Joyeux Noël et Bonne Année!!!

Reunion with MTC boys

     Well everybody, it's been a couple weeks since I've sent an email. There's been quite a lot that has happened...Christmas happened, 2017 happened, 3 baptisms happened, etc. Christmas was wonderful. I, of course, talked to my family and that was excellent. We had our Christmas party which was fairly cool and like bro, we also watched "La vie de Dory". Christmas eve was the best Christmas eve of my life. We went and did some caroling at the hospital with the 4 elders and 4 sisters of our Arue district and the spirit that was felt was indescribable. We sang for three people: A girl that was coming out of a 3 month coma and her family, a random lady that the spirit led us to, and another lady that we had given a blessing to a couple days earlier and had just had an operation earlier that day. It was amazing to be able to bring a little Christmas spirit to those who were spending Christmas in the hospital.
Christmas day spread
     As for our three baptisms, SO COOL!!! It's been a long time since I've seen a baptism and these three were awesome and full of miracles. One we baptized is doing awesome and still comes to every activity and is progressing well. Another one got married the same day as her baptism and it was her new husband that baptized her so that was cool. She had a rough time with her family accepting but at the end her parents came to the baptism!!

 And the other one we baptized had a great turn out from friends and family and ward members and the service was super spiritual. He got confirmed yesterday.
     Well that's about it for now. I love you all and hope you had a great Christmas and new year. Don't forget to make goals. Not just goals but plans to go with them. Mine are to have more gratitude for the blessings I have and to exercise more faith. The Lord lives and loves us, may He guide you through this year. 
-Elder Clements
Happy New Year!!
