Week 13 - Christmas was amazing!

Well, I've had a great holiday season up here! I got a bunch of unexpected packages and love! Thank you so much, those simple things were touching.

So, shout out to Aunt Kathy, I love you so much! Thank you for the  Sriracha  sauce, super awesome gloves and everything I just about cried!

Shout out to Banna Tesfay, the next Oprah Winfrey! She can't make me sandwiches anymore but she can send the ingredients! That was one meaningful gift Banna, I love you!!!

And shout out to My Family who I love some much! You all mean the world to me!

It was nice this year to not know what was under the Christmas tree! I felt like a kid again! And I also got to see my family for the first time in three months over Skype... wow, I love them so much! And if they took and Skype pictures on their end I they better post them on the blog! And email them to me too! But seeing family this Christmas was the greatest gift I ever could of asked for, it didn't make me homesick at all. In fact it reminded me more of why I am here in Detroit. I left my eternal family so that I could come here to help make eternal families here in Detroit through inviting people to come towards the restored gospel of Jesus Christ!

As far as missionary experiences and the work this week, it slowed down a lot because no one wanted to hear from us and cussed us off their doorsteps but we only teach those that are willing to listen.

I love you all, Happy New Years from Detroit!,
Elder Alger

P.S. We were taken good care of for Christmas, the Hispanic culture will feed you whether you're hungry or not! haha

Christmas Morning!

Sara got a selfie with Elder Alger!

It really was a sweet call.  Elder Sammy has already grown and learned in so many exciting ways.  We love him bunches too!
