Merry christmas family :)
We are going to talk in two days so I jsut have a few things to talk about.
My skype account changed so it is joshpowell555. Can you invite me to chat! :) We are going to call at 830 spanish time which i think is 1230 your time... but I am super excited! Everyone should think of their favorite experiences since the last time we talked. Also I want to hear about your trips and I want to have a tour of the house! I don´t know how the tour will work but definitely think of experiences and questions if you have any.
I just got the other package so that is good. Lots of cereal and mac and cheese and reeses!! I was so happy :)

This past week we had so many things to do and so many miracles were seen! We Set a goal to find 800 new investigators as a mission in one week and we hit 847!! It was amazing :) Normally we hit 250 ish every week and once we hit 558 but this was just crazy. Lots of prayer and lots of faith led to alot of miracles :)
We had an activity on saturday as a ward and that was also really good. This girl came who told us that she needed to be baptized. She had been taught a few times by the hermanas but now we will be teaching her. We told her that we would need to meet with her every day and that she had to come to church every week before she could be baptized on the 4th of january. She just said, "Ok, anything else?" Haha it is great. She came to church on sunday and she loved it. She is twenty years old, Emi se llama ans we are going to teach her tomorrow!! :)

Also we got to dress up as kings this past friday to go to a school. They are like santa clause but they represent the three wisemen that bring gifts on january 6th. So every kid in the school came to us and we asked if they had behaved and done their homework and all that good stuff. It was really fun :) then we asked what they wanted from the three kings. It was pretty interesting what they asked for. Only one out of the 500 said, "I don´t need anything this year but thank you for asking :)" It was a little girl. Super cute.

Talk to you soon. the mission is the greatest! 
Love Elder Powell
