Interesting Story (Dec 16)

So there I was on a team up with the Zone Leaders and I was with Elder Cooley. We decided to go and do some living christmas cards. Which is where you go and knock on a door. knock knock knock knock knock and as soon as they start to open the door you sing a christmas song then ask if you can come in a share the story of jesus' birth then you read luke and leave with another song.
So Elder Cooley and I go and do this in the nicest street in Tuskegee which is right by the Lake. We walk up to the door knock knock knock knock knock. The Door opens and we sing "Joy to the world the Lord is Come Let Earth Receive her King......" As soon as we finish He says " i apprieciate what you just did but i dont celebrate christmas..." BAM shut down!!!! ( HE was a Jehovas Witness) haha but we ask if we can come and share the account of jesus' birth and he lets us in and we read and testify and the spirit was really cool. He never would have let us in if we wouldn't have sang and he doesn't even sing or like when people sing. It was big testimony of singing to me. He told us we could even come back. IT was really neat. So don't be afraid to go caroling with your friends or family and share the story of jesus and invite people to learn more about the gospel. The missionaries will love you for your help and your lives will be blessed. This truly is a joyous season and i love singing cuz its one thing i really loved about being home. Its the one thing i can still do and know that my family is doing the same thing this season.
I know that the Savior loves everyone of us no matter who we are or what we did. I know that we should be willing to show our love for him just as much as we would want someone to show their love for us. I know that we are all Children of our Father in Heaven and that the way to be truly happy is with our family. Right behind that is the Gospel. So do me a favour this year. Remember what our savior did for us and think of some way to pay him back by showing somebody in our family how much you love them.
I know it will be a special Season. I love you all and can't wait to talk to you all. Merry Christmas. God bless you. Love, The coolest thing to ever hit the south in Forever!!!!!!!! Me :0 Elder Haws
