Hola Hermanos y Hermanas!For my friends who have served a mission, is Chair Soccer a thing other places or just here? It's basically a bunch of missionaries kicking a soccer ball in a gym while trying to guard their fold up chairs and hit other peoples. It's kinda fun. It's funny when the ball gets stuck in the ceiling!

I can't beileve I've been in Washington six weeks! If you have been on a mission, you understand, Time doesn't exist.
This week we got to teach Santiago finally! He has been in California for month, but he took his Book of Mormon and has been reading it. When we asked him what his expectations are he just said he was hungry to know more. WE HAVE THE BREAD. THE LIVING WATER. CHIRST WILL HELP YOU. Basically the best. He has been reading and praying and asking. He's searching. He came to Sacrament Meeting and He said he felt good. We might have to refer him to the English Elders though. But he is wonderful. He's currently preparing for the.
José received the priesthood this week! He is really happy. I've prolly told you this, but every time we teach him, he teaches us. He's fantastic. And he is a great fellow-shipper for Aldo! Those two are buds now. Aldo is getting baptized on the 30th and he is so excited. You can see the change in him. He loves Christ and we are so happy for him.
Rosario wasn't able to come to church because she was working. She wasn't able to read either because of her baby twin girls. We are trying so hard to work with her, but it's a struggle. She knows it's true, just not acting. We love her and she said she would try harder this week. She downloaded the app so hopefully that will help.
Hermana Cortez wants me to tell you that she was telling a story about the Cartels and when I asked her who them were she said, "You don't know who the Cartels are?" and then I replied, "I know who the Kardacions are!" Apparently that was funny to her.
Love you all and hope all is well in Zion. Nos Vemos!

Hola! Como Estan mis amigos?Weeks go by so fast. It's crazy. Transfer Calls are tonight too. I can't believe I've been in Washington for six weeks! Like what is life. It feels like It has only been like 2 weeks. This week we had dinner with some really cute member families! I love going to member homes. You can always feel the spirit so strong. It's just goals. The spirit is such a real thing. Jose told us the other day that he has never felt so much comfort in his life than he does now. He gets it and it's so great. Aldo was in California this week so we weren't able to teach him, but he came to church ! AND DORICEL AND VICTOR CAME TO CHURCH. Oh my we were so happy! They seemed to really like it. We are teaching them again this week. Pray for them to understand the scriptures because they are having a really hard time reading because they don't understand what is going on.

I hope everyone had a wonderful New Year! I challenge you to set some goals on how you can come closer to Christ this year. My Goal is to trust in him to give me what to say so I can talk with everyone! A whole year to be a missionary. I'm so excited! (Every member a missionary!)To start of the New Year we had the Baptism of Jose! He is really so sweet. He knows so much about the gospel already! Every time we taught him I felt like he was teaching me more than we of him. He is awesome. After he received the Holy Ghost yesterday he shoke our hands on the way back to his seat. I can not describe the look of love in his eyes. The gospel of Jesus Christ is so real. The love that he has for every single one of us is so strong.
