Greetings Faithful Readers! Hermana Weatherford will be returning stateside shortly. Thus, her emails are a little brief. Oh, who am I kidding…she’s terrible at informative, lengthy emails! Lucky for us, she sends many pictures…all without captions this week. [if you lost count, she has one more week in Guatemala]

sooo... Last week we went to Antigua! I made it my goal to get rid of all the money I had and get as much stuff as I could for it. goal ACHIEVED. my suitcases are now ready for packing.
This week was awesome! We met a guy who lived 40 years in Queens. You can imagine that his accent is FANTASTIC. He's so cool.
Also, a family told us that their dad had a friend that was always drinking on Sundays and they would all end up borrachos. But the guy started going to church with the Elders in Santa Elena Barrillas and now doesn't go drinking and playing soccer like normal. Woohoo! The dad made the comment "these mormons are getting to everyone." the mom made the comment "if he doesn't come to church with us, he'll go with his friend. but either way, he ends up in church!"
Super good week. Next week we go to see Elder Anderson!
Love you all sooooo much!

this email is going to be super short. sorry in advance.
The pictures are of our house that after we moved yesterday (second time in my mission moving houses!) and the view from a bridge thing in our area.
Next week we go to Antigua with the zone , so I'll be writing . If you want anything cool, tell me now or forever hold your peace.
Love you all! Have a super great week and know that Jesus Christ lives :)
On December 25th we had a baptism. It was really awesome PS, my computer went all crazy and wont make any exclamation marks or smiley faces. soo... if this lacks emotion, Im very sorry.
The little boy is Wilson Romero. Hes so cute and he loved his Christmas baptism.
The other picture is of our Christmas eveª Here they celebrate it with fireworks and tamales and family. It-s awesome and we ate so much that it almost didn-t stay down. But luckily, there were no accidents on Christmas Eve.
Sorry about my email last week... It was pretty bad, I can admit that.
This week I went on divisions to Ribera del Rio, one of my areas that I was in for 6 months. It was great seeing my converts again, one who is on the verge of going on a mission, ready with his papers, just waiting for his birthday. He-s sooo pilas.
That-s all I have for this week. Know that I love you all, have an amazing New Years Eve and celebrate responsibly
