Great to be a missionary and such an exciting time to help others know of Jesus Christ!

We went to more Christmas markets. It was such a fun afternoon with our
apartment. We met with Favour this week. She has such great faith in Jesus Christ. On Wednesday night we went to a member in the first Ward who invited us over for a thanksgiving feast, it was a lovely time spending it with them and others. On Thursday we were able to share time with Sister Jovero, she is such a grandma to us. She is such a loving person and she has so much faith in the Book of Mormon. She had just got back from a trip to Israel and all the other areas there.

Later that day we went on splits since we had many appointments, so I went out assistant mission leader to the Garcia home to spend time with them and Leo.

On Friday we help at the Vienna Austria center setting up for the United Nations Women Group bizarre, a charity event to help the children organizations so this year the money went to the refugee children. It was great chatting to people just normal while setting and moving boxes of books. After spending the morning there we went to exchanges. I stayed here in Wien. We met with Petra. She is so ready for the gospel. We also met with Niship and Destaney who are not as present at church as much. They both have great testimonies. It was great to spend time with them both individually.

On Saturday we went to the Austria center again to do more service so we helped volunteers find where they needed to go. It was so cool to see all the different countries there. They had a talent show, and booths from all around the world selling things and food. It was so neat to have Mexican well Panamanian food. While we were just about to leave we started noticing that all the miss countries were there and Miss America was there as well.

Later that day we had a stake missionary conference in Wiener Neustadt. It was a great meeting to help further the work; things I found needed to hear were spoken and felt.
Sunday was busy after church we had Ward council then had to hurry to
the institute center to set up for visitor night. We visited with Reynoldo and administer the sacrament to him with Brother Morgan. He is in the hospital. When we came he lit up and there were so many times where we felt the spirit. I had tears in my eyes in the end. He has been through a lot and has changed so much.  There were sweet moments I will cherish for my life. The sweet beauty of someone who desires to partake of the sacrament and to have the opportunity to remember the covenants made at baptism.

 I know Heavenly Father knows us and our desires. He knows what we can become what He wants us to be. He wasn't us to be the butterflies we were meant to become. So don't try to fit in when you were born to stand out.

Great to be a missionary and such an exciting time to help others know of Jesus Christ!
