The Week of Christmas!

Well this week was a good and different one. We had our mission Christmas party on Wed. and it was a blast. We got to see all our friends and chat for hours (an take lots of pictures:)), play some sports and have an a presentation. We decided to do the "Haka" (I have the least idea how to spell it) it was a blast, the people loved it. 

Bus Ride to the Party of Natal!

Reunited with Old Friends

Some news that is good to hear, Elder Jacobson (aka my "pai" in the mission) headed home on Wed. He is now safe and sound with his lovely family. Pres went all out: he rented a mechanical bull, trampolines, and let us play soccer as well :) That was a blast!!! as you can imagine, I year without playing soccer took a toll on the legs..... and the next day was a rough one, for both of us, but worse for my comp.. 

My companion had a tough week, he almost didn’t leave the bathroom. He woke up on Wed. with a stomach ache, nothing serious. We went to eat lunch and he was struggling, after lunch we had to come home quickly because the goods were coming out of both ends........ :( we came home and he was in the bathroom for a few hours..... we finally got to leave and visit Euribes the only visit that we could do. 

We visited with Leandro who is the 1st counselor. We were able to have a great lesson; we taught Euribes, Leticia, and Laissa the Restoration. It was an awesome lesson, we were able to help Euribes remember what he learned when he was baptized in Spain, and also his daughters recognize the church of Jesus Christ on the earth today. Leandro was awesome an offered a ride for them to come to church. And they came on Sunday it was awesome.
