Christmas here in Peru is definitly different, but i have loved every second of it. This week we were worried that we would be able to find any of our investigators and we were a little sad because everyone travels here, but we got to teach this week and they are all progressing. We are teaching an adorable family Christian and Poula and they have accepted baptism! All we have to do is keep teaching them :) they are a golden family and have desires to change. We also have two other sisters we are teaching. One is named Pilar and she is super sweet. She is 18 and here studying by herself and said that she wants to be baptised so she can have a happy future family, and we are teaching another sister named Mabel. I am so happy that we have been able to use this christmas time of year to fine new, and wonderful investigators!!
Here for christmas, most of the celebrating is on christmas eve (noche buena) everyone makes a ton of food, and hot chocolate, and fruitcake and at there are fireworks everywhere!!! It is so beautiful. We got to pass this time with our sweet pensionista Luzmilla and she made everything look so nice, and she made turkey! I was so greatful that she wanted to help us have a happy night.
We visited all of the members of our branch council to give them little gifts and share a christmas message and it helped us a lot to be able to strenghthen th leaders in our branch. They were all sograteful an even more excited to share their testimonies of Jesus Christ.
My favorite experience from this week was getting to sing hymns at the plaza and help cute families take pictureswith Santa. We contacted a ton of cute families and we are so excited to teacht hem!!!!! It was such a lovely experience sharing Christs light through beautiful hymns.
I know that Jesus Christ is our savior and our friend. I know that He was bornand that He lives again and that only through Him we can have eternal life. I love His gospel and I know that it is true.
Thank you all for your love and your prayers. I pray that you all have a fantastic christmas and that youcan find a chance to share a little bit of Christs love with those around you.
Con MUCHO amor,
