Grützi völ und Frohliche Wiehnachten!

That is hello and Merry Christmas in Swiss German! Anyways, this week was awesome, because it finally snowed! Switzerland is finally the winter wonderland that it is meant to be.
Anyways, this week was pretty solidly awesome. First of all we had a great ward Christmas party. The Chelso family and Peter, our Jewish investigator came, and they all
loved it. Peter was super impressed, and he told us and Bishop Uchtdorf that this will not be the last time that he visits our church. And we are going to the synagogue with him on Saturday, so that will be AWESOME. But the ward party was even awesomer because
Carmen came with her husband that is not a member, as well as a lot of the less active members that we invited. It was a super awesome event. I loved it.
And then Sunday was a super good day as well because Ralf came to church again. And we watched the First Presidency devotional. Man that was so good. I love president Monson. He is so cool, and his talk was so awesome. Anyways, the rest of our week was great as well. On Friday we had a street display/caroling event, but it was raining SUPER hard. But we sang anyways, and we were able to find quite a few interested people, which was awesome. Then the rest of this week we had a lot of fallen out appointments. Everyone is getting sick or else they don`t have time to meet with us. Oh well. We will find some new people.  
Anyways, this week was awesome, and I get to talk to you in 6 days! YAY! Love you all and have a great Christmas! And don`t forget, you can`t ruin Christmas, even if you burn down the drapes. So everyone relax a little bit and enjoy the real spirit of Christmas. There is no better way to celebrate Christmas then in the service of our fellow men. That is the reason why Christ came to this earth. The son of man came not to be
ministered unto, but to minister. I know that as we follow Christ`s perfect example our joy may be full as we lift others and share the light of Christ!
