Christmas was awesome down here in Nicaragua. Here, on the 24th everyone celebrates. They shoot fireworks, and have parties, and eat a ton of food, it's super awesome. Mendez and I ate a ton and we chilled with our recent converts. I'm so thankful for you guys. Thanks for always messaging me. The packages were awesome, I loved the pants and the blow up santa. They were perfect, and I liked the peanut butter and the cliff bar. The real miracles were Sunday. We passed by everybody, to see if they were coming to church, but everyone was drunk, or asleep, or went to the beach. Even our most awesome investigators went to the beach. BUT, orlando went with us. He is a super awesome young man who is going to get baptized. Ernest, the dad of a super giant family went as well. He went to church alone without any help and he says that he loves it and that he's going to keep going. I'm so grateful for the opportunity I have to see people like him realize that the way he lives does not bring happiness. I love to see them change and love the gospel.
I asked him what he did today and this weekend, this was his response.
Well, we hung out with the zone today. We played soccer and stuff, then we ate at a cool chicken place. Mendez and I bought some nerf guns, so I'm going to take a lil money out for that sorry, they were cheap (his perspective about money has changed a lot since serving in Nicaragua). The Christmas party was awesome, I forgot to tell you. We went to the stake Christmas party, and Elder Mendez and I sang a cool funny song together. He's helping me sing better.
Keep being awesome guys, I'll see you next week.
