Mary Wrapped the First Christmas Present

Feliz Navidad!
The subject for this email comes from the sign outside the Roberson Avenue Baptist Church in Copperas Cove.  I often read the signs and they are almost always inspiring.  Truth can be found in any church.
We have been working closely with Heidi and we are so excited that she is going to be baptized this Saturday, which is also her birthday.  This is going to be an exciting week!
Heidi and her family are the best ever!  Heidi has started coming to mutual and she has made it a priority and she is inviting her friends to come as well. 
This week she surprised us by asking us how old you have to be to go on a mission.  Then she told us that she really wants to go on a mission!  We are so excited for her!!!
We have had a lot of miracles this week.  One of them, we have been calling our Christmas Miracle.    We were teaching a less active family. They haven't been to church for a while, and when we first started teaching them, we weren't sure what it would take to get them to church.
Then we watched What Shall We Give? and They Gave Up Their Christmas and talked about giving a gift to Jesus.  Hermano surprised us and said that he thinks that their gift will be to come back to church and get the whole family to come with us! 
We realize that it will take more work to actually get them to come to church, but we are so excited.  His heart is in the right place!
This week was also the Christmas Party for our branch!  And it was full!  So many people came!!!  It was super exciting!
Les quiero mucho,
Hermana Julie Anna Sanchez
