Feliz Navidad y prospero ano felicidad!

Hola and Feliz Navidad!

So, this past week was pretty good. Honestly, there wasn't anything too eventful. Oh, but I did recieve 2 packages!Thank you so much for them! I got one from you guys, then the 12 days of Christmas. Let's just say that we are so happy to actually have a Christmas tree in our house! Well, I was thrilled! Plus the ornaments and all! Thank you also for the snacks and goodies! We are all enjoying them here and I love sharing a little piece of Aloha with everyone. Oh, and as for the candy canes, there's one elder in my district who is from here, (he's our district leader) and he saw what the label on the package said: "Candy and regalos." he doesn't speak a ton of english, but he knew what the word "candy" meant lol so the candy canes may have been shared with my district ... plus our branch president who just "happened" to be there when I opened the package :D Anyway, thank you very much for everything!

As of right now, we don't have a lot of progressing investigators. This means people who are coming to church. We baptized all of the progressing ones from the last transfer so we need to find more people now! But I will tell you who we do have. 

First, a girl named Angelina. She's 19 and has an adorable little baby boy of about 5 months. She lives with her grandma and has no support from the baby daddy. But she is amazing and really cool. She hasn't come to church yet, but she has been reading the BOM every single night! She loves to read!

Also, we have Greichi, a 35 year old mom who has 3 kids I think. She is super chill and very calm about everything. She is reading the BOM and has been to church once now and we are so happy about that!

We also have Noelia. She is a very well-to-do woman  and is super cool and sweet. She is the sister of Hermana Sabino, the lady who we baptized a couple weeks ago with her family. Noelia has 3 or 4 kids and is very interested in the gospel. The only problem we have with her is that her husband (who we can never teach because he's never around) is a busy man with a schedule, so sometimes she can't come to church because she needs to do stuff around the house for him. But she has a baptismal date and we are going to try to keep working with her.

Oh, also, we had our baptism of Breily! He is 10 and it meant a lot to me to see the smile on his face throughout his baptism. He is very smart and always likes to hear about the gospel. And he is amazing :) 

That's all I'm going to write for now because I'm going to try and send some pics. 

I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas! and a Happy New Year! Thank you for all of your love and support and for the packages and letters :) I love you all and can't wait to talk to you soon! 

Love and aloha, con Feliz Navidad,
Hermana Ho
