Christmas is coming

It was an pretty exciting Saturday.  I was able to baptize the little girl that I talked to you about last week.  That was pretty cool.

Then we went up to a place up in Alta Loma and sang carols.  It is this really cool area that has one street that people from all over come to see the lights.  They have cops all over and have the street blocked off.  All the houses are decked out with lights so we found a place that we could sing and started singing a bunch of songs. It was a lot of fun.  I am excited to talk to my mom in a few days. 
Love you all!

Helping Out

It has been raining here a lot because el nino is coming.  Everyone make sure you have food storage because it might snow a lot. We are going a baptism this Saturday and I get to do the baptism.   I'm really excited.   She is 8 years old and her name is Neveli.  Her dad is a member but he is less active but now returning back to activity and her mom is not a member yet but her mom basically knows these things that we teach are true.  She has a ten year old brother that is baptized so we taught her and she knows these things to be true and wanted to be baptized and her family is very supportive. 
We where able to help out a family with presents and food.  It was the coolest thing last night delivering all of those presents to them. The mom almost broke down and started crying.  It was great to help this family.  Teaching them has been a humbling experience seeing them having about nothing but they are actually trying to do something about it and I'm so happy that I can be part of helping them out.

My first Thanksgiving in CA.   We went to a ward members house she is a nice Russia and she cooks us Turducken without the duck but it was probably the fanciest dinner I have ever had in my life, or will ever have because it was a lot of food and just a lot. 

There is not to report on.  It was a normal week besides having this event called the creshe it is French.  Means nativity. We were basically the one's that made sure nobody stole anything and answered questions.  Next week I will send you pictures of it. There where over 1,000 nativity's that was fun.  I took some cool pictures of them that I will share next week.
 Also we live about twenty minutes away from San Bernardino so we have been on alert about things going on. 
I have a new companion this week.  We get along great, he is a great missionary.  We are pretty similar and joke around with each other.    
Last week we had a baptism.  It was great to be a part of it and to see the happiness in there eyes.
