Hola hola hola

My happiness on a scale of 1 to 10 is probably around a... 15. This week was fantastic :) So to start off the Christmas festivities were fantastic. We got invited over to some less actives, the Giles, for Christmas Eve dinner and it was just a riot. I love being around big crazy families cause it makes me feel like I'm at home. The Giles family is the greatest, we've been working with them for a long time now and they are starting to read scriptures and pray as a family again.

On Christmas day we woke up and got to open our Christmas packages (Thanks families, everything is so so great) and then we went to our branch presidents house for a brunch and to Skype our families :) First off families, Y'all are amazing and slightly crazy, but mostly amazing. Haha Hermana Larson kept trying to reassure me that her family was crazy too so it's okay that they we're all flexing their muscles and making crazy faces. And then they started Skyping and I realized her family really is normal and she just said it to be nice. Hahahah I love you all so much! And then Christmas night we went to Hermano Chavez's house (a member) and ate tacos. Different than most Christmas meals but it was the best.

During the Christmas season the work was really slow. Between all the meetings and people being really busy, we weren't having a lot of success. BUT after Christmas everything just took off. We got a ton of referrals, lessons, and 11 new investigators. We had one person who we had a lesson with and they said that had lived there for years and had tons of missionaries from different churchs come knocking and avoided them all but for some reason that day they decided to open up and they want to know more about what we believe.

As for my personal favorite part of this week, it would have to be church this Sunday :) We had one investigator at church which was great, but the best thing was that 5 less active families that we've been working with all came. I was going to write more about how amazing it was but I officially have 1 minute left on the computer before it kicks me off.


Con Amor,

Hermana Pier
