Hi everybody! This week went really great and really busy! Wednesday we spent the whole day in Juchitan for a multi-zone conference and also practicing for the Christmas program we put on. It was fun to go and see all my buddies from the other zones and it was weird to think that it was one of the last times I’d probably be seeing most of them.
Last night we had the talent show/Christmas program here in our stake, and it went really well. After church we spent all day rehearsing and practicing it was crazy! A ton of people showed up, so many that there wasn’t enough chairs in the chapel and everyone had to stand along the walls and stuff it was pretty cool. I got picked to sort of be the emcee of it, so that was fun. I’m sure Hermana Madsen will have some pics and stuff on Facebook soon, she took a ton haha. We also had a good week in our area this week, we have a couple of baptisms coming  up for the next week, right before changes, so that will be cool. Thanksgiving here was normal, nothing special. We had rice, beans and eggs for lunch haha. I got a bunch of pictures to send so I’ll get going with those but have a good week! Happy birthday Abby!
