We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!!!

MERRY CHRISTMAS ALL! AND HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!! 
     I hope all of you had a super awesome and amazing Christmas!!!!!!!!!! Christmas #2 in Bolivia was a success!!!! It was an awesome week because everyone is so nice when we contact them! Everyone can feel the Christmas Spirit, which is actually the Spirit of Christ! I love being a missionary in this time and sharing the amazing message of Christ's birth! 
     So this week we have been caroling to contact people and it has been pretty fun. We knocked on one door and were so excited that we were going to sing a Christmas hymn that when the door opened we took deep breaths to start singing and...when we looked up it was a guy about our age. Well, we shut our hymnbooks and put them behind our backs. It's sort of awkward/strange to sing to guys our age so we don't do it. We later sang to a Cholita sitting on the curb by her house. There's nothing like caroling while sweat drips down your back, haha! :) 
   This week we had a rat in our apartment. After lots of screaming and running around with the broom we finally managed to scare it out. Now our neighbors mentioned to us that they have a rat in their house...hmmm. Where could that rat have come from??? 
     Anyway, Christmas Eve was awesome! We were able to contact and sing hymns and share the news of Christ's birth! Christmas day was awesome too! One of the recent converts blessed the Sacrament for the first time and it was so awesome! He had been practicing the whole week and his whole family (even the ones that aren't members) came to support him. It was so cool! Anyway, I loved seeing my family on Skype too! That was awesome! And we were able to teach people and feel the Spirit so it was pretty much the best Christmas ever! I hope you all had as great of a Christmas as I did! I love being able to teach and testify of Christ and His gospel! Love you all! Hope you have a great NEW YEAR! 
Love,
