I'M BACK IN CHOLULA MOMMA! My companion is Elder Cook. He is one of my best friends on the mission. We just hadn't been comps till now. We came to the mission the same day. He is from Rexburg, Idaho. We are the Zone Leaders in Cholula. We have some investigators-BUT WE'RE ABOUT TO HAVE A TON MORE. WE'RE ABOUT TO DESTROY CHOLULA. My companion is a hard worker-obedient. He's a great guy and we've wanted to be companions for a long time. Skyping on Christmas Eve, it should be 6-yeah. I need a picture of Chellie in a Spyro onzie. Sounds like the music at your Christmas Sunday at church was awesome! Pancakes for Chellie’s birthday breakfast! I LOVE PANCAKES. Ask me questions about my comp when we skype! Love you! -Elder Dazey

Sounds like it was an awesome conference! Who knows where I will be when I skype you! I have transfers tomorrow! I only stayed in my area for 5 weeks! This transfer was a week shorter because of all of the Christmas traffic that there would be.
FEARLESS FOR THE LORD. I THINK SO :D
Well. It has been a fun time in Atlixco. I've learned loads of things. I think that I am ready to continue my journey into new worlds. I am praying that I can be mentally and spiritually prepared for the things that come.
This week we have been fighting to help some people get baptized. Carlos and Jaqueline have to get married, and after much struggle to find a way we decided to wait until January to get them baptized. Other two families need to still go to church- something that was impossible this week-but for a good reason- there was a temple dedicated in Tijuana so we went to see the dedication. We put some of the Zone's stuff in the storage room this week.
MY STOMACH IS ROLLING. I don't know what will happen with my next transfers. But-that's okay. I trust in the Lord ;)
Anyway- I love you guys! I'll tell you what happens next week.

So this week has been awesome. We had some intercambios (splits) this week and I went with Elder Corral and with Elder Mendez. It was pretty cool because I was with my kid again. Also Elder Mendez is just about to go home and he was asking me about sight reading music- so I taught him some basic music theory. We sang songs for our language study that day. We found 16 new investigators this week, finished the week with 9 baptismal dates and loads of other stuff. The sad thing is that although we did a ton to get people to church, only 2 people came, so a few of our baptismal dates fell through.
Christmas time is here. I LOVE CHRISTMAS. It's the best. It just gives me so many feels. President challenged us to make this Christmas special. So I'm going to do my best. I'm loving the Christmas music.
To answer some of your questions, my companion is really cool. He was going to go to an awesome school to play football-but in his 2nd to last game he broke the tendons on the inside of his knee so he decided that that was a sign that he should go on a mission. He is a hard worker- loves sports and is really good at them. We talk a lot- and share tons of stories together. He is very spiritual and has a lot of power in his teaching. He's a funny guy. He loves his family. He's worked hard his whole life. He used to be a firefighter and he is from St. George Utah and previously lived in Las Vegas. We have a lot in common and yet we grew up in different worlds. I love my Comp. :D
I am going to buy a Christmas tree and some pine scent :D I'm going to try to make this last Christmas special. I'm going to finish Jesus the Christ before Christmas. I LOVE CHRISTMAS MUSIC.
During the General Christmas Broadcast from Salt Lake, I loved Elder Bednars talk about the light of the world and Elder Uchtdorf's about "The Generous One" and I loved hearing the other inspiring stories. I love hearing the General Authorities and Sisters :D

I´m glad that things are going well. I´ll try to send some more pictures. I love you lots! Unfortunately, I don’t have too much time to write today but I’ll tell you about our crazy week quickly:
We had 3 splits this week. We had a heck of a time with the assistants. Ate chilis today and taught a university class about Mormons. It was sick.
We had 5 baptisms this weekend, 13 new investigators and we still have 8 baptismal dates and we´re putting 2 more people on date today for baptism. It´s pretty awesome. I love you guys.
My testimony: I know that Christ is my redeemer though I am still not sure of all of what that means for me. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet and a great man chosen by God. I know that God loves us and has made a perfect undefeatable plan. I know that I do not yet have a knowledge of all things, but that I can gain it throughexercising my faith. I know that men can change through the power of repentance. The wonders of covenants and ordinances fascinate me- and drive me to be a better person. The Book of Mormon has changed my life. In that book, we can learn more about the Holy Nature and Character of the Godhead than in any other book. I love this Church and I know that it is true. Of these things I testify in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
