every day a miracle!

Dear Justin,  I'm resending my email from last week, because I'm not sure if you saw it or had a chance to read it..... but wanted to make sure you do because they are words from my heart and want you to know that I love and miss you....
Not sure when your Pday be so I want to get this to you before so I don't miss you. How was your  week? I hope you are loving it want a great opportunity for you to be in a whole other world, I'm sure that is what it feels like another WORLD. How great is it? has your mind been blown? What is the spirit like there? How's comp and food and weather nice and warm I hope!
Sure do love you and I'm sure proud of you and I even miss you:) our home is different without you. You were a big part of our family unit and a hole was made when you left. But you need to know you are filling a hole for a new family, a hole that only you can fill and to make other family's complete forever so our little void will be ok for a short while :( and you will be home before you know it. It will seem like a dream so live every day and don't wish them away!!!!! Love every minute like I have the last nineteen years! Smile for me have fun. Be the best you can and have some fun.
Love #44 DAD


Thanks dad! didn't get that last week.. I really needed to hear that! I've been way homesick this whole week but that helped me to refocus and realize why I came out here..
Last night we did TRC and it is where we teach people that could be a member less active or not a member at all.. and we could even do it over Skype.. It was crazy how fast they talk! they asked me something and I didn't know what to say so u just bore my testimony on jose smith and the restoration and then they laughed.. then I laughed.. good experience.. ha I love and miss you dad! I really appreciate all the hard work and the example that you were to me.. I love and miss you! 

Open gym started!! It's goin good we only go three times a week for two weeks so.. Ya but Monday and today were good! Today we lost two games but only by buzzer beaters!! And Monday we only lost cuz a kid in their team wouldn't shut up because he knew they lost and we don't want to fight with them. But other than that it's been good! There are a lot of good kids!!  How's the CCM? It's it as fun or less fun then you thought it would be? Is the food good? Any really weird or crazy experiences with companions or other peoples companions yet? ;) your doing great! Keep your head up! Love you! Your favorite younger brother..Jax

HAHA KEEP killin it Jax! you're the best one out there and I know that for a fact.. Keep having lots of fun! Enjoy life!! I am trying to! ha MY stomach has been pretty bad this week! I am taking pills to help me calm down.. The spanish is coming along amazing! literally everyday is a miracle and how much spanish I learn! I Miss you like crazy! You honestly have no idea... You were by far my best friend Jax.. ( crying as I type.. no joke) I wish and hope you the very best buddy! Love you

Hola mi hermanito!! espeor que todo va bien contigo y que esas disfrutand el ccm. Te amo!!
con amor, Jordan.

Jordan............ NIO haba espanol.. yet,..! ha How have you been? i miss talking with you and hearing you speak spanish! How long did it take you to get pretty fluent in the spanish when you were in the field? I am grateful for that example that you always were to me! thanks again jordan! I am really learning how to rely on the lord will I am here.. like how I used torely on you.. you were always there for me. Thanks Jordan! love you!  

Hola Family! this week has been really hard for me! I have been having some really hard and bad stomach problems and it makes me think about home and I have just been feeling way bad this week and not focused! and then my mind starts to think that something will happen to you guys and it scares me to death... I've broke down crying because the stomach pain and missing you guys.. but... I push on.. I've gotten some medicine for my stomach yesterday and it is kind of helping.. the doctor said that sometimes stress can make your stomach create more acid than it can hold so I am taking a pill that a doctor gave me.. 
 It has been a really good week other than the stomach and missing home.. and scared about something happening to my fam.. on Mondays we try our hardest to speak only spanish and I love it! and then Tuesdays we have devotionals and then Wednesdays are Wednesdays.. then Thursdays are PDAYS!!!!! and then Friday we have a service project and then sat is Saturday. then Sunday is fun day and we learn and do a lot! I said the sacrament prayer in spanish last Sunday and I might be talking this Sunday! 
Things for momma!

We had a guy in our distrust go home because of issues.. and before he left me and my roommates gave him a blessing with president Prat!! The mtc president! way way cool! 
They are doing some remodeling in the ccm and they have a cat here and they are using a breaker to break concrete... sounds like work!;)
WE have a ton of devotionals and I learn a ton! but a lot of it...My amazing parents have already taught me.. so I'm that much more ahead of the game! 
A ton of teachers tell me that Oaxaca food is amazing and in one area there is a lot of gay people... ha

Might be going to the temple next week! on PDAY so idk when I EMAIL HOME SO JUST ALWAYS BE ON ALERT ;)
One night after a devotional.. it was on temples. as district leader had to lead a district discussion and I bore my testimony on angles and how they are still here with us and I should that pic you gave me of angle moroni and then I bore my testimony on GRandma Jo.. Cried a whole lot in front of everyone and bore testimony that angles are still here to help us in our lives.. I'm crying now as I type.. ha-ha
