Merry Christmas

Dear parents and families,
We truly had a white Christmas this year.  Thank you for your faith and prayers.

We will have more people come to Christ this month than in any other month of the year.  Last year we had 7 baptisms in December, but this December we have already had 31 baptisms and over 50 since we began praying and exercising our faith together.  31 of the 40 wards and branches in the mission have seen a baptism.  Truly a white Christmas miracle.  

We have several more baptisms scheduled for this coming weekend including the wife and two sons of a less active family.  Our hearts are full of gratitude and joy as we look back on the miracles we have seen.  Our faith has grown, and we have learned much that we look forward to applying as we begin a new year in the service of our Savior Jesus Christ. 

Thank you for raising and supporting your missionary.  They are the greatest missionaries in the world.  We love them and feel so honored to serve with them.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Love, President and Sister Budge
