|Multi-Zone Conference lunch on Christmas Eve with Elders Mehmetoff,|
Sanchez, me, and Elder Bradbeer. Best food I've eaten in Nicaragua!
It was so amazing to be able to Skype with my family on Christmas Day! I was so happy during the call that I couldn't stop talking and I wasn't really sad at the time, but after we hung up, I started bawling like a baby. I felt like I could only tell them about 1% of what I wanted ... ugh ... hasta el dis de las madres!

Multi-Zone Conference on Christmas Eve.

to unwrap our presents.
|Rocking my new shirt and PJ bottoms from Christmas.|
I was really excited for the Nutella and peanut butter!!
For Christmas breakfast, I had some Oreos with the Nutella and PB ha ha.
|Me and my companion had to go up to San Miguel on the 27th to|
help baptize a lady named Tamara. The two elders up there who were
teaching her were super sick (if you can tell in the picture).
|This is the home of our pensionista where she prepares lunch for us|
everyday. Her kids had all received socks for Christmas and
that was it, so they were super excited.
Well, we shouldn't be having any baptisms this week. There is one possibility, but it's not looking super likely, so we'll see. I am doing really good, all healthy, and the Spanish is fine. This next week will be our last full week before the next cambios. I know I will be leaving this area for sure, but I could still be staying in the Masaya Zone. Just have to wait and see.
Thanks to everyone for the letters and cards and emails and Christmas presents! I sure appreciate all the love and I hope everyone has a Happy New Year!
|This is little W. Her mother comes and cleans our house, so her family|
does a lot for us, and she loooooves playing and talking to us, and she
absolutely loved her presents.
|This is J. Jr. and his little brother. They are a super young and humble family|
family that we are teaching.
|This is the son of the family who invited us over for dinner on Christmas Eve.|
He hadn't received any gifts, so I was glad to give him one.
|These are some of the family of Hermana Glorinda, whom we baptized back|
in November. They are probably the most humble family I have ever had the
opportunity of teaching
|We baptized H. and his dad a couple of weeks ago. He is a super cool kid!|
He also didn't receive any presents for Christmas, so he was so stoked!!
Super great family and definitely deserving.
|This is L and she is crazy! She is H.'s little sister and she loves coloring!|
|She couldn't wait to get started coloring.|
|I had to throw in one more picture of the little puppy for my little sister.|
