2015 in review!

Hey guys well it kind of felt like we were just barely starting 2015 but its gone!  Isnt it crazy how fast time seems to fly?  Its hard for me to believe but this was by far the best year of my life.  Lots of little mountain trails have been walked, lots of lessons have been taught, and lots of changes have been made in my life.  I challenge everyone to make some personal goals and stick to them this year, we can do it!

This week we found out that our investigator Alexander cant get babtized.  Apparently the marriage laws here changed like 1 month ago and anyone under 18 cant get married.  That was kind of a bummer for us, but we found a family last week and they are pretty positive.  The last family of converts got babtized about 4 years ago here in Xeroxon so it would be a HUGE blessing for them to be babtized.  Tonight we are doing a family home evening in the house of some members and will keep helping them progress.

New years made things a little bit complicated this week, lots of people buying and selling stuff!  Most people celebrate the new year by lighting fireworks and being together as a family.  Some members gave us dinner at like 8 but other than that we didnt do anything for new years, though it was a good time to reflect 2015.  

Today we had our zone activity.  We went to the chapel in Toto and played mafia, volleyball, and soccer.  Our zone has like 11 companionships, its pretty cool though we usually have to travel pretty far.  Thats about it haha I feel kind of bad that I dont have much to write.  Things are going well, we are working and searching for new people.  The work is a little tough at times but I feel like Heavenly Father is happy with what we are doing.  I love you all!  The church is true and so is missionary work.
