Hello everyone!! Merry late Christmas and a Happy New Year!! (Just in case I forgot to wish you all last week..)
How was Christmas? Did you all have a good time? Christmas here was a little bit boring. Haha that WAS one thing that I was a little bit sad about for leaving the Philippines.. Christmas is so big there and everyone was so excited and we had like three dinner appointments set up so it was kind of a bummer to leave there RIGHT before Christmas, but that's okay.
So not too much went on this week.. We had our branch Christmas Activity on Tuesday night. We went to a school for mentally handicapped children and put on a few skits and all. It was a pretty good idea, but the execution wasn't so hot. But the desire was there and I'm sure that the kids had a really good time.
Christmas day was spent Skyping home (YAY) and then the rest of the day was spent with the members and such for dinner and lunch appointments. Not too much goes on on Christmas because it is one of the few days that the entire family will have off and usually they don't want to spend their Christmas holiday with the missionaries.. Haha but we did go to a few members houses for lunch and dinner.
The rest of the week was spent doing what missionaries do. We tracted a lot, we tried to find new investigators, and we tried to locate all the members in the branch living in our area. It is really painstaking work, but we don't have anything else going on here. The area is really weak and so we just have to do all the menial things to build it up..
Other than that everything is great! I'm just happy to be back in India and hanging out with all my peeps and stuff! I'm grateful to be back and serving here and I know that this is where I'm supposed to be.
