Dear family and friends,
I've had a good week. Hermana Maza and I visited many members this week. We also have Gerbert and Yonathan that are progressing and doing well. And an old (from a few months ago) investigator Dayana was able to meet again. She's awesome! Very prepared. With awesome questions. We had another miracle with Victor. He's a 12 year old kid that has come to church for a long time with his great-grandma. He now has permission to be baptized! January 16th. He's a great kid. I really loving teaching kids.
Also, this week started a new year! The tradition here in Spain is eat 12 grapes for each 12 seconds before the new year, and if you accomplish it, you'll have a lucky year. Well, sadly, I was way too tired to wake up again at midnight to eat my grapes... Hopefully it's still a great year. :) I've loved reflecting on this past year and the things I want to change this year. Things I need to improve, talents I want to develop, etc. I've learned how important setting goals are during my mission.
This week I also was looking through my journal. I like to put a 'title' each day so I can quickly look through and find things. I was enjoying it way to much reading titles and a few entries. I was reminded of so many things I've experienced, miracles I've seen, good days, hard days, and in general how blessed I am to be here on a mission. I love it. I'm so grateful for all who have impacted my decision to come on a mission.
I love you all tons!

Hermana Maza's mom sent her Christmas present with her stake that was visiting the temple this week, so we had our second Christmas. And couldn't wait to open in piso.
