Christmas, New Year's and Three Kings Day

Building the house on Christmas... 

We had something AMAZING happen on Sunday! :D

We have found like 8 new families to teach! Ok so we are working with a less active family who hasn't come to church in years...Well every time we went over we never had a plan on what to teach and just kinda went with the Spirit... Well the last time we went over was Friday before church. They weren't planned but as we sat down I received the clear impression that we had to talk about being examples and use 3 Nefi 12... Which btw is  one the favorite scriptures of Sister Rowland. We began to talk and told them they HAD to put an example for their old daughter who was going to serve a mission. Then I talked about dad and the Powerful example he set for me. The next Sunday they were at church! And then the miracle was that it was fast and testimony meeting and now one got up to share for a good 3 minutes. Bishop got up and invited this family to share their testimonies as a pair FROM THE PULPIT saying that we haven´t seen them in church in awhile and he was overjoyed to see them. The brother got up and said ¨Brothers and Sisters it´s time for me to be an example especially for my oldest daughter¨ He then looked right at me and smiled. The whole congregation was in tears. He then shared a very simple but sweet testimony as well as his wife.
