We had an interesting week this week with La Navidad and all. We spent Noche Buena (Christmas Eve) with some members in the evening where we drank punch and lit off fireworks in the house (actually, they were just the little sparklers but it reminded me that I am not in the States anymore). Afterwards, we went back to the apartment and got a text from the Zone Leaders that the President gave us permission to sleep in on Christmas given that we actually still did our studies.
On Christmas we had weekly planning and afterwards I called the family which was excellent to see them after so long. We also were at the Ward Mission Leader's house when he talked to his children that are on missions which was interesting as well. I have been in this área so long that I knew one of them before he left.
Two days later we had the Ward Christmas Party which ended up being a lot of fun and a lot of food.
Anyways, have an excellent week with New Years and all!
