Called To Serve
July 2018 - July 2020
Week 22 . . . Feliz Ano Nuevo!
¡Feliz Año Nuevo!
Well shoot guys it’s 2019! That is so crazy to me because time is flying! This year will be full of serving and Mexicans hahahahaha. I hope everyone has a good goal for the year (even though they’re all forgotten by February lol) because we can’t accomplish anything unless we put our mind to it first. My goal this year is read all the books that I have like Jesus the Christ and stuff like that, and of course not die.
Well, sorry I didn’t email yesterday! We were in Villa all day and then got back to Frontera at like 5:30 pm to go email and the cyber was closing because of New Year’s Eve! It’s ok cause here we are and it’s all good. Everyone here was out partying until like 5 am this morning and they’re just gonna sleep the whole day today hahaha. They were doing fireworks for soooo long last night too! They make this “año viejos” which are just paper old guys they blow to pass into the new year! Pretty crazy right?! hahahah It sounded like there were bombs going off last night.
Christmas this last week was the best thing ever! First for Christmas Eve we went to this families house and ate more food than I ever thought possible. Then for Christmas the best thing in the world was talking to the fam!!! Not gonna lie it made me wanna chill with you guys so bad hahahah. That was the best and made my day! Then we made cookies and it was a good time! Other than that it was a pretty dang slow week. No one really wanted to talk to us but that’s ok it’s the holidays and I'm sure it’ll turn up! Then this week we’re gonna have another baptism! It’s this joven named Alexis (a guy lol) who’s like 14 and loves the church! We found him about a month ago and he hadn’t missed a week so far! It’s only gonna get easier for him to come with the 2 hour church schedule. I’m super excited for the baptism, we started teaching his dad but he didn’t want to listen and now he’s been trying to talk Alexis out of getting baptized. Alexis always says “I know this is what I need to do”. Such a strong testimony from a 14 year old who has been going to church for a month! He is such an awesome kid. I am so pumped for him!
Yesterday for p-day we went to Villa and played soccer with the zona and ate tacos. It was a classic Mexican day hahahaha. Then on the way home we got a freaking BLIZZARD FROM DAIRY QUEEN!!!!! Got a nice butter finger and it was probably the best thing I’ve ever eaten hahaha. When we got to Frontera the bishop invited us over for some food and cake for New Years Eve and it was dope!
It blows my mind that it’s already the New Year! This will be my only full year in the mish so I better make it a good one!
Love you all!
