then we watched the video He is the Gift.(http://www.mormon.org/christmas) Watch it. Its the bomb! It was a wonderful time we all had together. The ward is just so welcoming to Ruby and the other recent converts. its such a blessing! They all just love her and invite her to help with there Christmas decorating. She has never celebrated before. So anytime we see a Christmas tree or anything she just loves to take pictures.
I love being a missionary around the Christmas season and I have been blessed to do it twice. the sprit is so alive and in the air. Not much happened this week. We have been talking to a lot of people on the streets and at their houses. They are all getting ready for the season. I love it so much! It also makes it so much easier for us to talk to them because we just start off with " Hey we are missionaries and we are talking to people about Christmas, do you believe in Christ?" Its the best! Just picture me saying that a lot!
I love you all and I hope you have an amazing week!!!!!!!!!!!
