Tuesday we had lessons with Cynthia and Edward, our two investigators who had a date. They are doing great. Then with the Jilapa Family! They are an awesome recent convert family with a daughter who is less active and living with her boyfriend, who we are trying to get married. Then we just did some zone stuff and ya it was good.
Wednesday we didn't have a lot of lessons, we did find two new investigators who we committed to baptism so that was awesome! Then at night we went out with the JAS, or the young single adults, and went Christmas Caroling to all of our less actives and investigators!! It was soooooo fun!!!! Elder Mann and I were just killing it singing, and we actually went to a less actives house, we made her cry, and are now teaching her, her name is Alejandra, and she came to church this week! #WeSingLikeAngels
Thursday was another solid day. We had a lesson with Edward and with Familia Jilapa again, and we just talked about Christmas a lot with them! haha duh! Then we got invited to dinner from the Relief Society President. She is the best person in the world. There was so much love in her house and it felt really good to be there. Plus she got us cinnamon rolls because I told her that's a tradition we have. She is the best!!!!!
Then CHRISTMAS!! We went and got the font all ready. When we went it was gross there, was like three week old water in there.... So we drained it then cleaned it out. Following that we went and celebrated Christmas with Familia Jilapa. Another great day!! Then went to lunch to a members house who gave us stuffed turkey! Really good then we went to the baptism!! It was the best!!! Things went really well and there was a lot of people there. And well,it was a really awesome Christmas Miracle!!!! Following that we went and talked to the family!! Que TRUNKY!!! and then had a gift exchange with our pension and her family. Attached below is a picture of the gift I gave to one of her daughters. It's a huge poster of a selfie of Elder Mann and me!! Maybe the greatest gift I've ever given!!
Saturday was just a normal day where we had to do so much planning. But that was ok, we had a lesson with Alejandra and it was really cool!
Then Sunday was another good normal day. We had a lesson with Milagros and invited her to the 23rd of January and she accepted!! So that is super exciting!! Then we went to Hno Robertos house, now this guy was the old Branch President, Bishop and Stake President, so he knows everyone and their dog! So we took him the ward directory and went over all the names. He gave us like 20 families to visit. So this week should be awesome!!!!
Well I love you all and hope you had a great Christmas and have a happy new year!! The mission is the best!!! I miss and love you!!
Love, Elder Ludlow
