December 14, 2015 Happy Holidays from Brooklyn!

Hey there! How are you all doing? We are doing so good here and I wish I had time to tell you all about the members and investigators and missionaries here. Suffice it to say that things are going well, we are seeing new investigators from sharing the Christmas video, and we have two progressing investigators, one with a baptismal date! That was pretty exciting. This teaching pool hasn't looked so good at least since spring, judging by area book records. Junior is the one with a date, which is for the 17th of January. He is so pure in heart. He's only eleven but he blows my mind. Whenever we are there he begs for us to stay and tell him more. He's wanted to come to church so bad for a while now, and finally yesterday we did it! It's hard because his family goes to a different church. So the real question of whether or not he will be able to fulfill his desires is whether or not we can convince his mother.

Another quick tender mercy was our zone conference this week. In our last one we really hammered "talking with everyone" because despite being city walking missionaries most companionship a were happy if they could talk to two people in a DAY. We've been following up diligently and trying to help the missionaries. It's been a struggle, but we are really changing. Just before the zone conference the assistants sent us a report from our last week of sharing the video, and our zone of 19  missionaries shared it with 471 people. Still below our goal, but it was such a success for these missionaries and set a good example for the mission. I invite each one of you to share the video (A Savior is Born). It is beautiful. It's the reason I'm here. I promise that no matter our current level of commitment to the Savior and his teachings, just increasing that starting now will make you happier. That's my testimony! In the name of Jesus Christ, amen.
