Thanksgiving in El Salvador

Dear Mom,

Yes, Tori and I still email which makes me very happy. My thanksgiving was spaghetti with oil and salt. And some Arroz con Leche without the Leche, water for substitute. Sad day. Diego and preschool? I hope he will do well. I can't help but draw tears when I see those preschool pictures. He's so cute! Way to drop the turkey on Thanksgiving Mom. That's Funny stuff! I will remember about the emails. Guess who's going to get some machetes for service work? ME! Max and Jessica are so darn cute! What a great couple they are. Nice Christmas tree. We don't have one at all.Ok family. This is something that I have to ask. I was stuck in the house on Saturday all day. It was Carnaval weekend. And really dangerous supposedly. So we weren't able to leave. But I found a letter from President Rau that I thought was interesting. I saw some goals that they had put down for the work in the ward and stake. How are you guys doing on those goals? The one that called my attention more was the family studies. And the conference talk studies. I have seen here a lot of families who really don't do their family prayers and studies. They aren't doing to well. Borderline inactives some of them. Almost 98% problems come from not having that base. I would just like to invite you guys to do that. I have been talking to my companion (not about girl stuff this time haha!) what he and his family did. They all got up at 5 to study together. I know it is lame and it is very hard. But it is worth it. I feel like it will help you and I out more. Something that I am going to start doing now is start sending you guys a chapter to study for today. And mom and dad, it is your guys' resposibility to find some for the rest of the week. I want to do this so you guys can be more unified. That has been riding me for the past few months. I have seen families who do their studies and are so unified and have huge callings. And I have seen families who don't do anything. The difference is huge. Just taking out 25 minutes during the day is worth it. It is kind of like my personal studies. If I go one day without one. It is like I lost my soul. I can't function or help out people. I know you guys can be a very strong family. The chapter I would like you all to study this week is in the Bible. 1 Corinthians 9. I like it because the end verses I use for the Word of Wisdom. The rest of it I like because it gives me a good jump start of excitement and happiness for the work and my own authority.

This week was amazing and I hope for an even better one. We have transfers in a week and a half. I really don't want to go.
