If you serve a mission faithfully and well, you will be a better husband, you will be a better father, you will be a better student, a better worker in your chosen vocation. Love is of the essence of this missionary work. Selflessness is of its very nature. Self-discipline is its requirement. Prayer opens its reservoir of power. ~ Gordon B. Hinckley

Woohoo! finally a week where I'm alright and in great shape! i took pills and feel as good as ever, so don't worry about me! I think its because the people here know we don't drink the tap water so all they do is give us soda. I'm cutting back, i have had like 2 in 2 weeks.

Everything here in the mission is wonderful! except President goes home on the first, and Elder Murray, the cool older elder couple guy who loves golf! but it will be different to have President Lee here, things will change, i don't like that, one year with my first, and my last year with another! but oh well.

So I'm almost positive I'm going up next transfer, since every leader and there mom is going home this transfer and there is no one who will be leaders. OK my comps group has like 30 people in it, 4 were APs, there is like 12 ZLs, and many district leaders! and if its not next transfer its the one after, and ill probably get a kid, aka there is 20 Americans coming in to Santiago, including Brody Bearman., so it will be cool! kind of scary though. (I'm still trying to figure out this missionary talk, kid is new missionary, right???)

We have taught allot of cool people this week! our investigators continue to progress and i love teaching them! Elder Spragg and i are teaching very hard getting lost in the work. tonight we have a activity in the church, unless it rains cause no one goes in the rain. Its so dumb, they have this superstition if they get wet by rain they will get sick, but they play in the water every day, its weird!

My comp went to visit an old area with his old comp, Elder Baker ha ha ha he is so funny. We met up in Santiago, Monday, and ate McDonald's lunch after zone meeting. Then i went back to Esperanza with Elder Beckstead, hes from Utah, and was senior comp, ha ha felt weird. We got back late like at 6 but we still taught 4 good lessons! ten we went back to Santiago Tuesday morning to eat Micky Ds breakfast! so good, then we went back to Esperanza.

Well sounds like all is well in Arizona, I'm glad your feeling better Dad! stay healthy, so i broke the record for most trips to the hospital huh... wow sweet! ya it makes it really hard to focus on the mission when your always sick and kill your first three comps! but i can handle it. Sorry mom your sad that Jakelle ended dance ha ha, wait (warning non missionary word) CRAP! so am i, no more Disneyland. dang it!

Well Elder Murray, the couple missionary, is going to call me every day starting Thursday to give me updates on my favorite event ever! ha ha figure it out yet.... go Tiger! (US Open)
Well OK i have to go, i love you all!
Elder Westergard
