Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!

All serious Elder Beck

Christmas Partay!

Hello. I am going to keep it short because I don't have much to say. It was super awesome to talk to you guys on Christmas. The week was also really nice.

On Tuesday I had a feeling to cook, so I made some brownies. They were super sugary, but super nice. I am not used to that much sugar. On Wednesday we had a Christmas Party/conference with other missionaries. It was fun. We did some skits and had some testimonies and watched a video and had some food. It was a good time.I was definitely feeling the Christmas spirit. Also came back in the evening and had a great day of missionary work. We found this man that hasn't been working for like 5 years and he seemed like a super prepared guy and he was just standing on the side of the road. You never know how is ready to hear about this message.

ON Thursday we had a full day in the area so we used it wisely and got a lot of work done. On Friday we had a good day, but it was short because in the evening we had to get together and do caroling as a zone. It was different. Uganda doesn't really feel like the caroling kind of place, but it was good. Traffic was a nightmare right before Christmas though. But we also taught that guy we met on Wednesday on the side of the road and he has a family of like 7 and he is good friends with one of the members in the branch. Super nice.

ON saturday we had a nice day and even when were siting waiting for a member to go with us to a lesson a guy came and sat down and we started talking and even taught a lesson with him. He had been taught by missionaries before. Tender mercy when the Lord brings someone to you. Sunday was a great day. We had a nice sacrament meeting. And even got a family to church that hasn't come all together yet until this Sunday and then we got fed big by a member. It was some of the best food I have eaten here in Uganda. It wasn't your typical american meal, but it was super nice. Then we called and skyped home. Played some basketball for P-day today. Even after the food, I still got it. haha. 

The BEST food ever!!!

This week I am just grateful for Family and Christ. And how those things can be together forever. Families really can be sealed together forever and Christ really did live and He still lives today. Through him we can be healed and filled with peace and joy. Have a happy New Year.
