Week #70 - December 29th, 2015

Hello Family and Friends!
Sister Sughroue & Sister Wiedmann
@ the Schmidt's for dinner
  I can't believe 2015 is coming to an end. This is definitely a special year for me as it was all spent serving the Lord and witnessing many miracles! I am very excited to see what 2016 has to hold as well. Looking forward with faith, hope and trust in Gods plan.  I hope you all had an amazing Christmas! We sure did! Sister Weidmann and I wore out Christmas light necklaces that light up and flash, we got lots of compliments! (thanks mom!) haha One of my favorite parts of Christmas is testifying to the crowds at the Christus. We pack people up there and and play the narration for them and then to get share our testimony of the Savior. Such a special experience to testify of the Savior, to so many at Christmas time, because he is the reason for it all! We decided to try something new and have little kids come up at the beginning and share what they love about Christmas.... as you can imagine we got a wide range of responses... some funny and but most were so sweet, simple and sincere. Children are so precious... no wonder Christ invites us to become like them.
    We had Christmas Dinner on Wednesday at the Schmidt family, they live in a beautiful
So many 1st's for my foreign
sisters! Gingerbread houses!
home up in the mountains and are from Germany. They got us Swiss and German chocolate, and loved talking with Sister Weidmann. We even helped them decorate the tree! Christmas Eve was a normal day of work, and when we came home we decided to get in the Christmas spirit and decorate a Ginger bread house! Since I am the only American in the apartment, every one else were 1st timers and had a blast. We woke up Christmas morning, made a yummy breakfast Got to skype!!! (The best Christmas gift ever) Then we had a Mission Christmas devotional consisting of many musical numbers in different languages and narration, it was fun to participate and sing carol of the bells in a flash mob kind of way!
Christmas morning!
Miracle of the week! We found a family of 4! We took a 999 tour (which means drop what ever you are doing and go because they have been waiting forever....) so we ran up to take it, and met the sweetest indian family. They are hindu but the wife was raised Christian and after the tour the husband basically signed the whole family up learn more and was so interested!!! 

   Sister Poulsen and President only have a couple of weeks left :( so sad!!! They don't want to leave either... tried convincing them to extend until my mission ends hahaha. We have spent lots of time this week in meetings and preparing trainings
Sister Beguette &
Sister Sughroue

to help the sisters give effective tours and use the inspiring history here! Especially in the Beehive house! Our history is who we are, and explains all of our beliefs.... they go hand and hand. I remember when I got my call I was scared because I knew little church history.... but I am grateful for the opportunity to become so familiar, it has strengthened by testimony!
