I hope everyone had an amazing Christmas! I certainly did! Skyping home was a blast and it was so good to see my family’s faces. We get to watch movies on Christmas Day, Boxing Day, and New Years Day in my mission! So Elder Smith and I watched Earth to Echo, How to Train Your Dragon 2, Big Hero 6, Home, Joseph King of Dreams, and El Dorado! Hahaha great times. Boxing day is a BIG holiday here so we hiked Cave Hill with our Zone Leaders! It was a super good view of the city… but it was SUPER foggy. Oh well! We called all of our investigators this week and no one answered. Basically, people don’t want to see missionaries at Christmas! Hahaha oh well. This week should be better! Think of something that you can improve on in this new year. Not a New Year’s resolution, because no one keeps those. Think of a little thing you can improve on because by small and simple things, great things shall come to pass! I am going to read an extra page from the Book of Mormon every day! I love you all and Happy New Year!!
