Buenos Dias padres!!
That [Hump Day] package you sent me was absolutely amazing and I totally did not expect it. The photo album from all of those people I love was the best present I could have gotten. Oh I just felt so great! I can't believe it's been a year but looking back it's pretty easy to believe, haha. I have gone through SO much and grown up so much. There are so many more people that I love since a year ago. Plus I have no problem speaking the basics of Spanish. A year ago I couldn't do that! I didn't do really anything to celebrate it though... Kind of lame but I was very happy.

That's it from me this week. Thank you so much once again, the present was wonderful!
**Last week Brayden wrote that his previous companion, Elder Stoddard, "found one of mom's [stake] young women in Middletown, Ohio... she remembers both of you (me and Bruce)".
I remember Lindsey Mogensen as a young woman who showed a great deal of love for the gospel as she patiently waited for permission from her family to be baptized. Its a fantastic feeling to see her beautiful family with the temple pictured behind them!
