Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

December 29, 2014
This Christmas was the best! A lot of people invited us to eat with them.  We were all so full!!!!! It made me feel really loved that so many people would invite us to be with them during them Christmas Day! It felt really good to see the family and talk to you guys. It honestly doesn´t seem like it has been that long since I was with you guys, but now I look back I can´t believe that it has almost been 2 years. This week we had a lot of success and we had a really good week! I honestly could not be any more happier.  I am so grateful for everything that I have and for the Gospel that I have in my life. I love this Gospel and the message that we share as missionaries! I love the Scriptures, I love being a missionary, I love the Spirit, I love my Savior and Redeemer Jesus Christ.  I love sharing the Gospel! My testimony has increased greatly on the mission, I have learned and progressed so much!  This is a picture of our District on Christmas Day! We had a lot of fun, and everyone loved talking to their families! My companion was so excited to see them.  He is going to be with them in 5 weeks! Merry Christmas!

Our New Year was really special.  We ate a lot of food and heard a lot of people going crazy when it was midnight.  Right on the beach all of the hotels near the beach launched fire works.  That was really cool! At nearly every single house that we went to visit, everyone gave us food. I feel like I have gained a little bit of weight.  We also hit some piñatas and played the game that you gave me called Spy It. We found a really awesome family to teach.  All of the other missionaries are giving my companion a hard time because he goes home in one month. My companion Elder Cano was pretty sick this week.  We went to the hospital twice and he still hasn´t felt any better. The doctors didn´t check him.  They just talked to him and then gave him more medicine. He still doesn´t feel better, but he does not want to rest.  He doesn´t ever put up excuses not to work. I love that about him. This week President Velez and Hermana Velez are going to come down and visit Los Cabos along with the Assistants, so that should be fun.  2014 was a great year, I am so exited for this new year and to see what God has in store for me in 2015. I still can´t believe it is 2015, I remember when it was 2013.  Time is flying by. I love this work, I love being a missionary, and the opportunity that I have to be a missionary and for all that God has given. My testimony has grown so much, my love and understanding of the Gospel have grown so much. Thanks for the letter and for all of your love and support. I will send you pictures from Christmas and New Year!
Love, Elder Cannon

P.S. Tell Isaac Happy Birthday! ¡FELIZ CUMPLEAÑOS! Isaac is getting older, he is growing up! I hope that he had a wonderful birthday! When it was January 1, I remembered that it was his birthday, and that he was turning 15 years old. That is crazy and I am happy for him. I love you bro!
