This week was fun, though. And don't worry, mom, the cookies made it here safe and sound, and they made a great dinner last night ;) I also got a package from Grandpa and Grandma Hicken, and a package from the Hales. I'm still expecting a package from Caroline, too. That makes six Christmas packages in total! There were a lot of packages to take pictures of, so I just took one big picture of all of them.
Also, I got moved from the English program into a trio with the Spanish Zone Leaders in my district until (hopefully) the end of the transfer, which is just two weeks away anyway. Elder Payne is doing ok, from what I hear. His operation on Friday went well, although they found his heart in a little worse condition than they had thought, and he is set to return to the mission before the new year after recuperating over Christmas.
