I don´t have a lot of time, but Christmas was great!! We spent the 22nd and 23rd in Guayaquil as a mission and got to work and skype on Christmas which both were actually really great! We sang hymns for lots of our lessons and that was super cool!! Also, seeing the family was great!! Families are amazing!
Also, a few have asked about how christmas is celebrated here, The people here usually party until late in the night/ early in the morning on Christmas Eve, and they have little statue things that they make and they have those around, statues of minions (The movie), spiderman, batman, etc are the most common, but I have heard that on new years they blow them all up at midnight, and party late that day as well, which I will see how that goes this week :)
Sorry that I don´t have more time, but I hope that you all enjoyed Christmas!! Christmas was great for me on the mission! Even though I was a little worried about having a different Christmas at first.
Also, I finished my 12 weeks of training and now I have a new companion, Elder Alvarado! He is also from Peru, and has about 6 or 7 months in the mission, but he has already trained someone else, so I am excited to work with him! I am the only one that knows the sector now, so I have a lot more responsibility, but I am excited to work with a new companion, even though Elder Garcia was great! I know I will learn a lot and grow a lot now that I am the only one that knows the sector and investigators and such :) I will update you more on how it goes next week! I hope you all have an amazing week, an amazing new years, and trust in God always!
