I hope that your Christmas was amazing!! And that you were able to remember our Savior amidst all the hustle and bustle. Something that I love about being a missionary, a representative of Jesus Christ is that during this time, the message that we bring has even more affect on the people because they recognize that Christmas really is about the birth of the Savior. This week was great :)
Here in Peru, Christmas is celebrated at midnite with a ton of fireworks and everyone shouting Feliz Navidad!! Haha it is awesome. We were woken up and stayed awake for quite a bit on CHristmas eve :)
I cannot believe that it is 2014 in two days!!! Crazy how time flies. I hope that you are all planning on some good, reachable goals for the new year. SOmething that I have learned about goals in the mission, is that they should always be an act of faith that can be made a reality with the help of our Father in Heaven. This year, my goals have to do with becoming closer with the Savior and remembering Him. I have gained a super strong testimony this year of the Atonement and I know that He in the only one who can make us clean. He is the most important and living His Doctrine will make us happy.
Make sure your goals are in line with the Lord´s will. If they are, He will bless you. :)
Con mucho amor siempre,
Hermana Elisheva Ali :)
