Week 8 in Plano, Texas

     We are so excited to be able to talk to Jesse on Wednesday!!! We were able to chat back and forth on Monday for a little while.  He is doing really good and his spirits are high.  They haven't had much success with teaching new investigators, but are doing lots of service which he loves.  One of the members there in Plano e-mailed me the picture at the bottom.   They both offered the prayers during our Christmas Sabbath meeting yesterday - Elder D**** gave the opening prayer and Elder Jorgensen the closing prayers. It was perfect, as Bishop  comments about the Spirit of Christ centered on how the Spirit of Christmas involves missionary work and serving others. 
Merry Christmas to ya'll!!
     Well howdy ya'll. This week in Texas has been great except for the cold and the rain. The beginning of the week was warm, but then it just got cold and wet and windy. Most of our work is spent tracting still. Most people just say no thanks and shut the door. Then this week I got two new experiences of tracting. I had two people right in a row open the door and slam it immediately after just looking at it. Then another guy told us no thanks he worships Satin. I don't know if he was joking or not but he just got in his car and left.
     We had a specialized training on Friday and it was Christmas themed. We had to buy a $5 present before we went to the meeting and put a lunch in it. We don't have much lunch items at the house so we went to a gas station and bought a sandwich and some chips for the lunch and I bought glow stars for the present. At the meeting we put the presents in the back of the gym. Then we all lined up and the presents were given out a random to the other missionaries. I by far had the best gift. Everyone wanted to see it and there was a huge crowd around me. (see the picture) The autograph says "all my love and best wishes Nance" Then afterward we watched our Christmas movie. I watched Ice Age. There wasn't much else that happened this week. The picture was the highlight of my week, it was so funny.
     Well I hope that ya'll have have a great Christmas.
