So this week has been great! We had our Mission Dinner for Christmas and we had Kentucky Fried Chicken! it was great! super funny. We started the program off with musical events from every zone, we had about 4 zones together in Mazatlan, so it was pretty big! The zones put together arrangements of Christmas music and sang them for the president, it was awesome, our zone put together three songs, that all tied into one. We put on Santa Claus hats and had red and green scarfs, We had fun. Afterwards we had games and Lunch, super funny the games and we had pinata's, although there were about 80 of us and only 4 pinata's so there was a good amount that didn't get to hit the pinata. Anyway, it was a lot of fun we got to take pictures and talk to all of the other missionaries and have fun!
This week has been great, we have been currently teaching a young man the lessons and about Christ, it has been, he loves music and guitar and piano, so i am teaching him how to play the piano and he is teaching me how to play the guitar. Its really cool. He has a baptism date this Saturday and Hopefully he will be able to go on a mission, he was talking with us the other day about serving a mission, we are so excited. I love it here the people are great,
So i am still in Mazatlan for another 7 weeks and it is great, still hot and i sweat a couple times, but its cool in the morning and evening that we get to wear a sweater but we don't need to sometimes. I love it here we were able to make a Christmas tree on our wall the other night to celebrate Christmas, super cool!
Its amazing the blessing and miracles that have come during this time of year, I am so happy that I am able to share the message that Christ lives and loves us, we are his children and that everyday, we make choices that show we love him in return. It's not easy, it's not something that we can just put aside, it's something that shows us that we can change to become better, to achieve higher to know who we really are, I know that this is true, i have seen people change from the lowest of the low to where they are now, happy confident, content, and just overall filled with Joy from day to day, its amazing to see changes like this. I know that we can change and become more like Christ and see his hand in our lives from day to day if we just read the scriptures, pray to him all the time and then go to church to receive an answer to our prayers. I know that this is true, find Christ this year, find out who He is. He is the Gift.
