Chocolate con leche

Good day to all.
Don't have a bunch of time but I hope everyone has a meeey Christmas
and that all can remember the reason for this holiday!
Also happy birthday to my older brother William on Saturday!
Also transfers see this week so stay tuned next week to see where I go!

Well Kalifa was confirmed a member yesterday and I had the opportunity
to do it. Always a special spirit seeing and being apart of something
as sacred as that. This last week he went out and bought himself a
brand new suit, shirt, shoes, and tie for church😂 this guy is legit.
We were taking pictures after sacrament and instead of saying cheese
le whatever he was like "chocolate con leche" and we lost it😂 because
we literally look like milk and he looks like dark chocolate. It was

Also he told us a cool story yesterday. He used to drink, and party
with his friends before we met him. One night, his mom visited him in
a dream and reprimanded him for what he was doing with his life
because that's not what she had taught him. Two days later, we found
him on the street. He made every change necessary as soon as he could
to get back on the right path and he's gonna be such a great
instrument in Gods kingdom. Sweet story (:

Also we passed by Elisa randomly while we had a member with us and she
happened to be home so we went up and had a little lesson with her!
She was sick and we were able to explain priesthood blessings and gave
her one. She was like speechless after, she loved it! She's super
excited to come to church this Sunday and for her baptism in February.
She just works so much that it's literally not healthy for her.

Friday night was the Branch Christmas party and it was pretty good! We
were in charge of the Living Bethlehem and it wasn't too bad haha.
Some of the members who helped us went all out for their parts, we had
Samuel the Lamanite prophesying of Christs birth snd he memorized all
of Helaman 14 for it it was hilarious. And he's South American so he
is literally a lamanite. It was hilarious 😂 I had the honors of
stoning him with paper balls with elder Reese haha.

Well that's about it. I hope everyone can remember Jesus more during
his week and make good New Years Resolutions that will help you grow
closer to him. It's crazy how this year has flown, just like that the
tunnel year is gone. But I'm grateful for every second I have to be
the Lords representatives. Much love to you all and have a great and
safe week!
