Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Guess who has a little bit of time por fin! I hope everything´s going well, and that everyone had a great Christmas. I can´t believe that it´s already hitting 2016, but it´s going to be a great year. So I know that in these weeks there´s a lot that´s happened, but pretty much my mind is blanked out, but everything is going good here in Cacahotán. I have a new companion, Hermana Méndez, she´s got about 5 months in her mission and she´s from Guatemala. She´s awesome and we get along super well. The funny thing is that we´re both pretty shy around new people, so it´s helping me to break out of my shell a little bit I guess and talk with the people here. 

A couple weeks ago I finished the Book of Mormon for the first time in Spanish, and I just want to say that I know that it´s true. The Book of Mormon has a power to help us with any problem in our lives. But we have to study it, every day, to really see this power in our lives. I know that reading it in spanish has helped me so much to be able to learn spanish quicker, and that the gift of tongues is real. I know that we need the Book of Mormon in our lives, it literally changes us to be able to be closer to our Father in Heaven. If you believe, well read it. If you don´t believe me, read it. This is my testimony of the Book of Mormon, but you have to experiment it for yourself to really know for yourself. I know that the church is true, and I know that the Atonement of Jesus Christ is real. I know that he forgives us for things that even sometimes it´s hard to forgive ourselves, because I have felt it in my life. Please never forget that we have a Heavenly Father who loves each and every one of us so much, and that the things we pass in our lives will help us to live with Him again if we have our sight set on Him. 

I love you, and I´m so grateful for each and every one of you in my life.
