9 And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the aglory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.
12 And this shall be a asign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
15 And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us.
16 And they came with ahaste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger.
18 And all they that heard it awondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds.
19 But Mary kept all these things, and apondered them in her heart.
May you Keep Christ in Christmas this year and remember to keep the spirit of Christmas in your hearts!
Merry Christmas from the Norwalk ward Missionaries!!! (and Santa!)

We went to the ward mission leaders house for Thanksgiving and it was good! His wife's family is huge and half of them are in our ward. So they have really big holidays and all the sister missionaries in the ward went there for dinner. It was a good time.
The kid sitting next to me... his name is Ammon and he served his mission in the Boise Idaho Mission. So we had a good time talking about Idaho and how great it is. He served in Nampa and his area was ALL FOUR STAKES!!!!! That's a big area. I asked him if he knew where the birch building was and he said yeah and then told him that used to be my church building. It was fun to talk about Idaho!! Any chance I get to talk about it, I take!!! :) haha you can take the girl out of Idaho, but you can't take the Idaho out of the girl!!!
Next to me is my companion sister Lindsey and next to her is sister Afualo... one of the other sister missionaries in our ward. These were all the "cousins". They are a giant Filipino family.
This ward is a lot more missionary minded than the last ward that I was in. They seem to really care about doing missionary work and people actually sign up to come on splits with us. So that's good. The ward is just split up into 3 areas. Our area is only about 3 blocks. It's pretty small. The elders have the sketchy part of town. They don't let the sisters go over there much. We ARE teaching one lady. Her name is Patricia. She is the brother of a Less Active member of the ward. But I don't really know if she has real intent or not. I suppose we will find out this week. We have to schedule another lesson with her.
I'm thankful for all of you.
And I'm thankful for the knowledge that this gospel brings me.
