~We are assigned to the Fullerton 6th Ward, Spanish speaking~

This was some of the fun at our Fullerton 6th Ward Christmas Party on Saturday, December 17th:

Tons of food! So much food, I couldn't even take a small sample of everything and I still ate too much!
Just part of the party. We had a very good turn out.

The happy Missionary Couple!

Our wonderful Bishop: Obispo Disner and his wife Evy

Our wonderful Ward Mission Leader, Lehi Rosas, wife and daughter.

The Perez Sisters sang "All I Want For Christmas is YOU!"

The Callejas Family promised to come to the ward party and sit with us; but when they didn't show up we took the leftover cake I made for the party to their home after church on Sunday. They were VERY surprised!! We sure enjoyed our visit. They are a wonderful family and she promised to help me with my Spanish and I promised to help her with her English.

~* Our first baptism was Sunday, December 18, 2011*~
Martin Santana was baptized by Elder Larsen

His beautiful daughter is a member.

That evening we attended the Santa Ana Stake Christmas Program and it was a beautiful way to begin the holiday week. They had beautiful scenery, costumes and singing. I felt like I was there:

Our Last 2 Days at the MTC

Elder Dan and Sister Debbie Johnson, a great couple from Huntington Beach and the parents of Emily Nedry, became our good friends during our stay. We spent alot of time together our last Thursday and Friday at the MTC. We would joke that we must be stalking each other. We even ended up at the same pick-up spot for transportation. We were going to the Church Office Building and they were going to the Salt Lake Airport for their flight to their mission in Berlin, Germany.

New BEST FRIENDS in our training group

Our first week at the MTC we were organized into groups to learn from Preach My Gospel and be able to teach investigators: This is our GROUP:

A wonderful trip to see the Mormon Tabernacle Choir on November 6, 2011 with Elder and Sister Davis. It was a special Veteran's Day Program

Elder Brian and Sister Karen Davis called to serve in the Baltic States Mission:

Elder and Sister Call (us) at our Preach My Gospel Group will all our supplies:

Elder Steve and Sister Sue Hackett now serving in the New York New York South Mission:

Elder Dale (filled with love and laughter) and Sister Lynn Hancock, called to serve in the Virginia Richmond Mission:

Our "rowdy group" with our darling morning teacher for Preach My Gospel, Sister Sarah Zitting, and her fiance Josh. This was Friday after our last class with her. Elder Hancock brought a lot of excitement to the group teasing our teacher about Josh and how he better get a ring on her finger before he loses her. I am sure the Holy Ghost will be a strong influence in this fine couple's lives.
