Christmas and a trip to the lake

Hola familia!

It was sweet skyping with you guys this week! All I have to say, is that was the fastest hour of my life haha! I hope all of you had a great Christmas! I know I did, and thanks for all of the packages! I think I have enough candy to last me until next Christmas!

Christmas was sweet on the mish! For Christmas Eve we went to the Central park in Huehue and sang in front of like 200 people! We looked amazing because everyone was matching. We had speakers, a keyboard, and a couple of people playing violins. One of the Elders even dressed up as santa and gave candy to the kids! But after we sang to them for a couple of hours, we went and passed around Books of Mormons! It was really fun to talk to the people and to share something with them around this time of the year, that could bring more light and peace into their lives!

After that, we went to Luis and Mahalys house to party! We ate tamales and we lit off a firework, that shot of 25 mortars, which was awesome. We had to be in our houses by 9:30, but at midnight, Elder Perry and I went up on our roof and watched everyone light off these huge fireworks. I could literally turn around in circles and see fireworks everywhere!

Then on Christmas we went and skyped and just hungout with members and visited some investigators. What was really neat is that this Sunday we brought a new investigator with us to church named Rolando. He was an evengelico. We ended up getting to church a little early, so we helped the bishop set up sacrament and we left Rolando alone. When we came back, he was on his knees praying in front of the pulpit. There were a lot people staring at him. But really he was just thanking God, for us and for bringing him to church. He has a baptismal date for the 18th of january, but we still have A LOT to teach him!!!

Then this P day we went to this laguna or lake way up in the mountains. It took about two and a half hours to get there, but it was so beautiful. A lot of missionaries were saying that even this could be the Waters of Mormon. There were a lot of great spots where I could imagine the Nephites baptizing! But also, there is this huge edge with a waterfall, and there is this tree that you can climb out on and look off of the edge....... I know dad would HATE that, but of course I went out on this tree and it was sweet, you could see about 300 feet down this edge! Dont worry I got pics for this!

But other than that, we have been working really hard this week. We have 3 baptismal goals with 3 investigators, so we are really hoping they will work out! Well, I hope all you guys have a great New Year this year! Les Amo.
