hahah i like the pics you sent. well this week was good.  I’m glad you guys had a good Thanksgiving. Thats a bummer about the Raiders and i am glad i didnt have to hear mothers victory laugh haahha but our Thanksgiving was just a normal day except we played football again. we did it a couple of times this week and it was really good. i was going to buy some big burritos for dinner but everyone kept buying us pan dulce in the street because they always buy it when it is "cold" here. hah yeah it has been cold here for the natives. its funny to see them in coats and scarves and with gloves and all that. they always think we are crazy when we are just walking around in our normal clothes. especially in the morning when we go out to play we are in shorts and tee shirt and everyone must think we are crazy especially because we are playing football instead of futbol haha but yeah so no thanksgiving dinner but i took a moment to think of how you guys were and how the dinner was. i am glad you could go down with the Drews and Bowns as well.

well this week we had another big noche de hogar. they work out really well. i think you guys should try and invite people to your family nights you have. and also there are a lot of really cool videos the church has on or at least i think they are cool because i dont see any other movies haha. its kinda like missionary goggles where you start thinking every girl is super cute haha so you start thinking every movie the church makes is way cool and funny as well and really they are just normal. 

the week went well and it was weird because every one of our investigators was going well for their baptisms and then all on the same day they started having problems.  fortunately, we were able to fix the problems but its a testimony builder that satan is real. he is trying just as hard as God is. he never sleeps and his goal is to ruin our lives. read and pray always. in Matt i think or maybe Luke, when Jesus is in Gethsemane, he says velad and pray, for the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak. or something like that. so always remember to read the word of God.  Recently we have been listing to talks from old general conferences. i would highly suggest it.  there are so many good messages we have had in the last 30 years and its a lot more valuable than the music we listen to in the car. you should listen to one by Elder Holland called  safety for the soul. but you have to listen to it. his voice is so powerful.  i love it.  and one by Ezra Taft Benson called the Book of Mormon a Keystone to Our Religion.  There are so many good ones.  just look on and you can listen to them and download them well i guess you know how to do that but yeah do it. They are really good and the current prophets words are more important than what was said anciently.

well i love you guys a lot and thanks for the music and everything. i am still looking for the package and I’ll open it on Christmas......maybe hahahahaha adios

That's a great suggestion to keep reading/listening to the General Conference talks.
