Dear Mom, Dad, and Cole Family,I'll be home for Christmas..... next year. I can't believe that there is only 24 days left until Christmas; it seems just like last year that I was absorbed in the "Tropical Christmas of the Philippines". I guess today means that there is exactly 30 weeks left until Elder Cole becomes a "normal person" again. It's a bitter sweet feeling thinking that I probably only have one more area left before I go home. Elder Grospe and I are staying together for one more transfer which could mean that I could be here in Calabanga for six months. Well I love this ward so it shouldn't be too much of an issue.
