well first off we are getting snow this week hopefully we haven't gotten like any thus far. but maybe this week
we have been working on family;y mission plans with everyone lately. so let me explain a family mission plan is a plan to accomplish by the end of the year and then have goals to get there
so like for the year have someone take the discussions so monthly you'll have family home evening or attend the temple and daily you'll pray for mission opportunities for yourself not just missionaries. so thats a lot of fun seeing what families want ot do and you are able to measure what you need help with.
so 25 ways over 25 days
day 1: we cleaned a ladys house because she cant do it anymore and there was a lot of trash we didnt get it asll done because there is so much we wish we could do more
day 2: i wrote the parents but it probably isnt there yet..
day 3: told someone how awesome there are
day 4: we went to church
they are so easy everyone should do them and it really just helps you be a nice human being its great.
well its been a good lifeMonday we played some sports and then we played card games at a members and its so much fun they are the best. then me and sister wright had a really good conversation about being better to really help the ward do missionary work.
so this is the Christmas video and everyone should watch it and do the 25 ways over 25 days its the best thing and i just love it so much
enjoy this Christmas season but remember we should always be willing to help others love you all!
