First things first, if y'all haven't seen the new Christmas initiative video yet called "Light the World", you should do that right now because it is so awesome! I would say one of the best ones yet! Truly what better way is there to celebrate Christmas than by paying our devotions to the light of the world that entered into the world. We can become more like Him as we serve as He would serve! Just pretty awesome!

But umm what's happened since I emailed like a few days ago?... Well on Saturday we had an open house for the new chapel which we invited heaps of people to but... not too many came but it's all good. The stake put it on and they were actually doing tours and stuff so that was pretty cool. Then on Sunday it was stake conference so the new stake center was way packed! There was a 70 who came and his name was Elder Johanson and he is over a lot of the islands like Fiji and Vanuatu and some other little islands. He was really funny and very fob (that's what they call islanders). But he gave a really awesome talk about the importance of agency and also about Adam and Eve and he said that if any person feels like there are a nobody tell them they aren't because only Satan and his followers are NoBodies because they don't get a body and they don't get the gift of agency. So remember that you are always a somebody because you have a body and you are of infinite worth to your Heavenly Father!
Also after conference when we helped set up chairs and stuff all of the missionaries were outside taking pictures and all of the sudden Elder Johansen came out and was like those are some good pictures Elders, but now I'm going to have get some selfies with you Elders as well and we were like YES! haha but anyways Me and Elder Meyer are going to have a dinner with Tenielle and our ward mission leader again so that is going to be really fun! But anyways The church is true!
