Dear Famiree, (Yes, I'm still weird Caiti >;) )
I love you all and hope you're having a wonderful Christmas. I'm sorry you can't be here with me because if you were here, you would definitely have a wonderful Christmas. It's not an option here. :) I'm having the time of my life here. I'm so grateful for the opportunity to learn and progress at the feet of the Lord's servants--to include the Apostles.... Elder Neil L. Anderson came last night and gave an excellent talk on the condescension of God. I'm so grateful for the Spirit and the witness and expounding of truth that it bears. I studied Doctrine and Covenants 93 yesterday (it's pretty much the best section in the entire Doctrine and Covenants) and I'm so grateful for the opportunity that I had to be brought up in light and truth. I'm so grateful for the opportunity to learn as our Savior did--grace for grace. I'm progressing so much here under the constant influence of the Spirit. Each today, I can see how I've changed and grown from each yesterday. I look forward to thousands more todays both here on my mission and afterwards.
Thank you all so much for your letters. I'm sorry I can't send you stuff more often; but that's not what I'm here to do. I can only send and read/open stuff (including e-mail) on P-Day (Wednesday). Also, I only get 30 minutes online to read and write all of my e-mails, so it would be much easier if you sent me letters through DearElder.com rather than e-mail because I can read those anytime on P-Day.
I love and miss you all! Thanks for the package--the Christmas tree is decorated and on my desk and the stocking is hanging from the top bunk of my bed.
P.S. Pringles are pretty stinkin' awesome...just in case you were wondering...my companions think so too...and the rest of my district...and the zone...and every missionary who's ever served a mission... ;)
P.P.S. Study the scriptures every day...they're REALLY stinkin' awesome...yes, that's better than Pringles...
P.P.P.S. I love you all!
