On Wednesday we had a missionary activity in the Stake Center here is Piedras Negras. We spent the whole day inviting people to go, and we had quite a few people go. Not as much as we were hoping for, but as much as we were expecting. The activity was Chritmas related, and consited of many Christmas hymns, videos and small messages. The activity started with the missionaries entering the room singing Joy to the World, but unfortunately they didnt tell us that we were starting so only about half of us went in when it was time. I was not one of them. The rest of the activity went well though. The messages were good, the hymns were good, I was happy with it. Then we ate some cookies afterwards.
Then on Thursday, we did divisions with some of the young men in the ward for an hour and a half. Elder Martinez was with Alexander. He is going to send in his missionary papers soon, and I was with Juan. He is only 16, so he still has a few years before he goes on a mission, but I had a really good time. We went to contact a few refferals, but none of them were home, so we just ended up doing some contacts. He was pretty nervous, but we had a good time.
The next day we had our ward Chritmas party. It was a lot of fun! We ate chickena and some desserts and candy and stuff. And it was really cool because a few of our investigators and some less active members that we are teaching went as well. The primary acted out the nativity, and we had a few piñatas as well. It was a really good activity.
Then the next day I did divisions with my district leader Elder Ashby. He is from Utah (surprise surprise) and is super sweet. We had a really good day with a lot of success. We had a good time talking because we like a lot of the same things. Like guitar and music and a bunch of other stuff.
Yesterday was really cool as well. A lot of our investigators have left town for the Christmas season, so unfortunately only one was able to go to church with us. But we were still really happy that he was able to go. Yesterday was the Primary program in the ward. It was really good. About the same as a Primary Program back home but with less kids. Also none of the kids started to cry so I guess that was a pretty big difference as well.
Other than that it was a normal week I guess. I am having a blast, and I am super excited that Christmas is only a few days away!
