So to start with the strangest new of all, IT SNOWED IN LOUISIANA!! I never thought I'd see the day! It literally snowed everywhere! South of the Lake where we live only got a little bit and it didn't stick long, but in Hammond I think they got like 2 or so inches which is just crazy! It is definitely a Christmas miracle!!
This week was really good but also felt super short for some reason. Donald is doing good on his goal to be baptized on the 19th of January. He is using lemon juice to try and help him lose the urge to smoke and he says it is working! Please keep him in your prayers so that he can kick the habit once and for all! We also got to meet with the Smith family this week. We took them 8 copies of the Book of Mormon! So now all the people in the family old enough to read have a copy! We also watched The Restoration with them because of how many kids they have. We thought it would keep the kids attention more than a lesson haha.
On Wednesday we got to go to the Farrell's house to watch the Christmas Devotional since we didn't get to watch it on Sunday. It was super good and Sister Farrell was awesome enough to buy us all pizza for the Devo and let us have our district meeting there afterwards.
Scripture for the week: Luke 2:14
Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
I hope all y'all have a merry season of peace on earth and good will towards all men. Christ was born to bring peace so let us do our part and share that peace with others that don't have it this Christmas season. Each of us has the power to be a light to someone who may be lost in the dark this season.
