Thank you to everyone for your Christmas wishes and letters and packages and EVERYTHING!I hope you all enjoyed your Christmas and I hope you all have a Happy New Year as well!
It was sooo good to see you all and talk for a little while. It was comforting to see that not much has changed at home, and that my sisters really do miss me.. Sophie's eyes weren't dry for a single second of the call haha.
It really was a different Christmas spirit this year, walking down the streets searching for work and not finding much because everyone was enjoying themselves in other places, or in unfriendly ways. But it was a beautiful, simple Christmas. I have some awesome new ties, socks, and even a scripture study buddy.. what more could I ask for?!?!Christmas Eve, or Noche Buena, was actually pretty fun. We hung out with the family Salcido and ate a bunch of food and had a Piñata, and I was the one that broke it hah.
After that, the family Salcido gave us each a gift, and we went home for the night.Like I said... simple, but it was beautiful.I really dont have much to write about this week, I just talked to you yesterday hah.
The Hermana Carmen has a baptismal date and we are hoping that we can reach that goal. Today we went to her house actually and fixed her roof for her with tar and tar paper.. I was in charge of keeping the fire lit under the barrel of tar with Elder Larsen and I felt like I was camping again with a bonfire hah.
Love you all so much and really, thank you so much for everything!
Have a very Happy New year!Elder Cade Poll
