week something (22)

First of all the Allen Christmas tree is sweet. Our only Christmas decoration in the apartment right now! Thanks fam I have the best family in the world. Also this past week I saw a lady walking her turtle on the sidewalk. Yes a turtle. The things you see in California...
Well you know how I always complained when we had to carol at Christmas time? Now its my favorite. So weird I know... We went caroling as a zone this past week and just being with all those missionaries and singing to people was so much fun and the Spirit was so strong with us. I love this time of year. Its great as a missionary cause people will actually listen to you haha.
I hope everyone has a great Christmas season and looks for ways to help others. There are people everywhere who are waiting for somebody to help. I love you all thanks for all the support.
Don't worry Mom Del Mar is taking care of me this branch is awesome even though the missionary work is so hard here!

Walking around eating ice cream and looking at Christmas lights LOL!

Craziness week 21

This week has been all over the place. I am half training Elder Bucko He is from New York and speaks very little spanish so that has been rough and he doesnt talk alot either but he is starting to open up and we are working it hard. so that has been fun. I met Braxtons cousin this past week so that was crazy. I sang with 4 other youth at our branch Christmas party and it sounded terrible but was so much fun. I saw Jeff Allen at the Christmas concert on  last night and he came and gave me a hug and we are gonna go over for dinner some time haha. Bishop Romney is in the same building as me and i see him all the time and there are tons of other romneys here that im some how related to. Its a great area i love it. Just the work is rough here and the branch is so small. Our branch had the most powerful testimony meeting ever. Its been a very eventful week and it has been so much fun. The days are going by way too fast it needs to slow down!
Work is harder here but im used to it now so its just normal. Missions are challenging but its life. I have grown so much from what i have noticed and on saturday night i cried to Heavenly Father for the first time. It was probably an experience that changed my mission. I am so blessed in my life with everything and im so selfish for not sharing everything i have with those who are in need, especially the gospel. Thanks for raising me right.
