Feliz Natal!

Hello Mom!

It was truly wonderful to Skype you guys on Christmas. It was the highlight of my week. It was great to see everyone, and that everything is going well. I must admit it was a little weird to skype. It was just like being there, like normal, just I wasn’t actually there haha! But it was great. I’m glad I was able to Skype instead of just a phone call.

Christmas was awesome! We had a simply wonderful member, who invited us over for dinner Christmas Eve, and also for lunch on Christmas. They made foods like steamed potatoes and lettuce, beans, fish (bacalhau), deep fried fish, chicken intestines (it was a little strange), and a whole slew of desserts. We ate A LOT too. Right now everyone’s exciting for new years and the all of that.

We are working really hard with an older lady investigator. She has amazing faith in Jesus Christ and really wants to follow him. When we asked if she believes that what we taught her was true she said she knew they were true from the very first time we taught her. She really is an incredible lady and we look forward to seeing her follow the Savior and change her life.

Thank you EVERYONE who sent me a letter or email or package for Christmas, it was simply a wonderful Christmas and I’m so grateful for all your support.
Feliz Natal!
