Transfer 6 . . . . Area 2 Companion 4

15th December  2015

Today I said Goodbye to My Second Companion Elder Gustafsson from Iceland. Who leaves at 9pm tonight to go to Denmark.

Its amazing how time flies.
This last week has been excellently superb(I am trying to cut down the amount of times I say awesome) it has been great being able to go out with some of the Young Men, and also to go and be with some of the amazing members of this ward.

(No offence but they are amazing) Don't worry you are all amazing

This transfer is going to be full of carolling!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Can't wait, although I may need to teach my companion how to sing....

It will sound egh, good enough I guess.

Tis the Season to be Jolly And Decorate the Halls with Holly (No idea what that is....)  And go and make of ourselves a Folly.

Which is exactly what I plan to do with my Santa and Reindeer selfie tie. ( Ill take a selfie with it and send it!)

Luke 2:11

7th December  2015

For unto YOU was born this day, in the City of David a Saviour which is Christ the Lord.

Unto Each and every one of us over 2000 years ago was born a babe, wrapped in swaddling clothes, that would fulfil a divine mission which he was fore ordained to do. He would learn and grow much like all of us and come to know His Heavenly Father, and it is given to each and every one of us to Discover Why, He is our own personal Saviour.

This week I have shared this christmas message so many times, and I know each time I share it that I feel the Holy Ghost telling me that it is undeniably true, and it deepens my understanding every day that I do this about His divine role in my life and helps me see the importance of coming unto him, and denying myself of all ungodliness so that his grace be manifest in my life and help me overcome my personal weaknesses, and I know there are so many that it isn't even funny.

I have loved these last few days of Christmas and I cannot wait for the next 24 days to remember this glorious time of the year and to Remember Him

T'is the Season

30th November  2015

Picture a stable in Judea, Picture a Sacred Silent Night, And can you hear, The angels near, And see the star so bright?

My Favourite time of the year starts tomorrow and what a great opening we have with a baptism on Wednesday. This is a time for miracles and love, and a time for peace from the world around.

One of my goals is to as soon as this transfer has ended me and my companion (whoever it is) are going to go out carolling :D Sorry for him if he has other plans. But definitely going to work with the ward to set up some carolling at members and investigators alike. And to be honest, I am just going to do it for a whole day while knocking on peoples doors.... Can't wait.

Also excited for the prospect of seeing a lot more miracles of baptism or at least being able to help others to commit themselves to be more like our Saviour
