I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas.  I sure did.  My family is even more wonderful than I remembered.

If y'all don't have a reputation among children of giving out stickers, I would highly recommend developing one.  I started carrying around stickers about a month ago becuase it's a fun way to contact - "Oh, your child is so adorable!  Can I give her a sticker?"  And then the kid gets really excited and it's a lot easier to talk to the parent.  And now all the kids in Adjuntas know I give out stickers.  Christmas Eve we were contacting (endlessly - no one wants an appointment these days) and we passed the street children of la calle del agua and one little girl screamed, "Quiero un sticker!" and I yelled back, "Quieres un sticker?"  SWARM.  It's so fun.

Keep spreading the word!  It doesn't matter if you have a little black nametag or not - we're all missionaries here.
