to go a mile, go with him twain.

We visited a cool beach town in Corinto this week and got a free ride back to our house which does not happen often. 
 Saturday night our lunch seta hosted a Quinceañera for a close friend.  They were busting serious music in their house.  Hey Dad I know you are a man of music.  I have a song for you to listen to, it's called "7 Dias,"  by Romeo Santos Romeo Santos That night she fed us sandwiches, beans, cake, and soda.  Here in Divino Nino we are fed very well.  We actually had to tell our seta to slow it down a bit. 

Elder Scaggs and Elder Smith 

 Oh my gosh I'm so thankful to hear from you guys, I love it!!!!!  Please keep the updates coming.  I love it!  This week was a huge game changer.  I got a new companion and his name is Elder Reese.  He knows Spanish very well, and I already see my Spanish improving because of him.  I am so thankful for his help on my mission.  This week was odd, we were really just trying to get our legs under us.  We found some cool investigators that we will visit again this week.

Easton, Grandpa, Dad, and Alex 2014
Easton knows how to do it right.
He helped build our garage.

I learned a huge lesson this week about goals and doing things right.  We were meeting with these people, and during our lesson the "electrician" came by to fix this woman's power.  He pulled a cable out of the ground, just YANKED it up and put some tape on it.  Then he buried it in the ground again, maybe 2 inches below the ground.  It made me realize a few things.   1. America is Heaven   2.  Things that are valuable do not come fast and without work.  It made me realize that my Spanish is not going to come fast.  My teaching skills will not come fast.  They will come slow and steady with lots and lots of hard work.  When I finally have the skills I want they will be solid and valuable.  This may seem obvious to you, Mom and Dad, but as an 18 year old missionary, it's a game changer.  I'm working hard and enjoying my time here.  My goals this next week are to improve my Spanish and teaching skills every day.

Your advice is golden Dad, I am learning a lot.  Thank you for your influence throughout my life. Please keep the Christmas Tree up!!!!!!  Keep it up!!
When Easton was called on his mission David let everyone know that he was going to keep the tree up until Easton came home.  I thought about taking it down this month but.............. we won't be doing that now:)
