Feliz Navidad a todos!!! 
It feels so weird to celebrate Christmas while it´s a 100° outside. Just doesn´t feel like Christmas!! The last two weeks there has been a huge feria ( its like a big farmers market) every night just loeaded with all kinds of food and fun stuff. Tomorrow we are going to set up a booth with a projector and screen and play the short Christmas videos from the church and pass out cards and do contacts and all- it should be interesting!

This last week has been really hard for my companion and I. The only day that we have had time to work has been this last friday. We had 8 lessons Friday and ended the whole week with a grand total of 8 lessons!! We have been traveling to reunions and violin concerts and baptism interviews that we have to do az zone leaders and then my companion was throwing up for a whole day because we havent even had time to eat lunch for 4 days. My companion weighs 130lbs and was fatiged because there just has been no time to eat or anything. So that was a bummer. And We were supposed to have 2 baptisms this week but we havent been able to teach all the lessons and some of our investigators have fallen back into their habits of smoking and drinking and didnt even go to church this last Sunday. I have been so frustrated!! But our Zone has had alot of success. This last Sunday our zone had 5 baptisms which was pretty neat.

We should always remember Jesus Christ and why he came, to remember what he has done for us. But this month we should especially be more focused on Him. It´s Christmas, not X-mas. We celebrate the birth of Christ.

Feliz Navidad to everyone!!
