Well on Monday, because I didn’t leave get transferred, we did a family home evening at Sister Lilly y her husband, Thomas’s house y I taught them how to bake no-bake cookies. Well yesterday I spent a few hours making over 130 no-bake cookies for investigators y members for Christmas, so I will be giving them out to people this whole week. Because being a missionary, you just feel the Christmas love y spirit more, so these are our gifts for people here in are area the Lomas.
Well on Wednesday, Elder Nelson from the 12 called the president of our mission y told us to talk y contact everybody about A Savior is Born, so all week long we contacted everybody in the streets about it y all the members. It was great. So many people love it.
Well on Thursday we had a 6.6 earthquake, but it was kinda far away, so only like a 4.5 for us here. But still it was pretty scary. We were on the 3rd floor y we heard a sound then the whole thing started to shake. We are fine y when it was done we ran outside as fast as we could, but all was fine.
Well we had an ex-missionary come with us a couple days with our investigators. Well, investigator Ivan we taught about a budget so he can save money so he can be baptized. Well this week we worked hard teaching A Savior was Born, but none of our investigators went to church. So this week we are going to work very hard with the Chirstmas spirit y find new ones who want to go to church, because president wants us to baptize 2 in December y 2 in January, so we are going to work very hard on it.
I can’t wait to talk to my family on the 25th. Y thanks everybody for the gifts y love you give me y my family- God bless you in this time of Christmas. Y have a great Christmas. MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
LOVE ELDER VANBUSKIRK
