Sir Justin it Friday morning and I can't sleep I'm thinking of you and had a few thought I wanted to share with you. First off I promise that we as a family will be safe here or were ever we go. There is no reason for you to worry about us, I'm sorry but even as we go through life's challenges and you are in MX, There's not much you can do, it is a waste of you time and energy to stress about us:))) " if you can't fix it don't worry about it" ones again I PROMISE we will be fine. We can handle tough things as a family, we have done it before and will have to do it again:))) it's not like we have been in a trench up to our heads with water filling it. Oh we have done that! And it all work out :) and was even a little FUN!
Second off you know this adventure was going to be hard, the CCM will probably be the easy part of your mission. The next 22 months will be hard. Sorry but that is life. But you have had challenges in your life before and you over came. And in those challenges there were small blessing, take the time to find the blessing. And you will see how much you have grown from those darn challenges:)))) enjoy them they make you better and stronger. Look them in the face then run them over!!!
Third and last when you hit a wall what do you do? Do you remember 225 lbs and you earthly father helping you with 1 LITTLE FINGER!!! Will know it's time to let you father in heaven spot you! You've been in MX. Just over a month did you think you would have the language down that fast? Give yourself a brake and a little time IT WILL COME give it time and let The Lord spot you " for with The Lord nothing is impossible " don't be afraid to ask for miracles you are aloud just be patient :)))
YOU CAN DO THIS I've seen you do harder things
made it to oaxaca safley! had a breakfast! and the mission pres is way cool and so are the other missionaries! ill talk to you guys next monday! made it here safely! love you and miss you guys!

Speaking of crhistmas music.. me and some kids in the disrtict during gym time stayed in the tienda because they were playing american christmas music so we bought drinks ans sat down and listned forr a good 45 min.. made me way sad and homesick, ;) ha some of the store people took pics of us and laughed.. way fun!! ha
I tried to hem my pants and just did one leg.. so well see how is goes and if it works then ill do the other one too! and today i washed all my pants so they are clean for the field.!!
The spanish i feel has hit a wall and im stalling... ha this whole week, just been way frustrated and trying the best i can.. But i might not be speaking the spanish ive been learning.. in oaxaca becasue its so differernt.. ha
Thank you for your prayeers... i pray everyday for you guys too! the stomach is doing good! fasst sunday was alright! we all bore testimony and presidnt pratt came to our meeeting so he heard me bare testimony! then later that night for the devo we had a live christmas devo and for some reason during that i kept thinking about home and had thoughts like somthing was going to happen to you and dad when you left to get jace.. but i prayed for comfort and then the devo the choir sang oh come all ye faithfull.. and the spirit hit me so hard.. and i just balled... i know you will be ok and ill be able to skype with ya on christmas!1
