What Can I Give Back to the Savior This Christmas?

Hope everyone had a great week! We had a good one here! You can definitely feel that it's Christmas time! Lots of shops, markets with Christmas stuff, and lights everywhere! I love Christmas time! This week was good!

Monday- We had Family Home Evening again. The lesson was on Christmas of course! The lesson was based around the question, what can I give back to the Savior this Christmas? It made everyone think and it made me realize that we have so much to give back!

Tuesday- We had district meeting in Mlada Boleslav. We watched the Christmas devotional from the first presidency and it was great! I really enjoyed Elder Bednar's talk about the Nephites. We also had a branch activity that night. We got Meet the Mormons translated into Czech and we gathered a bunch of members, less actives, and investigators at a member’s home and watched it together. It touched a lot of them and was a good activity.

Wednesday - Nothing too special. We tried to find somewhere to do service on Christmas Day, but not too much success.

Thursday - We had a meeting with our baptismal date! He is a great guy, but doesn't know hardly anything about Jesus Christ. So we are starting at square one with him. But he is awesome! We also taught English that night.

Friday- Met with some less-actives and did some finding. Good day!

Saturday- Last week, when I had visa work in Prague, my companion contacted a lady that was in charge of an outdoor music display. She said that she'd love to have us come and sing. So we took a trip to Prague and met with 13 other missionaries and went and sang for this event. It was on a hill in Prague called Petřín. It was really fun and we had quite a few people video us and take pictures. One of the coolest things I have gotten to do!

Sunday- - We had 2 less actives show up to church, but no investigators. It was a great meeting though. In second hour, we got to go to Primary because we are involved in the nativity scene that they are doing for Christmas. Primary is insane but the kids are awesome! 

Hope everyone has a wonderful week!
