Well this week was a super great one! I sure loved seeing the family via skype! That was the best present ever! ... and then there is the Peanut Butter that mom sent that is a close second... :)
So you are probably all wanting to know how Christmas is here! SO they like to treat the 24th as Christmas here! So basically they set off fireworks ALL day!! And then they all set off UN MONTON (a ton) at ! It scared my companion and I out of our pants! They say it will be worse this week with New Years... At least this time I will be prepared!! ;) They also make a ton of tamales!! I don´t think anyone here really likes them that much, they mostly just eat a ton because it is tradition! We ended up eating tamales at 2 appointments, and then we were give a total of 6 tamales from 2 different families! But to top that we also had a lunch and dinner appointment on the 24th! So no worries, I got plenty of food!! They also all get new outfits and get all dressed up on the 24th! They open presents at and then all sleep in! But then on Christmas day, they just eat and eat and eat tamales! I never thought I would get sunburnt on Christmas!! Also didn´t think I would ever eat a hamburger on Christmas... That is another story!
Sooo Christmas aside, we had a really great week! Full of lots of new investigators! We found a family of 10 people over the age of 9 in on of the fincas (where all the bananas are)! There were more kids under the age of 9 too! We just couldnt count them because they were constantly moving! :)
We also taught Marisol! She is wonderful! She really does understand what we teach her! We have been visiting her family for over a month. Initially the other members were interested, but now she is the one progressing! She just has a problem with gambling...
So last p-day we spent in Morales with the zone! It was super fun! It was great to just goof off :) Pictures to come! :)
Ponderizing: Alma 17:10-11. I love this story! I just love the story of Alma and the Sons of Mosiah. But these verses are wonderful. It talks about being patient during our trials, and God can use us as an instrument in his hands. As missionaries that is our goal. To be an instrument in God´s hands.
Love you all so much! Enjoy your New Year!!
