What an amazing Christmas. Christmas breakfast was spent with the McNaught's. Sis McNaught even got us normal bacon (because Aussie bacon is just ham) and CANADIAN MAPLE SYRUP! She served her mission in eastern Canada so it's pretty cool to talk about her mission with her. Following that we called home via skype. So it was great to see how much everyone has changed over the past 7 months. Especially Carter. Next we went to lunch with the Davies. They invited their non-member friend, Mari, and she was super excited to hear the gospel and to read the Book of Mormon. After those activities we decided to head back to the flat to take a nap. Then we went to the Shaw's for Christmas. Brother Shaw is the Bishop and an amazing man and example to me. I have learned a lot from him. This Christmas I was especially able to feel of the love of Christ and to learn the importance of family and friends. I hope everyone enjoyed their Christmas and were able to learn more of His birth and divine mission as our Saviour.
JANUARY 1ST 2015!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
HAPPY NEW YEAR! 2014 was an excellent year full of change, miracles, and many important events in my life. At this stage I am very happy, or at least doing my best to be. Occasionally things have been rough but it's nothing I haven't been able to handle I am certainly looking forward to 2015, an entire year to spend serving my mission. Learning, growing, and becoming more like Christ. I look to live the rest of my life from this point on as nobly and boldly as I possibly can. Not worrying about mistakes, the past, or the future. Letting God take me where I need to go and guiding me in what to do. Never complaining and never letting faith waiver. No matter what my situation is. I love Christ and my Father above and that is what will bring true happiness and everlasting joy.
