Chapter 52

So this week was pretty much an amazing week XD.  First off, i got to start off the week having an awesome all day p-day on monday where we spent christmas eve with this family here (the Call Family) and we did a talent show kinda thing to share our wonderful gifts that our heavenly father has given us with each other XD.  It was a ton of fun and to top off the night they gave us each pajamas XD.  So i got to continue my christmas eve tradition of getting pajamas every christmas eve even on my mission hahaha XD. 

The next day, as you already know since you kinda were on the other end of it, I GOT TO SKYPE HOME!!!!!!! So after i finished skyping we went over to our ward mission leaders house (Brother Jose, who is super awesome XD) and we had lunch with his family.  We then played some games until it was time to do the white elephant gift exchange and i definately got the best gift from it that you could get as a missionary.  So the way we did it is everyone took turns rolling dice, and if you got doubles you got to pick a gift from the middle pile and open it, or you had the choice of stealing a gift from someone else instead.  So i don't remember whose turn it was, but someone rolled doubles and opened up a gift and it ended up being toilet paper and a thing of chex mix.  And when i saw her open up toilet paper it made me realize that, "crud, we just ran out of toilet paper today!!!!" So when i finally rolled doubles i stole the toilet paper so we could have some in our apartment hahaha XD.  like i said, perfect gift for a missionary hahaha XD.  However, the excitement doesn't end here. 

WE HAD A BAPTISM ON SATURDAY!!!! WOOOOOOTTT!!!  XD XD XD XD.  It was such an awesome experience.  So to give a little background the person that got baptized is this 9 year old girl named Tiva and we have been teaching her for about 2 months or so.  None of her family are members of the church, but they are super supportive of her joining the church and encourage it XD.  So we were over at our ward mission leaders house, Brother Jose (and more background info: Brother Jose is Tiva's neighbor so we have been teaching them in brother jose's home), after church on sunday eatting lunch with him and his family when Tiva's dad, Jorden, comes over and asks us if he could get baptized as well and if Brother Jose could do it!!!!!!  So we are now helping him prepare to be baptized and hopefully he gets baptized sometime in January!!!!! I seriously love being a missionary.  Watching the change that comes into people's lives as they experience the feeling of the Holy Ghost in their lives and the desire it creates in them to become better people and draw closer to their savior is such an amazing experience to have XD.  THIS GOSPEL ROCKS MAN!!! XD XD XD XD.

Well, that's all i have to write on this week so peace out till next week!!!!!
With love,
