Dear Family and Friends!
I am doing well. Elder Moreira and I have been learning a lot. This week we studied How to Begin Teaching and it was great to see his willingness to learn. He has progressed alot. As of now we have Fabian Gordillo with a date for baptism. Yesterday his sister-in-law, Daisy, gave a talk and bore her testimony saying that she knows he and his family will be sealed in the temple. It was very touching and I know he felt the Spirit. His wife started crying and then he started crying and maybe I even started crying who knows!

Darwin, our other investigator who had a date for baptism went on vacation so his date will be postponed a little. He still has the desire it's just the church from where he was at was is an hour and a half away. I love being here and helping the Lord in this work.

On Tuesday we had our Christmas Dinner with the Richardsons in la Casa Misional. They served turkey with mashpataeters and rolls. The rolls were probably the best. I made tons of turkey mashed potato sandwhiches! Oh and I let Hermana Richardson know that I didn´t miss the green beans so much!

We were able to sing in a zone choir and then we shared a Christmas video based off the A Savior is Born video (pretty funny).   This Christmas will probably be one I will never forget. Being a servant of the Lord during this special season is such a privilege especially since it's only a once or twice in a lifetime opportunity.

Santa has come!

Christmas morning I woke up at 6:30 and was debating with myself to stay and bed and sleep a little longer since it was Christmas, and I wanted to do what I wanted. Then I felt my desire change as I remembered why we celebrate Christmas and that it is a day to honor our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. I quickly got up and felt great the rest of the day. Crazy how sometimes we forget what the true meaning of Christmas is! Jesus is the Christ! I know that Christ lives. He is the head of this Church. He suffered and died for each and everyone of us, and he did it out of love.
Good Tidings of Great Joy 
Much Love, Elder Kimball
