December 22nd, 2014

Dear Family,

This week once again has been such a crazy week! To start off the week, Monday after emailing we got a call from our mission president and he told us that Elder Meaker would be going to a zone up in Trujillo to be a zone leader, and so Monday and Tuesday we prepared all of his stuff and took him up to Trujillo. So that means that Elder Farnsworth and I are co-companions because we are from the exact same group and have the exact same time in the mission! It is honestly crazy if you were to ask me how this all ended up happening.
This week we didn't have a lot of time to teach anyone because of our shows up in Trujillo and so I don't really have news about special visits that we had this week, but our Christmas shows were so great! Since Elder Farnsworth and I were both in a groups we stayed up in Trujillo from Friday to Sunday. We also had the best room to stay in while we were up in Trujillo, which is the office elder's house. Their house is 3 doors down from the Presidents house and so the night after the first show we were invited over to the President's house to have popcorn and choclate chip cookies! Also that next morning we had French toast at the President's house!
The Christmas shows turned out really great! The first night there was a protest against some dumb thing, but the police guys made them leave the Plaza. I think in total from both the nights of the show, there were about 3 thousand people that came and saw the show. Now, I am not completely sure how accurate that number is, but I am sure it was close to that. We received a ton of references from the two nights and the spirit was so strong as our mission sang of glad tidings of great joy!
Well, I love you all and I hope you all have amazing weeks and a very Merry Christmas!!!

Elder Thorpe
