Dude. I love you but I have no idea what this says....
It says " how are you all doing? I am healthy and I am really thankful that the party in the village is over. Also, I am excited because of this time of year that is Christmas time because I can celebrate with the religion. Thanks for your letters from the past week. The dog I approve it looks like a lot of fun. I thought that you have already read my letter about mission tour. I love you all. I will send pictures after this."
I love you all Elder Ekaki
just an update all of my pics just got wiped. That is the truth - all of them from beginning of my mission to now. So the pics I am sending you today are from my companion. I plugged it in and there was none so I don't know but at least I have some from the blog so I am not totally out of pictures. I can't wait to have the Christmas package! Is anyone else sending a package? It has been pretty normal month beside this last week with the party going on. The island just celebrated 35 years without drinking.
Yes I am still training Elder Roberts. It has been a learning experience as you have to sometimes deal with opposition. We are officially a group, not quite a branch yet and we have group leader who has the power to lead church but I am still in charge of administrative stuff. I have a message for you - but I will have to write it out first when we get to Moroni.
I am sorry you have been feeling opposition. Can you tell me without too much detail - what kind of opposition you are facing in training your comp? Desire is the best I can answer right now. There is a lack of desire to do the work. I am trying very hard to be patient and to help motivate all 3 of them. The Lord will bless us. I just need more patience and time.

In English "Come unto Christ " we would love to invite you (name of the person) that you will come and praise God. We invite this Sunday the 10th of December. It will begin at 10 AM at the school. When you come to church we promise that you will feel Heavenly Father's love for you. Because you are a child of God. More importantly, we testify that you will also feel the power of the Infinite Atonement of Jesus Christ. We will see you here!
I want to testify that I know this church is true and that as we do the small things Christ will make up for the difference. I am excited to be a part in this work. This invitation is something I am working on to get others to come unto Christ. I know he lives and that he help me with all things. This I testify in the name of our Savior, Jesus Christ, Amen.
Let me know where you'll be on Christmas, because I am kind of planning on skyping on Christmas Eve for you guys. Well I hope all is well in Montana. I will talk to you in two weeks!!!!
