"Hey everybody!!! whats up!!! New Years sounds like it was a blast back home. ha ha I cant wait to hear what i wrote about seven years ago:) be sure to let me know! ha ha It sounds like y'all had a ton of fun!!
My new year so great!!! President actually changed up our schedule a little bit so that our pday was on Wednesday. Partly because of all the drinking that would be going on. On new years day We decided to hike up to cristo rei, the big Christ statue that they have down here. It is located on top of a small mountain. So it took us a little bit till we made it up to the top. On our way up i took so many pictures and video of the area. It was so pretty! On the trail up we actually found a camilion, kind of like the one on the movie tangled:) we held it and took some pictures with it. When we got up to the top we walk right up to the statue and luckily it was open so we were able to go inside and go up till the feet of the statue. It is so beautiful up there. From the to you can see to whole city of lubango! it was just an awesome experience. To get home we felt a little lazy, so we bumbed a ride off of some Chinese men that drove up to see it also.
The rest of our week was way good though! Adlison had his interview on Saturday and passed it with flying colors, so he will be baptised this sat!! Adilson is so excited, and also all his family said that they would come and watch. We are hoping to be able to teach adilsons brothers and sisters after his baptism, and hopefully his parents to!
Another family that is doing great is Rocks kids. Rock is a recent convert who is serving as 1st councilor in the elders quorum presidency. We started talking to his kids like a month and a half ago and they have been progressing really well and will be baptised next week. there are 6 of them."
