Merry Christmas! What a fun week. I really have enjoyed this week, there has just been so much going on. We have caroled on the sidewalk for hours a couple of nights. So much fun, I really felt like Dan Jones, Brigham Young, and Joseph Smith going at it from the corner. We handed out SO many copies of the Book of Mormon, Restoration pamphlet, and so many cards that we signed I thought my wrist was going to fall off. Hopefully we get some turnaround. So much fun. We also were able to find 3 new investigators! One from the sisters, Mr. L.  He is pretty interesting, has potential, and is available! So we hope to continue to see him. As well, A and S, both are super solid and have pretty much been anti-anti-ed... They watched a parody of two missionaries singing a song to a popular song and it really sparked their interest to learn more. They have been to church twice, and have great interest, but not as much time. So we are excited to see where things go. Even the LA work has seen miracles. Found two new Less Active's this week and 1 came to church that hasn't been to church for 5 months, and the other, a Young Single Adult, has refused to hear anything about the church for 5 years, but met with us and wants to keep meeting! It is amazing to see the deep relationships so many of these people have that can just be picked up again. Quite a few things starting to pick up. 

Lots coming to pass. The Zone seemed to slow down this last week, probably because everyone is busy, but it seems like everyone used the time very effectively, hopefully we can turn some of these potentials into investigators. Lots going on, everyone seemed happy at the Christmas party and spirits were high. Everyone was excited to see Pres. Lam and hear the greatest stories from Elder James. 

I went on an exchange with Elder T last week, it was really good to see things from the Shing Mun perspective. However, I think the person who benefited the most was Elder P! Elder T is doing well, he does a great job at leading the district. A is amazing. He probably has the award for the most copies of the Book of Mormon handed out this week. Elder B is also doing amazing, so funny and such an example of what Christlike love is.  Elder P came off just absolutely loving life, haha,  they reaped a great harvest! 
This is the time to reach out! Find those we can serve, in big and small ways. Miracles are left and right, just turn your head. 
Love you all! Merry Christmas!!

A great week. Things are well. I love being a missionary, I am grateful for my Lord and Savior. This is the best time of my life.
