12/15/11 Hola everyone!

Tis the Christmas season, no? Although there's no nieve (snow)..... it's beginning to feel like Christmas.
On Tuesday night, we had the most wonderful devotional by Elaine S. Dalton - the YW Gen. President! She talked to us all about spiritual Christmas gifts and focusing on The Savior this holiday season. It was wonderful. It really got me into the Christmas spirit. ... Speaking of Christmas, I am LOVING these "Doce dias de Navidad". I open my gift first thing every morning!! And all my roomates are so jealous. Thank you so much family :) Seriously. Especially for the V8 Fusion...... It was a hit among my roomates. Ha :)

So I have now offically joined the missionary choir here. I'm still a tenor :) We sing at all the Tuesday night devotionals and it's so great! It helps you feel The Spirit better throughout the day.

Oh! Speaking of singing, last Sunday night the BYU Men's Chorus came and put on a concert for us. It was phenomonal! Did you know they are the biggest university all-men's choir in the nation?? They were sooo good. It was fun. They even sang one of my chamber Christmas songs from last year - "Fum Fum Fum". And shout out to Mr. Seth Bott - he is a great singer.

In other news, the MTC health clinic here mis-diagnosed my ear infection, and it turns out it's a bigger problem with pressure and fluid building up around my eardrum I think... I still can't really hear. Haha. So Elder Paskett and I are going to an ENT specialist tomorrow morning so they can check it out. I get to leave campus!! I haven't ridden in a car for a month!! It will be sweet to see the real world again :)

Also Mom, thanks for forwarding that letter from Elder Walker. He is doing so well and he gave me some words of encouragement pertaining to learning the language better (he's speaking spanish too). While we're talking about missionaries.... I AM SO EXCITED FOR NATHAN!!!!! AH!!! That's the coolest thing ever. I want to talk to him about it. I know he's gonna be so great. Brazil will be super sweet. Lastly in that letter, I want to thank my hot little bro Adam, for the sweetest card ever! I almost cried when I opened it. You are an artist, my man. The Christmas tree looked great! I miss you so much little dude.

I sent some pictures a few days ago, so hopefully you get them soon. I sent like 50 of them, so hopefully that will keep you at bay, mother. Hah :)

Everything is going great here, don't worry about me. I even make my bed every day.

I hope you're all doing well and be safe! I love each and every one of you!

Con amor,

Elder Clarke

P.S..... Ether 12:41 is awesome.
