Subject: merry christmas and a happy new year!!!!


Well family, wasnt that just the best christmas ever!! It was for me! it was so good to see all your smiling cute faces and to get to talk! i love every minute of it! I realized when you asked me what adventures i was having i couldnt really think of any because im used to peru now! But truly everyday is an adventure..i live in a different country and speak spanish! haha but i hope that you did see how happy i am and how much i love this experience and opportunity i have to be here serving the lord!  Well this week was amazing!! Christmas eve or Noche Bueno was AMAZING first we had lunch(pizza hut, YUM) and then had a gift exchange with all the elders, then we took around cute gift bags full of church materials to our investigators and people we know around town, that was fun! then we had a little lesson or family home evening with the family we live with and then had a nice turkey dinner at about 11 at night! then it was firework time!! At midnight EVERYONE does fireworks.. and i mean everyone.. and its the big ones we ususally do a mile away from where we sit.. but they do them in the streets!! It was soo exciting and cool to see it!! and they say that new years is even worse so were excited for that!! Then CHristmas day was the best because i got to see all your faces!! THen we got to go caroling in the plaza de armas with all the missionaries from Arequipa, which was awesome because a whole crowd of people gathered around us and sang the songs with us!  It was the best christmas i could have imagined away from home. Friday was my nine month mark....CRAZY i cant believe how fast time flies by... and i cant wait to see what the nine months ahead have in store. These past months have been some of the hardest, most rewarding, most amazing and spiritual ive ever had. I love my mission with all my heart. If i could give any advice to anyone it would be to serve a mission if your still able and if not, do missionary work!! help the missionaries, share your testimony outside of testimony meeting, and just go about doing good!! THere is nothing more rewarding then helping others become closer to our savior jesus christ!

Well one more thing i wanted to share is luke chapter 6, it is amazing and i think we could all put in practice all the teachings!! I invite all of you to read it and also to think of how you could apply it in your life! Well i hope you all had a good year and that the next is a million times better!! Set goals and achieve them!!!!(: 

I love you all and if anyone has questions for me or wants to know something that im not sharing let me know, just write me an email with your questions!! I hope all is well, your all in my prayers!!!
