Well, the year's just about over It sure flew by.
This week was a bit slow as far as the work goes. Many of our investigators were traveling, or otherwise busy throughout much of the week, but we still managed to get 10 lessons in, the majority with members present!
The branch also had a pretty cool Christmas dinner on the 26th. Now, the branch being a branch and all, we did a lot to help out. One of the elders was the master of ceremonies, my companion and I were in charge of making up games or competitions to decide who got to take home the presents (there were only 4 presents). Thankfully, we did not have to cook. The Relief Society sisters took care of that. And they did a pretty darn good job of it too. Gallina rellena (stuffed chicken) and torrejas, a typical Salvadorean Christmas dessert. It was delicious!
Other than that, there's not much to report. (Editor's note: he DID have a GREAT skype with us...check out my Facebook posts for video and more pics!)
In next week's episode: Will Elder West get any sleep on New Year's Eve, or will the millions of fireworks keep him up all night?
