Well this week has been pretty good! OF COURSE it was Great! it was Christmas, Even though it did not feel like it. its just not like mesa, no lights no big decorations and it was not cold, until after Christmas. The day of Christmas it was cold, and windy then the next 3 days it was just chilly and our apt was very cold, and we both didn't sleep good one of the nights, and then I finally took the time to get the heater working. it  is ancient but I got the pilot lit and it works now, its just that you have to manually turn it on and off. but its now very warm in the apt. this morning we did a deep clean, it was pretty dirty. but it was good. and now I feel a lot better. I'm Tired of being stuffed. Everywhere we went this week everyone wanted to give us food. and then we went out to eat with some members and el Hermano, just likes to stuff us and ordered more things for me right before the lady left. and then what else. The Familia ***, we skyp'd there and ate both days. They like to give us lots of food.

What else happened this week. So we Found a new family. Well we found part last week and we found the other part this week. *** is an 11 year old and we talked to his mom and she said that he could go to church, she is pregnant and just is not super interested but we have permission to teach and help him. But after we dropped Leo off on Sunday we stepped inside and had a lesson with them. it was good. it was hard to teach sometimes because there were 6 people ranging from just got out of jail, and then to teenagers who know nothing and then the parents who are super interested and leo who is pretty innocent and young.  So we taught them the plan and it was a longer lesson and it was hard, but we got through and it was good to see how it doesn't matter who you are or what you do and what you have been through, the Plan God has for us is perfect and we get to choose our path! its that simple.

Nothing much new other than that. the area is going good, were finding a lot and contacting a lot, but things should settle down for this week, and then be busy for transfers next week and then back to normal. But other than that its all good. New years we will be put into our apartment early to do planning... joy.... and then I think that's it for this week!

I love you all and hope you have a great week! Its was awesome to Talk/Skype with you all this week :) I love this time of year. I Hope you all Had a great Christmas and Hope you have a great New Year!
