Día de Muertos

Hola Familia,

I don't have very much time to write a good letter today, SORRY!  We had P-Day today because today is the Día de Muertos.  This is a really cool holiday that they have here in Mexico in which they celebrate and commemorate the people that have passed on.  They put little altars outside of their houses with photos, skulls with candles, and the favorite food of the family members that have passed on.  They visit graveyards and spend time as families.  We, as missionaries, are going to play soccer, have a pumpkin carving contest, a costume contest, and eat pizza (something that they don't have a lot of here).

This last week was great.  We went to a food appointment and the Hermana who gave us the food also gave us the opportunity to meet a neighbor of hers.  This friend accepted a baptismal date in the first lesson and the rest of her family in the lesson after.  This coming week we are going to have the baptismal service for them!!

Well, I am working hard and trying my best to learn from my mistakes to everyday be a better Elder and person!  I love you all tons and tons!

Con amor,
Elder Janis
