Mom thanks for writing that story about you. That was really cool to read! And you know, being a Filipino/American here is like...way cool. This really is a cool opportunity to learn more about our roots, and the kind of people our ancestors were. The culture here is so different, the people are so different, the food, basically everything is different! But this is where your grandparents are from, and it's cool to know I'm where they were. And man, Ilocano is flippin weird.
Dad, not gonna lie, definitely a little bit jealous you're going bear hunting!! And that's cool you got out scouting a bit this week. Perfect day. How's the swim/bike/running? Do you have a triathlon coming up anytime soon?
Well, I don't have too much to say this week. Man, I can't believe I had an accent. I asked all the American missionaries and they all said we've been in the Philippines too long because they can't tell! Hahaha, well hey, happy new year! Aleigha have fun at your dance, ah by the way Elder Stenquist wants to write you. Is that okay..? He's so funny. All right. I love you all, be safe on new year's! Ah! Real quick, we should be having a baptism, the primary boy is getting baptised through the branch so his is on Jan 4, but DonnaBel is set for . All righty, be safe, I love you, bye-bye :)
