Feliz Navidad Cheros!!! It was a white Christmas!

Hey everybody!! Greetings and happy holidays from San Salvador! It sure was a white Christmas here! (I'll explain later hehe).

This week was PURE CRAZINESS!!!  We had the Christmas activities this week so we were pretty dang busy. Wednesday we spent the entire day running errands, ran a missionary to the airport and got everything ready for the activities. I also had to get a radiography of my face because I have a serious sinus infection. I have the paper thingy that shows my face and it's pretty congested. Wednesday night we went to bed at 1 AM and woke up Thursday at 4:30. We had to be in Ilopango to get everything set up and that all went well. We got to the area and we had the Ward Christmas Dinner which was great to eat food. (We hadn't eaten for more than 24 hours not by choice.) Also Hermana Ana and Alison and Melanie and Sandra were all there. (All investigators.)

Friday we had to wake up again at 4:30 to go San Miguel which is about 2-2.5 hours in car so we had a fun road trip (;  The activity in San Miguel went a lot better than it did in Centro so that made us super happy. We got back about 8 at night and went straight to bed.

Hermana Melanie went to mini Soy and loved it. She got back Thursday and Friday and Saturday we did her baptismal interview and got everything ready for her baptism.

Saturday was Christmas Eve and we pretty much ate a ton a food. Turkey, chicken, Kola Shanpan and a lot of other foods hehe. I've gained 12 pounds in this area... We also did a gift exchange between all of us 4 missionaries that live in our house. I got a piggy bank that's the poop emoji and a pokeball and a cool fireman tog top thingy that makes lots of lights and a cool song. We stayed up playing games and Uno and other card games until 12 and then watched the fireworks then went to bed.

Sunday we went to the church super early to fill up the pila and we ran out of water...good thing Melanie is small hehe. Elder Arango baptized her and I got to confirm her. She is so awesome. Her mom came to church and also Hermana Ana and Alison came to church. We had 1 hour of church and then left to go skype here in the office then we went home and got everything ready for changes and we ate more yummy food. It was a white Christmas because we had a Baptism!!! Best Christmas ever.

I love you all and hope you all have a great week!!
