Hey Y'allI love being here in S.C. especially around Christmas time! It is finally getting cold here, but it's a huge change from Utah where there is snow... and you freeze your bunz off pretty much from October till March. Here, there is no snow and most of the leaves are FINALLY falling to the ground. We also get a lot of rain! Although I am going to miss the snow for Christmas, I love the fact that we get to go to the beach!
I am loving all of the experiences that we have been able to have here at Myrtle Beach. The people here are just so warm, humble, loving and just kind. The people here feel like they are being rude if they don't let you into their house when we knock on their door. They also love to talk about Jesus Christ, which is awesome for us as missionaries.Christmas time is the best time to be a missionary, especially in S.C. We, as a district, got to make up Christmas skits. Our district has Elder Berry, who went to Tuacon High, and is basically a director. It is going to be so funny! It is called: "How Elder Green-ch Stalled Christmas!" In our district we have our District Leader who is from Texas, Elder Evans, Elder Green, Elder Berry, Elder Edwards, me and Sister Fox! Our district is very small but we get to do a lot of service projects with the Elders. It is a fun way to get to know them. Two of the Elders LOVE TO SWING DANCE! How cool! They are just so funny and so great. It's weird being the newbie because they don't know me very well yet, but it is still super fun! As a part of our skit Elder Green throws Christmas cookies in the ocean which gave me the excuse to go to Myrtle Beach! It is so pretty there. We are allowed to go anytime that we have personal time. Last week when we went and took a ton of pictures and we were able to find full shells on the beach. We are also going today with the Conway Sisters in our Zone, Sister Kniffen and Sister Jensen.
Y'all better be excited for next week to recieve me and my companions Christmas card!
