this week was great because of christmas!!!!!!
monday we had noche de hogar like normal
tuesday we went to our district meeting in huehue at around 3 and had our gift exchange, i got chocolate just like i wanted :) then at 5 30 we went to the parque to sing with the other huehue zones. we just started to contact people to tell them we were going to sing and that was actually really fun because the park was jammed packed with gente. and there is a giant tree that was playing christmas music pretty loud and sure enough when we tried to sing we had to yell at some points because of the loud tree. everyone was laughing and at one point we just started singing with the tree. it went on break so we could finish and it was really fun. our zone leader started preaching to the crowd and it was pretty hilarious. then that night we got to stay with the hermanas of prado because the buses to malacas stopped running at like 6 or 7. it was like a slumber party and apparently i was talking in my sleep....in spanglish.
wednesday we headed back to our area in the morning and then had to go back to huehue at 3 to talk to our families! it was amazing and i didnt cry! im so proud of myself jaja. then we went to our zone christmas party of making sugar cookies and then our branch president and his wife did us a huge favor and took us and the elders home to malacas because there were no buses. then we headed up the mountain with flashlights to our christmas dinner with familia lopez. we had pierna rellena and it was amazing. need to learn to make it. then we went to mildreds house the recent convert to finsih the night. the gave us paches and ponche which is a hot fruit drink with every fruit imaginable and i love it! especially the coconut which i have grown to love here. we headed home and waited for the fireworks at 12 and then we opened our presents! it was a great noche buena.
thursday was christmas but here the festivities were wednesday so it was just a normal day but no one was home so it was a struggle. we just ended the day caroling with the elders and visiting less actives and members.
friday was normal but saturday i completed ONE year in the mission! so crazy! i cant even believe it! sooooo fast. its weird to think this whole 2014 i was here in guatemala and its already 2015 on thursday! so happy new year!!!!!!
hope you all have a great week and safe and happy new year!
