It was awesome to talk to you all last Thursday! How was your Christmas and weekend?
The rest of our Christmas was fantastic! We had some menudo after I hung up with you. Then we talked with them about Christ and his birth, I like to share 1 Nephi 11 when Nephi sees the birth of Christ in a vision. After that we went caroling with our district to some members in the Loma Verde branch. The Sanchez's are so nice! I'm jealous they aren't in our ward. After that we tried to go to Chili's, but it was closed, and then we went to iHop and the wait was too long, so we went to Subway. Oh well, the guy made me the best subway sandwhich I had ever had Merry Christmas to me!!! haha
I've still been a little sick the last few days which is annoying but it hasn't bothered the work too bad. Most people are out of town in Tijuana right now, so hopefully we will be able to find more people home after the new year. Friday was district meeting which is always a blast :)
Saturday we helped a lady move some stuff from one storage to another, it was a ton of stuff!!! But we had to leave early because of Yuridiana's baptism. It was awesome :) Yuri and two little kids from the branch were baptized. We helped a member named Haylie write a talk about baptism and she KILLED IT!!! She's super awesome, we love visiting her house!!! That pretty much took up our day but it was a good one!
Sunday we sang in the Loma Verde branch (because my comp Elder Browne has the voice of an angel). So we had to go to church at 7 (because our ride Elders Takke and Strong had ward council). That was soooo early!!! But it was fun going to both sacrament meetings, and we did a pretty good job singing "Mas Cerca Dios de ti" or "Nearer my God to Thee". That night we had a sweet lesson with Kimberley, Yuri, and their parens. Our stake president, President Dixon and his wife came and taught with us. It was super cool having them with us. He speaks amazing Spanish, and his wife is a native Spanish speaker, so she does too. haha We learned a lot having them with us. Missionary work is so much more effective when there are members there to testify of what you are saying and connect with the investigators!
Yesterday was cool, we went to contact some former investigators and both the houses we went to were super nice and told us we could come back! One wasn't even the people we were looking for, they were a different family, but we have appointments with them so that was cool!
Today we went to the temple!!!!!!! It was so awesome! It had been a while since I was out in Calexico and couldn't go from there, and it was the first time going into the SD temple. It's as beautiful inside as it is outside! The Celestial room is incredible. It was an awesome session! Plus I got to go with my boy Elder Takke :)
How was your week?? Let me know how everything is going!
