Also, notice the traditional Paddock birthday

First off, you guys are the best family support system a missionary could ask for. My birthday was awesome! Having a birthday on a mission is kind of weird, especially when its in a brand new area. Birthdays really aren't that different from any other day! It was kind of nice. You guys are great though. The packages were just what I needed to make my birthday amazing. I loved all the little notes and letters from friends and family. That was probably my favorite part.To give you a little update on the war. The cockroach army is slowly decreasing in numbers. The home fort is being invaded by a much smaller number. We went from killing 20+ everytime we walked in the house after a day of work PLUS all the brave ones that come out during the day to now we're only killing about 15 a day. That's good, right?
I invite you all to read the Book of Mormon and pray about it. Even angry El Salvadorean Patricia agreed to ask God if the Book of Mormon is his book. I know you'll get an answer if you ask for it. Of that I testify in the name of Jesus Christ, amen.
I love you all. Thank you for all the Birthday wishes. You're the best!
Have a great week!
