hello family. that sounds really fun seeing stan again. i can{t believe he's home already.  That's awesome he gave a good talk. and thanks for sending a the pics of the new house. it sounds like all is going well out there. things are going well in caucel.this area is really different than my last one because here, the city is only about 5 years old so everything is really modern and most of the people are from different parts of mexico. its been weird getting used to the different culture and the different houses, but the ward is really awesome. it{s amazing how organized the church can be with all the technology we have. this area didn{t really have anything as far as investigators go so we were working really hard the whole week. it was a pretty good week but some pretty crazy stuff happened. first of all, we got locked out of our house because my comp lost his keys. so we were trying to get in for like a half an hour and then we decided that we could go buy some paper clips because he knows how to pick locks haha well we went to go buy some and it turned out they didn{t work and then our member told us how we could use a bottle to open the door. the good news is that it works, the bad news is that now all of our vecinos know how to get into our house.....haha well after that when we finally got into our house, and got to bed, we were sleeping when all the sudden i woke up yelling yeeeeeeeeeeeouch!because while i was sleeping, i almost had my pinky finger cut off because i stuck it in the fan that i use that has metal blades! haha so that was a really interesting day for us. But right now it{s raining haha it{s funny because i always carry my umbrella but today i took it out because it was sunny but then althesudden a bunch of clouds came so we got pretty wet. also its funny because my left shoe is really wet, but my right one is dry. well i didn{t really have time to think of a spiritual thought for yall in this week but i just want you to know that i love all of you, i love this work, and i know that Christ is the Savior of the world. i know that God loves us and i know that the Gospel blesses families. adios

the pic is a picture of the keystone to our religion and the key to our door...well now we just use a credit card but before it was this bottle haha

mother, that sounds really fun with what happened. i glad the house looks good. goodbye and i love you

mc, yup fried iguana. and it is pretty good i hear haha thats pretty crazy what happend when you ran into the mailbox. you’re crazy haha i don{t know why you like doing stuff like that haha jk but i love you lots adios

fox que bueno con las chicas haha y hasta ahora, todo va bien con mi asignacion. voy a dar mi primera capacitacion hoy. la cosa es que se me olvido prepararla en la manana asi que voy a tratar de wing it haha y gracias por las surgerencias adios

papa suene que todo va bien gontigo. te amo mucho haah i bet you liked that spanish haha but i wish i{m excited when we can go fishing again. i always liked saying we were fishing buddies te amo

Janel's note:  David actually included a picture of his pinkie finger but I thought it was a little too graphic so I didn't include it.  It looked like David probably could have used a few stitches but will be ok - I just hope he cleaned it out really good!
