19 Dec

Dear family and friends:

This week was fun. Festivities included the Mexican holiday in honor of the Virgin of Guadalupe (a slightly modified version of Mary the mother of Jesus) and the beginning of the posadas, which are songs and hot apple cider in rememberance of the birth of the baby Jesus. In the coming week we are expecting some delicious dinners and happily anticipating calling home on Christmas Day.

Everything is going quite well and we’ve been enjoying all the preparations for Christmas. I’m expecially jealous of all the fun Alysha must be having in choir lately… but I’m sure I’ll make it to her concerts when I get home so she shouldn’t worry.

Alene, here’s a story I thought you might find interesting about the new bible videos the church is making. The videos can be found at
