Hey Hey MOM!!
OH WOW!! Talk about some good smoked turkey!! So this week was good we actually did really good!  It was one of our best weeks here in the area this transfer so that is really cool! Thanksgiving was a little bit of a drag on the work, nobody really wanted to hear anything. So that's fine, we just ate and helped out our members.  We helped one family in the ward put up their Christmas tree, that was fun! And a pain with all the lights, ijole!  It was a good time to spend with them. Oh and the next day that family's daughter got her mission call to California!! It was way cool to watch her open it! It was major de javooo (don't know how to spell that word.haha) . It was really cool. I'm so glad ya'll had a goood time in Boise. I wont lie, on Thanksgiving I was thinking about ya'll a lot and what I would be doing if I was at home with ya'll. Being away really helps ya see the things you really miss. Now trust me I miss watching some movies but if I had to choose just the things that mattered to me there wouldn't be anything besides my family and the time I can spend with them! I love you mom and family!!
I can't believe that Kylie's mom had a heart attack that is crazy! Please send her my best and call kylie and tell her I miss her and her mom is in my prayers!! And grandpa is doing better that is great news and pappa sounds like he's been staying busy which is good. OH, LEXIE MALMROSE IS GOING TO GET MARRIED!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That is awesome! if that's her choice I know she took it to the Lord first, so she must be doing what the Lord wants. She's awesome. She would have made an awesome missionary too.!! As for FHE keep it up that is great to hear ya'll are doing good with that. Well mom I've got to get going but I love ya tons and I hope you all are blessed with what God has in store for ya'll.

Hey hey Mom!!!
 How ya doing!! CONGRATZZZZZZZZ on getting your deer!! That is awesome! Good shooting ACE;)haha! Mom I love you so much you seem to have just the right things to say every time I get an Email from you!! This week has been a huge week of blessings and it would take me all day to write them out, but that's why I keep my journal up to date every day so you can read it when I get home.  I have finished one and almost finished my second. I might have to translate some of them for you but that shouldn't be to hard. So Josh Hedges and Michael got their calls to Russia and Ukraine! Well talk about an awesome mission call!! That is going to be amazing. They're going to learn a lot!! I won't lie I am a little jealous that they got to go out of the country but God sends us where he wants us. 
Oh so switch gears really quick, for Thanksgiving we are going to eat with 2 families. At one we will have smoked turkey and some other good food then the second dinner I'm not sure what we are going to eat but I know it will be good because the lady and the man are professional cooks;) I'm Excited!!! It should be a lot of fun and I'll have to send some pictures.
 Well mom I have to get going but I love you so much and I hope you're doing goood and hanging in there. Oh and how is FHE going with the family?  Mom I hope you have a great week and make sure to let the family know I miss and love them.
 I love this month I get to reflect on all the things I have in my life that bring me joy and that I'm thankful for! I love how its called Accion de gracias in Spanish.  Translated it means action of thanks. So instead of just saying I'm thankful for this and this, show it in action this Thanksgiving.  I have learned from all I have been doing and experiencing in my mission that the things I love and am most grateful for are the things I have had to work the hardest for. There is a quote that I have that Coach Wooden said and I don't know it word for word but it goes something like this, "great things take work they don't come easy, and they shouldn't, because if they did it would cheepen the value of that thing". I have really loved this quote!  For me it really fits in with Spanish. Boy, have I struggled and fought to get it down, but every time I think about it and how far I have come, how much more precious that language is to me and how much I just want to share that with whoever I come in contact with because it means something to me. I love you so much mom.  I love the family so much!  I am so grateful for you and dad and for all of my brothers and sisters, uncles and aunts, cousins, Grandma and Grandpa, Nana and Papa and especially my neices and nephews!! Thank you all!!! I love you soo much! May God bless ya'll this day of accion de gracias!!

Hey paps, Thanks for what you were able to send me it's always a pleasure to get an Email from ya! So thank you so much for the package I forgot to tell mom I got it and I love it. I am very excited to use the dvds and that new supplement looks pretty interesting.  I can't wait to see how it works! Well dad, so mom got her deer huh!! That is way exciting news!! I'm getting some jerky for Christmas right!?haha! Anyway I'm glad mom was able to fill out her tag and all went well with that.
 So really quick, this guy was putting a new door on his house, so I asked him if I could help him. He said no of course (a young man in a shirt and tie can't put a door on or somthing I don't know! )haha!  Anyway I asked what happened and he told us the house was broken into. Then he told me it happens to the best of us,  I told him that's what I hear. Then he told me it won't happen anymore, I just got a new security system, and my companion didn't really hear him, and he asked so are you going to get a security system?   The guy said yep just bought it the other day. Then my companion asked what kind?  The man said a 12 gage pump action shot gun!!hahahaha!!! I about died laughing!!  What made me laugh even more was we left and about 5 min later his daughter and her boyfriend pull up with the mom in the car. The mom gets out and says he's a great guy, he's a great guy honey your going to like him.  All I could think of is, he better like him because I know he now has a 12g pump action shot gun to look out for!!hahaha!!! It was a good laugh!  Grateful for all you do for me and I hope you and the family have a great Thanksgiving and be sure to tell mom to take pictures so I can see everybody.ha Love ya!

Hey Mom!!
 Wow I can't believe the bishopric got changed it hasn't been that long I didn't think!! Well this week was good we had a cool experience. When Elder Jorgensen and I started out this transfer we were contacting in a laundry mat.  We talked to this lady who didn't seem like she wanted us there and then we turn around and there is the manger.  He kicked us out and ya ya it was a joke.  Just the other day we were knocking doors when we ran into her again and had the opportunity to teach her and her family. No unhallowed hand can stop the work of the Lord from progressing!! I really hope something comes of this family if not I just hope their faith in Jesus Christ increases. Well mom I can't wait to try that new supplement. I have been loving the bike! I will have to tell you that story here soon it's funny.( i think) So Luke is turning 11!! I will hopefully be sending him a package here soon I'll have to check my balance on my card to get him something but I hopefully will be sending him something in the mail in the following week if i do not get it out today. Well mom I love you so much and I'm sorry this letter is short but I hope all is going well and that y'all are being blessed. So it is time to go for today but until next time;)
