The tradition of placing a trinket (a figurine of the Christ child) in the cake is very old. The baby Jesus hidden in the bread represents the flight of the Holy Family, fleeing from King Herod's Massacre of the Innocents. Whoever finds the baby Jesus figurine is blessed. In the Mexican culture, this person has the responsibility of hosting a dinner and provide tamales to the guests. So pretty much a huge cake/bread and we all cut pieces and 4 baby Jesus' were hidden inside and Elder Weese got one hahaha.
> Taught Jacob. Member referral. He's super cool but a lot of doubts. He's 31 and I hope he progresses!
> Henry is still my homie. He gave us a ride to our dinner because he saw us walking.
> Taught Hector with President and our ward mission leader and the lesson was SO GOOD. Hector went from "I wanna live my life. Maybe I'll be baptized in 13 years when I am 35" to "I'll pray to see if I need to be baptized in MARCH" YAY
> Stepped in a hole of water and my foot froze in negative temperatures and -40 wind chill. But I eventually made it to the Romero's house and they loaned me a sock and shoes #tytyty
> Luis was at church. So was Hector. And Belinda and her husband and son. Yeeeeee.
That's all the highlights REAL FAST. Love you all!!
