Kia ora family!!!

what’s up family!!!! Happy New Year!!! 2011!!! Crazy here in the mission in 2009 and now its 2011! time is sure flying...but yeah sounds like you guys had a fun as week...with the usual ae...mum and dad getting old ae...hahaha crackup hard...i miss it though hard ae...i think more than anything is just spending time with you guys...those pics that you sent of the hike looked mean as...Hawaii’s so beautiful family...we live in paradise for real’s....but really family happy new year...i hope that this year will be filled of growth for each and every one of us....i have set a few goals that i would like to accomplish in this upcoming year and hope that i will be able to complete with them...goal setting and planification has been something that I’ve really come to appreciate here in the mission....if we set no goals, we won’t get nowhere haha that’s basically how it’s like paddling in an ocean without I’ve come up with an outline of a plan that i want to do to help me meet my goals...and we´ll see how things turn out....crakup ae...who’d ever think that id be making plans and goals and stuff? but it’s true....we set ourselves up for failure when we make goals without plans to fulfill’s the acts of our faith... it’s us showing the lord our true desires to be better and it shows our humility and dependability that we have in him. If we fail to plan, we plan to fail i hope that with our New Year resolutions this year we can show our faith and true desires by making up a plan to complete with what we want to do. i promise you that as we do this, our percentage of completing with our goals will increase and lord will help and bless us. I’m so excited for this upcoming year and all the time that I have to learn and grow. The mission is awesome ae family...
this week was been a hard one for me and my companion...especially during these times of festivities...the people get kind of crazy and harden their hearts a lil bit more ae hahaha so yeah was along one....and mum new years here in chile is a big holiday too hahaha for real’s they go all out with huge firework shows and all...but that night we had gone with a member to go see was mean as...i put a few pics in so you can see how that was...but yah the next day we saw on the news that there was three hundred tons of garbage in the whole of santiago after the new year’s celebration!! hahaha crackup ae..but yeah it was pretty and elder peck..idk we´re trying hard we are working hard and all but having a hard time seeing the fruits...and it’s been eating away at my companion and his faith...and it’s been kind of hard having to be the one to be strong if you know what i he´s new and all so i guess coming from the mtc he thought that missionary work was a walk in the park and all and finally reality is hitting him and he doesn’t know what to do you know...but i try to talk with him, be positive and all you know but it’s been’s been taking a toll on me too I’m not going to lie but starting today ready to go hard....i know what we need to do. So we are just going to have to do it... D&C 130:21 says, And when we obtain any blessing from God, it is by obedience to that law upon which it is predicated...obedience is fundamental family...its the base of everything and anything...if we want any blessing from god its comes only thru our starting today we going to do a purification process to help us be more obedient so that the lord can bless us... mosiah 2:22...And behold, all that he requires of you is to keep his commandments; and he has promised you that if ye would keep his commandments ye should prosper in the land; and he never doth vary from that which he hath said; therefore, if ye do keep his commandments he doth bless you and prosper you....sorry for all the preaching but it’s been the only thing on my mind for the longest time and it’s been god pretty much slapping me in my this has been me for this past week and what i want to do to start this new week off..i want to be a successful missionary and i know what i gotta just gotta do i love you guys so much...there’s always room to improve...there’s always things that we can change to be better and I’m so grateful to have learnt all of this here on the mission as a servant of the lord....if anything he has served me more than i could have ever served him and I’m so grateful for all the things that he has given me and helped me with to learn...this church is true....its principals lived is the only way to gain a testimony of its truthfulness...and is the only thing that really brings us true happiness in this life. i know our savior lives, and he does love us. mum and dad...thanks for everything...i love you guys so much....thanks for establishing our home upon the gospel of Jesus Christ. keep going hard and keep the family strong...send my love to gramz and all the other, ash, and lia...i love you guys so good examples and always remember who you are....represent hard..Until next week my beautiful family, with all my love,
