|Elder Lacey with companions in Las Piedras|
December 22, 2014
¡Christmas! I'm so excited that I am sweating! Or maybe that is just the heat from the sun and all of the fireworks going off haha! It does not even feel like Christmas but it is a good time to be a missionary. There are so many people that are in need of help during this time of year. It makes for a lot of humble hearts for the spirit to touch. We have found some more really good investigators but at the same time some have fallen. The Silvera Family fell :( Their Dad suddenly freaked out and said that he didn't want us coming over anymore. We will see what happens though because Lucia already received her answer that the Book of Mormon is true. I am sure that something will get worked out eventually. But a lot of our investigators are doing super well. We had a ward activity for Christmas on Saturday and some friends of members came so we are going to start working with them. I will send you a picture of the ward activity.

I think I will call you guys at around 4 Uruguayan time this Thursday. I am pumped to see the whole crew!
I cannot believe that Dwayne received the Priesthood! That is awesome! I bet he has changed a lot. I am really happy for him.
That is also so crazy that Tyler Cahoon is already home! And Sean will be home in a month! Time is going by way too fast. Speaking of talks I gave another talk in church yesterday. haha! The bishop sent us a message an hour before church and asked us if we could talk. It is weird because I actually enjoy giving talks now.
I got the other package today! Those Eccos are swwwweeeeet. In fact I am wearing them right now. I also enjoy those protein bars a ton. We have been lifting a lot lately because Elder Ellet moved into our house and he has a bunch of weights. So I'm gettin BIG...hopefully. Elder Havens is super awesome. I will try to send a picture of us together.
I am so grateful for a family that is centered in the Gospel. I love the mission and I know that I am where I am supposed to be. There is nothing better then watching people come unto Christ and change their lives. I know that Christ lives.
