Dec 14, 2012
I am sorry I didn't get this entered sooner. We went on vacation and I forgot the passwords for the blog. So I will be catching up alot of Karee's letters in the next few days. Receiving Karee's letters are so rewarding as she is so enthusiastic and positive. We appreciate her diligence in keeping us up to date. We will miss hearing from her on Christmas, but know she is having a wonderful experience.

Dear Familia,
  Que pasa? Just wanted to let you know some bad news. I won't be calling on Christmas day because there aren't enough phones in the MTC(Missionary Training Center) to accommidate for all missionaries. I still love you and wish you a very Merry Christmas
    I found I will be in the MTC until February 5, 2013, 9 wks. I am happy because it is so GREAT!
