Hey guys how is it going? Mom I got a kick out of your stereotype comment haha. Yeah there are a lot of times where I don't think I'm in Mexico at all, but most of the time it feel and looks just like you'd imagine Mexico to be. That's too bad that everyone is just about headed back to school already! I can't believe Jami is already a senior and Kaylee is a junior!! Keep a close eye on Kaylee because junior year always seems to be the troubled one for most people. That was interesting to hear about Taylor Hyde and the ward picnic thing. Well here comes "hump day" and I can't believe it. Apparently they call it hump day because you climb the hump the first year and then the second just blows by. It feels like the first blew by. Mom I'm pretty sure I saw in the office one time that I have the 6th of August posted as my release date. I'm guessing that it could change, but who knows. Before I forget, dad no Grandpa's letter hasn't got here yet. I've expected other letters that never arrived too...I not sure what happens sometimes. You also wanted to know a bit about my comp. Well something crazy....he was born in Feb of 95!! The same year as Jami hahaha. He is really young. We get along pretty well. We have pretty different personalities, but it works out. He only has one sister and both his parents are Doctors.
Well this week we had a baptism (as you can see in the pic). What happened is we found a little girl who hasn't been baptized yet and is 8 years old. The problem was both her parents aren't members, only her brothers and sisters and grandma. So we had to teach her and baptize her and everything. We also found some other investigators that should be good. We are doing really well here already. We hope to baptize more this month. We had a pretty cool experience this week. We headed out in a combie to one of our little towns to visit a member who was going to invite their non member friend to listen to us. We finished around 8:30 and we waited about 30 minutes for the combie and it never came! We started to think that we were going to be stranded out there haha. I said a little prayer and so did my comp and about 10 minutes later a member comes driving by and offers us a ride. Sure enough the last combie had already left. We even made it home on time! Power of prayer!
Love you guys! Keep up all the hard work. Make everyday count. Try to make weaknesses strengths!
