Called to Serve

"Therefore, if ye have desires to serve God ye are called to the work ... and faith, hope, charity and love, with an eye single to the glory of God, qualify him for the work." - D&C 4:3-5

I'm gonna write this in english haha but first of all i can only write once a week so try and only send me one or two dear elders because it gets kind of over whelming to get 6 dear elders a day and we don't have a lot of time to read them at night, and it's hard for some of the other elders and hermanas when i get a ton of stuff because since i'm a district leader i have to get all the mail for everyone. and since i can only write once a week it's hard to respond to everything you guys say, so sorry if i leave something out. but i got everything you guys sent me and i don't need anything, except a bar of soap holder because they don't have those here. also they are way back ordered on spanish himnos so i need one of the little ones. also my oil on my old key chain would be nice to have as well. My departure date should be 2-8-12, but that's assuming i get my visa. and we don't know that until 5 days before we leave.
Mother, i love you too!! that was a good dream. elder hill was in brave man and he is doing medicine.  I love you so much and i hope you are doing great. tell grandma and grandpa i said hi and that i love them and that my companion is from b-town. also tell her i will get his mom's address soon. and sorry for not sending a separate letter, i just can't send a lot of letters.
Daddy, i eat grapefurit for breakfast every morning and also cracked wheat. i try and eat healthy so i don't get too fat haha how is your diet going? one of the hardest things to adjust to is not having wet wipes (daddy waddy wetwipes hahaha) but maybe you should send me some. i think. and that's cool about the motorcycle.
Michelle, that's cool about temple square, we just study and eat all day here so it's pretty nice. and we can't sell the beast!!!
Hermano i love being a district leader. it had blessed me a ton. the hermanas said they never say que suave in mexico. they say que padre or chevere or calidad haha and exito. one thing we learned about being christ like is that sometimes the correction offends God more than the action being corrected. como fue mi espanol en mi  ultima carta? me encanta la obra de Dios! y tambien Elder hill y yo ensenemos un TRC investidora anoche para 40 minutos en espanol fue muy bien. gracias por todo sus ayuda. y tambien mi companero y yo hablamos en espanol mucho
Well family, i love it here and i haven't felt home sick yet so don't worry haha i think it's just because i don't have time to think about it. sorry if i wrote a bad letter this time, it's just been hard to keep all the dear elders straight, so don't send so many haha well adios!

Oh and tell ali my departure date and everyone else too. and also that i love them.
Elder David Coffman
