How is everyone doing back home? It has been a pretty dang exciting week here in Mexico. We had cambios today and I have a new comp here in Frontera! His name is Elder Vasques from Peru. He seems like a pretty cool guy and I'm just super pumped because my Spanish will improve a ton. I already know it. My old comp Elder Albrecht went to be a Zone Leader in Balancan which is about 3 hours from here. It's going to be a great cambio to have Christmas! I can't believe Christmas is almost here! It is going to be awesome! I have to say that I'm so ready to call home! hahaha The ward here in Frontera should be an awesome place to spend the Holidays. I just can't believe it's December already and I've been out 4 Months now!
This past week we had a baptism too! We baptized a boy named Kevin who is a total champ. His family are all members but they became less active and we have been working to reactivate them. They've been coming to church a bunch lately so it's been dope! Albrecht did the baptism and it was awesome. The family was soooo happy which makes all the long days worth it!
We went to the Church last night to watch the Christmas devotional with the First Presidency. It was awesome to hear about the true meaning of Christmas. President Nelson talked about how we need to love as he loved and continue growing closer to Christ. Lately we've been doing the Light the World campaign and it has been amazing so far. Everyone who has watched the videos almost starts crying. hahahaha Talk about some strong stuff right there! Light the World is something that can make us think of others and grow our own testimonies as well as others.
Hoping I can have another fun cambio here in Frontera and that we can have some success too! So excited to see what Vasques and I can do. We're going to have a dang good time over Christmas even though it's still a million degrees here hahaha. Hoping everyone has an awesome week!
Love you all.
