25 March 2013

Hello how are you all doing? I am doing just fine. Just here in the beautiful city of Nuevo Laredo. It is now a good place to live.
Well I have been doing stellar in this week, the area as well. Everything is going smooth. This past week we had a lot of work to do, some interchanges and stuff. Right now there are 4 of us living in the house and we did an interchange for a day with them. Pretty cool day, I worked with Elder Parra (Great Friend), It was a good day. We walked quite a bit, and we taught this family where the husband is a member but the wife is not. She is a hard core Christian.  We talked about the restoration and it was a great lesson. She was kind of rejecting the lesson, but then she accepted it at the end and accepted a baptismal date. Good lesson.
OHH last week was Silvia´s baptism and it was magical. It was a great service and a spiritual moment. She was soo prepared and ready to take that step in her life. She is an awesome convert.
We are teaching this family, it is a part member family as well. The man that is preparing to be baptized for this week is named Macario. He is an awesome guy!! He is really wanting to be baptized. He really wants to take this step in his life. They just need to be married and then he can take that step to being baptized. 
Umm, ohh on Wednesday I saw the United States land for the first time in 15 months!!!!! Hahaha When I was on interchanges, Elder Parra and I realized that the Rio Grande River was 3 blocks away from us and we went and overlooked the city of Laredo Texas! Beautiful McDonalds and Walmart! Hahaha it was a funny moment.
Well this next week is booked. Interviews with President and all. Should be fun. 
Thanks for everything family and Friends! I love you all very much and have a great day! Enjoy your spring weather and we will see you soon
Elder Justin Powell
