Happy New Year!

This week was pretty awesome! On Tuesday we went to the temple as a mission and it was great! It was super cool to see the inside to the temple and to learn more about our Heavenly Father´s plan for us, in Spanish! Then for New Years Eve we had to be back in the apartment at 8:30 so for dinner we cooked milanesas and mashed potatoes. Some members had bought the stuff for us so we are super grateful for them. Also, Elder Smith makes great mashed potatoes. I think it´s because he is from Idaho....

Then for the week end on Saturday we played soccer in the evening and it was great! The ward has not had any activities for a long time and so many are super excited to go. We had a bunch of members, less actives, and investigators come so we had many good games. Elder smith and I even scored a few times. Then on Sunday we had 4 investigators go to church: Carla, Hector, Analia, and Patricia. Patricia was a referral from a less active member and so we taught her on Friday and she told us that she wanted to go to church. So Sunday we went with her and her less active friend! Then Hector and Analia are a family that we have been teaching for a few weeks and they go to the soccer activities and to Church. They have a few problems with the word of wisdom but we are working hard with a member family to help them change. The Miranda Family is the one that let us use their TV for Skype that you guys saw and they are helping us out a bunch.

It also rained this week on Tuesday and Wednesday so it wasn´t as hot after that. But this week the forecast says that it will rain a bunch but that the temperature won´t drop :( this will be fun.

Have a great week!
