Christmas on the Mission, Round 1

Christmas! Merry Christmas! Happy New Year, make all those new year resolutions and then forget about them!...

All is well in Farsi land. The streets have never been colder and our apartment never any warmer. I should be a poet. We were definitely taken care of this Christmas, so many wonderful families who took us in. We also were able to see almost all the Persian members here in the area this week, which was very cool :) I fall in love with the people and the culture more and more everyday.

We are on the search for a second lesson with someone at the moment. We have had quite a few first lessons with people, some we even extended a baptismal invitation too, but we seem to be struggling with getting a second lesson with anyone. It may be the holiday season, we hope it is. We are very excited to hit the new year off though and get some solid work happening :) 
Christmas Devotional

Thought for the week: Goals. They are awesome! As cheesy as the new year resolution thing is, set some goals! They can be simple! For example, I set some goals yesterday to do little things to help me either feel the Spirit, be more obedient, or simple just be better than the week before. It could be as simple as writing down your ponderize scripture this week (How well is that going for everyone who was on a hype after conference?), or it could be to be out the door ready to work 5 minutes earlier, or to catch up on a journal, read one more conference talk, do a few pull-ups, eat better, jump higher, write down realistic new year goals, what ever else makes you a better version of you. Don't try to be someone else. The Lord loves you and will help you to become the person He wants you to be. :) Let Him. 

Have an awesome week! Happy Holidays! Thanks so much for everything! :)
