So we had quite the crazy week!! So actually the week started off pretty normal!! We had lessons with investigators and all went well!! On thursday we had the Ward Christmas Party which was actually super awesome because a bunch of non members went so we got to do a lot of contacting there at the party!! We also got to eat and there are some really good singers in our ward like i was rather impressed haha!!
But probably the craziest thing happened on Saturday!! So as many of you know or well those who read my email that the Carvallo Family was gonna leave to Veracruz this Friday and they did!! We went with them Friday night to say our goodbyes and just wishing the best for them!! Well on Saturday when we were in the Mission Dinner with all of the missionaries i got a call from the Hna. Carvallo saying that their car had broken down on the trip and that they were back in their house and werent going to head to Veracruz!! It was sad because they had really wanted to go to Veracruz and were disappointed cuz they werent going to see there family but they said they really enjoyed church yesterday when they went!! Its a hard time for them right now but they understand perfectly that everything happens for a reason and have a big desire to be baptized!! We have plans to go with them again tonight and set a date for the 2nd of January so that will be cool!! We are excited for them and just hope and pray that God will continue to bless them as they start there journey in the church!!
I am really excited to get to talk to you guys this thursday and will be calling you at 2 pm on Christmas Eve!! Im pumped to get to see all of your smiling faces!! Oh i also got all of your packages on Saturday and lets just say it was quite an experience taking them from the church in Nogales to our house in Parajes almost 2 hours away but after a few prayers and some battling, we were able to get them safely home! I also got grams package!!
Thank you guys so much for all you do!! I love you tons and I hope You have a very MERRY CHRISTMAS!! Deuces!!
Love Elder Imlay
