Making gingerbread houses with the Evans family!
Well, another good week here in AZ! Christmas was amazing and i'm so grateful to have spent it out here! Here is my story for this week:
So, we were walking down the road with spirits kinda low because this atheist pulled out all this anti-mormon literature and was just chastising us. We pass a house that had a ton of orange trees, like 7 or 8. A lot of houses have orange trees but these were loaded with oranges! So, Elder Netane goes up to their door to ask if he can pick an orange. The lady comes out with two grocercy bags and, in broken english, told us to pick some. So we picked 4 each but that was not good enough for her! She ended up filling both our bags (about 35 oranges each) and was super excited that someone wanted some of her oranges. In HORRIFIC spanish, Elder Netane said that we were Mormon missionaries and she said "I know, I know, I Jehovah Witness." We got Christmas oranges from a J-Dub. Isn't that awesome?! Her kindness was so incredible! Sometimes people put their differences aside and really are kind to others.
Austin- Great talking to ya bro! Enjoy the TV but remember what is really important. Stay focused on the good stuff! "Lay up treasures in heaven."
Lexi- It was awesome to see ya! You are lookin mighty fine in those braces! I miss you so much and good luck in school this next semester!
Miss you guys a ton!
