12/16/13 Elder Peterson - Festival of Lights

Alright where to start? Things were real crazy this past week. We had a lot of things go on and I don't even know where to begin.

So we had our Ward Christmas party this weekend and it was a lot of fun! And it was really great to have Keith, Maria, and Marcola, and Jasmine there too! They really had a fun time and the ward was really great with helping them to feel welcome! It was really good. Jasmine is really progressing in the Gospel. We haven't been able to sit down and teach her a solid lesson yet. But it will happen. She really is feeling the fellowship of our church and it is exactly what she needs.

We are going this evening to the Festival of Lights with her and it is going to be a lot of fun. Jenny Oaks Baker is performing and Elder Wendt and I are going to try and get a picture with her. Speaking of that.

Last night Jenny Oaks Baker also performed and we went there with a recent convert Sis. Visencio and her son Ulises. While we were there guess who I saw? The Goss family! It was really neat. It was fun to talk with them shortly and see how they are doing. They are such a great family.

Alright next we had a fun appointment with a couple of former investigators the Navarro family. We were able to watch the "Finding Faith in Christ" DVD and it went well. She is wanting to start meeting with us again. We are meeting with them again this Thursday and we are going to try to get them to church this next Sunday.

So it turns out that this Christmas, some of the Elders in the mission are performing at the Visitors Center for the Festival of Lights, and I am going to be a part of it. It will be fun. Hopefully they will be able to record it so I can get a copy of it to y'all. We'll see what happens.

Well, I think that is about if for this past week. Oh and it snowed again. That's about it.

Love you all and have a wonderful week! I will talk with you again on Christmas Eve Eve.

We made this sign by a metro stop

Hanging up a tree with Elders Wendt, Owens and Cannon. We were at a member's home.
Here is my Christmas Day schedule: We have a Christmas party in the morning for the whole mission. We don't know what time exactly it will end. Then we have to head home which will take an hour to go to a family in the ward's home to eat dinner and skype. It should be roughly around 3:30 to 4:00. Then we have to go all the way back up to the temple for the performance we will be doing Christmas night. (I love coordinating schedules to talk to my missionaries!!) Can't wait until Christmas!!
