Just wanted to let you know that we will be able to Skype. After taking most of our after church-___- we were able to finally get Skype to work on our Senior couple's tablet, which they were nice enough to leave for us since they will be in Connecticut. We got permission to go to their home and use it. So I will call yous guys at around ? so just get on when you wake up and I will call you and mom, i don't know if i will be able to call Amber seperately so have her on and I'll just play it by ear. That's awesome that Amanda and Mitch will be there I am excited to see them. Don't worry about presents Dad, being out here seeing how people struggle so much and barely even have a family has made me realize even more how blessed I am. I will be very grateful for whatever it is, me and nathan always just got you Twix and Kitkats anyway haha.
How is Nate feeling? That's really too bad. Has he asked for a blessing? I have become such a believer in blessings. Even though it may not exactly heal him he will be able to be strengthened from it; whether it be physically or spiritually.
This last week had its hard times but it was one of my favorites for sure and may be for the rest of my mission. Well to be honest, now that I am trying to remember what happened exactly each day, I can't remember anything beforehaha other than . So i guess I will start with haha. we had zone conferance where President gathers together a lot of zones. We watched Ephraim's Rescue which i highly recommend as well as 17 Miracles (Ask Amber she'll probably know) then we had a talent show haha. My zone leader wanted me to do a dance thing but i didn't think it'd be okay so i didn't but he - Elder Lozano - wrote a rap about Christmas and performed it. Which reminds me, look up the "Rapstoration" on facebook or maybe youtube. It's awesome!! After the talent show there was some elders beatboxing and playing the guitar and Elder Newbold called me over and told me to freestyle (I'm getting decent actually haha) and then i did a quick popping thing and Elders were asked why I didn't do that in the talent show because there were too many musical acts (they were all musical acts, except for Elder Parker who wrote a Christmas poem which was really good). After that though we got our presents and letters which was exciting.
our skype address is hazleton.elders. so add us on skype and i will accept and call you. the time i will call at will be. i may call mom first at that time actually and then i will call you guys.
I am excited to see you all and remember to have a merry christmas. there is no place for sadness on this great day for it is the day that grief and pain were conquered!
