Merry Christmas!

Dear Family and Friends,
   I want you to all know that: I LOVE YOU ALL( that is the most important from the e-mail) 
   Wow, This past week has been super great! We have been using the program from the prophet named ¨He is the Gift¨ by visiting the members and inviting them to share it! It has helped us find a lot of people and we are seeing a ton of miracles! This is truly the work of the Lord. Saddly the faily diaz did not got o church... but another woman went to church named Monica and we are helping heer to be baptized for the 21st. ALso we are working with a ember to baptize one of her friends( it is the family that tried to kiss my companion on the cheek that i talked about last week.) and they could not go to chruch last week but they have already started to read the book of mormon and have plans to go to church this weekend! they are so great. the investigator sent a message to the member that said ¨I lvoe learning about the churhc from the missionaries!¨ we are going to visit them tomorrow at 6:30 to see if they have read and PRAYED about the truthfulness of the book of mormon: 
   THis week I have thought a lot about the birth of Christ and how importnat it really is (Merry Christmas!!!). THe part in Lucas 2 realy helps me to understand how important the birth of the saviour really is: 
And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in manger; because there was no room for them in the inn. And there were in the same country  shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory ofthe Lord shone round about them: and they were sore  afraid.10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, bring you good tidings of great joywhich shall be to all people.11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David Saviour,which  is Christ the Lord.
HE has saved us and I know it is true. He is the Gift of this Christmas. 
I love the mission and this week we have worked super hard to be able to get everyone to know about Christ. This week we did a bunch of divisions. Still my companion and I are dooing great and I hope everyone shares the gift of this christmas which is our savior Jesus Christ! Please think and keep thinking Who can I serve today to help them come closer to Christ? 
Don´t forget about the most important: Les amo!
Have a great week!

MY great parents!
you have to talk about the holy ghost and baptism, i think the most importnat in these short talks before the baptism is talk to the people who are going to be baptized and help them to feel how specal it is( help them to feel the spirit of the occasion, how a baptism and the holy ghost now I can have the eternal life!!)  or whatever helps them get excited. and to use an example. I hope you enjoy your talk!! the most important is that you enjoy the moment that you have to teach to these kids! In Chapter 31 and 32 from nephi it talks a lot about the importance of baptism and  confirmation. Mom, you have a gift while you share your testimony that helps the spirit feel the room. As you enjoy the moment the kids will understand. 

You are going to talk about testimony and conversion and i don´t think their is a better example than you to talk about these things. I think as you share your personal testimony from your heart and as you prepare with prayer the spirit will help the people to undersatnd what they need to learn and how important it is for you to be part of the church of Jesus Christ. 

These are just suggestions but i hope they help you, I really love you all so much and I hope you have a great day and a great week, as we prepare for this Christmas we must Share that He is the Gift!
