Ward Christmas party and tamales

Hola familia!

This week has been a busy and very long week! We definitely have been working hard, and we even went to Xela this week too. I would have to say that here, no matter what Christmas music is playing, or even if there is a Christmas tree, without the snow it does not feel like Christmas at all. But I like it, because I think it helps me to focus on the work more. We have had more success finding new investigators this week and we even put a couple fechas or bautismal dates with them for January!

We also had a ward Christmas party, which was pretty fun! It was set up by the primary and all the kids got sweet christmas presents. It was cool to see how happy they were, and then we had tamales! I honestly can't wait for more tamales for Christmas. Apparently that is what everyone makes. For Christmas eve this year we are planing as a zone to go to the central park and sing Christmas songs, and give out Book of Mormons. They did it last year and a lot of people came to it, and it was very successful. Then after that, we are invited to Luis and Mahaly's house for a fiesta!

For Christmas, I think we are going to try to visit some investigators and wish them a merry Christmas. Then after that, we will just go to every members house and make them give us more tamales!

Thats about all for this week. We have been working hard! I hope that you guys all have a great next week and a merry Christmas! Con amor.
