This week went by super fast! We had our Christmas Conference with the entire mission! It's a weird feeling when most of your mission friends are gone. I don't like being one of the older ones!
We went by the next day and had dinner with them and the Elders too. After that we took the presents that I bought with the money from Missy and Devin and we delivered those. We gave them to several people. I got games and puzzles and a bunch of stuff. There are a lot of older single men that we are working with and we took them gifts because they don't have any family. That was one of the highlights of my Christmas. They were all super grateful and surprised that we would bring them a gift. I loved it!We also met a possessed guy last night. Super freaky. I'm out of time but I'll tell that story next week. That is my cliff hanger, I guess;) One of the greatest things about missionary work is being so close to the spirit. It is sometimes physically draining to be so spiritually high all the time and when things like that happen it drains you more. It's so hard to describe. You can read people really well as a missionary just based off of feelings. It's the coolest to talk with your companion afterwards and the same thought or feelings you had they had too.
