Hola mi querida familia!!!

So, this week we are in the internet cyber that pretty much doesn't work again. Cause the other cyber is full of kids 'studying' for tests that are coming up this week. So I sent about a half hour trying to send my message to Pres. Gamboa (we have to do that first) and then I replied to mom and dad. And I'll have to reply to the rest next week. Sorry :( But I looked at all the pics that were sent and I LOVE them all! It looks like everyone is doing good :)

First, Happy Independence Day (yesterday) to everyone! I was remembering last year when we ate at Macayo's and watched the fireworks and had a ton of fun being together :) Good times! Next Independence Day, it will be practically time to come home...crazy!

My new favorite thing to make at home at night is milkshakes. That's something that they don't make here, and I don't know why I had never thought to make them?! lol I always use chocolate ice cream, oreos, and peanut butter. The first time I made one, I made one for my comp...but he didn't like it cause of the peanut butter. What?! How can he not like peanut butter?? lol Oh well...more milkshake for me :) haha

In the mall here in Salinas they always have old music from the states playing. This week, I heard Vanilla Ice (ice, ice, baby....) and I remembered the video we have from when I was little....good times haha.

Another experience with Luisa this week (not so spiritual like last's weeks experience..but you'll have to deal lol). We were teaching a lesson in a member's house and it was all going great (sort of). Those members are a little bit crazy... (Mom--remember the lady I told you about last week with the crazy outfit at church?? yeah, it was that family lol). Anyways, they are the only people that live close to Luisa, the dad is 1st counselor in the bishopric, and the mom is RS pres in the it was good for Luisa to get to know members :) haha We were teaching, about to finish up, and we were about to make the commitment....when Luisa kind of shouted 'There is something that is just tormenting me!' We all asked what was wrong and she was quiet for a few seconds.............and then she said 'It's just....I don't know how to tell you....ummm....' and we were telling her that she could tell us and that there was no problem and everything. And then she FINALLY said, 'Can I use your bathroom?' We all looked at each other and bursted out laughing.....we all thought she had some serious problem, but she just needed a bathroom lol. She is an interesting lady :) I hope the story is as funny in writing as it was actually being there :) If not, just laugh to make me feel good bahaha.

New seafood I tried this week: Crab. I was kinda excited to try it cause I've heard it's really good. But what a letdown!! It was not good at all lol. I had to choke it down pretending that I liked it haha. Way too much work for a little bit of meat that doesn't taste good. We had to break open the shell with our teeth and it had hair on it's was all in all gross lol.

Could you please send me a key-chain container for consecrated oil. Thanks! :)

Well, that's all for this week. I hope everything goes great this week for all of you. I love you SOOOOOOO much! Thanks for being such an amazing family :)

Love, Elder Beck
