Hola Amigos, 

   I hope your post-skype-call Christmas was awesome! It's always great to see you guys. Weird that that was the last one! The rest of our day was good, we stayed at that members house and attempted to watch "The Other Side Of Heaven", which didn't actually work, then we just headed home and soaked up the rest of our Christmas day! The following days were up and down. You know how the day after Christmas is kind of strange because all the holiday hype fades away? I think all the Frenchmen were feeling the same lack of Christmas spirit because it was hard for us to find people to teach for a couple of days. But, we had an awesome post Christmas miracle last night! We were on our way to contact some less active families, but we could not find their apartment building. We turned around and there was a young women walking home, so we asked her for directions, and she ended up walking all around the apartment complex with us searching for this building, and when we got there, the family didn't even live there anymore. But she told us she had met the missionaries before so we got to talking, and we ended up teaching her and we're going to see her tomorrow! It was a great miracle for us because we were really in need of finding a new ami, and the tough moments definitely prepared us to meet her! 

  This is a short one, but really that's all for this week! Things are just moving right along in Reims and I'm super grateful to serve here! I love you guys and I hope you have a killer New Years! Au Revoir!

Ps the good ol' camera is still on the fritz, and turns out the charger is still in St. Nazaire. Pardon! Pictures will come eventually.
