December 27, 2016 - There's No Place Like Home for the Holidays, Except For Boyton Beach, Florida

Merry Christmas Peeps!

Well, we have a pretty busy day today so I will be quick. We had a lot of Christmas related shenanigans going on this week (delivering all of the Christmas packages that arrived late, one of his included), but long story short we didn't get a lot of time to work in our area.

We had a super awesome Christmas Conference, we sang a musical Number, The First Noel and it was BOSS, then we had a funny white elephant gift exchange.

I went on exchange with Elder Flores, who is #StraightouttaPuebla so we had some fun and talked to some Mexicanos and Guatemalans and had a fun time.

This week we had a Christmas miracle, we weren't able to have contact with our investigator Nicohlson all week and we weren't able to round him up for church, so we were praying that he would come, and he showed up! It turns out that our Recent Convert named Junior called him three times and found him a ride so that he could get to church! Then that evening we were able to pass by and set him up with a baptismal date for Jan 8th and he told us that he is "ready for Baptism!"

I also Skyped my fam on Christmas which was awesome! It was so great to see them.

My last thought, I want to invite all of you to watch the "He is the Gift" video on LDS.org.

And may we all continue to Share the Gift, who is our Savior, Jesus Christ!

Elder Hansen and Elder Christensen with their gifts under the Christmas tree!

Open on Christmas Eve, I wonder what it is?

His new Star Wars Rogue One Christmas jammies!
He told us when we Skyped him that he had just wrapped up his other Star Wars PJ's and some of his other things to give to a boy who wasn't getting anything for Christmas.

Merry Christmas Elder Hansen!

Holy cow, it's a white shirt, what a surprise!
