The new year was awesome TONS of fireworks and yes I took video. My new companion Elder Corrales is awesome and has 21 months in the mission. Elder Molina has about 7 months before he goes home. The price is right party looks like it was fun!! The Elder Thompson whos mom you had lunch with was in West Virginia with me and is in the same zone as i right now unless its another Elder Thompson.. In answer to your Qs Yes the Siesta passes everyday from about noon until 4 or 5 pm. We usually study during the Siesta. I still havent got the packages yet but the zone leaders go to Salta tomorrow... And you can senda letter directly to me if you want.
We almost had a miracle Baptism last saturday for an investigator that has been listening to the missionaries for 3 yrs now. We had a lesson with her about baptism and at the end we asked her to kneel down with us and ask heavenly Father if it was the right thing to be baptize the next day. At the end of her simple prayer we stayed kneeled down in silence waiting for her to respond as she began to cry. After a few seconds we sat back up in our chairs and she knew that she had recieved her answer that it was the right thing to be baptized . She has three daughters and all three are baptized. One is married to the 2 conselor of the bishopric and the other two are 15 and 16 yrs. The one daughter that is married was out of town and couldnt return by Saturday so we ended up cancelling the baptism until the next Saturday.
Have to go now..
