Well that was great New Years! The New Years for those dont know what goes down here on New years, well its an insane fire light up city! They light these paper machet huge toy looking things on fire that are filled with M80 and so it basically becomes a war zone.. its pretty nuts! But its a fun thing to see from the 3rd floor of your house! :) After the craziness in the night everyone goes on vacation which means we as missionaries are left with not much to do which means that we dont do much! We had so much food, and no sleep. But on New Years day we went and played soccer at a stadium which was incredible! It was the first time I have seen grass in 18 months! Dont take grass for granted.. All of the gringos got fried that day, and we were so beat but it was a fun day. We went back to the house after and watched the return missionary hoping that that wouldnt happen to us. 

We are working hard with the families that we have and the are finally progressing, no one ever said that it would be easy, but it possible and we are proving that now! I will write more next week seeing that I dont have time now! Have a great week!
