Hey everyone! Merry Christmas! This last week has been awesome! We didnt' have a white Christmas but it wasn't too hot either. When we woke up on Christmas Eve it was 35 degrees which seems super cold now. Most of the days here now are mid 50's which is pretty nice. We have also gotten some fairly heavy rains lately too!

I hope everyone had a fun Christmas! We had all three meals with members and went to an open house at the mission home. The highlight of the day, of course, was that I got to call and talk to my family! It was weird to be away from home for Christmas but it was a great experience at the same time.

I don't have a whole lot to share as far as teaching is concerned. We taught a pretty good amount for it being the week of Christmas, but most of our main investigators were out of town. Things are still going really well with the Contreras family. The two kids we are teaching are really smart, and they answer our questions better than most adults do. They are ready to be baptized, but the parents are just taking a little extra time trying to get their faith back. If they will come to church everything should work out!

Thanks for all of the nice gifts and cards you sent! Happy New Year!
