Merry Christmas

Hi family,

I have to share this cool experience with you.  We were at the Lougheed town center talking to people just after Christmas and there was this lady carrying groceries.  I said hello to her and she didn't say anything just looked kind of mad and super frustrated.  As we started to pass by she put down her groceries and said I have been praying for people from a church to come talk to me.  She told us her parents died two years ago and she has been really depressed and didn't know what to do.  We talked to her about the plan of salvation, Jesus Christ, and all the other good stuff about our church.  I prayed with her and she started crying.  After we got done she said my whole body feels so good what is it that is making me feeling like this.  She said I want you guys to come visit and teach me.   Unfortunately we found out she lives in Burnaby so Elder Hall (my missionary buddy from Spanish Fork) and his companion get to teach her.  She was so excited and said I want to hug you boys right now, I said sorry you can't do that. :) It is honestly a miracle and all because we said hello.  By small and simple things shall great things come to pass!

It was so great talking to everyone at Christmas.  I love you guys.  I love my mission and serving the Lord.  Have a great week.
