New Hartford #LIGHTtheWORLD

SISTER DEVRIES AND SISTER FERRIN
It has been so much fun to involve the church Christmasistmas initiative to our missionary work! It has been a conscious effort to go out of our way and serve even more this week. I hope that you are all joining in and doing all you can to become more like the Savior!! :) This week was great and we had a lot going on! Hopefully I can share it all with you!!

We got to watch the Christmas Devotional with our investigator Victoria! She is doing so well and she loved it! As we were watching it with her she kept pausing it so that we could talk about the things that were blowing her mind! She was so cute about it!! :) It was fun!! She also came to the Christmas party this week and the WHOLE family came too to watch her littlest daughter Sophia preform in the Christmas pageant! She is so sweet!! :) It was awesome to have them there!





Mike that we put on date for baptism last week is stilll doing well. We hope that he will continue to progress but Sister Ferrin and I saw him seperately on exchanges this week!! But Alieanna his neice that is a Recent Convert is doing great at sharing it with him! :) She is so sweet and bears some awesome testimony! 

We also met this awesome new potentials. they are college students and they were super open to learning more so hopefully I can update you on those 2 girls soon!!! :) It has been really cool!! We have been seeing miracles as we have taken the challenge of the AP's to always carry in our hands the Book of Mormon as we are finding it is helping us immediately testify of our unique message and help us find the elect :) It is AWESOME!!! :)  We gave away 3 Books of  Mormon this week and we got let into 2 doors while tracting.. WHICH IS HUGEEEEEEEE!!!! It was awesome!! We picked up a new investigator Sandra! Sister Ferrin tracked into her a while ago and she told her to "just come back later" but not someone who seemed super solid. We were driving down the street though and we passed her house and Sister Ferrin pulls over and we go and try and she let us right in!! We were shocked and she was so willing to listen, She was tearing up as we shared the message of the restoration with her and she is going to let us come back :) I am super excited to work with her!! :) 

We had two exchanges this week, zone conference, the ward Christmas party, and caroling and dinner with President and Sister Rogers. It was so much fun!!! I loved exchanges one of my favorite parts was being with Sister Frank (she was trained by Sister Baxter after me in Vestal) so it was really fun to catch up with her and have that time to talk about Vestal! I love that cute little town!! :) It was a blast!! I love all the Sisters that came for exchanges though it is just a blast to be with them and to switch companions for a day!! :) It's good to learn new skills!! Zone Conference was really awesome too!! It was all about the Book of Mormon and that is when we got to promise to carry the Book of Mormon outside our bags and that we would see miracles and WE DID !! :) Then the ward Christmas party was awesome and we became friends with one of the Part Member families and we are going to start teaching the kids so that they can get baptized!! :) It is awesome!!! We also got to be Santa's elves!! :) Then yesterday we had dinner with the Elders and the Office couples and President and Sister Rogers! :) After we were done eating we went caroling with the group and then we just went on with our night and it was great!! 



I love the Christmas Season!!! :) I hope you all have a great week!! 






LOVE SISTA DEVRIES!
