Hola Hola Hola

hola familia. leó sus otra e mails y it took como viente minutos a traducir la carta de dayne. entoses solo tengo a cerca cinco más minutos a escribir mi carta a ustedes. esta semana estuvó muy bien. ensenó trec lecciones en espaniol, y cada meal yo hablo solo español a los latinos. escribé un discurso todo en español y solo buscé como dos palabras in el diccionario. apprendo mas cada dia sobre español, y mas importante sobre el evangelio y las obras del espiritu. me les amo aprender. (ha i dont know if that is correct, we learned direct object pronouns ayer). pues eso es todo puedo decir en español entoses, hasta proximo semana. *

well that was my spanish for the week. you should be impressed because I dont even have anything with me, that was all out of my head. i dont know if it was all correcto, but i think it was close. well another week goes by, its hard to believe that ive been here two weeks now. it went by like a dream. i leave the ccm in 4 weeks and then my practice time is over. but i think i will get better. on saturday we got to go to the temple and talk to the members there. i was pleasantly surprised because i could understand about 60 percent of what was said to me. but i think they talked slow to help me out. tomorrow we get to go to the central park and contact, and try to place books of mormon. im so excited, well see how it goes.

i got your dear elder letters last night that was really great to hear from you all. those and your e-mails make me feel closer to you all. i love you all so much, thank you for your love and support. in general conference elder holland spoke of how he didn’t feel he had given his parents enough gratitude for the things they did for him, and i feel to some extent the same way. im not much of a talker, but i hope all of you back home know of my gratitude. every day i realize how great my childhood and youth was, and its all because of those who always loved and supported me. so thanks to everyone for every thing.

well ive got about 8 minutes left, so what else can i say. ha its hard i dont reall know what to say. right now i can look out and see the spires of the temple, its small but very beautiful. on sunday i had to give the prayer in spanish, it was short but i think i didnt say anything crude or offensive, that’s always a plus. at lunch one time i was trying to ask one of the latinos if it was bad manners or not to eat something with my fingers but instead i said ¿esta bien yo como con mi pedos? ha they laughed at me. well thats my time for this week . keep praying for me, and i will for you. i love you all so much and im excited to hear from you. thanks for all love Elder Hawk+obson

* I went to google translate for the beginning of Justin’s letter
hello family. I read your other e-mails and it took like twenty minutes to translate the letter from Dayne. I have only about five more minutes to write my letter to you. This week was great. I taught three lessons in spanish, and every meal I speak only Spanish to Latinos. I wrote a speech all in Spanish and only looked up like two words in the dictionary. I understand more spanish every day, and most important about the gospel and the work of the spirit. I love learning them. (Ha i dont know if that is correct, we learned direct object pronouns yesterday). Well, that is all I can say in Spanish, until next week.
