Wow what a week!!!! SUPER crazy and full of lots of activities and things going on. First of all, thank you for all the birthday wishes, I am so blessed to have such an incredible family and so many wonderful friends. It was a great day! We had our district meeting in the morning and while we were there my old ward Mayorazgo was having a Christmas party in the church. Such a beautiful birthday present to be able to see so many of them again. So many members I love and less active members that we helped return and are still active!
Here I am on my Birthday
Then we had a delicious lunch and I ate a new weird thing to put on my list! It´s the part of a fish that holds all the eggs...fried. It´s called caviar? Haha fried baby fish :) But hey, it was actually pretty good! Then my companion got sick and we ended up having to spend the afternoon in the room while she rested...but I got lots of time to study, ponder, and think. It was actually really nice. :) Then we went and visited another member who shares her birthday with me! Her name is Giselly and she is the blessing of the missionaries, she always wants to accompany us in lessons. She is the best.
Giselly and I...the member who shares a birthday with me and the gifts she gave me.
We also had cake at the pension at night which was super delicious and so fun. I am so blessed to be surrounded by wonderful people wherever I am in the world.

Then this week we did another division with a missionary from Australia, Hermana Funaki! She is the best and I learned so much from her. We also had a fun ward Christmas party that reminded me of those back home. :) Also a stake Christmas devotional where we got to sing and I saw all my old ward of Mayorazgo again! I saw my old pensionists and her sister and little daughter, M...! Also R...!!! She got called to be a primary teacher in her ward now...how sweet! :) So fun.
A great week and lots of Christmas preparations everywhere. Luckily we are so busy I haven´t felt too homesick. I´m excited to spend Christmas here with all these wonderful people and get to spend it sharing the glad tidings with everyone.
Please pray for my companion, she´s struggling a little bit since she goes home in 2 weeks and is having a hard time knowing how to handle it all. Also A... and E... R..., F..., K..., and that we can find new investigators. :) Love you all so much! Have a wonderful week!!!!
Fun pday last week. We went to the inca market. A cool statue thing and then the llama fur store. They have a bunch of them just full of fuzzy soft things...super tempted to buy a huge llama rug to bring home ;)
