**We had the opportunity to Skype with Braden on Christmas Day as a family. He filled our visit with laughter, stories and his ever-cheerful spirit. Since we had talked the day before, he had little to report in this letter**
Hello everyone! This week was a really awesome week because it was Christmas!!!!
I LOVE CHRISTMAS and this Christmas I was the farthest from my family but closest to the Lord and I loved that. I have been so happy this week, mainly because I got to see my family and Skype with them. That was AWESOME!
Before Christmas, we had a conference. I got to sing in a duet with another elder and it sounded super good. We sang Angels We Have Heard on High (one verse each in Spanish, English, and Portuguese):) So that was fun. We got to watch some awesome church videos and hear from president. We were able to relax and just had fun. It was beautiful to have a Christmas devotional with all of the missionaries from Sucre, Potosi, and Tupiza:)
We were able to do a TON of service this week! We helped move like four people and also did a bunch of baking for people in the ward:) A fun way to be in the Christmas spirit.
Really I just love the Christmas feeling here:) Being a missionary is perfect at this time, because a lot of people want to hear about Christ´s birth – I love it!!!! I love my savior and am so happy that I am here serving in Bolivia during this time:)
Love you all:)
