16 - Bonfil 5


It's Christmas time and things have been very active here in the mission. Yesterday our mission did a big Christmas devotional for all of the local stakes. It was a good program which included a couple of special numbers by all of the missionaries in the city. It was great and the spirit was strong. We all are excited for the holiday.

So in Bonfil everything has been progressing with the season. My Spanish isn't there yet, but I'm making fast progress. I can understand about 60% of what the Mexicans are saying and can communicate well enough, although I'm really not very fluent. We've made a bunch of contacts last week that we are excited about. The spirit is strong and it is amazing to see the changes that occur in the investigators.

This is really an amazing time of year as we celebrate the birth of the Savior. Christ was sent here into this world so that we can all be able to overcome our struggles and sin, and have the opportunity to return to our Heavenly Father. This is the greatest gift that God has given us. Through the atonement of Jesus Christ, it is possible for any of us to find comfort and help in times of struggle, and relief and forgiveness for any sin. As we apply the atonement in our lives and continue to recognize weaknesses and work to correct ourselves, we can find much peace and joy in our lives. This I testify of, in the name of Jesus Christ, amen.

One of our investigators worked at a circus that was in Bonfil last week. We got our pics next to Simba.
