Thanks so much to all who sent cards, letters, and goodies to us this Christmas. We truly experienced an outpouring of love from the members here and at home, our families, and especially our Father in Heaven.

We had many miracles this week as we found several people who have truly been prepared by the Lord to accept our message. We have come across so many humble, soft-hearted people.

Exciting things are happening in our mission this year as we open up more Spanish branches and the first two all-Spanish zones in the mission. We still don't have a Spanish group in Richland, and we got a referral for a Spanish speaking family last week (we have an appointment with them today). So today I used my personal study to learn to teach a very simple restoration lesson in Spanish. This will help me a lot tracting anyway. Luckily, one of our Spanish speaking sisters is finishing her mission this week, so we are going to have her companion with us for the next couple of days. We will have a grand time teaching the family in Spanish. If they want to come to church, we will have to invite someone to translate for them.

I am so excited for a new transfer. Sister Lindmeir and I are staying here together for another 6 weeks. We have great plans, and we know that The Lord has great things in store for us.

Christmas was super fun. We had some really great experiences where people who had never let us in before let us in (the power of cookies and carols is amazing) and we met great people as well, like I said.

I know that Jesus Christ lives. He is our Savior. He leads and guides the church today. His Spirit is real and it testifies of truth to all those who honestly seek answers. I love watching people find answers by the spirit as they read the scriptures and receive a spiritual witness that they are true. I love watching the Spirit fill hearts and lives and homes as people embrace the restored gospel of Jesus Christ and live His gospel by faith, repentance, baptism, receiving the Gift of the Holy Ghost and enduring to the end. I am so humbled to be His missionary at this time of year when so many people are ready to learn and listen.

Thanks for all of the prayers and support. I love you all. Keep marching forward.

Side Note from Caroline's sister Lisa:

We had a great visit with Caroline on Christmas. She is very busy. This is Sister Lindmeir's last transfer, so she will get a new companion for sure in 6 weeks.We hope you all are praying for the people she's teaching, and for her in general.

Thank you all and Happy New Year.
