So, today I sent off a Christmas package. Hopefully it will get there safely and such. Don't open the presents until Christmas, okay?! But you can do what you want with the food.
We've been getting a ton of rain lately. It's pretty crazy! We're soaking wet and cold a lot of the time-- so it's good we've been getting so many appointments lately that we are spending most of our time inside...
This week we had a really awesome experience going finding. We haven’t knocked doors much since Zr. Fritz and I have been together, but one day we felt like we should. We ended up knocking on a door of a young woman who has a terminal illness. She’s been thinking a lot about whether or not there is a God and what will happen after death. We talked with her and the spirit was amazingly strong. It was neat to know that you were in the right place at the right time and that you could bring someone some peace about things going on in their life.
Things with Kim and Amy are going well. They take things at their pace. Amy now believes in Christ, which is AMAZING! But this week as we talked with her about baptism, she said she can't get baptized because her family already considers her the black sheep, and with Chinese family who don't even know who Christ is, she is afraid they will disown her. Please pray that her family's heart will be softened.
Well, I've gotta get running. One thing I'd like to leave you with is how important the family is. We've been talking about eternal families and such in Sunday School lately, and it's really made me appreciative for everything you have done. I love you all so much and am grateful that through the priesthood that has been restored to the earth, we really can be together forever.
