This transfer we have been having much success, and I have been excited. Our branch has a baptismal goal of 8, and we were on track for our half. I was feeling great, and I think prideful as well. I forgot that it is the Lord that has the power to convert a heart. Yesterday Noel moved, a family told us that they were never going to be baptized, and we found out that a couple didn`t tell us the truth about their marital status, so they can´t be baptized before the end of the year. I believe that it was the Father´s form of teaching me humility. Now I´m trying to focus more on others and less on myself, and to recognize God´s power in all of the success that I have seen.
Elder Beutler and I are super excited about the new Christmas initiative that the Church put out for December! You all need to go to mormon.org and watch the Christmas video. I love it. I´ve been thinking a lot lately about how Christ is the Light of the World. He is definitely the light of my life. I can´t explain how important he is in my life. He is everything for us. As Christmas comes, do your best to come to Him. I can´t think of anything more important to share. The rest of Christmas is not as important. I am here in Argentina in the summer heat without the usual Christmas trees and gifts, etc, but I feel even more excited about Christmas this year than ever before! The Gospel is just great. I love what President Uchtdorf said in the very first talk of the last General Conference. He said that us members of the Church are walking on a path of diamonds, and sometimes we see it as a path of common pebbles. Be grateful for the blessing of having the Gospel in your lives. Most people do not have that blessing! I love you guys. Set up your Christmas trees!
