Christmas-time down here, well, doesn't feel as Christmas-y as normal. Not many people hang up lights and houses just aren't decorated because most people can't afford to do it. I've eaten menudo and tamales more than I've ever wanted to in my life and I've yet to see a candy-cane or anything similar to that. It's still decently warm and I don't think I'll ever see snow down here in Nogales if I get transferred next transfer (Jan. 4th). Still though, teaching lessons and visiting families around this time is something special and I've definitely had my share of experiences.
As far as the work goes, we as a district have three baptisms scheduled for this Saturday and possibly three more because we're going to try and set a date for a family that's been progessing really fast as well. So in total we could have six people getting baptized this week! Juan, the investigator from my old area is one of the three scheduled for this week and it feels nice to finally see the hard work we did pay off. We taught him all five lessons and set the date with him so (even though he isn't in my area anymore and we won't be the ones baptizing him) I feel as if he's my first convert here. I feel super grateful and happy for him. On another note, we've been walking a ton this week. Up and down these insanely steep hills for just about every lesson and we are tired ALL the time haha. But all is good.
Well, that's about it for me this week. Feel free to send me some questions or anything if you need to about the Skype session on Christmas day. I absolutely love the feeling of being a missionary right now during this time of the year. May we all enjoy our week as we remember the birth of our Savior and spend time with our families.
