This week was New Years, and it was super crazy. People have been exploding things all week. As far as I can tell, they dont really do many fireworks here. Just a lot of firecrackers and other things that explode and make a lot of noise.
New Years Eve was really good. But it wasn`t much different from any other day in the mission. The main differences were that it was super cold! and I felt like I was in a warzone with all of the explosions every couple of seconds. At night time our Bishop stopped by to bring us some dinner! It was super good and very thoughtful of him. So we are Ham, Potatoes, and Lasagna.
New Years Day was also really cool. Just about everywhere we went people gave us food! We got home super full at the end of the day! They gave us tamales, Menudo, Posole, carne asada, bread, and milk. We had a really interesting lesson that day as well. We went to go visit one of the families in the ward, and they had a few family members over. We were just talking to them for a while until we started talking abour religion. They were all Catholics and the discussion went well. We were talking for a really long time though, they had a lot of questions! But in the end, one of them has decided to take the missionary discussions.
The rest of the week was just kind of normal. It is getting a little bit colder in the area, but I like it. It is much better than the heat! But apparently it is going to continue to get colder, so we will see what happens.
Oh ya my companion and I are both staying here in Cuauhtemoc. I was surprised, because I usually only have my companions for 1 change, but it is going to be a really good one.
