2nd Christmas in the field


This week has been wonderful! What a joyous time of year. Christmas we great and we were still able to keep our area moving at full speed. On Christmas Eve, the University elders (Elders Dunn, DeCow, Smith, and myself) went over to the Wade's home to spend the evening with them. We had a wonderful dinner and ended the evening with watching the polar express! It's great being a missionary because you pick out all the gospel references while watching movies (i.e. Polar Express teaches great lessons on faith).

On Christmas morning, Elder Dunn and I went to the homeless shelter to do a couple hours of service. We helped in the kitchen with a Jewish church group (they were volunteering cause they don't celebrate Christmas so they relieved the other volunteers so they could go celebrate). It was so fun to see the great Christmas dinner served to them and some of the volunteers were playing Christmas songs on various instruments. It was a memory that I will cherish for years to come. 

Then later that day we got to talk to our families (awesome!) then in the evening we went over to our Bishop's house to celebrate Christmas with him and all his extended family. While we were there we got to watch "Frozen" in their theater downstairs (So Legit!).

This week we will have the whole day off on New Year's day so that will be nice to recuperate from Christmas Break.... :D

Love you all and hope you have a great week!
With Love,
Elder Young
