Hey Dad, sorry for not responding the last week, I was organizing all
my pictures and music onto my flashdrives and things. How´s it going?
Yeah being sick was really crappy. It´s so sucky because you can´t do
anything in the mission when you´re sick. It´s not like you can just
sit home and watch The Office, or play Madden 2012! You just have to
sit there, and I got pretty tired of just reading, reading, reading,
reading and reading. That´s really cool you got to teach that class.
I shared that experience and what you learned with an Investigator we
have that is having a hard time being happy right now, and he really
took it to hard, and started tearing up as I was telling him. Thank
you so much for telling me that and for helping me. It really does
make sense. I always have the example you set for me to always help
other people, and I really appreciate it, and it´s a value in life,
that I consider to be one of the highest and most useful. Thanks Dad.
It´s one of those thigns, just like you said, that makes the world a
better place, and if there is a place that needs to have more
courtesy, it´s in the mission, when you give everything for everyone,
even though it´s extremely difficult. Thanks for all your help dad, I
love you, hope all is well. How´s the greenhouse and htings? I´m
learning to speak really well. Not just how the people speak, but how
to gramatically speak really well, and it´s really showing a
difference between my castellano, and a lot of the other american
elders that haev been here for a year and a half or more. People are
telling me that they´ve thought i´ve been here for a few years! Which
isn´t to brag at all, but it helps to know that it´s paying off!
Thanks, Love you dad.
