January 7, 2013

Dear Family,

That is big news! I haven't even seen this girl yet! Oh well, I'll get over it.
This week has been... different. New Years was crazy. The was literally no one on the street in the whole city for like 3 days, because every one was inside partying. They take their New Years very seriously here. Basically every single appointment we ever go to they want to feed us, and it's gotten to the point where I just want it to go back to normal. The food is super good, but I feel bad because a lot of the families here can't really afford to feed us, but they won't take no for an answer. We basically have just stopped eating at our house at all, because we get so much food from other places. It's started to slow down a little bit though, so that's good. It really is like a week long party for these people though.
Our investigators are doing well. xxxxxxxxxxxx are scheduled to be baptized on the 19 of January, but they missed church again yesterday... It's kind of understandable though, considering yesterday was Christmas here. I'll keep you updated on them. We actually got our investigator xxxxx to finally accept a baptismal date, which kind of shocked us. She's been one of those eternal investigators. The farthest back teaching record I can find says that they picked her up in 2010, so she's been around for a while. We finally had a 'do or die' lesson with her and I kind of got in her face. Just enough to singe her eyebrows a little bit. But then she accepted! it blew our minds.
The weather has actually warmed up a bit here. It's been colder for the last little while, but today it's nice. It might even rain.
All of the snow has melted, at least here in the city. I hear that up north there is still a ton. How much snow do you guys have there?
I learned how to make tolma last night, with the help of some of our members. I'll have to make you some when I come back.
Well, I love you all. I hope you all had a good new year. I'll talk to you next week
