An awesome week!

December 30th, 2013

So we had a pretty good week this week. The work was a little slow because some of our investigators left on vacation but we could find some new investigators too! The most awesome of them is the family Sobrevillo. They´re a mom, dad, and 3 kids, 7, 5, and 1. They are super nice, very respectful and smart which to be honest is something a little difficult to find here. They were a reference from one of the youth who had talked with the dad when he worked on his roof. They are both accountants and work in the house so they are almost always home too. They have a ton of questions which is great but makes it a bit difficult to teach sometimes. We met them Saturday, and invited them to church on Sunday, and the went! which almost never happens.. We went to visit them again yesterday and shared a video about the birth of Christ and talks about whats happening in the book of Mormon in this time. Then they had a bunch of questions and made us some hot milk nut flavored I think, and some sweet bread. They are really awesome and I hope that they can really recieve an answer that all this that we teach is true!  

Oh yeah, so christmas wasn´t too special here. We had permision to be out until 10 but when we got to the dinner no one had arrived yet so the sister there made us some fried chicken real fast, we ate by ourselfs then went home. Merry christmas. But there´s a thing here called recalentado which basically means leftovers so they have another dinner of the leftovers and we actually ate better christmas day than christmas eve. Wow, I think I might have gained a little weight this month though from all the food. 

My birthday was wonderfull. The food anyway. The sister made us sirloin stakes wrapped in bacon with mashed potatoes and gravy and veggies with garlic bread. It was the most American thing I´ve eaten here in México! Also, the brother is a return missionary from New York! Awesome huh?? From the city, but still!

So thats basically what´s been happening here. Hope you are all having a wonderfull week and have a wonderfull New Years!!

With lots of love,
Elder Warren
