Glad to hear that not to many things are changing at home. Tell Ben and his family congrats for me. Dang i missed the sister missionaries by a few weeks. Its alright though. The language is a struggle for me. When i think i have it down, God humbles me and i learn from his love what i need to improve. I would send pics to you guys but im not allowed to while im at the CCM. All the latinos and some of the north americans left this morning. There are only 19 missionaries in the CCM now for a day or two. I was told yesterday that my whole district will be staying another week because we came in an off week. I was kinda bummed but its alright because i need that extra time to practice and learn. Our district came up with a Scripture theme. Our scripture is Alma 17: 11-13. My health has been great so no worries with that. Elder Westra and I still continue teaching Mateo and Frederman. We have reached to the point that we don´t need to bring our notes with us to our lessons. We can teach the basics with the knowlege of language that we already now. It is still a challenge though. I´m pretty sure that i have gained weight. I eat a lot and i love the food. I´m glad to hear that your birthday was great mom. I miss and love you all so much. I´m not sure where i have put my patriarchal blessing but i know its somewhere in my room. Hey mom could you send me my indoor soccer shoes to use as my sports shoes and also some more underwear in my drawer please. You could send it to the mission home instead of the CCM. I heard that uncle lynn is coming down here, maybe you can send it down with him :) feel free to send anything else down like pictures. It´s crazy to think i have been out this long. I love you all and appreciate your prayers. Remember that im praying for you as well. Have a fantastic week all.
