Well, I guess I will start out with what could possibly be the greatest miracle of my mission (kidding only kidding)...... MY LOST PACKAGE WAS FOUND. On Wednesday, I received a wonderful phone call from my good friend (and assistent to the president) Elder de Jesus, that somehow my package had gotten sent to TAPACHULA. But it had made its way back to the mission home and I would receive it in January. WOOO!!!!!
But, the sad part was, we wouldn't be able to do the Christmas crafts with the Hermanas in the branch that mom had sent. So, randomly on Thursday, President George called and said he was heading down to Comitan for an interview and would stop by Teopisca to bring my package!! WHAT!!!!!
So we received everything and did the crafts yesterday which turned out super cute!!! And we have been kept warm by the fuzzy socks and gloves thanks to Aunt Jill and the chocolate has all been eaten... let's just say it came at a difficult time for us in the month... ;) you feel me? hahahahaha.
SO THE PRAYERS AND FASTS OF EVERYONE WERE ALL HEARD AND WE ARE GRATEFUL FOR THEM (OK.... maybe we didn't fast. but pray, we did)
Well, yesterday something marvelous happened..... randomly the district president showed up with his 2nd councilor and the secretaries to our little sacrament meeting in Teopisca....and it was amazing!!! They gave talks that followed the exact needs of what we had given in our report that we send to the Stake every transfer.
They were so loving. After the meeting they asked, "Hermanas, do you know of some less actives who may need something that we could go visit?"
And then they did divisions with our members right in the moment and we all went to visit the people who hadn't come to church! I could not believe it. It was beautiful to see such real intent and reaction in church leaders. It's such a miracle to have such great leaders here in San Cris.
Welllll that's all I can think of that happened this week. Hope you all have a wonderful NAVIDAD. And just think of Jesus Christ being born in a stable.... such humble circumstances.... just think about it.
