Hey everyone! What’s up!? Besides Christmas of course…THERE IS ONLY FOUR MORE DAYS!! Anyways this week was quite a normal week in missionary life.
We had an awesome Saturday though! We were planning and preparing for a volleyball activty for the YSA Stake that we cover. It is really cool because our area is so big our stake is covered by two sets of missionaries. So we teamed up with them to put on this activity. We had loads of fun playing volleyball, building unity with the members, and we got to talk to some non members and less actives too! It was lots of fun. Tons of pizza too so we were pretty happy.
The weather up here is pretty mild for it being mid December but we are still hoping (and praying) for snow on Christmas Day! There is still tons of snow on the mountains though!
I hope all of you can remember the reason why we celebrate Christmas. It is the celebration of the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ. We remember his birth and give gifts because God gave us the greatest and first gift of all: His beloved son. We can do all things, overcome all trials, and endure every hardship through Christ.
Merry Christmas to all!
Love, Elder Blatter
