Mom, thank you for everything.  I hope you had a great Christmas, it really didn't feel like Christmas here but that call was such a perfect gift.  Sorry for being tired for the first part of the call.   I know why I am out here and nothing will stop me doing from what I'm called to do. 

I'm glad you guys had a great Christmas.  I did too after the call I got 2 hrs of sleep then did the daily Sunday but really to tell you the truth " i felt like i was on top of the world " and everything was perfect out of all the missionary calls my call was the best ever thank you but I wish I could of talked to everyone a little more and Luke more.

So what did everyone make each other, Chris was telling me but then he just stopped.  I think he was just overwhelmed with the great Christmas.  I'm glad you had a great time with the homeless thing when I get back I want to do that with you, so is that a new tradition?  I miss you guys more then anything and love you. I am so glad i could give you a better vision of things. I am better at just telling about things rather then  writing sorry. I am glad everyone loved their letters.  How was the call with Parker?

That's way nice of Shaun to come over to talk to me.  Thats the first time in I don't know how many years not seeing Shaun on Christmas morning, I miss it. Thanks so much for letting Madison come over.  Gosh the call was amazing but hurt so bad too.  Thanks for everything mom and Heywood family!!!!  Don't worry about the present I'm sure it will show up soon.  The call was the best gift, thank you.
love love love

It's all about THE phone call this time of year...

So I'm calling at 3:00 in the morning on the 26th of Dec but that will be for you noon on Dec 25.   I will call you then if you could call back that would be amazing.  I can't wait Mom like really I love you all.  Grandma sent some pics from thanksgiving, oh my I miss our backyard,  I miss everything.  I hope my call doesn't interfere with Parkers but really this is the plan.  I pray that everything will go great and thanks for inviting Madison. Mom, love you, I wouldn't be the person I am today without you.  Gosh I cant wait.  Have your questions ready.

As for missionary work for the homeless all you have to do is just love them.  Open your mouth and speak and pray for the spirit the spirit will help you.  Love them they are our brothers and sisters.  Tell Chris, Dana and Luke to open their mouths and never stop smiling.  Talk with confidence because they are just as nervous as you are too. Ask inspiring questions, get to know them and don't ask them yes or no questions.  Be that shining person for them that day.  Read preach my gospel on how to talk to people, we have preach my gospel for a reason so for family night go over preach my gospel.

love love love you elder heywood

I cant wait to call, keep praying this will all work out.

The quote of the week "you cant get much done in life if you only work on the days you feel good" Jerry West.  Think about that one I think Dad will like that one.

So big news me and my comp will both be staying in Tangub for the holidays.  Jared Heywood called to serve in Tangub for 2 years boooooyyahh.  We had 2 baptisms this last Saturday, they were Russel and Sharramaie Quizanna 9 and 8 years old.  They are awesome but they are Tagalog so its fun to try to teach the them in Tagalog but they understand illongo.   Everything is good I'm way stoked to stay for the holidays.  I don't know what's going to happen on calling you, I will find out this week and will let you know.  This week was way slow, bad week we got the shaft from a lot of our investigators and less active members.  Some of the excuses they come up with are so funny, I will tell you about them when I call.  Everything is way good just have a lot of questions for me when I call.  About my emails, I wish i could tell you everything but there is no way and I suck at typing so sorry if my letters aren't as good as Parkers.  You guys excited for big P man to come back.

I'm glad our grandparents are hanging in there.  Send them my love.  Oh so I was going to mail a package today but yeah it cost 1,400 pesos to mail so yeah I don't have that much so I will have to just send it next week holy crap that's expensive I'm sorry you really don't have to send a package I know how expensive they are.
Thats an exciting win for asu. Exciting for Dana and her cheer and Chris and the band sounds like a swell week.  I cant believe its December.   

Well sorry this week wasnt' to fun but this month will be fun hopefully so I can write some good things next week.
