On Christmas Eve Hayden was able to Skype us. The picture isn't great. It was sooo fun to talk to him. We were able to meet his companion, Elder Romero and also a Hermana who takes really good care of them. It is her nonmember friends who let them use their computer to Skype. It was so weird having Hayden translate for us. In just a few months he is totally fluent! We commented on his hair cut, Elder Romero gave it to him. hahaha
Monday was pday, of course, and we had our usual email chat. There wasn't a whole lot to share since we had just talked to him a couple of days before but here is a little of what he had to say. We did get a lot of pictures though! I have shared a few.
Ya I was super trunkie after the call. I missed you guys a lot haha, but it's ok. Missing you makes me work harder. It reminds me that I'm sealed to my family for all eternity and I want the rest of the world to have that.
It was Christmas so everyone was drunk. I didn't get any sleep because there were so many parties. It was frustrating. Everyone was out of town. We contacted a lot and it felt like the whole country was denying us. It was frustrating for me. The other missionaries told me not to be frustrated haha, that's how it is in December.
I uploaded a bunch of pictures. The one with Elder Romero cooking is our Christmas dinner, tacos!!!!
Love you Mom, update the blog pleaaaase. You are awesome.
This is how they spent Christmas Eve after talking to their families.

This Hermana looks out for the missionaries and takes really good care of them. We were cracking up at Hayden's head getting cut off in the pictures.
Here are a few pictures from their mission Christmas party with President and Hermana Williamson.
Reunited with Elder Rowley!
