Just want to let you know that the phone calls and Skype was amazing yesterday! im really blessed for the people that God has put into my life, and you guys have no idea how much it helped me to see and talk to you. you guys really inspire me to be a better person and work even harder in the work. and not just the people that i talked to on Christmas, but i really appreciate all the people that are helping me even though im a horrible person and dont write letters and stuff like that, but i promise ill make up for it when i get back ha..anyways, this Christmas went really well. first of all, this week we went to Cusco the 22 for a big dinner with half the mission that went really well. we did our skits that came out really funny and we ended up hanging out until like 12 at night which was sweet ha! it was nice seeing all my friends from the mission too! The dinner was good but i couldnt enjoy it too much because we went out and got fast food right before, but it was definitely worth it because it was delicious..oh and as we were coming back from cusco we went over a huge mountain and there was some snow which was sweet, so we stopped and took some pics which was cool. on Christmas eve we had a great turkey dinner with a family here that invited all of us missionarys over. then we had a gift exchange where everyone put in a ten sol gift, but i ended up getting like the worst gift ever lol. it was like the girlest picture frame ever but it was pretty funny i guess. after that we went to another member´s house though and the mom of the family absolutely loved it so i just gave it to her lol...it ended up working out great. the last great thing about this week was that Percy got baptized and confirmed!!! it was a really great service, and it was amazing seeing how strongly that Percy has converted to the gospel. oh and Plinio and Lila, my converts from Juliaca called me this week and are doing great which made me really happy! Plinio got the priesthood and is passing the sacrament already which is awesome! anyways i love you all and i hope that everyone had a great christmas and that everyone has a happy new year!
Love Elder Anderson!!!
