Christmas & Happy New Year

What is up my friends?!
This has been a great week here! We had a huge conference with all of
the missionaries in the Barcelona area and that was great! The
president of our mission talked to us there and got us super pumped up
to find people ready to be baptized during the Christmas and new year
I got a new companion this week! His name is Elder Muncy and he is
from California. He works super hard and has just ended 6 months as a
missionary leader over the Islands Mallorca, Menorca and Ibiza. We are
super excited to get to work together!
Our miracle from this week happened on Christmas Day. One of the older
spainiards we have been teaching here came to church for his first
time! We have been trying very hard to get him to come to church for a
little over 2 months now. The problem is is that his back is hurt
fairly bad. For the past two months he couldn't even walk. It even
hurt him to sit up. We worked super hard teaching him and it's been
great to see his progress. Christmas Day he came to church! He rode
his bike 30 minutes just to come to church! It was super crazy! He is
still in a lot of pain but had a great time at church and said he is
going to come back next week as well! We are super excited for his
This has been a great week and Christmas is a great day out here as a
missionary. You get to go tell people about Christ and his birth and
what his life means for all of humanity. The life of Christ is
amazing. Without Jesus Christ we could not return to heaven. Without
Jesus Christ we we be totally lost as a human race. But we are not. We
have a savior. We have a redeemer. And He is Jesus the Christ, the Son
of the Living God. I love Jesus Christ and I love His gospel.

With Love,
Elder Bristol
