He is the Gift
The past week, the mission has been emphasizing an initiative known as “He is the Gift.” We’ve been given different pass-along cards for the holiday season, and we’ve been showing everyone a 3-minute video on christmas.mormon.org. The whole thing is truly meant to help everyone remember the meaning of Christmas, and, more importantly, to share that gift with those around them. I would encourage all of you to take a few minutes out of the day to watch the video and to share it with somebody else.
Ray has been out of town, so I do not have any updates on him for this week.
The weather has been warming up, oddly enough. Today, the thermostat read 10 degrees Celsius, which is roughly 50 degrees Farenheit. A good day in Canadian December.
Elder Sloan, Elder Winkler, and I have been having consistent dinners with members the past week, and I’m pretty sure I’ve gained a bit of weight on the mission. We don’t have a scale in the apartment though, so I couldn’t tell you for sure.
I’ll send pictures eventually!
