Merry Christmas everyone! I hope you've all been good! This last week has been pretty good but there's not a whole lot to say about it. We got moved in to our new apartment and we've been doing a lot of finding this week since we haven't had much to work with. We had an awesome zone conference on Friday and then the branch Christmas party right after which was a lot of fun. There were TONS of people there, and best of all, I got to sit on Santa's lap!

The people we are working most closely with right now are the Contreras family. They have been inactive for a few years, and two of their children are unbaptized. They are an awesome family and have the desire to get their faith back. The two kids that we are working with are Evelyn (9) and Roberto (8). They are excited to learn and are reading the Book of Mormon together! The hold-up right now is the father, who got offended a few years back and is still a little bit hesitant. He's a great guy though and, with time, I'm confident they'll become fully active again. We had some powerful lessons with them earlier this week and they came to the Christmas party!

Also, everything is still looking good for Sandra to get baptized on the 26th! She has already become a good part of the branch and made a lot of friends. She was even serving food at the party on Friday! I'm really excited to see her be baptized.

I don't think there's much else to mention from this last week. This week should be a lot of fun! I miss you all and wish you a Merry Christmas!
