How are you?
So I needed to emphasize again that you should write me letters more than email. Receiving letters here is one of the most joyous feelings. Anywho. Sorry again if it sounds like I keep glorifying myself. We have had lessons on pride and I've been pretty good at being humble but every time I write home it comes out as me being the chosen one. Maybe I am. :)
Yeah we don't really have too much free time ever. But when we do, all I do is write. So right now just like yesterday and many times before, I am writing my mind. I keep getting real homesick in moments. Also I am still sick today but I'm doing a lot better.
I love each of you so much. I keep thinking of simple moments with each sibling and miss it a lot. I'm sorry kids but I miss mom and dad the most. You were my very best friends. Just like Christ, I could count on you for about anything. Believe it or not, you made me so happy. Also Ruby. And I guess Leah haha. Sure still really sad I am missing Ruby's best years. Anyways, I was going to share some spiritual stuff but I'm like out of time.

I love family of mine.
I don't know enough thai script so theres the romanized version (it's like pinyin).
I love you.
