Its good to be writing you all again this week!
First of all, Thanks a ton for the birthday envelope that you sent me!
i enjoyed the tape you sent! i felt like i was right there in the
kitchen. My bros are so funny in those tapes! They´ve changed a lot
though, even in their voices, next time i hear your voices it´ll be
As for my b-day, we went to a members house for breakfast and that
was nice! then in the afternoon an investgator gave me a cake! and
it was awesome! The mission president and his wife called and sang
happy birthday in english. they are such great examples of the pure
love of christ. everytime i talk with them i feel their love.
Also this week, I have a new companion!!! Transfers left and right
these days. only this time i didnt lose a companion, we just
received another, Now we´re a trio. Elder lope, Elder Flores, and
Elder lloyd! Elder flores is from my same generation, or in
other words he started the mission the same day i did, and he´ll be
going home the same day! he´s from Baja California South, a city
called Los Cabos, or in other words, the Mexico Culiacan mission,
he lives in the mission where landon is serving! Cool eh?
i dont know if you guys have the pics from my first area, but there´s
a pic where i´m with my district, and we´re all in a room in the
church wearing blue shirts with a white dragon thing, There are two
mexican elders in that pic, and the one that isnt elder tlachi is
Elder Flores. only in that pic he´s about 40 pounds heavier.
he´s lost a ton of weight in the last two years. haha.
not going to lie. i think he´s a bit more trunky than i am. but i´m
sure theres a reason why the lord wants us together, the three of us.
The good news is we´re going to baptize this week!!!!! yahoooo! una
hermana que se llama C! she´s living with some members and
has come to church the last three weeks and loves it! she´s been
passing for some pretty serious problems in her life. shes seperated
from her husband, and her husband kidnapped her baby. its crazy. but
she´s super prepared and excited for the friday!
also this past week we had a Noche Mexicana, in the church. its
basically just a huge ward party for mexican independence day. i have
some awesome pics i´ll show you when i get home! there was a lot of
traditional mexican dancing, and a lot of mexican food. we had a ton
of investigators there and all in all i think there were 220 people in
attendance, so that was great!
well fam. hope you have a great week. love ya´ll A TON.
