December in the Nebraska Omaha Mission

BYU Women's Volleyball team comes to Omaha for a game. They are such amazing and beautiful women.
 Enjoying Zone Conference.
 Everyone singing "Away in a Manger"
 Having been fed by the Spirit of the Lord to help us change our hearts to feel more charity - and having been fed a delicious meal by a Relief Society group, and having so much more to enjoy - we then settled in for picture taking. 
Such wonderful missionaries! Love them!

 Does it look like we're snowed in? Well, we were till about noon the next day.
 These enduring and endearing pioneers had to trudge through snow once again.
 Looks like an enchanted wonderland!
 Can you see the Winterquarters Temple through the snowy branches?
 Adorable sister missionaries with a pure testimony of the Savior, Jesus Christ. They love to share the truths of God's plan of happiness for all His children. 
 More beautiful sister missionaries who have personal understanding of the Atonement - the plan by which we can repent and let go of our sins and give our will to the Lord. They can't help but share their joy in the gospel as they are filled with the Love of the Lord for each other and for everyone who comes in to the Mormon Trail Center as well as strangers they meet. 

 This sweet sister is angelic.
 This is Sis. B. She loves the Savior and loves to share her thankfulness for her blessings. She is best known for reminding others that they need to listen to the thoughts that help them feel happy and ignore the thoughts that cause them to feel discouraged. 
 Berries at the Kanesville Tabernacle.

It's wonderful to be missionaries and wonderful to have a warm, comfortable place to find shelter from the storm. (the gospel of Jesus Christ is the warm, comfortable place to find shelter from the "storms of life").
