HEY! Well I'm so excited for Christmas!
This past week has been crazy and I'm not even sure where to begin! Since Elder Wenz hurt his shoulder and can't ride a bike we are walking everywhere! Its fun but it takes up so much time. We also have been bugging the members for rides all the time! They are going to start to hate us pretty soon.. ha ha. But they are all so willing to help us and make sure that we always have rides to our teaching appointments! 
We are still teaching Mark, he is around 20 years old and it turns out that his dad is a member already but hasn't been active for 15 years. We are going to start teaching his whole family soon as well. He has 6 siblings all younger than him! What a find! We were blessed to find them. Every time we ask Mark when he wants to meet with us he says AS SOON AS POSSIBLE!! So thats always comforting that he is really interested. He is understanding everything we teach him and is thirsting for more of it. He loves the Book of Mormon! His baptismal date is January 14th, I'm so excited to see him be baptized!
Nancy Casamelhuapa is being Baptized on December 31st still and is so ready for it. She is amazing! Every time we meet with her she amazes me with how much she knows! But then I remember that she has been going to church for 3 years.  We were so blessed to be teaching her. 
We haven't been able to teach David this week but we have seen him pretty much everyday.  We have a teaching appointment with him tonight, it will the first time that we will be teaching his whole family (his wife and two sons). We are planning to be setting his wife and his oldest son (9) with a baptism date! Its going to be fun! We are planning on teaching them the Gospel of Jesus Christ! Its my favorite lesson to teach besides the restoration, because we get to focus on baptism so much!
Well I will be talking to you in about 5 days!!!! I cant wait!
I love you all so much and MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Elder Garrett.
