Merry Christmas everyone!!!
President and Sister Huntsman are the BEST!
Since last week’s letter was pretty long, I’ll keep this one a bit more brief.
We had a full week! We had 3 different exchanges with different companionships. For one of them I was able to go on an exchange out in Warrenton, which was super fun because I was able to see different investigators and members that I knew really well when I was out in that ward.
We were busy and had a lot of lessons in our area. Knowing that my mission has been winding down, I feel like in all of the lessons we have had the past few weeks, my testimony has been more sincere and meaningful as we teach our investigators. I am grateful for the chance I have had to bear my testimony of the
Restoration of the gospel for the past two years here in Virginia!
I’m grateful for all the senior couples in our mission!
We also taught the different recent converts in the ward a couple times this week and gave them some gifts. I will miss them!
Even though I gave a talk in church a couple weeks ago, I was asked yesterday on the spot to bear my testimony at church. I was happy to do it! I’ve spent the last 6 transfers of my mission here in the Fort Belvoir Ward and have really enjoyed my time working with the members of this ward!

I have loved my time serving here in the Washington DC South Mission! I’ve had many wonderful experiences, met so many amazing people, and have learned a lot. I am so grateful for the opportunity I’ve had to serve my mission and serve the people here.
Elder and Sister Bloomfield
I am grateful for this Christmas season and the time we have to remember the birth of the Savior, Jesus Christ. He is the greatest gift!
So many gifts come from Him. The gift of his birth, the gift of his life, the gift of his example, the gift of his atoning sacrifice, the gift of his doctrine and his gospel, the gift of his infinite mercy and love. As the Christmas lights all come down in the next couple weeks, I hope we can all continue to shine the light of Christ throughout the year through our actions and our words towards those around us.
I love you all SO much and wish you a Merry Christmas!
