April 29, 2013

Hola Family and Friends,
How are you all doing? I am doing pretty good, just preparing for the trip to Monterrey that we are going to take Tuesday. We have a Mission Leadership Counsel that we have to go and to learn. Should be an interesting day. I am pumped! Haha
This week was a little interesting; it rained like crazy Saturday night. It was like the first time in like 6 months that it rained, so everyone was really excited. It was a very cool storm! There was a lot of lightning and thunder. I was on the rooftop taking pictures (of course after the storm passed) haha. I took some alright pictures, but there are some cool videos. But the bad thing was that nobody really went to church on Sunday... Because of the rain... So that was the downer. 
We are working a lot with this couple named Yolanda and Luis. We are trying to get them married. Luis has a huge problem with the Word of Wisdom, but we are putting goals so that he can leave behind his addictions. But little by little, right? But he arrived to the church on Saturday night just wanting to change and actually leave behind his addictions. So we put goals and he was very ready to leave behind his addictions. Yolanda is really wanting to get baptized right away, but she can’t until she gets married to Luis. 
We are also working with another person named Kenia and she has a lot of problems, but she wants to believe in all of this. It’s just that she is having problems because of all her friends and family and the pressure that they are putting on her. But I shared with her my past story and she actually finally understood the purpose in personal prayer and to look for God. She felt like she didn’t need that much of his help (something similar to what I thought), but we invited her to really pray and look for God´s help. We are excited to teach her this week! 
Well I love the work! It’s a blast! Meet a lot of people and this work makes you very, very friendly with the people and works on your social skills. Good stuff for normal life.
I love you all very much! Have a good one and read your BOMS. Loves and Hugs
