So last week was a pretty awesome week! These members in our ward have a dental practice and they entered into a parade and had their own float to advertise but she wanted us to come along and hand out toothbrushes and what not too but we ended up handing out the HE IS THE GIFT cards so we handed out a TON and talked to TONS of people it was so awesome!!!! The parade was cool too haha Then they took us out to dinner after and we told them that we are supposed to be caroling every night and they said they would come with us. So last night they had an FHE Christmas gift exchange thing and had a few families over and everyone came caroling with us after. We went to their next door neighbor’s house and all the kids were super excited so they all ran there and knocked on his door and rang his doorbell a million times which I’m sure did not make the older man happy AT ALL but it was amazing to see his countenance change as we all started singing. The spirit of Christmas is so amazing!!!! So we did a few other houses and had lots of fun :) We might have found an awesome family too! We had about a half hour before we had dinner so we decided to walk around the members neighborhood which is a ways out and we never go out there so we thought it was a good idea. We started talking to this really humble man who was spraying down his sweet dirt bikes. We talked about the HE IS THE GIFT video and he was excited to show his wife. We noticed they had a picture of Christ in their garage and asked him if he was pretty religious and he said not as much as he wanted to be and then we talked about his family and he has 3 kids and we bore sincere testimony that families can be together forever and he started to tear up!!! We couldn’t get a return appointment with him but he wants to meet with us. He said he needed to talk with his wife first so we’re gonna go back over and see what’s happened since then. We’re praying to start teaching them!!! We have zone conference tomorrow so excited about that. Its gonna be a good week! Love you all!
