Week 47

Another week down here in the incredibly chilly weather of Santo Domingo.... It just isn't normal to have a Hot Christmas but it could be worse. This week went by super fast but it was a good one! We were able to start the week out great and visit a new family we found a couple of weeks ago and then stop by and visit a less active member. She asked us if we could get her a Book of Mormon and she really wants to come back so I'm excited :) Throughout the week we had some really great lessons and were able to get a lot done. 

On Thursday, we headed up to Quito to have our Christmas Dinner with President Christensen. We woke up at 3:00 in the morning on Thursday to leave and got there at about 9:00. We learned some great things from the Assistantes, Zone Leaders and President Christensen. We then had a White Elephant gift exchange which was quite interesting. We were then able to have a Family Home Evening with them and we all enjoyed that a lot :) We then had to head back to Santo Domingo and got back here at about 11:00 at night. Long story short it was a super long day and very tiring but it was also super good :) 

On Saturday, we were able to have two Baptisms, Christian and Alejandra and they went really smooth which is always nice! This week we have 3 baptisms planned and are planning on getting the parents of Estiben and Alexander married :) 

Sunday wasn't as successful as last week but we were still able to get people to church and keep them progressing so that made the week good :) I really hope that you all enjoy Christmas and remember that its not all about the gifts. Strive to focus more on Christ and you truly will have a Merry Christmas! All of you that have missionaries out, enjoy your visits!! :)

Love you all,
