Felis Dos Mil Dies y Seis!

Naksa Pamaliki! Thanks for all of your emails and sharing all of your new years events! Sounds like Wyoming was quite a blast and that the snow is tumbling down. Yesterday we also had quite a freak storm. The dry season is suppose to be on, but we had plenty of rain yesterday!

Well, tons has happened this week, first off the best is that we had our amazing Christmas party with the zone puerto cabezas. Here included are some crazy photos from Christmas, and my comp in his turban. President came and we had a blast. He gave us a basket full of grapes and apples, which is a delicacy here, because an apple is 3 dollars and grapes even worse. He also gave each companionship a microwave, we have yet to open it, because we don't know what to cook in it, but we will by something today! After that we at lunck at the hotel and watched Big Hero 6, the first movie in a year. It was really good. Then we had a talent show, everyone in the zone had to participate. Our district did a swimming show behind a bunch of blankets. It was really funny, and lame at the same time. Then we sang some songs and ate dinner. It was a whole day without having to do anything, like a mini vacation! 

 We got our Christmas packages this week, thank you so much mom and dad. Elder Torres about peed his pants when he opened it. He wore the tie he got three out of the seven days this week, so you cab coclude that he loves it. He did not even get a letter from his own family, but other families of missionaries wrote to him to wish him a merry Christmas. All in English so I had to translate. Thank you so much for all the stuff, im going to get pretty fat with all that candy, and the tie is amazing. The best was the photo though, I love it so much, thank you. 

The sister of Chester our convert got married this week. They had quite a wedding bash. We just showed up and the mom gave us dinner, it was great. What was weird is that the girl is 15 and the dude is 40 years old, just a bit of a gap. They were all very nice though, and it is really cool to see people getting married instead of just living together.

Fast Sunday happened, hope that all of you guys love to fast as well. Luckily the rain came in and cooled things down a bit, so it was not to bad. But only 66 people showed up to church, so the rain put a little bit of a damper on the attendance. 

The best thing of my mission is the converts. We do everything for them here, it so so cool to see them progress. If you remember Francisco, he was baptized back when I was with Accordino, is the second councilor of the branch. When he was first baptized, he was so shy to share his beliefs and quiet when he spoke. This Sunday he bore his testimony in both of the meetings we had. He spoke with lots of energy and testimony. I could not understand him though, because he spoke in mesquito, but it was awesome! I could understand a few words, and he was talking about his conversion. 

New years was good, tons of fireworks, but all went well. A member got pretty burned up by his fire crackers, not to surprising seeing that ten year olds play with them here. 

Thanks for everything family! I hope that all is great at home, remember how blessed you all are, and love the snow!
