Spirt's Up.... And so is The Tree๐ŸŽ„ Week #40 WOW!!


ELDER GENTRY LOVES CHRISTMAS!! 

Hey everyone, this week was pretty good. We had a couple really good lessons with our investigators and some Less Active Members. Me and Elder Weiss were on bikes this week so I'm really looking forward to the car. "We are still just out here Grindin'"

So this week we had a really powerful lesson with our Investigator family. They are from China so it is challenging to teach them, they can speak alright English. The hardest part about teaching them is they have no Christian background so they don't really understand the need or the purpose of The Savior. We shared a Savior is born with them. When we teach them and we say certain words if they haven't heard that word before they will repeat it, so it was super powerful when they were watching the video and it said "Savior" and they repeated it back, we also testified of the Savior Jesus Christ and the importance he has in our lives and the spirit was so strong!

So the last couple of weeks we've had this little Christmas tree and it's cute and all haha but Me and Elder Weiss were thinkin every missionary has a lame tree just like this!! So we wanted to get a better Christmas Tree!! So we went Thrift shopping and found a 6 ft Tree for 20 Dollars and we DECKED IT OUT. We also found a roll of wrapping paper in the house so we wrapped a bunch of boxes and made it look legit. hah it's definitely beginning to look a lot like Christmas in our home hah.

The First Presidency Christmas Devotional was last night and it was pretty cool. My favorite song the Mormon Tabernacle sang was Carol of The Bells. My favorite talk was by Linda K. Burton, she spoke about what we can do to become more like the Savior and to remember him this holiday season. She quoted a children's hymn. He Sent His Son..."How could the Father tell the world of love and tenderness? He sent his Son, a newborn babe, with peace and holiness. How could the Father show the world the pathway we should go? He sent his Son to walk with men on earth, that we may know. How could the Father tell the world of sacrifice, of death? He sent his Son to die for us and rise with living breath. What does the Father ask of us? What do the scriptures say? Have faith, have hope, live like his Son, help others on their way. What does he ask? Live like his Son." If we follow the council in this song we can become true disciples of Jesus Christ. We must LIVE LIKE HIS SON.

So things here are still going wonderful, we've got our Christmas Swag on and we are out there teachin' and testifyin'!! I just love this time of year. The scripture I would like to share this week is 3rd Nephi 27:21 21 Verily, verily, I say unto you, this is my gospel; and ye know the things that ye must do in my church; for the works which ye have seen me do that shall ye also do; for that which ye have seen me do even that shall ye do; I love this scripture because I know that Jesus Christ was sent into this world from a loving Heavenly Father to be an example for all of us. I'm so thankful for Jesus Christ's Example. Have a great week everyone and enjoy this Holiday Season.
