This last week was super good! It was really good to talk to the fam! It also snowed this week, and we couldn't leave the house on Sunday... so I'm less active in my ward for this week.... 

Also we had interviews with the President this week and it went really well. We talked about the zone and stuff like that. And also we have transfers tomorrow and Elder Moya, my trainer will be my next companion and I will be his last!  Because this is his last transfer it should be fun.  But I'm still a ZL in Alamedas.

Hello everyone, and happy holidays! I hope this week we can all stay focused on the true meaning of Christmas which is Christ. If we do that I know we will have the best Christmas ever. 

This week was good, but because I have a limmited amount of time I will tell you the highlights. 

This week we were contacting and found a young mother whose husband is a military man, and she is amazing, she listened to our message, accepts us well, and even said the payer her FIRST TIME, which like nobody does here, becasue they all are shy or embarrassed. We hope to see much progression with her, she has lots of hope. 

Also Saturday, in Casas Grandes all the missionaries got together and we had a lunch/dinner, from 3-5 and we played games, got gifts and sang.  We also ate posole and tamales. Super good. But that really put me in the Christmas spirit. 

Today I'm writing late, because we also did service this morning with a family of recent converts. They are carpenters and kind of old, so we got to help them make some kitchen cabinets, and we will be going back tomorrow, so service is the best way to spend Christmas week. And that's about it for this week..

Love you all and Happy Holidays!

16 Months

So i now have 16 months since I left home and that is really cool! It's crazy how quick time goes by. 

This was a pretty good week, it went by fast though, because Thursday I went to Juarez, and we had a zone leader training meeting, and got all we needed to give at the zone meeting today! It should be exciting. Today will be my first zone meeting and that's pretty exciting! 

But last week our neighbor was trying to light his gas heater and it caught fire and he almost set his house on fire. We had left the house when he did it, but came back to the house because we forgot something, and saw what had happened. Luckily he didn't get hurt, and we got there in time to call the firemen. So it all turned out fine. 

That's about it for the week.  Sorry for the short letter.  I don't have much time right now to write. But I love you all and hope you have a good week!
