Dec 21 - Feliz Navidad

Hey all, first of all a very Feliz Navidad this week to all! I love and miss you, and hope that you all enjoy this special holiday. I want to invite everyone to ponder a little more on the Christ part of Christmas this year and to do your best to have the spirit of Christmas which is truly just the spirit of Christ.

This week is all kind of a blur, I am really sorry I am super tired right now, and all I can think about is our mission Christmas party that we had today! It was quite the adventure! We started of with skits as zones. Ours did a funny one it was the things we were going to ask Santa for. Our part of the skit was the best (in my opinion) in our zone there are two branches and the branches have the infamy of being the hardest and having a ton of problems, so we sang a parody of Demons by Imagine Dragons to Santa about all the problems in the two branches to try and get changes! haha it was funny! other people did about asking Santa for more food or other things, but our skit turned out really well. Then we ate, and while we ate, we watched Frozen, that was a hoot, because I haven’t seen a really movie since last September! Then we played basketball all afternoon, I am so rusty, but it was so fun to get out there again! Afterwards we had a white elephant gift exchange and I ended up with a tie that has the Virgin Mary on it, so that was interesting, and then some elders and hermanas presented their talents, which was super cool. They did some awesome like country versions of hymns and stuff like that. Then, President-who we didn’t know sings- got up and sang an incredible version of O Holy Night, the spirit was so strong!

Apart from that, we had some success finding new investigators. We found an hermana in a part member family where her mom is less active that wants to get baptized named Gabriela. We also found a couple that owns a store named Victor and Leticia who are both just awesome, and are already reading from the Book of Mormon!

We had our branch Christmas party last week as well and the elders we all sang a song together in English that was cool!
Well as I said I am wishing you all the best in this Christmas season, have a great week and a Merry Christmas!
