River Crab Caldo


I honestly don’t know what is going down for Christmas because our phone doesn’t work. It’s pretty much just a shelf decoration right now. Good one about me buying a calling card here, Ha Ha! I'm in Polochic remember? We will talk on Christmas day pretty sure but most likely the night. I really don’t know, but we still have a little bit of time to figure it all out. I will let you know.

That is super sweet about everyone’s mission calls! Tell them all good luck!

Tell Jake this, “The mohawk is super legit!” Sorry to you Mom and Dad, but you have gotta be down with something so random and kind of stupid, but funny at the same time. Ha ha!

I really don’t know what we are doing for Christmas here yet. I don’t know if it would be a good idea to sing a song in English when people don’t even understand Spanish...but we shall see I guess...

What do the people do here for a living? Well, they farm and they make tortillas and they sell chips and gum, and fake ice cream (which is delicious when you can’t really remember what real ice cream tastes like!) Everyone lives in a house made out of sticks and bamboo and things of that nature!

We might go to Rio Dulce next change as a zone. That would be super sweet!

So right now I'm in Cobán! Its soooo nice here! It’s like the capital, but cleaner, less dangerous, and nicer. The weather is perfect too. Nice and cool. It’s super amazing!!! We are here because we have Christmas Conference tomorrow, which you probably already know about...But I am super excited for it! We are going to eat real food!!!! YES!!!!!!!! Now that is what I’m talking about!

So this last week we ate River Crab Caldo (River Crab Soup). However, the whole crab was in the soup so I broke that sucker open and I ate everything inside of it. EVERYTHING!! It was pretty good. The brain and eye sockets were just kind of fishy tasting and the rest was almost as good as regular crab. So it wasn’t too bad at all!!! I can just see Nicole gagging as she is reading this little story!

I wish I could tell you about investigators we have, but we really don’t have any, so keep on praying for us please!!!!

I am out of time or else I would write you all a little bit longer, but I love you and I hope you all have an amazing week and some good times before Christmas comes in a few short days when I can speak to you all in my Q'eqSpanglish!!
I love you all!
Stay Strong
Keep the Faith
Love, Elder Jordan Smith
