Dear Mom, Dad, Lauren, and Ian,
It was so great to see all of you on our call! It was great to talk to you guys! It sounds like from your emails that you all had a great Christmas, and I hope you guys have an awesome New Year's as well! Mine was pretty good too! No parties of course, just a nice dinner with a pleasant member family. It was really yummy!
We had to stay in, of course. Thankfully, all the crazy stuff here happens after 10 well after we have gotten back in the house. But Christmas was nice. I'm in the campo again so things are much more relaxed than in the city. Lots of parties still, but calmer ones. And then the day after was back to work. XD We'll have to repeat the process for New Year's as well. Come home early the night before and don't leave until told so. XP But it's all good!
Well, as for what's going on in the area, we have a baptismal date for this Saturday! It’s an investigator from before me but she finally accepted a date! She passed her interview and now weare going to keep her excited for the baptism. Her name is Carlita. She's in her 50's, despite her name, haha. But she's really nice! She's really excited and us as well!
I'm really liking this area and the new investigators. I'm super excited to work here! The branch has a long way to go before it becomes a ward, but we'll do our best! The area has had a history of pretty dead beat missionaries before, but we're going to change that. ^_^
No news about the New Year yet or about anything special, but if anything we'll be called this week. And I'll be sure to send photos as well. The USB port here is blocked by wires so I can’t send pictures! XP Until next week! I love you guys! Thank everyone that sent stuff for me for Christmas!
