That much closer to SKYPE :))


Things have been good. It’s been quite a few days!! We went to the temple this morning and i love how i feel right after being there :) it’s a nice little refresher. I listened to the session in Portuguese and it was actually kinda cool how much i could understand! The first 20 minutes it was Italian and then i switched but either way it was the same spirit as always! But i am so excited for Christmas it’s not even funny. Like seriously Christmas as a missionary is really fun. It all depends on your attitude and Elder Johnson and i are determined to make this the best Christmas ever!! Here is a little summary of what has been going on recently :) 

I had a couple of intercambios this week and the first one was with my Spanish buddy Elder Trassierra. He's a mission homie and we had a good day. We mainly hit the streets with some contacting but had a few lessons with some less actives and they just needed a little bit of animo. Then a few days later i went with ELder Holt and he is from Idaho :) we literally had every single lesson fail us and on top of that, his eyes were flipping out the day before so i took one for the team and stayed inside all day sunday after church and took care of him while our companions went to all of our appointments :) it worked out well and elder holt is like one of the biggest mission homies that there is. I'm really happy with the way things are right now :) B3 is bumping hahaha. 

Yesterday we had our big Christmas Zone Conference! It was super awesome. President and Hermana Pack prepared a lot of stuff for us and most of it was about faith. Faith in Finding, Faith in Teaching, Faith in Baptizing, Faith in the Lord. They are very certain that if we increase our faith, we will see miracles. They also invited us to look over what we are doing wrong or things that we can change in our obedience and fix it to be able to see more miracles. It was an awesome conference and i felt the spirit so strongly! After, we had a wonderful cooked meal by Hermana Pack and then played White Elephant by zones :) it was a solid day. 

Elena's husband Angel came to church this last Sunday! We have an appointment set up with them tomorrow and we are going to see what he is thinking now about baptism. I hope that things go well, they told us last week that in the beginning of January they are going back to bolivia, but i wont be here. So he will probably be baptized in Bolivia, but miracles are possible and we still have a week and a half of the transfer here! Pray for their family if you wouldn't mind :) thanks guys!!!!!

Well, i love you all. Isn't Christmas time just the best?!?! I hope you are all enjoying it as much as me :) SHARE THE BUENA PALABRA and ILUMINA EL MUNDO CON LA LUZ DE CRISTO!!! I promise that if we keep strong with the light the world program, we will see miracles :) President told us yesterday that in one of the popular Spanish newspapers, it said that the LIGHT the WORLD video was very popular with the Spanish culture :) it softens hearts, invites the spirit, and makes Christmas time that much better! I will talk to you all next week, have a great one! WE CLOSE TO SKYPE TIME :)))))))
