Hello there family, how are you?

Everything's great here in Plottier.

This week was kind of hard, but this weeks going to be evenm better, so it's alright. The beginning of the week was great and everything was going well, we were preparing everything for the baptisms we're going to have next week. We went to Juan Carlos, and the cita was going well, but a member came into the kitchen where we were teaching to heat up his water to drink mate, and Carlos got nervous and stood up and said that he had to go to another commitment and we set up a cita for Saturday, and he didn't show up. Neither did he come to church the day afterwards, so we don't really know what's going to happen.

Our other investigador with a baptismal date, Claudia, told us this week that they aren't going to be able to come to church on Christmas day so that she can get baptized, and so they wanted to push the date back another week, which is kind of a bummer because that will be after transfers, and I could possibly be leaving. But she's great and going to get baptized, and that's the important thing.

Louisa, the grandma of a recent convert family is also doing very well! She still has her date for this weekend, and last time we talked to her, she was very excited and committed! But she couldn't come to church yesterday because she had extreme back pains... so yeah, it was kind of a tough day. We tried to go see her but didn't answer the door or the phone, but we have faith that she'll still get baptized this weekend and be able to keep going. She's an amazing woman, and so we're hoping for the best there.

Thank you all for you support and love always, it means a lot. During this Christmas season, I invite all of you to think in ways you can become more like Christ, and serve other people! When we focus on others and try to do nice things for them, our problems and troubles become a lot smaller and tend to resolve themselves. I love you all, and have a very Merry Christmas!!
