We went Christmas caroling with a family in the ward, and we had a magnificent time. Many of the people we caroled to were so appreciative of the added joy this season. One of them was an older woman whose husband passed away last December and was having a difficult Christmas season this year with out him, one was a woman who was by herself this Christmas season, and one was a father who asked us to keep singing and ran upstairs to grab his two kids from out of the bathtub to listen to us sing about our Savior’s birth.
We were able to do so much service this week–helping an older woman living by herself decorate her Christmas tree, help a member pack up to move, serve food at the Salvation Army Christmas Day to the homeless, Christmas caroling, and little acts of service along the way. Life is good when you’re in the service of your fellowbeings.
As a Christmas miracle, M (who a few weeks ago decided she didn’t want to be baptized and didn’t want anything to do with the church) has prayed and received an answer that she should be baptized! She is back on track to be baptized into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints!
I love you all, and I wish you a happy and safe new year!
