Oh yeah, so I forgot to tell you last Monday, but as of last Monday, this mission is officially Mission Reynosa Mexico! How cool huh? I served in 2 different missions during my mission haha. We also met our new mission president this week, President Morales and his wife. They are awesome. He was a 70 before this calling and he´s had lots of other experiences. Also, his wife waited for him when he went on his mission haha. Pretty cool story. They have good plans for this mission and I hope that we begin to see more success. Also, in August and September, the number of missionaries will almost double and there will be many more Hermanas which is awesome!
This week was a little slow. We are having trouble finding new investigators because every person we contact in the street, generally isn´t interested, which is frustrating. But we move on. I hope we get more help from the members soon because there are many people we can´t teach because whenever it is just a woman, we can´t teach her unless we have another man there. And it seems like the time of 11 in the morning to 5 in the afternoon, no one is able to help us. This is when we walk. And walk. And walk. And walk. Also it´s starting to get hot. Like, really hot. It´s called La cuñada. 40 days of hot. haha. Then you might say, well in Arizona it gets hotter then here. This is true, but every missionary in Arizona has an airconditioner in their house and cars. At least a bike. We get to walk. Not trying to complain sorry. It´s still enjoyable when we have those good lessons where you can really feel the spririt. Thats what keeps me going. It seems like there is always something hurting in my body on this mission though. Whether it´s a blister, some muscle in my leg, or something, something is always hurting. I never had problems like this before my mission haha. I´ve actually heard of people going on their missions and having more physical problems just while they are on their mission. Satan´s tryin to get to me, but ya´ll know that won´t work!
Normally this would be the begining of a new cambio, or.. oh dang whats it called in English.. oh transfer. but this transfer is 2 weeks longer so that it doesn´t start the same time as the other mission in Mexico or something like that, I´m not too sure but I´ll find out if I move next week but it´s likely I´ll stay here with Elder Parra. Which would be okay but I kinda want to be with a different companion.
I can´t think of anything else I need to tell you, other than I know why I´m here. It´s to invite others to come unto Christ by helping them recieve the restored gospel through faith in Jesus Christ and his atonement, repentance, baptism, recieving the gift of the holy ghost, and enduring to the end. If anyone asks you what I do as a missionary, that´s it, or any missionary actually. I know this church and this work is true without a doubt, and if any of you have doubts, All you gotta do is read that blue book, and pray to ask if it´s true. I know that if you do that, you will recieve an answer through the holy ghost that it is true. I know, because I did the very same thing, and now, I teach people how they can recieve these wonderfull blessing that the restored gospel of Jesus Christ has for everyone that accepts it. I Love you All! Have a great week!!
With much Love,
