Feliz Navidad

Hola Todos,

So there was not a whole lot that went on this week. We had a lot of really good first lessons with people at the beginning of the week, but then everyone left for Christmas. 

The rest of the week has been pretty blah. We had a baptism to go to in my comps old area on Saturday, so we got to go on a little bit of an adventure. We went to Chimalhuacan for the baptism. This was a little scary because this is a much more dangerous area than La Paz. There are Santa Muerte´s everywhere, and that is what makes the crime go up. The belief of the Santa Muerte is that if you do something to someone and they get injured or killed, it is because it was there time to die. If they live then the Santa Muerte was not ready to take them.

So that was a little interesting being there. There were a lot of cool members, and my comp had a wonderful time visiting his old area. This was the area that he got shocked in and I was able to visit and meet the family at the house he was zapped.

Other than this, the only other exciting thing this week was the new investigator that we got yesterday. Her name is Fatima, and wow is she prepared. She was a referral from a friend and we met here at the church last week when she attended for her first time. We met with her this Sunday and taught her her first lesson. The crazy thing though is that she already had all of the folletos and has started El Libro de Mormon. She set her own baptismal date for the 31 of January, and says that she has already prayed and knows that it is true. She is awesome and I can't wait to teach her more!!!!

Other than that, the week has been pretty normal. We ate some good food and talked with lots of people. And on the metro I found Reese´s and bought 10 of them because they are very rare to find here. 

All is well, and the Spanish is continuing to progress. 

I love and miss all of you and can't wait to hear and talk to you on Thursday and next Monday. 

Con Mucho Amor,
Elder Mason Millar
