This week has been great! We can finally focus on one ward and really get things going. We have talked with the bishop and the other leaders of the ward about ways to get the missionary work really going. They are all so supportive of us--it's great! Elder Foster came to visit is last Thursday and talked to us about how to work with the members to help hasten the work. He also talked for a while about the love that our Heavenly Father has for us. I know that our Heavenly Father hears our prayers and knows each one of us personally. He wants to hear from us, and He wants to bless us--We just need to come to Him and receive His love! I have never felt so strongly about His love for us than right now. He is aware of each of us--even the ones who reject Him.
This week has been pretty boring. We are trying to find ways to fill up our time with meaningful service now that we only have one ward. It's been hard! We are going to focus on finding more people to teach and serve.
I am so excited for this Christmas season to remind us the importance of Christ and to find ways to serve Him. The church came out with a video about the Saviors birth entitled "A Savior is Born." It is so good! Here is the Link: Christmas.mormon.org.
Thank you for all of your love and support! I receive strength knowing that there are people back at home that support me in the Lord's work.
Love, Sister Jacobsen
