Happy New Year

Feliz año nuevo mis amigos!! (how in the world is it already 2015?!?!?!)
I hope you all had a great new years and that you all got your new years kisses or whatever. I had a great time eating grapes here in Spain!! hahah the tradition here is to eat 12 grapes at midnight. So we got permission to eat the grapes and then head right home after. It was fun! 

Well, looking back, i think 2014 would have to be one of the coolest years ive ever had. I got to study in Hawaii, travel through most all the states in the US, and then start my mission in SPAIN!! and i am even more excited for 2015!! For all of this year i will be here in Spain serving the Lord. HOW COOL IS THAT???? (jealous?) 

We have set some great goals as a mission and as a companionship and personally. and i know we are going to be seeing some miracles here soon!! 

 I was able to finish the Book of mormon before the end of 2014 (i read it in two months!!) and now I have a goal to read it twice, in spanish! 

Well these last few weeks have been a little difficult as far as lessons go, but we arent getting discouraged!! With Christmas, and the New Year, and now el Dia de los Tres Reyes Magos (tomorrow) it has been a crazy transfer full of holidays. So we havent really been able to meet regularly with anyone! which is so frustrating! so i am hoping it wil get better once these holidays are all over. We have been trying a lot more antiguo investigators and less actives, and street and door to door contacting, which means we have also gotten some more rejection. hahah, hermana perez and i have started a game to see who can get rejected more! ill let you know the winner of that;) but, we are working DILIGENTLY! and we will see some results soon. 

I just want to say how much i love this work, and i know the joy that the gospel brings to people. So my challenge for all of you in this NEW YEAR of 2015 is to be an example, and to do your own missionary work back home! my challenge is to try every month to bring a friend to church. And i KNOW that you will be blessed for your efforts. 

I love you all!! have a great year of 2015!!! 
con amor,
