So how is everyone?!?! I´m doing really well!! I´m in an area that tends to make us sweat a little bit more, which tends to help us keep the weight off a little easier, so I´m counting my many blessings!! :) And we´ve actually been pretty lost here the last week, relying on the map and prayer a ton, because my companion is pretty new and we don´t really know the area very well, but we´ve gotten along!
We have some pretty great investigators that I have been lucky enough to inherit here in Tuxpan, and some amazing members that have taken care of us and one sister that even bought me a cake for my birthday without even knowing me! :)
And the work has been great, with lots of learning opportunities presenting themselves to me, and lots of lessons with the spirit present. We had a really nice family night with one family my first night here, last monday, with an investigator named Rafael, a yound kid 16 years old. The family was so key in helping him understand the importance of the gospel, without really even doing anything. They just invited him to their house, invited us to share the message, and bore their testimonies. It was that easy. Something that all of you can do, and by doing it you can help fulfil your responsibility of missionary work that you took upon yourselves when you got baptized. So help us out by doing that! Please! Hold your family home evenings, and invite non-member friends and the missionaries! It can do a lot!
I love this gospel and everything that it does in our lives. I love how it makes us truly happy, and the hope that it gives me that I can live with my family forever! I want every one of you to have that same hope, and know that you can have it by living the gospel! I love you and hope you all have a great week!
And I was going to send one more, the best one of all, but the computer told me that "the file size exceeds the limit for this program" or some kind of excuse like that for being a piece of chatarra, but it was a video that I took. We were walking down the street and all of a sudden we hear this really weird "Meow, meow" sound, but it didn´t sound right, like it was coming from a cat. So we turned around and found out that it was actually a parrot making cat noises! I took out my camara and captured the kodak moment on video, but you´re all just going to have to wait until after my mission to see it..:)
