¡Feliz Navidad!

     Haha, like Jess said, Im glad to know home hasnt changed at all. Falling chocolate fountains, crashing cars, loosing wallets and keys, and games. Good ol home haha! But I am sorry about your carola momma. And I am so glad to hear grandpas surgery went so well and is continuing to progress and get better. I think all he needs is a good cup of mate haha! And Dad, sounds like Arizona continues to impress. I love the sound of that! Well the heat continues to be blazin here in alvear. But the fan is a life saver and im actually able to get some sleep! Naes good luck on spanish final. Maybe we can speak in spanish now when I skype for christmas haha! Jordy, how was winter formal? How are you old enough to go anyway. Holy cow!! And where are some pictures? Tan Man, what sports are you tearin it up in now?
     Well here in our branch we have an hermano that works with one of the radio stations here in Argentina. And yesterday at church he asked us if next pday we can come and sing some christmas songs for the station and they are going to broadcast it on the radio haha! Except I think that im going to playing the piano, which is pobably better since my piano playing is much better than my singing voice! But it will be interesting how that turns out haha!
     Oh, before i forget to tell you, Im pretty sure I can skype at 12 here, so 8 for you guys back at home. I need to find out what time Elder Evans is going to be skyping at, but Im almost positive that it will work for me at that time!
    Well, this week was a little tough, but we saw many miracles as well. A little tough because we struggled getting into houses to teach. Cita after cita fell. But the Lord knows where he wants us and when we need to be there. Saturday I was on exchanges with Elder Cofer, a brand new elder from texas. He only has 2 weeks here in Argentina. But we were walking down the street after having an appoitment fall through. And this lady who was in front of her house calls us over. So we went over there and she asked if we were the mormons. After she told us "my son is a member of your church and he lives in St. George Utah. He has a strong testimony, and it really impresses me. Can you teach me more?". I basically was in shock and half expected to hear the words "Hallelujah" being sung from the heavens haha. She said I cant listen right now because i am leaveing to go to mendoza. But she gave us her phone number and told us to call her this week to set up a time to meet. Truly a tender mercy of the Lord and a great miracle.
    We had another lesson with Amalia and Emedito Muñoz (the 80 year old couple) that went great. Emedito read some of the book of mormon and prayed about it. We asked him if recieved an answer and he said "i have no idea" haha. So we changed our lesson plan and talked about the holy ghost and how to recognize answers from the Lord. And at the end Amalia asked us about church and what we do there. So we went on talking about the importance of church and about the sacament. We invited them to come to church with us and amalia said "SI" all excitedly, but Emedito said no. But Amalia was just like why?!! But in the end they ended up not coming. But they are super close and believe that they have been prepared by the Lord. They are just the sweetest old people ever. Amalia always trys to give us her chair, even though she is 88 years and barely stand up on her own haha.
    And Patricia is doing great. She finished the papers and will be taking our her turno or her turn this week. So that is when we will know the date of the wedding and when we can put a bautismal date with her. She is super excited!
    Well, we are playng some futbal today and then we have to get ready to leave early tomorrow morning to go to Mendoza for the mission christmas party. Way exciting! Presiente Avila rented a double decker bus to come pick up all of us missinaries from here in alvear and in san rafael. So that will be way fun. Basically another 5 hour party there on the bus haha! Well, thank you so much for all of your love and support. I hope you all have a great week and I look forward to hearing from all of you next week on pday, and expecially christmas to skype. Love you!
