12/20/2015 | It's Christmas Time!!!


Isn't it a great time to be on the earth. It is such a great time to be happy!!! A time to celebrate the Birth of a Savior who if hadn't come to this earth, we would have no hope, no happiness. This is my
favorite time of year. I hope you all take the time to remember our savior this year. Remember the First Christmas gift.

So a quick update and prayer request for you. Itabayashi san did get baptized. He came in a full white suit, and was really excited. This area has just become the 2nd sign language area in this mission. The missionaries now will have the chance to learn Sign language, because of the RC, and to help with translation things. (There's also a possibility of other Deaf people becoming investigators here soon)
Please keep him in your prayers. He is going to need strength.

Also, The Shibuyas could use your prayers. They have been having a rough time lately with their friends making fun of them, and don't really want to come to church anymore. We cant even meet with them to much as of late, so if you could keep them in your prayers that would be awesome.

Well I've got to get running, so don't forget Christmas. I like the quote that is on a Button Elder Pace got for Christmas. It says "Christmas without Christ is like Hot Chocolate without Chocolate" In
other words, no meaning.

Looking forward to getting to spend some time with my family for Christmas. What will you do?

Well sorry my emails have been shorter as of late. Ill try to figure things out to get a longer one in sometime, but for now. Love me!!!

See you next year 笑
