Hi! I was a little sad last week to hear that you weren't sending me a package, but you're right that it's better to save that for when it's needed. I was planning on buying some clothing today with my card; I'm not sure if that's using my christmas money or just general clothing funds, but either way, thank you! Thank you to grandma as well!!This week was funky. We had the Christmas Conference, and we watched Coco! It was crazy--I told president it was like taking a long drink after walking miles without water. We also stayed over at the Zone Leaders' house...four times. Every day there was a meeting or something, this led to that, and before I knew it, I was sitting in the zone leaders' house eating an entire liter of Grido ice-cream, an experience I wouldn't mind repeating. (The ice cream here is really good.)I don't think I have pictures for this week. I usually don't take my camera in the street (cause, you know, ladrones [thieves]), but maybe I can get you guys a video of me playing soccer or something. DID YOU PUT THE TREE UP? I want to see! Christmas here is more of a fourth of July thing with fireworks and asado, and though there are lots of decorations, somehow it just doesn't feel the same.The other day we went to the house of a family we teach to give some service. They were very surprised to find out that we own regular clothes. The father had been a little apprehensive about talking to us before, but we served genuinely and I think he at the very least felt that we care. We helped him build a brick wall as part of a house they're building. It was fun, and my companion took some pictures which I will now send.Also, dad finally passed me in my scripture reading. I probably won't finish before the end of the year, but I'm learning a ton, so I don't mind so much.See you soon! [He gets to Skype us on Christmas! Only 15 more days!!]Elder Sheffer
