I didn't receive a letter from James this week, but we did speak to him on the phone. He has been really sick and had to go in and get hooked up to an IV. He thinks it was something he ate. He did get his Christmas package on Christmas Eve and was so happy to share goodies with Elder Valenzuela, who tried Reses Pieces for the first time and loved them! Also the new white shirts and slacks, socks and ties were all a welcome improvement to James's worn out wardrobe.
