Week 14

"I'll start off by answering you questions:  First, my spanish is getting better each day and I can understand a lot more each day so thats good.  For my english class its pretty simple, we first informed the members about it and told them to tell their friends, we have also been telling our investigators about it and so on.  It's only once a week for an hour and right now Im teaching how to read and pronounce words.  The weather here is the best!  It gets chilly at night but not to the point where I need a jacket,  it's not to weird not having snow, in a weird way its kinda nice!  And about my Journal, I do have one and I write in it every night. I even put pictures in it so don't worry haha!"

"It's awesome to hear that the family is doing well!  Some information about skyping, so we can pick a day between the 24 and the 31 to skype, I think we are still planning on doing it on Christmas, its on for 40-45 min, and I can't call by phone after skype.  It sucks but it's the rules..  I asked Jared to set up a Camera on the TV in the family room so everyone can see, because I don't have time to do individual chats besides with you and dad. Oh one other thing it'll only be a video chat if we can find a Cyber caf√© with web cams.."

"Okay moving on, a little more about Mexico, so the other night we were sitting in our apartment doing our daily planning when we heard the power spike on and all the lights popped, it was super funny except we had to buy all new light bulbs."

"Something really sweet!  So do you remember the old Trix cereal that was shaped like fruits and sucked?  haha ya, well that's the only Trix they have here!  Its like I am reliving my entire childhood through a bowl of Trix a day!! haha"

"So last week I told you about the gangsters harassing us, it never ends, it finally clicked, think about it, one white guy one black guy riding around in a brown world?! haha slightly racist but so true!"

"Thats about it for this week, one last favor, so I have been really craving egg salad sandwiches for like two weeks now and I don't know how to make them, could you tell me what to put in it haha?!"

Oh how that kid loves his egg salad sandwiches I'm sure he is going crazy without them. We are all super excited to talk to him on Christmas he is definitely missed in this house. It feels a little empty without him, (you wouldn't think that would be possible considering 12 people live here). This Christmas is going to be so weird without him. Hopefully he has gotten or will get the packages we sent him during this joyous season. So many things to ponder and be thankful for and his service is something my family is extremely thankful for and we know that through him we are being blessed. Have a Merry Christmas everyone! Until next time. May God be with you.
