Well, only 22 more letters from Mexico. Crazy.
This week was good! We were able to bring a family to church! Woo hoo! A mam and her three kids (her husband died a few years ago), la senora Silvia, Daniella, Manuel, and Roberto. It was cool to walk up the their house and see them leaving to get in the car and saying, "Hurry! We don't want to be late to church!" They are friends of a member in our ward and are progressing really well. They will be great members when they get baptized.
We were invited to a dinner on Saturday. We had a lot of fun and ate some good food. The family we were with are investigators, one of the hijos is a member of the church, but his parents and sister aren't. We are trying to fix that...We had to leave at nine, but it was fun. When we were at home, my companion wouldn't let me sleep. At midnight we watched the fireworks from our window and ate 12 grapes, one each toll of the bell. Then we got out our suitcases and walked around the apartment. There are some weird traditions here in Mexico. Lookin' forward to that midnight kiss that is tradition in my home and native land.
After that he let me sleep, and we had to get up at 6:30 to get ready. Yup.
I hope you all had a good New Year's Eve and have a prospero ano. I love you all!
