Sorry I didn't write yesterday. The myldsmail account wasn't working for a lot of missionaries so they gave us permission to write today!
Today we had our mission Christmas conference... wooh! We were only like 1/3 (mas o menos) of the mission because they are doing it by zone conference groups but it was still super fun! We played a bunch of games, sang Christmas songs, ate and signed stockings (like yearbooks haha) etc., etc. It was awesome! And we did something that my family does as a tradition (they stole the idea from me) and we all wrote what our gift for Jesus this year was going to be and put it in a box to open next year. Then afterwards the assistants made me go up and share about an experience I've had in my life from doing it. It was fun.
Yesterday we had our ward Christmas dinner party and it as awesome as well! Us and the Elders were in the choir and and ton of people showed up (including investigators and less/inactive members) and we were so happy! We even had to get permission to go home late because it was so successful and we were helping with everything!
This week wasn't too eventful, since it's Christmastime we don't have too much success as missionaries this time of year. So we've pretty much been walking around in the street a lot trying to talk to people. But it's okay, hopefully we'll find someone!
Well I love you all and hope you have a wonderfully Merry Christmas. (: Don't forget the reason we celebrate it. Christ was born for us, lived for us, died for us, and was resurrected for us; all so we can have eternal life. His birth was the moment that gave the world the hope of salvation. I am so thankful for the opportunity I have to share the perfect Christmas gift that is the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Feliz Navidad y prospero año(:
