Las Brisas - Week 19

December 21, 2015

F E L I Z   N A V I D A D ! ! ! 

Oh man Im so ready for Christmas! And im just so more excited that im going to be spending it here in the mission with all the people that I have come to love so so much! 

THis week was great! Our investigator Hans finally got baptized! But oh my word it was a process! It was really cool cause I got to see him through the whole entire experience from when we found him all the way up to his baptism and to infinity and beyond! Just kidding, hopefully Im not in this sector for that long (not that I dont love it- its the best!) BUt hes really come a long way, and now he is our Gospel Principles class president! Hes a funny dude, and our ward mission leader is like his adopted church dad and was able to baptize and confirm him. Its just really nice to see the fruits of our labors and to really see the changes that this gospel can bring to those that truely choose to follow Christ. 

But hey yall THIS WEEK IS CHRISTMAS! Also here its like 500000 degrees so it doesnt even feel like it- except for Peruvians have a real knack at finding some of the tackiest christmas decorations and then handing the up EVERYWHERE! Its great. ALso we decorated our pensionistas- Sisi- house for chrismas! It was fun she like our mom~/aunt/older sister. 

Im so excited for all the fun christmasy things, the food, the gifts and everything in betweent, but what I love the most about this time of year is that we get the opportunity to share the beautiful message about the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ with everyone. He was born in the most humble of circumstances and lives the most perfect life of love for us, for every single individual child of God. He gave us the most precious and beautiful gift that we cant get anywhere else. His grace, His mercy, and His love. So when we are opening up our presents under the tree we should reflecton the real gift tha was given to us. A savior and Redeemer of the world! 

I love you all soo sooo much and send all my love this christmas season! Enjoy every part of it and eat all kinds of fatty american yumy christmas food for me and Ill eat all the Peruvian christmas food for you!
Also go to and watch the video! Itll change everything! 

Love you all so much! Thanks for all the Christmas wishes!
With Love from Lima
