Awesome Week! Thanks for the invites!

Hey Family and Friends!
Thanks so much for all the Birthday Emails!!!!
ha ill need to print them all out to be able to read them all and ill read them tuesday! thanks so much! the work has been amazing....our sector doesnt really have any investigatores but we are finding!!! never a time on the mission where I havent enjoyed it, We are working with the jovenes a lot, one joven we are teaching he is only 12 years old and his mom is inactive but we are trying to activate his mom and get him to want to be baptized. We actually have a sweet activity planned at 6 today! We are going to be showing the jovenes how to build a fire and then we bought supplies for smores. ha graham crackers dont exist here so we are improvizing with other type of cookies, ill be sure to take pictures! That one joven is actually coming and inviting his cousin so we are excited each activity one person more has come so lets hope it keeps rising.

Sounds like you are all well though!
other news is we finally got our house organized!!!! we asked one of the missionary couples if they could give us another table and a shelf because we didnt have anything basically and they hooked us up. Ill take a picture of our house as well. We are actually going to make a christmas tree out of cardboard for christmas.

This next week will be crazy, already this week we have been preparing the zone conference for our zone, we have to coordinate it because our zone is hosting it and 2 other zones are coming so we have had to coordinate the trips to the conference, the hermana that will cook the lunch, etc. But we are excited to see how it goes. We also have some other counsel meeting stuff later in the week so we have to prepare a presentation of how our zone is doing and what we have planned to do better.
With our zone we are also planning some sweet activities for all the investigators who are planning on getting baptized or who have a goal to get baptized as missionaries we are trying to get approved to go as a zone singing carols to these investigators and with that carol and visit we were going to invite them to a small activity at the stake center where we will be giving tours of the capilla with some fun acitivities of navidad with hot chocolate BUT we still have to plan it just some ideas me and my comp are creating. Lets hope we get something going! 

We have been finding a ton of news to teach so that has been awesome! we just are really trying to find people to progress. but we are really praying and working hard...I have never prayed so hard to find a family that we can bless with the great message we have. We have that desire we just got to do our part and let the lord do the rest.
Ha something super cool that we are doing with me and my comp and a little funny is we are singing a hymn in the morning immediately when we wake up to help us get going faster and invite the spirit first thing in the morning. Its working amazing and it puts you in a awesome mood. haha but not going to lie we sing terribly. I think its more that we sing super well but people here it bad. But try singing in the morning one day and youll see what I mean its hard to get the pipes warm;)

But hey what more can I say, loving every minute of the mission, I just have such a big desire to keep learning more about our heavenly fathers plan and how I can continue to help others. This is the best season to be a missionary. Thanks for all the love from back home, it just gives me that much more excitement for the work, haha and dont worry mom pictures from home dont make me trunky. But hey love you all take care! Get the christmas spirit going there! I think the best way to remember christ is to listen to some nice christmas songs and invite others to come unto christ ha.
ha oh yeah one more thing! WE PLAYED FOOTBALL FOOTBALL TODAY!!! with the whole zone it was the best thing ever haha send you more photos next week,
