This is a picture of one of the little girls at the orphanage on Christmas day!

Not yet (no package), but I should get them here soon! Thanks so much
Yeah I will drink it :) (Greens First green drink)
Yes… because of the new age change and them shortening the amount of time that Missionaries are in the MTC they moved back all the release dates of the Missionaries (at least here in Angola) back by a week. 

Hey, I just wanted to tell you sorry because on Facetime we were talking about when you guys were watching the video of me speaking in Portuguese and you said that it sounded like the language they spoke on the best two years and when you said that I kind of shot you down and said no that is actually Dutch not Portuguese! So I just wanted to say sorry because I did not really realize until afterwards how I said it and I realized that it may have been a little bit rude. I do not know if that made sense, but I just wanted to apologize to you!

Thanks Mom for all that you do for me! Your love and your support and everything that you have been sending me! I really do appreciate it! Is there anything I can do for you? I realized that you have been breaking your back to try and do anything you can to help me and I feel like I have been way too selfish and self centered and just really carrying about me! So now it is my turn to ask what can I do for you and what can I go break my back over to help you? I really just want to help you any way I can. I have realized that me being here in Africa away from my family is not just hard for me, but it is hard for you as well, if not even harder for you!  So what can I do for you and the family! ?

Thank you Mom!
…Could you tell Sister Levi that I got her letter on Thanksgiving day and then I got her Christmas card on Christmas eve and I really enjoyed reading the letters she has sent me!

So this week we met with a family that is married and has three kids! They actually found the church in Portugal and went to a baptismal service and I think went to church as well and even met with the Mission President about 10 years ago! They are a really happy family and really need the Gospel. They seem so ready for it, but it is strange to me why they were not baptized already, also they are really receptive to the missionaries and really like us and they like the church from what they know. So I feel like there is some underlying thing for why they were not baptized already, but we have not figured it out yet. We have only sat with them once and when we tried to mark another appointment with them, but were not able to. I feel like this family could be awesome members of the Church and leaders, but I feel like something is stopping them. The husbands name is Victor and the wives name is lioneth, so if you could keep them in your prayers this week. We are hoping that we can sit with them again this week!
Thanks for everything Mom!
Love your little Missionary Son!

Thanks Pops for everything that you do! The work here is going slow in our area, but is starting to pick up little by little as we keep working hard! We are trying to really figure the Lords will here in Viana C.
Love you
