Well you all seem to interested in the fact that it was 5 de Mayo yesterday, but really here in Mexico it's not that big of deal. Here in Puebla yes it is celebrated because it is the city where the battle took place, but everywhere else in Mexico it is barely celebrated at all. Here in Puebla there was a big parade on the 5 de Mayo street in town, but it was Sunday, so we weren't able to go at all or anything. Other than that I've seen some people having like family parties or dinners, but really it's probably celebrated more in the states haha. The huge thing here in Mexico is 16 de Septiembre because that is like our July 4th. Anyway how is everything going for ya'll? Sounds like it's been nice up there for a while. So you say you've been taking the dogs on walks...does that mean Jazzi is still alive?? haha. Hey Dad I thought it was interesting to hear that you take the frontrunner up to SLC everyday now. I bet that it a huge save on gas money+you don't have to worry about traffic, and you can relax on the way there. All in all it sounds like a good change to me.You mentioned that you were at work at 6:30 sharp does that mean you can get there faster too? Mom thanks for reminding me about the temple tour we did together, I have some really fond memories of that time with you too. I miss the temple. I wish that I could go. It's a great place to be. You guys should try and get there for me alright? :) I got a wedding invitation from Ashely in the mail. It looks good! Hey Ty sounds like he's doing well. I'm going to write him an email back after this. Wow I can't believe that Cordell cox and Derek Childs received there calls! The ward is going crazy right now. Good stuff.
Well this week was great. Probably one of the best weeks so far on my mission as far as missionary work. We got 2 new investigators this week and in the first lesson with one named David Salamanca, we invited him to be baptized and he accepted to be baptized this Saturday the 11th!! He is one of those that has completely been prepared by the Lord. We're just there to teach and invite him to live the Gospel. Apart from that we put another baptismal date, taught a whole bunch of investigators and have been receiving a ton of great referrals from members. It was an awesome week. So this week we are going to be trying to contact and start teaching a lot of the referrals that we've been getting, and get everything ready for David's baptism. It's awesome. This week we had some good lessons with the Beltran Leon family and everyone came to church this week except for the Dad. We had 5 investigators in church which was great. Some sad news about the Estrada family is that they ended up moving this weekend to a apartment out of our area...oh well I'm sure with time they will start listening to other missionaries and be baptized. I'm excited for next week!
Love you guys! I can't wait until I'm able to skpye with you on mother's day Sunday!! Be ready with some good questions! The Church is true. This life if tough, and sometimes things don't always go our way, or we mess up, but that doesn't mean we should give up. We can always move forward and improve thanks to the Savior. See you next week!
