First off...HAPPY BIRTHDAY JAMILYN!!! I felt bad that I couldn't wish you a happy birthday on your birthday, but on the 12th I remembered and I thought about you and how you're 18 years old already!! Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
hhhh. Weird. Tell
me how your day went Jamster. I love ya. Big shout out from you big Mexi brother. Wow. I am shocked. Last night I was informed that me, and
two other Elders from my district have transfers! I'm already leaving
Atlixco! It literally feels like I just got here. The time has gone by
so fast. In my first area I was there for 3 transfers, my second 4, and
here only 2. I am anxious to know where I'll be going and who my new
companion will be. Elder Ortega (my 2nd son) is staying here in Atlixco
and will be getting a new companion. Sorry but this email is going to be
a little short because as you know transfer P-days are crazy. On top of
everything that you have to do on normal P days, you have to say
goodbye to everyone. Tomorrow is the meeting in Puebla at 12:30.
Thanks for writing me Mom and Dad I really do enjoy reading your
letters every week and seeing how things are going. Like Mom was saying
to me, it helps me to feel connected to everybody. I can really just see
my mission flying by. Everybody is right, the last year goes fast. I
can't believe that I'm already leaving Atlixco. Mom, you were asking
about conference. Yes I can understand just fine. I have to pay more
attention, but it's better that way right? haha. I guess there are a few
words here and there that I didn't understand, but the Apostles use
words in English that I don't understand sometimes! When we watch it in
English we (English speaking missionaries) go into another room and get
it on the internet or satellite on a TV.
Well on Sunday we invited a new investigator to be baptized and she accepted with a date and everything. That was cool. I was happy for her. I wont be here to teach her, but hopefully I'll be able to visit her in my other area. The couple Salvador and Cristina, and Ricardo have been progressing really well and they LOVED conference. I know they'll be baptized as well. Too bad it wasn't when I was here, but I can come for their baptism. I feel good about what we've been able to accomplish here. I feel like I've learned a lot and that my Spanish has gotten that much better. I hope to improve more in my next area. I love the mission it's great!
Love each and every one of you. I send a big hug all the way from Mexico. Choose the Right!!
