Week 56 - Manvel

Hey Fam!
That proposal video was awesome! I am still so excited about that!

Also, we were blessed with a huge Christmas miracle last night. Y., a young woman in the ward called us yesterday at like 6 and asked if we could come over and visit with her friend. We were like "Doooope Referral!" so we got in the car and drove up to Friendswood. Her friend was interested in talking about the church. Of course we happily obliged and answered all of the questions that she had. We also taught her a mix of the restoration and plan of salvation lessons. It was kind of all over the place, but that is because she had really good questions and those took us to different portions of the gospel of which we could bear testimony. We then talked to her about the Atonement of Jesus Christ. She had never heard of that before, so she was amazed that someone loved her enough to suffer for her and with her. (She is a 4th gen Catholic and has only ever been to mass like twice.) We asked her if she would let Christ step into her life to lift her burdens off of her shoulders by being baptized and she said YES! WOOOOO YEAH CHRISTMAS! Her name is B. and she texted us today to ask when the next time we would be able to teach her more would be. We are pretty stoked.
 So uh... Christmas in Texas is a broken thing haha It was green and 80 DEGREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEESSSS  It is December and I am trying not to scratch bug bites... WHAT THE DUMP 
But seriously, Yesterday was probably the best Christmas that I have ever had! It was weird, warm, wet(humid), and wonderful! 
I am really thankful for you all putting together such a great Christmas for me! 
Love y'all!
