Hello everyone, i hope this finds yall doing well, and that you all have a good christmas wherever you might be. Our week was pretty good, it was a very Christmassy week, which was awesome! we had our Christmas conference which was held in the eastern part of Edmonton, and it was amazing! The spirit was so strong there it was great. There was lots of music and we got to watch Meet the Mormons, which was pretty cool. And we ended with a testimony meeting where President Manion called a few Elders and Sisters up. It was one of the best zone conferences i have been too. We also had our ward Christmas program, and it was the first meeting in our brand new building! it was awesome! we packed about 265 people into the main chapel, and didnt have to open up the curtain door things because it is so big. it was awesome! There were even two people that came in off the street at the end of the meeting that said they would come back. So with lots of music about Christmas and meeting in the new building and what not, church was awesome yesterday!
We also got to teach the Plan of Salvation this past week to an investigator. it was a great lesson and it reinforced our testimonies of it. It brings a lot of joy into our lives and truly is a plan of happiness.
quote of the week comes from a referral that we taught and showed the He is the Gift video too. at the end she said "wow, that was powerful"
scripture of the week is a short one that comes from my personal study this morning, that applies to all, no matter what circumstance youre in or anything. Jacob 6:12 "O be wise; what can i say more?" That could be a motto for life. Just be wise and actually think before you do something. This is a great scripture that has grown to be one of my favorites because of the power and wisdom packed into a 8 word verse.
have a great Christmas and remember the true meaning of the Season!
Keep it real,
Elder W.Chad Thompson
