Hey Everyone,

   Well I don't really have pictures i forgot to bring my adapter, oops. This week was great, we had a wonderful Christmas and i was able to talk with my family for Christmas for one hour. So blessed! It was amazing and we had so many opportunities to share the gospel. First off we all decided as a zone to sing Christmas carols in centro, and we had many listen and enjoy the songs. We then had a great Christmas day, first we headed to our breakfast lunch with some Americans that invited two zones there were so many. We had lasagna and steak and potato salad and just about everything, it was a good potluck, also we were right on the beach so we took pictures and just enjoyed being there. We also sang some songs for them. We then headed back to our area and worked a little bit and then headed over to another dinner who were Americans as well, it was super delicious we had Caesar salad and steak with homemade rolls, we also had homemade chocolate chip cookies, all of the native missionaries were eating those so much, apparently they were really good. I had flan. :) We then headed home and fortunately we had a wonderful party outside our house. There were 8 huge speakers and tons of lights, the music was so loud and strong that our windows started to shake and the floor vibrated. This lovely party lasted to about 5:30 in the morning. it was fantastic.

   The rest of the week was wonderful we had a baptism with a young man and he is amazing, just soaked up the gospel, and shared his testimony at the end of the baptism. He said in the first lesson he felt the spirit so strong that he wanted to cry and he knew in that moment that it was true, it was an amazing experience, he was given the Gift of the Holy Ghost Sunday and we had so many people in church it was amazing! I love the gospel, if you work hard and are willing to do everything the Lord will bless you. If you learn it, live it, love it, you will be happy i promise you. Feliz Navidad, y Feliz Año Nuevo.

Siempre Feliz,
