Happy New Years!

Happy New Years! New Years was a lot like Christmas. Dinner at night and lots of fireworks. We got permission to stay out until 1030 and eat dinner with a member. It was pretty fun. New years day there was no one in the streets. It was empty. It was super weird. We had two investigators come to church yesterday. One we found last week, his name is Mauricio. He is 17 years old and is atheist but he is really interested in the church. He had a really good experience at church and wants to learn more. We are really excited about him. We also found two families this week that weren't able to make it out to church but both of these families fathers passed away within a year. We are super excited to teach them about the plan of salvation. We really need to get them to go to church. That is such a hard thing to do here- to get people to go to church. We have a member that on most Sundays helps us with transportation and we leave our pension at 7 and we go and try to pick up all our investigators but when we don't have him we have to do a lot of walking and then take a bus for like 10 minutes. It is really hard because it is super early and then it costs a bit of money and it takes time. Emanuel who was baptized a few weeks ago, received the priesthood and I got to pass the Sacrament with him yesterday! It was awesome! He is an awesome kid. Pray for Mauricio and Natalia and her family. Thanks for everything. Love and miss you all!

This was a huge rain storm in the morning.

This is where I write every week. There are a ton of abandoned cars in the streets like this.

family! Thanks for everything! Love and miss you all!
