I wish you a Merry Christmas, I wish you a Merry Christmas, I wish you a Merry Christmas and a happy new year.

well I didn't think Christmas would come so fast but here it is. I don't know if it is just being in the mission or it has something to do with the lack of Christmas celebration that they have here in Mexico but it doesn't really feel like Christmas. I'm definitely missing the atmosphere that we have at home of Christmas.

So training isn't quite as hard as I thought it would be. It is a little lonely during the teaching because the new Elder still isn't confident enough to talk a large part in the teaching. It is something I am trying to help him with.

Friday we had the Christmas zone conference. it was awesome. we sang, played a bunch of games (minute to win it style), ate a tropical [I think he means TYPICAL] American Christmas dinner, the president talked for a bit and we had an ugly tie contest (one of the ones you sent me was in the top five , or bottom five depending on how you look at it). it was super fun.

we also had one of the families of investigators that we are teaching come to church on sunday!! it was awesome now they just need to come 3 more times and get married. then they can be baptized on the 18th of January!!!

well I'm making this a little short because we are going to talk on Wednesday and I don't want to tell you all everything before then.
