Un Boracho? Si!!!

I hope everyone had a very very Merry Christmas, mine was wonderful, talking to the family was the best part! I love my family and hearing their voices is music to my ears :) Christmas day we were working in the area and passed a drunk guy (boracho) and he said, oh hi, and we said buenos and kepts walking, picking up our pace, he stood up and started following us, then we started running and he started running!! We were panicking, it's hard enough running with a backpack, but in a dress as well just adds to it! Anyway, he chased us for a few block and we passed a lady and she was like un boracho? we were like uh SI!!!!! thinking she would help, she thought it was funny... punk. But it sure made the day interesting! For Christmas Eve we were invited over for tamales, the tamales here are different, their soupy and need to be eaten with a spoon and have a chunk of meat and bone in the middle, but they are kinda tasty! We also were invited over for a BBQ and we cooked the meat, it was fun! But they had meat like intestines, liver, heart, some things I didn't know/want to know... 
We had a Sunday of miracles yesterday, we were running a little late and I said I hope there's a taxi outside, because there never is by our house, we walked out and there one was! We picked up Jorge, Virctoria and their little brother then went to see if another new investigator that we had taught once wanted to come, he was all ready and waiting for us, his name is Marlon, he's 16 (he told my comp he's always wanted to be in this church! -golden). We were walking to the bus stop and a taxi passed us and said he'd give us a free ride with all of the investigators! Woot woot! It was a miracle that Jorge came as well because Saturday he was in huge trouble with his family and the police, he had stolen money and the police went to his house... we're not sure if he'll be allowed to be baptized, we're praying our hearts out that he changes his ways...
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! 2015 is going to be a wonderful year, I can't wait to get it started :) and GO BRONCOS!!! Love you all :)
Love, Hermana Brems
