Not much happening here this week. I think that the most notable thing going on around here is A Savior is Born. If you haven't seen the videos you should check them out. Its pretty awesome. We've been working really hard to get it out there and we've had some pretty funny experiences. One time we went up and contacted this guy on his phone completely oblivious to the world and we were like hey whats going on man? Do you have internet on your phone? And he was kind of weirded out and we were like no we just want to show you a video! He looks at us for a minute and then he's just like, no I can't read sorry. I told him, you don't need to be able to read to understand this video its about Jesus. We kind of battled for a few minutes and eventually we gave up on trying to show him the video right there on the spot and scheduled an appointment at his house. He was kind of confused but pretty open to everything. We went up to some old lady in front of her house on the same day and we offer her the card and explain to her what it means. She takes the card and just tells us, oh thank you so much, I have the perfect place for this card. We then watched her enter her house, and put the card on her huge shrine, alter thing to the virgin Mary. We laughed for a while about that one. But yeah, its been great to be able to share this. Its always great to remember the true meaning of Christmas. I invite all of you to go check out those two videos on lds.org. They are awesome. I hope you all have a good week.
