Week of Christmas!!

[Hello everyone, Alex's mom here, during our conversation with Alex on Christmas he let us know that he had been emailed a date that he gets to go home from his mission: April 11. We thought it was the beginning of May, so we are pretty excited!!! Thanks to those reading his letters and sending their love and support.]

Hey Mom,
Thanks for all the letters and the gifts that were sent for Christmas, I enjoyed all of the cool stuff, I liked the temple reccomend holder and the Harry Potter shirt, and the mini basketball hoop will be used often as well haha. It was great talking to you guys, the time always goes by really fast in those calls, but it's cool to see you guys and see how much has changed. Camille seems so much bigger, her voice has changed a lot.
This week was great, lots of walking in the heat, but for good reasons :)  We have been working hard in the area, and we have been trying to work a lot with the members because there are a lot of returned missionaries and we have investigators that live close to their houses. So, with that family I told you guys about, the Fleitas family, we have visited them with a lot of different members and they have been attending church these last few weeks. They even came yesterday in the heat, walking when most of the members didn`t even come.
We have also been working with two young girls named Tatianna and Deisy, their uncle and aunt are both members that are attending church again and one of their sisters too. They live with their aunt and uncle, so they have been attending church but the aunt told us to pray a lot for their mom to be able to accept the gospel. She works for 2 weeks then comes home to visit them, but she needs to sign the permission for their baptisms so we have been praying a lot for them.
Not much else new, but we contacted another bus today. I am proud of my companion, he is talking a lot more and I would have never stood up in front of everybody in a bus and talked about the gospel in Spanish when I was in my training haha.
Hope you guys have a great new years, thanks again for everything and can`t wait to hear from you soon, Happy NEW YEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
