Hey everyone what's goin' on? Here we are in another Monday it's hard to believe. Sounds like everyone is busy and well as usual :) Dad I'm glad you finally decided to go skiing haha. Thanks for sharing some of your experiences with your Sunday School class, sounds like it's going good for you. Anyway you asked a little about the weather and growing seasons here. They have been harvesting their crops basically ever since I got here off and on, and apparently they are going to plant again for the next harvest at the end of this month. Right now we are in the dry season, so it hardly ever rains. They say that the rainy seasons are in like June, July, and August. Right now in Feb. and March it's pretty windy up here, but not too bad. It's always been warm in the day, but it's starting to warm up even more in the days and nights. Also, you asked about transfers. Yes we have transfers in one week on the 17 we will know about the transfers and on the 19 we have the change meeting in Puebla (thats if one of us has changes or not). I love the people here and the area, but I've been here for quite a while now, so I'd say I'm ready for a change, but we'll see what happens. Whatever happens will be the Lord's will, so I'm not worried. Let me know how the little trip to St. George goes. I hope you guys have fun. You better be careful, Tyler and Cam are going to throw a party at the house while you're in St. George ;)
Well it was a pretty normal week here in Atexcac. The days start to blend together sometimes, they are all pretty similar. We served a lot as usual and visited a lot of less-active members. It was actually a pretty slow week, but we made a lot of appointments for this week, so that should be good. Friday we had interchanges/splits with our district. Elder Olvera went to the lower area of Atexcac with Elder Matt and Elder Villa came up here with me. Elder Villa has 4 months on the mission, so it was a rookie companionship for a day. He actually arrived here in Puebla the same day as I did, but he is native, so he was only in the MTC for a couple of weeks. It went really well. Something cool/interesting happened when Elder Villa and I came back home. The people were waiting for us to arrive so that we could give one of the grand kids a blessed. Apparently he saw a evil spirit of a ghost. So we prayed and gave a blessing on the home, and then we blessed their grand kid who saw the evil spirit. A lot of interesting things happen out here in Mexico :) Anyway yesterday we had a lesson with Rodolfo the other nino who is 10 years old that is going to get baptized. We set a date for him, and also re-set the date for Ennis, both for the 24th of Feb after the conference. I hope everything goes as planned...or I guess if I have transfers then I won't be here. Whatever happens is fine. Oh also, tomorrow we have interviews with our zone in Nealtican with President Reeves. That should go well, It's always good to see President.
Well I better finish up. Thank you so much for all of your love and support each passing week. I love hearing from you and how you're all doing. Keep up the good work. Oh I got a whole bunch of letters this week...like 7. I finally got the letter from G n G Ellsworth that they sent a long time ago, and the Christmas card from the family. It's cool! Thanks for sending it. I think what happens is it probably takes a week or so to get to Mexico, but by the time they sort it, pass it to the leaders, and get it to us its like a month. Anyway I hope you all have a great week. I'm really having the experience of my life out here. I'm so grateful to be serving the Lord and preaching the simple truths of the Gospel that have the power to change to lives of others. We are all SO blessed. Until next week!
