Learned how to sew!
Today is the first day of the new transfer!! Nothing changed for me. I'm still here in Caborca with Elder Thueson. We get along great and are excited for more time together. I am going to answer some of the questions from everyone:
-Do you drink a lot of Coke? Yeah we drink a ton of Coke. But the Coke here is way better than in the states.
-What are you reading? I have read all the approved missionary books and I'm done with Jesus the Christ. I love it!!!
-How is the language? The language is frustrating, but I can feel that I’m getting better. I'm growing in more ways then I thought I would both spiritually and mentally.
-How is the weather? The weather is really nice except in the mornings when it’s really cold!!
-Are you celebrating Thanksgiving, or any activities? No, we're not celebrating thanksgiving. I doubt there will be activities for missionaries. President will want us to work as much as possible.
-How is the Rivera family? Good. We haven’t challenged them yet. We have an appointment with them tomorrow.
Whoever said a mission is easy couldn't be more wrong, but whoever said a mission isn't worth it is even more wrong. Dad, I finally had a chance to look through the scriptures you gave me and it was so cool. Thank you so much. I'm going to start using them!!! I love you so much and I'm so grateful for your amazing example. Mom, I finally had a chance to read that talk you sent me!! Thank you so much for sending it. It's amazing and it was such a great pick me up when I really needed it. I'm so thankful for you and your wonderful example in my life!! I love you!!
I have some big news. I tried cereal for the first time ever and I didn't die. It didn't taste good or gross. So... yeah. Just thought you'd like to know that I'm growing and changing in more ways than you can imagine.
There has been a disease going around Mexico lately called Dengue. It's transferred through mosquitoes. It gives you really bad headache, stomach pain, and a fever. It last 4-7 days. More than half of the missionaries in our zone have gotten it. Earlier this week I started to have some really bad head and stomach pains to the point where I almost passed out. But it turns out I was just dehydrated so all is well.
On Friday we had an activity in the chapel. We had a Family home evening for the ward. Someone taught a lesson about families and then we played some games and ate some food. The games here are just designed to embarrass people because that’s the type of humor they like. So the games are hilarious. The activity went well and one of our investigators showed up so that was good.
We have been teaching a less active member named Margaita Marciel. She's really cool and says that she wants to go to church, but just doesn't have time. That is honestly what every single person says here. But we've been teaching her and last night we taught her husband, who isn't a member, about the restoration and then I invited him to be baptized and he accepted! We have a date set for him for the 10th of January. They're a really cool family and I hope everything turns out!
I think that's everything for now. Everything is good and at the start of a new transfer always gives us a little boost to work harder. I love you all and will see you next time on The Price is Right.
