So this past week has been pretty great.
On the 24th we had a multi zone meeting and it was so much fun. We played lots of games and learned a lot about how we can better ourselves and come closer to Christ. It was awesome to see a bunch of my friends in the mission and we had an awesome dinner. So that was pretty sweet.

On Christmas day it was great. It’s a little different here because most people celebrate Christmas on the 24, so the 25 was not a huge day of celebrations. A ton of people were sleeping from partying the night before. haha. But I had the chance to talk to my family on Skype, so that was a new and awesome experience for sure.

Right now we have an awesome investigator. He is an 11 year old, but has a great desire to become a member of the Church. The first time we talked to him he had chains and earrings, but noticed that we wear white shrits and ties. He took out his earrings and this past sunday said that he wanted to wear a white shirt and tie like us. He is such an awesome kid with a desire to better his life.

Love you all tons!

Do you stay out late most nights? How late?

A – we try to return to the house at 9 but its usually 930

Mom – Is it pretty safe to walk around at night or do you have to be careful? Does your comp have your back?

A – I think it is pretty safe you just have to be smart about what you do. i hope so

Mom – That’s good you are being smart! Are you safe from cars and stuff…as a pedestrian? 

A – the drivers here are pretty crazy but you just have to be smart about it
