Feliz Navidad! Mazatlan (December 19, 2011)

Hola Familia,

Things are going pretty good here! We had divisions again in the beginning of the week. E. Lopez and I had a good time too. We placed 3 Book of Mormons that day and had 8 contacts! E. Ward and Rosales were pretty surprised how much success we had.. The main thing we need to work on still is finding new people to teach but things are starting to go a little better.. We saw Oscar (one I taught restoration to last week) and his family also during the week and gave him his Book of Mormon and explained some more about it. Things went really good with and I really love his family. We were supposed to see him yesterday but didn´t end up having time. So it will be good to see him again and see how things are going.

Yesterday was pretty cool because we had some thing were we sang hymns and christmas songs near the ocean. It´s at some pretty touristy part of Mazatlan and was my first time near the ocean here so it was really cool. It was pretty funny too because some americans were there listening to us sing, and it turned out they all were members of the Church. We did get some contacts though so it was pretty successful. Was fun to be there with all the missionaries from Mazatlan too.

Today for Pday we also went to downtown Mazatlan with E Lopez and Rosales. It was pretty cool looking around all the little shops they have there and stuff. I bought I tie at one of the stores and we have had a pretty good day. We need to clean our apartment this week and we found out some other information.. We´re going to get new missionaries in Flores Magon next transfer. So we wont be over 2 areas anymore. Who knows where they will end up putting me and E. Ward though but it was interesting to hear about that stuff. All I know right now is a trainer and a newbie are going to be in Flores Magon... Besides that not too much is new! I feel more comfortable with my spanish now but everyday I´m still having to figure out what certain things mean and learn more.

I hope everyone has an awesome Christmas. Things are going pretty good here and I like the weather right now. Thanks again for all the support, love, and prayers.
