its always so hard to think so early in the morning about what i can write about with whats been going on around here ... nothing way exciting like i always say just normal routines .. wake up shower get ready go to breakfast go to class study maybe teach a lesson go to lunch go to gym (if its right after lunch) go back to class study some more go to dinner go to class maybe teach another lesson plan for the next day and then go sleep and repeat. its quite exhausting after a while to be quite honest but it is what it is. its been sounding like everything has been going well.. and that my presence is getting taken over by all. haha lets see. this week we had another district leave so now we are officially the "oldest missionaries" in our zone which is really weird and hopefully its only for 2 weeks more. one thing i learned is when you are living how you are supposed to that is when change happens. so if something drastic in your life happens i guess its supposed to be a good thing because you must be living really right. so embrace it i guess. and continue living right. I got made District leader on sunday which pretty much means that i can get the mail for everyone .. but everyone already knows the combo for the mailbox so it doesnt even matter.. i also have a couple extra meetings. But dont get your hopes up that will probably be the only time that i say anything about a leadership position and that is just cause it doesnt matter. anyways i know this week is short but have a great week!!!
ok so i wrote you a lovely birthday letter and sent it but i guess they didnt read the 1100 west very well so they sent it back ... i fixed it and then i dont know what happened but i tried sending it and then just got frustrated and through it away. it was supposed to be on your birthday i promise i did it ... HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! Thanks for your letters i love the little paragraphs and then te page of talks haha they make me laugh. oh and you have one more birthday until you have to worry about feeding me again so just keep that in mind. We went to the travel office yesterday to talk to the crew and they said that they send flight plans out 10 days before your supposed to leave. (this monday) and if its not going to happen then they call you in and it gets cancelled so i guess no news is good news just pray that they dont call me down. anyways hope you had a good week! love you lots!!!
Thats good that you made dinner. i heard everyone liked it. January is a rough month but im sure that it will come soon enough. there isnt a whole lot to say because its always the same thing herebut we will find out in the next couple of weeks if ill be in spain or not. anyways good luck with work!
Portia and Lance,
Mom told me FELICIDADES!!!! I hope all is going well, i havent been able to write lately just because of busy...ness So much to do so little time you know ... PLus the temple has opened up again so thats even less letter time. and its so stressful making sure i have everyone that needs to be written written so it doesnt always get done.Anyways you guys are awesome i love you guys and miss you tons! keep chugging and praying and reading your scriptures. If it gets boring make it fun be creative. like i said one cool thing that i learned is that the Lord blesses those that are creative a little more than those that are just the same as everyone else! Keep me updated!!!

It is good to see that he is having fun and going through the experience of the MTC. I can remember my own experience and I only spent three weeks there. I was ready to leave but they certainly have a lot coming up as they get ready to leave the MTC and move on. He will probably leave the MTC on February 2nd and go some place but it really depends on how soon they think he will get his VISA. Of course life changes for us all and we are moving on in life. Things will be changed and we will have grown. Hopefully in a good direction.
Well, we love the interest in Brad. Thanks for your prayers and support. Thanks, Laurie
