I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! This last week leading up to Christmas has been fun. We had a mission Christmas party on Friday that included a talent show. I actually participated in the talent show, however, I don't think we'll be asked to do it again (see video).
On Wednesday Elder Hack had to do some training in San Jose, so Elder Jones and I went to the mall. We met this nice lady and she insisted on buying us some Japanese food which was pretty legit (oh mom, I also bought a jacket at the mall so you don't need to send me one).
Thank you to everyone who sent me presents, cards or wrote me a note - they all really meant a lot to me and helped make my Christmas. We're still teaching a lot of lessons and the couple of people who have made a baptism commitment are progressing great. I know January will be a great month even though I will most likely be transferred from Hollister on the 24th. I've been very blessed to serve here these last 5 months and don't like to think about leaving.
I'm going to Santa Cruz again today for p-day, so that'll be cool. It was also super awesome skyping my family last night.
