Here's Elder Sierra's letter from last week.

Hey Mom,

Sorry for forgetting to tell you that I wouldn't be able to write to you last Monday. And unfortunately, I couldn't get enough time to email you today due to all the chaos of Thanksgiving, but I received permission to talk to you tomorrow so don't worry I will have a real conversation with you. Anyhow, I would like to share with you a miracle. We have been working with the Familia Guerra for quite some time. They all love what they are learning and have a desire to go to church. Each of the family members has accepted a baptismal invitation, but just a few days ago, we invited Marcos and Miguel to be baptized on December 21st and they have accepted. The Spirit was very powerful as both brothers (they remind me of Benjamin and me) looked at each other, and then at us, and exclaimed that they wanted to be baptized into la Iglesia de Jesucristo de Los Santos de Los Últimos Días. Everyone told me that I wouldn't be able to get much work done here, that West Sacramento was in a drought. Elder Sempf and I proved them ALL wrong. We are excited to have a REAL White Christmas by helping to bring two truly converted souls unto Christ. Mom, Dad, Benjamin, Ralynne, family, friends, Happy Thanksgiving! You are what I am thankful for. I love you all so much. It hurt a little to wake up and to remember that I would not be eating in a home or at a table surrounded by my loved ones from home. However, there are many loved ones that I have here that need me. Happy Holidays. Felíz Día de Gracia! Les Amo!

Elder Sierra
