Quote: " And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Cæsar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed. ( this taxing w
as first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.) And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city. And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judæa, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:) To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child. And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered. And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn. And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And this a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men." Luke 2:1-14
This week was pretty good. Not a ton to report. It was pretty cold this week. It has snowed kind of randomly and then it'll get wet and melt and get all dirty and then it'll snow and do that whole process again! Anyways, we are doing our best to stay warm and to get people to take their hands out of their pockets long enough to take one of our cards haha. But is is good. This week our ward had an "adult party" (as they called it) and basically just the adults in the ward came and played ping pong and watched a movie and then went and ate dinner together. A ton of kids ended up showing up anyways though so it basically just turned into a ward get-together. Not sure why they had it because our Christmas party is this week, but our recent convert came and had a good time so we will take it;) haha. Speaking of my recent convert, he gave me this sweet jacket the other day! I look very Korean-ly handsome in it, but it is a little too small to wear with my suit under it. So I might have to wait until it is a little warmer and can wear less layers underneath. Also yesterday we had a dinner with his family and the 2nd councilor in the Stake President's family and also a member of the bishopric's family. It was pretty fun and pretty good. It was cool to see all those members come through to try and help him feel comfortable and get situated into the ward. Other than that not a ton happened this week! We are preparing a song for our Christmas conference this week. It is kind of whatever, but it'll still be fun. Excited to talk to you family! Love you all and miss you! I like to imagine as it says in the scriptures that we were with that "multitude of heavenly host praising God" at the announcement of His Only Begotten Son, even Jesus Christ! What a great time to remember Him and all he does for us! This Church is true! Love you and pray for you all!
