That’s cool that our house is a big social place. it sounds like there is a party every night there. And the family Christmas party sounded really good. Thats super funny that Ashton was Santa. And it’s good to here that you have all provided an environment where Edgen, if that’s how you spell his name, could feel the Spirit.

Right now the Rama (branch) and missionary work are doing really well. Typically, this time of year the work is a little down because everyone, all the natives, take advantage of the tourist season and work all day. There are a lot of white people here right now. It’s a little weird to see people a lot taller than me that speak English. but we are doing well. Over here it really just feels like any other day of the year because it is still hot and really sunny. but every now and then I hear Christmas music in the street and realize that it is snowing and super cold up there in Utah. Right now going back to the cold doesn’t sound very fun. I love the heat now and I love to sweat. It’s weird how I like it now, but I am used to it.
I love this time of year thinking about the birth of Christ. Right now I am studying his life and it was amazing how he did everything! I am in awe when I read about some of the the miracles that he performed. But then I take a step back and think – He created the universe and created many worlds before He created ours. He already had a lot of experience as a creator. So to him those were small acts of service and love. He always turned outward to help others. I love my Savior and Redeemer. My most important treasure that I have is to know that he lives and loves me. Thanks for all your love and support! Enjoy this Christmas!!
Love you all!
P.S. Here is a picture of me at a view of the beach and the other of one of the most famous foods here in Oaxaca: the beloved Talayuda.
