December 15, 2014

HOLA!  Hey!! How is everything going?? Everything here is going great.  It is starting to get a little colder but it is not too bad. It has rained a few times in the last couple weeks and it has snowed once on Saturday, but only for a few minutes.  On Sunday we woke up to a little bit on our grass but it was gone by the time we left for church. I am pretty sure this is not going to be a white Christmas here at all. Mainly because it doesn't get cold enough and it doesn't rain or snow here much either! On Saturday it was raining really hard and we were walking around in one of the trailer parks. By the time we got back we were soaked. I hope everything is going great! And I hope that your week is great and remember the TRUE meaning of Christmas and make it the most important part of this Christmas season as well as your life!! 
Love ya

To answer your questions, yes we are hoping on skyping Christmas morning, but I am not for sure what time we are going to be calling though, sorry. I am going to send my Christmas package for you guys in the next couple of days so just be looking for it around Friday or Saturday. Everything is going great here, The Spanish is coming better and I am being more able to understand and talk. We decided for me to start the lessons so it doesn't get too off subject and I get completely lost. The investigators that we have are doing really good. We have 2 really great investigators and are super excited to see how they are going to do! I am sending a letter with a lot of detail in the package like you asked for!!

Hey! To answer you question, my toes are doing better. The infection is going down, and yes i got the packages thank you so much. About that families that you are helping for Christmas, the first family has a girl who is 16 (so i am not for sure what you could do for her) They have an 8 year old boy as well as a 5 and 6 year old girls. The other family has a boy who is 7 and a girl who is 1 1/2- 2 years old.  The other family, she is an only parent and she has 2 boys that are 5 and 6 and 2 girls that are 5 and 14. So really anything is helpful. Tell them thank you so much! 
 Yes I did get grandma's card! I will email her today and tell her thanks.
This week went pretty good.  We doubled our lessons from last week and the HE IS THE GIFT cards we have been handing them out like candy. They are being very helpful and this is like the best time to get in with families because they are always home and it is the perfect time to talk about Christ. We also have 3 new investigators so that was very good! It is also starting to get a little colder now but it is still not too bad.  I am still good without a sweater until the sun goes down then it just gets super cold. 
I was able to watch the videos of Holden and can tell he is looking really good this year! 
Love ya

Not a lot of information to post today, but I did get pictures :).

Hey thank you for the pictures they were really nice!! My toes are doing good right now they are a little sore but healing pretty good. I am pretty sure the worst part was the numbing shot they gave me. The pain from it was so bad!!!! I have a picture so i will send it to you. 

To answer your question about the families that I am teaching, there are three families.  The first one is the Familia Tarango. They have 4 kids, 3 girls and 1 boy, The girls are 15,7, and 5. The boy is 8. The other family has a boy that is 7 and a girl that is 2.   They could all use a little help for Christmas.

I am in the same area and with the same companions as well so everything is the same. I have no idea what to get Barbara for Christmas. Sorry.  

The week was super slow.  There was like no one home. Everyone was either out shopping or asleep from just getting home from work. That is why it is so hard to get in with anyone here because everyone is always busy with work or family so it is difficult.  But everything is going good this week and I will send some more pics too.

Spanish District

A less active family, The Tanrangos, gave them the tree. And we are sleeping in the front room because our bedroom gets way too hot at night.

Other District (?)

Poor Toes :(
