Hope you all had a great Christmas!  Ours was awesome!  I'll start off by telling you all about it...

We started off the morning right: by studying the scriptures!  After studies, the partying began!  We headed over to an English member's house and talked with them and the English Elders for a while, then I got to call home.  That was awesome!  It was so good to hear your voices, and I was impressed with your Spanish during the Feliz Navidad song...  After that, I talked to an 8 year-old boy named L--- about ninjago (Trevor's ninja lego show) while Elder Elbaba was on his phone call.  After calls were over, us and the other Spanish elders went to a less-active's house for Christmas lunch.  We then took the other Elders to one of their investigators, where I was served goat soup!  It was super good!  Also at that house, I had an interesting conversation with a drunk Mexican on his couch...  We finished off the day by going to the house of another family in our branch for a traditional Christmas dinner.  It was a great day!

To be honest, the rest of the week was pretty average.  Not much out of the ordinary happened.  We had some really good lessons, and we were able to get a member out with us that hasn't come out with missionaries for a long time.

I did want to share with you one of the funny moments of the week.  We were talking with this lady and telling her about a lasagna that a member had made for us a little earlier.  She said that her daughter always asks her to make lasagna, but she tells her daughter that she doesn't know how to make lasagna because she's "not white."  It's always funny to hear comments like that, because immediately after them, people will get all nervous that they offended me...

Anyways, that's all I've got for this week.  Thanks for everything, and I hope you have a great week!
