Hello Everyone!
I hope Christmas was great for everyone and it was a great holiday and everyone felt the true spirit of Christmas!!! And everyone is getting ready for a new year! it is crazy how time is just flying by and its this time of year. but i hope it passes by great and everyone has a great new years!!!
This week was a great week honestly. It went by super fast with Christmas and everything else. Last Monday it was amazing we had a Christmas devotional with Presidente and Sister Merrill. Lets just say the spirit was very strong there i cannot explain it! We got to watch the Christmas Devotional from the first presidency! it was super great and i felt like inspired! But i learned the true spirit of Christmas during the meeting. It is a time of year to remember our lord Jesus CHrist and the great example he left for us and all the teachings we need to follow to have all the happiness in the world. He is so amazing i would love to be just like him! also a great time of the year to forget ourselve and think of others and help them before us. Serve them and help them feel of the same love! It was great i enjoyed it aton. We actually did that here we did a service project on tuesday and we painted a ladies house it was fun,  hey nothing better than painting in Africa hah!!! it turned out pretty well i though. And then on Christmas we actuall went and saved peoples christmas. Well we just went Caroling to some members houses it was fun. haha! But christams was just really great and a great experience to spend it here in Angola! NEver will forget it, its just great.
Saturday i got to watch a old investigator get baptized it was great his name is Adi! he is a champ and will be a great memeber. I feel like the work here it is just going along well and its growing a little at a time. Trying to be the best i can and help those in need come unto Christ! I am loving the mission though and helping everyone and see the changes in others lives. It should be a fun new years here!

Today it is just another short pday then weds we will be playing soccer with other missionaries it will be fun. But Tuesday and Weds we have to be in our house at 6pm just for extra safety.  I hope all is well with everyone and the lord blesses every single one of you during this week and the new year to come! i love you all and im greatful for all you have done for me! HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
Love you Elder Banta
