Hey everyone!! How is everything going back in Utah?! Getting cold I will bet!

About the most exciting thing that has happened this past week has been the upcoming transfer call information. Apart from that, it has been a really good week her in the WKM!
As far as transfers.................. My companion, Elder Abbott...has been called as a Zone Leader for the Walla Walla Zone, in Walla Walla. And I am staying here to receive another trainer and to head my area. Oo This was absolutely crazy news. As my companion said, it has been the craziest transfer as of yet.
The funny thing is that his father (trainer) stopped at District Leader. Now abbot said that he will stop at Zone Leader, an I will continue on as a Area President. We'll see how accurate that will go!
So I will be loosing my Companion this Wednesday.... Then I will get to take control over my area, and work with another companion who will be the new District Leader!! WHOOO!.......I'm going to go crazy!!! XD
I am defiantly nervous to get started. A lot of the investigators I have felt are moving into such a perfect position to get to where they need to be. I feel it just might take more time with a new companion taking the lead. But I know that Elder Larson (my new companion), will and is the person that I need to be with for this upcoming transfer!
More to come later on this matter. But defiantly some fun stuff that will be happening in the next little bit!!

CHRISTMAS!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D I am so happy for this time of the year! Last night, We all got together and went caroling through our old Highlander apartments. I think that we made the life of one of the doors that we knocked! Song is defiantly an amazing thing that really can bring the spirit! That is one of the reasons that I love to share it with the world. And I just hope that I don't make other people's ears bleed.  
In this past week was also our Christmas Zone Conference. Where we got to hear some AWESOME speakers and songs and stories. As well as have an amazing lunch with our whole area. It was a lot of fun! And one of the highlights of the Christmas Zone Conferences is being able to watch a move. Like a real movie! Before they announced it, we thought that it was going to be Ephriam's rescue...but it wasn't! It happened to be Monsters University. Which was fun!

The language is still a pretty good-sized object in my way. Everyday, I am trying to read a bit in the Book of Mormon in Spanish. Some days it's hard, but the moment that I break my barrier, everything gets easier and faster.

I hope that everyone has the best Christmas!!! With Elder Abbott gone, it will be a little weird, but I am looking towards Elder Larson with excitement! And we have a lot of fun people to see on that day!! So defiantly going to be pretty fun!

I love you all! I pray for you all! I wish the best this holiday!
Con Amor,

First meal back in the US
Hello everyone!!!
It's not Christmas just yet but........MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This week was pretty fun! We actually had a pretty usual week for missionaries, nothing to apocalyptic happening during regular pros!
The thing that really made the week really crazy and fun was the Branch's Christmas Program that happened just this Saturday!!
Since I sang a song for the Thanksgiving program, and they liked it...I was put to sing about 3-4 songs. (I was at first working with a Hermana to sing the 4th, but last minute she got the confidence to do it herself). And to add to it, all of them were in Spanish...:p Some of them were pretty intense in English, now to add Spanish craziness to that!
So throughout the week, I was trying to find time here and there to get this stuff down. And some songs were practiced...and others...were more of a first time seeing them an hour before the program started. But that was more de to the fact that the piano part was pretty crazy, and the pianist was only available then.
The program went really well! All the missionaries were dressed in shepherd's clothing. Some given beards (had fun with those one's)!! And the activities director also pulled out the biggest donkey on wheels in the world!! It was super fun during and afterwards for pictures. (One of the Hermanas was Mary and my companion was Joseph...really funny to watch!!).
We sang (in Spanish): Mary did you know, His Hands, What Child is This, and No Greater Hero.

After one of our normal days. We walked into our house (which is in the downstairs of a member's home), and we saw some boxes in the middle of the room. They bought us a CHRISTMAS TREE!!!!!!!! ...really made my day right there!! A Huge picture of Jesus on my desk and a awesome Christmas tree. things look and feel just a little more Christmas'y round here now!! 

the week has been pretty good! I dont have too much in the letter due to some things I have to have done this day. (My family will get to find that one out!!). But I love you all! Miss you!

Happy Thanksgiving!!

Hola de kennewick Washington!!
How is everything going down there?! Everything is very good here in Kennewick! Lots have happened in the week, lots of fun and exciting things throughout the week.
Thanksgiving was great!! We had a lunchish dinner with the Branch President, President Hernandez. Both him and his family are really awesome and nice. And they really enjoy making both Hispanic food as well as American food, so we actually had a more American Thanksgiving, with a things here and there of Hispanic. So we had turkey, shepherds pie, potatoes, green beans...etc. Then you can add Tapatio and Valentina on anything and everything. XD We then played Apples to Apples with the Hermanas and the wife. ...not to brag or anything, but I destroyed with 25 cards..*cough cough*
We also had a very good branch Thanksgiving program. And now with that over, I thought that everything would be much easier and back to normal, but we are actually going to be doing the Christmas program as well. And now that they heard me sing my song for the last one, I'm now singing 4 songs for the Christmas program. One being "Mary did you Know," one of my all-time favorites!! So I'm always busy with the work, then with this program, but it will be a whole lot of fun! I really love singing! And the Branch is not yet sick of my voice, so it's a win win situation. XD
The language is still coming along. I'm able to get sentences a little better, but I still have a while to go. Both my companion and I are reading out loud the Book of Mormon. Which really helps with pronunciation as well as understanding and vocabulary. It will come!
The work is really growing here. The people are really amazing! Some are not at all open to hear a message, and others have been prepared. It still amazes me how amazing this work is! There are so many miracles that happen each day! Some in small ways, some in huge ways.
Filiberto is one of our progressing investigators. He has really grown a huge interest in what we discuss with him. When we knock on the door, he stops everything that he is doing and has a strong desire to learn more. Especially when friends are over, he stops like a movie, and introduces us, then voices out that they should really listen to us.
The other day, we taught the Plan of Salvation to him. He was really asking good questions and really understood the whole lesson. Questions and problems that we wanted to discuss were brought up by HIM after our lesson, (no coincidences) and many things were made clear for him. His friend then walked into his house. And Filiberto sat him down, introduced us, and started teaching the lesson we just taught him. (We had the little diagram of the plan of salvation laid out on the floor). Now through that lesson, we have another investigator!
Another thing happened last night while tracing. We were about to stop, when one of the last doors we knocked was an 18-year old by the name of Crystal. Who had many many questions about just about everything. She was more than open to have us return tomorrow to start teaching the Plan of Salvation as well. 8-o-clock miracles! Love em!
The work is going really well! I am really enjoying everything. The seasons are again changing. It hasent snowed yet, but it looks like it's on its way. I miss you all and pray for all of you each night! Thank you for helping me and supporting me as I do the Lord's work!
