- We have had a boil warning all week because they found E-Coli in our water! haha. So you can only use it to shower but if you want to drink it, boiling it first is a necessity!

Truro, Nova Scotia
- Had dinner with a family in our branch and they are both teachers, and I learned an important new fact: Canadian report cards are 6 pages long!!
- On Christmas Eve Eve, we went around town and tied scarves with light the world cards on them around town for people in need that don’t have much!
- On Christmas Eve, we had a light the world Hot Cocoa stand and had people write how they were going to light the world on Christmas Day!! Then we baked and took Christmas Cookies around to people and shared a message about keeping Christ in Christmas! It was so fun!!
- Jackie and Steve gave us Nova Scotia Home jammies and we got to wear them and drink hot chocolate and drive around town and look at Christmas lights while we jammed out to Christmas tunes!
- I GOT TO LISTEN TO REBA CHRISTMAS!! BEST DAY EVER!!:)
- On Christmas day, we went to church at 8 a.m. and then went over to Jackie and Steve’s house to open presents and we got to watch Polar Express and Elf and *drum roll please* MIGHTY DUCKS!!! Best Hockey movie (except for Miracle) ever made!!
- At Sacrament meeting they asked Sister Richardson and I to sing a song, so we did.. hahaha!! They will never ask us to sing a song again!! Sister Richardson is sick, so her voice kept cracking, and I kept singing the wrong words and the wrong verses, so in the middle of the second verse of Once in Royal Davids City, we both just started laughing and were like.. WE ARE SO SORRY this sounds awful, then we finished the song and sat down!! haha! When living in the life of Sister Kilmer, EVERY DAY is an adventure let me tell ya!
MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!!!
Can We See the Christ?
One night a grandfather was reading a story to his four-year-old granddaughter when she looked up and said, “Grandpa, look at the stars!” The older man smiled kindly and said, “We’re indoors, honey. There are no stars here.” But the child insisted, “You have stars in your room! Look!”
The grandfather looked up and, to his surprise, noticed that the ceiling was peppered with a metallic glitter. It was invisible most of the time, but when the light struck the glitter a certain way, it did indeed look like a field of stars. It took the eyes of a child to see them, but there they were. And from that moment on, when the grandfather walked into this room and looked up, he could see what he had not been able to see before.
We are entering another wonderful Christmas season filled with music and lights, parties and presents. But the glitter of the season should never dim our sight and prevent us from truly seeing the Prince of Peace in His majesty.
Let us all make this year’s Christmas season a time when we acknowledge the miracle that our Almighty God sent His Only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ, to redeem the world!
