week fifty-eight: holler at your sisters

{this is from last week, I’ll send this week’s email next week! I’m super behind.}

Hi people!! It was such a good and crazy week, but I feel like I could say that about every week. I don’t have a ton of time so I’ll just get into the highlights of the week…

Last Monday night we weren’t having a ton of success, but then later on in the night before we went home, we were able to meet two different less active families and invite them to take the lessons. And they both accepted! Yayay. It’s so awesome to be able to teach the lessons to people who are already members and help them rekindle their testimonies.

Wednesday we went on exchanges with our Sister Training Leaders! It was super fun, Sister Webb came here with me and Sister Harrison went to Brea! Sunday we finally got the Elder’s areabook, which was awesome because now we actually know who was being taught on the new side of our area. So Sister Webb and I spent the whole day trying people on the west side. We weren’t meeting a whole lot of people, but during the day our ward mission leader texted us saying to come to his house that night for a surprise. We headed over after dinner still not knowing what was happening…but the theme of the day for Light the World was "Jesus Fed the Hungry and So Can You" so we were a little suspicious. We get in the car with him and his wife and basically what we did was go through a bunch of drive-thrus, buy something small, and then pay for the people behind us and get the person at the window to give them a light the world card. It was a blast!! We didn’t see anyone’s reactions, but I’m sure it really lit up their evening.

Saturday was so awesome. For the past thirteen years, the Placentia stake has put on a Nativity. It is a huge production, and they do 4 different showings of it. It was amazing!! And it was the perfect opportunity to invite investigators, and for members to invite their neighbors and friends. There were so many people and it was so fun to talk with everyone about our Savior. Christmas is the best.

This week we met soooo many new people who we were able to set return appointments with. So we didn’t teach a ton, but we found a lot of new people which is exciting 🙂

I love this work. I’m so grateful to be a missionary and to be serving the Lord at this time. Being a missionary during the Christmas season is the best. Christ lives, I know this is His church. And nothing brings me more joy.

I hope you all have a wonderful week!

All my love,

Sister Martinez
