Merry Christmas!!!!

Wow, I really can not believe that this week is christmas... My second christmas in brazil, with super hot weather, away from home and family. It really is something you can not explain with words. You learn so many things and realize the importance of family. This week was a great week. The work in my area is really flying. We did a lot of stuff this week. 2 service projects, one digging post holes by hand using primative tools. The holw time I was just thinking about how we have a machine that diggs these holes in 30 seconds..... I like to work but I like to work more with my head then brut force. Had an amazing baptism this weekedn. Dacio is an amazing young man how is seriously an elect of the lord. His parents came to church for the first time to see the baptism and is was one of the most spiritual meetings I have been to. Everyone was crying and it was just great! His parents will be baptized soon! Other than that we are workin out butts off to be the example in the zone and it seems to be going well so far. We just have to give a little more attention to the zone and some specif cases but things are going well so far. We have high hopes to hit all of our goals this month! I love you guys and hope all is going well back home in the season of christmas! I miss and love you uys like crazy! have and amazing christmas with family!!!
