Well, this week has been full of Christmas miracles!

It was sooo nice to have the chance to speak to all of you and to see you was even cooler! it is great to catch up on work, play, friends, and family through a little phone call. I was really hoping to see Buster but then i remembered y'all were out of town.

For Christmas we went to a family's house and it was super fun. I think my tie collection has doubled in the last week and my companions is like octupuled if that is a word haha. but yeah, all the gifts were great, i even got to meet his family on Skype so it was a cool experience. The funny thing is that pretty much everybody down here celebrates Christmas on the 24th so we had a big shindig at a member's house on Christmas Eve and we all did presents there. lol. i think it is cause they just can't wait one more day. :) The food was great, we had chicken on Christmas that wasn't pollo loco for the first time and it was super good.

I really miss the snow back home. it is cold here but some days around noon we can still walk around with just a tshirt on so it isn't the same. and the cold just sucks cause then it rains and it's just miserable. at least if it was snow we could play in it! I feel like i am finally getting over being sick for like the last month so i hope it stays that way till summer lol.

We have been having a lot of success with one of our investigators and we set a baptismal date with her this week. We went to the visitors center the other day with her and it was the best! you can really tell when someone is elect because you can feel the spirit almost to the point of crying with them. The part i liked the most was the Mormon message the sisters showed us at the end. here's the link. It is a perfect message for the new year. I invite all of you to watch it with your families. :)

Tomorrow we will have a morning devotional for the whole mission to go over our goals and Standards of Excellence for the year. Last year it was a great experience and i am looking forward to it.

Well, I love you all and i hope that this new year you remember to look not behind yourselves and make achievable goals that will make you more happy when you achieve them.

Con CariƱo,

Elder Channing Winterrose
