Remember that even though I don´t reply to everything you guys write me, I am still glad to hear it, and appreciate the news and your love! Dear Delaney, don´t get down about basketball, there will be other things for you to excel at, and you definitely are way cooler than I am for trying. I never tried ANYTHING, and I remained pretty lame through my teen years because of it. I am only very recently in my life getting over this fear of failure, and not trying things. It really holds you back. I´m proud of you, and love you very much!
For Christmas we´ve done a some nice little things. At zone conference all the zones had little skits and song presentations. My zone was adorable, and clearly the best (just kidding, BE THOU HUMBLE). I´m including a photo. I am the special star in the bright orange sheet. We also participated in the stake Christmas devotional in the ward choir, and our pieces were pretty epic. The devotional included video and some testimonies of the Savior, they did a good job, the Spirit was present. One of the videos is ¨He is the Gift¨ from Mormon Channel. I´m sure you´ve already seen it, but if not, go watch it and share it on Facebook. My comp and I bought Christmas lights, and put them on our balcony, so that is super cheery!
I´ve had lots of opportunities to reflect on the Atonement, and learn how to really apply it. Maybe I said this last week, but it´s an ongoing process :) We´ve been very blessed in meeting some investigators who are actually progressing, and this is very exciting. Humbling too, because they really are gifts from the Lord. It has very little to do with my (our) ability, and a lot to do with my obedience and humility.
Love you all, and till Christmas Eve!
P.S. Hna Cornelison: Elder Neeley told me that he thinks Kateycha has a Francine voice , but in Spanish. I was like, O My Goodness, yes, I was just thinking she looks like Francine!¨ hee, hee, hee...
