Last week was such an amazing week! I don't even know where to start!
We were able to help two great youth, Claudia (16 yrs) and José (12 yrs) get baptized on Saturday (happy birthday, Élder Zubeldia!) and I have never seen so many ward members and investigators come to a baptism! The Spirit was so strong. Claudia and José are going to remember Saturday night for the rest of their lives, and it was amazing helping them make it a spiritual experience.
|We helped a member in our ward make a piñata. I might make piñatas for a living!|
|At our missionary posada, we had to make the prettiest and tallest temple. Ours might not have been the tallest, but our "Provo temple" was definitely the coolest!|

To celebrate Christmas, Hna. García and I are going to try and make a pie (we have no oven, so I am super excited to see how this plays out). We had our missionary posada yesterday to celebrate with all the other missionaries in Mochis and Guasave. I got to see my sweet "mom", Hna. Shiraki! She's still as short as can be and we were thrilled to be to some moments together.

This morning, I was reading Elder Uchtdorf's talk during the October Conference Priesthood session, "Lord, is it I?" Wow! I invite everyone to read this amazing talk! I would share snippets in this email, but there are too many snippets to share.
I love you all! See you tomorrow on Skype!
ps- we found Korihor/Nehor!!! Turns out, he was hiding underneath our stove, eating our cupboard top. We put the stove on top of the fridge, and he hasn't come back. He sadly did not fulfill his name and is still somewhere in Los Mochis, but he no longer enters our home.
Here are some pictures of the missionaries in our Christmas party. The first picture is the serious one, the others are just goofy.
