Hey Familia!

How is everybody doing this week?? It is getting pretty close to Christmas now, is everybody excited?? I would bet so! Is the Christmas tree up and everything? Did you end up putting lights up this year or no? That is good to hear that Dad is about done with the car now, hopefully it will get pretty good gas mileage.

Yeah so we had a few problems this past week. Kayd's tooth was killing him this week, we didn't get to work as hard as we usually do. But he had an appointment on Friday and the Dentist took the pain away, he has to have his surgery this coming Wednesday, but he is doing a lot better now. We also didn't have time to make it out to Zacualpan this past week so no baptisms this week! Sad! But we talked with them today. They came out to Tulancingo and we went to Pachuca with them. 4 years ago the government took their kids away from them for some reason or other, but we are helping them get them back. They should have them back by June. But we told them that this Thursday is the day! They are going to come to Tulancingo to get married, have their baptismal interview and get baptized! We won't be baptizing in the pond but it doesn't matter to me, I'm just happy for them that they are gonna get baptized.

Elder Falslev and I had a pretty crazy experience this week with a little old lady!! We went to this house Sunday morning to take some investigators to Church and we knocked on their door and out came this old lady. She asked what church we were from and then started on her rant. She told us to take our lies elsewhere and to stop fooling her neighbors!! (About 10 families live behind every door) Obviously we laughed and refused to leave the sidewalk. She finally went back in and we knocked again for our investigators. Then she came back but this time with a broom stick handle in her hand. She said get out of here or I'll hit y’all! Oh man I couldn't believe my eyes. I would have liked to see that old lady try to hit me but we left without putting up much of a fight haha! Our investigators never made it to church, which was a little sad. We will have to figure somethin’ out about that!

Everything should be good for skype with the info that you guys sent me. Next week I'll send you a phone number in case it doesn't work. We will be talking to you guys in the afternoon. Our Church gets over at 1 and we will probably be baptizing after so I will let you know next week what time would be best.

Tomorrow we are going as a mission to the Temple. That should be pretty good to do after not going for awhile. I think I will probably be getting the packages tomorrow too. We'll see if I can wait till Christmas to open it up. haha That's funny that Dillon went over to our house to watch the game! How is he doing. I haven't heard from him in a while.

I think that's everything new going on. Hopefully I have more exciting news next week! Love you guys! Gotta run!

Pics next week for sure!

Hola Familia,

Well it has been another great week here in Tulancingo. Elder Falslev and I are receiving lots of blessings. Every day we see miracles together. Our Zone baptizes 11 this last week, leading the mission. We are happy to be out here, there are a lot of good missionaries here in the zone. Did I tell you that Elder Garcia is a District Leader here in our Zone?

Well to answer all the questions. That pond were we took the picture, yes, it is where we baptize in Veracruz. We have went out there once a week since I got here. Really only one couple is progressing. They are really excited, they should be able to get married and baptized this coming week. Yesterday they made the long trip again and came all the way here for Church. Every other week they come here and the other weeks they have their own little service in this barn thing out there.

We also were able to baptize Omar. Sorry I forgot my camera today so you'll have to wait for pics, but it went really good. I baptized him, he was really happy!! The water heater wasn't working tho so the water was freezin cold! But it still was a good baptism. One of the most miracle baptisms that I've had in my mission!!

How is everything going with skype? Are you guys going to have it for Christmas? I hope so, I'm not really sure how it all works. I did get that calendar last year. It was pretty cool, I remember getting it and thinking that I would never finish it, but now look here we are in December already.

That's good that you all had a good time at the ward Christmas party! Did Santa look any fatter this year or has he lost weight haha. That's funny that Lacey got a ticket!! I remember when I got my ticket!! Dad got so mad at me!! hahaha I was careful only to speed where there was no cops after that!! haha.

It's gotten hotter here. Sometimes my face gets sunburnt still, but they are saying that it is going to get colder in Dec and Jan. How is everybody in the family doing? I haven't heard much from anyone. Oh and bad news about the Solis Family. I guess the Dad left them. He has been gone for a few weeks now. I don't know how they are going to live. The wife has a job but doesn't get paid very good. I hope the Bishop will help them out. The wife and the kids are now really strong in the Gospel, I know that they will be blessed. The hermana Angeles called me on Saturday and I was able to talk to all of them. It was good to talk to them again.

Well that is all for this week! I love you guys! Thanks for the emails!
