It’s been a crazy day...and a crazy week. I am feeling pretty stressed out and my companion is killing me. He just won´t listen to me, and he just keeps killing everything. Our sector is suffering a lot from it. I am so stressed out. This seems to always happen with the new missionaries I get.
I am glad to hear that you had a good Christmas. Here they do the New Years thing by copying what the gringos do. They throw parties and drink till you can´t find your way home. It’s a weird time, because we have to be careful thanks to all the drunks.
I am glad to hear that everyone there is progressing well. It makes me happy to know that you’re all so well. It’s weird that Silas is a priest and that Sam is in the MTC. Thanks for the picture. I like to see how he is. The family for me has become way important. I care a lot about all of you.
Sounds like things back there with Krista are hard. Looks like Sam knows how to be a good boyfriend. He always had a weird charm about him. Tell Brock the next time you see him to take it easy. I know it’s got to be hard for him. Things will all work out. Invite him to write me if he wants to. I´d be up to talk with him.
I know Sam will do well in the MTC and mission. He is starting to realize that he really does have a testimony. I think it was in your blessing Mom...but it talked about us, your boys, and spreading the Gospel. We have a work to do, this family of ours, and God has to prepare us to do it. We will all understand when the time gets here as to why it’s been so hard for us. I will be writing Sam every Monday to let me vent and to give him advice. He is a strong guy. Don´t worry, he will make it to the field.
As for things here...I am striving to stay alive. So many problems. The closer I get to the end of my mission, the more and more problems and trials there are. It’s only fitting for an end of mission experience. I am proud that Silas didn´t cry when he saw me on Skype. It’s funny how deep his voice has gotten. It’s pretty funny, everyone thought that Mom was my sister. Haha, they were all shocked afterwards. As for me, I will keep pushing myself until I get the most out of my time here. I won´t die, I will just come home..a bit "tired". Not much time to make the most of the time I have now.
Sorry I haven´t written more...I want to write Sam before my time goes. I love you all!
