Knock, Knock!

Dear Family and Friends,

Its nice to hear that you are all doing good and that everyone in healthy and happy for the Christmas season. I guess i wont be answering questions this week since nobody had any. But Thanks for all the Birthday wishes. This year our mission Christmas party is on the 20th. We get to spend the day playing sports, eating food, singing, watching a movie, exchanging gifts, and having a devotional. It will be a good day and lots of fun. Oh, and sorry its so cold up there, I'm roasting down here.

Now for my week. We spend a lot of time contacting. we go knock, knock, knocking on doors. We walk so much that my shoes are going to wear down fast. But its paying off. We found two less active members who gladly recieve us and allow us to teach them. They are nice and are hopeful to get them reactivated. Then we also found a new investigator. He has friends that are members of the church and he had never heard of Joseph Smith. So we taught the first lesson and he said that wee could back even though he also said that he was really busy with work. So there is hope in the future with him also. 

This last week on Saturday we took a recent convert to the temple to attend a Christmas Devotional out on the grounds. It was the first time that she had ever been to the temple. She was so excited and it was great to share in her joy. The Devotional was good. Elder Ceballos of the Seventy spoke and there was a lot of singing. Elder David Archeleta sang about 5 songs. It was really cool and helped to get us in the Christmas spirit. We also attended our stake Christmas activity. It was good and they sang English Christmas Carols in English and they also sang the Grinch song from the movie in Spanish. It was funny and helped with the Christmas spirit also.

In all this week was a good one. We had success and had a great time. I hope you all have a great week and have fun at the Family Christmas party.

Love you all,
Elder Ashworth
