Come inside and receive your free gift...Jesus.

Oh won't you all miss all the good southern Church marquees? They are the funniest! 

Oh goodness, I hope you all had such a good Christmas! I just love mission Christmas's. They are the funnest ever! Friday we went to downtown Charleston and went caroling with our zone. It was the funnest thing ever. We split up into smaller groups and we just roamed the streets and would stop at different places and sing Christmas songs. Oh everybody would just love Charleston. You all need to go there. I'll go with you! But we had lots of random people just stop and take pictures of us or video record us. We prolly got put on a lot of My stories on snapchat :D haha

Yesterday was great, we had lots of different meal appointments since members can feed us on Christmas and everybody just wanted us to stay forever. I love this ward, they probably have some of the best people I've ever served around! They are awesome. We have been fully stocked up with treats and goodies until next Christmas rolls around. Last night we went to a members house named the Poston's and they are so fun. They fed us some good ole southern food. You know I can't remember the name of what we had, but they just have a giant pot filled with corn on the cob, shrimp, sausage and potatoes. And they just throw seasoning in there and mix it all together, throw it on the fire and then throw it on your plate and into your tummy. It was yummy. Brother Poston made sure to steam half a bushel of oysters for us and showed us how to thoroughly shuck and eat the oyster. Just bite and swallow. Although Sister Goettsche just kept chewing which is probably why she didn't like the taste as much. 

I think my favorite part of Christmas though was getting to go to church Christmas morning. It was so cool just being gathered together with all of the different members or nonmembers there. Being there and knowing that whatever everyones conversion or testimony or understanding of the gospel was; we all knew Jesus Christ enough to choose to celebrate the day of His birth worshiping Him and partaking of His gift of the atonement. I'm grateful to be surrounded by so many disciples of Jesus Christ who are all trying to follow Christ to the best of their ability. And that's all that we can do. Isn't is so amazing that all across the globe you could've seen the exact same thing? I'm so grateful for my Savior Jesus Christ. I love Him and am glad we can continue to celebrate His birth through the way we live our lives. I love you guys and hope you have a great week!
