Yesterday was testimony meeting, I bore mine in Spanish, it went well. Lots of people told me I did great, I was definitely more nervous doing it in Spanish than English. As far as letters go, I only recieve letters when I see the president which is MINIMUM 1 time a month =(. Kind of a bummer. Last nite I smashed a rat the size of Jackson with a garden hoe, my comp was freaking out, it was awesome. I am going to make my companion be on time more, we are seriously late to everything, he loves to talk. The people here are quite tough, they are very very Catholic. I have spent the last two weeks studying and marking my bible because they love to bash with us. Also, when we knock doors they tell us *oh I read the bible no thank you.* or they set appointments with us and dont show up, so I have learned to know when to be polite and when to tell people that reading the bible isnt everything Jesus Christ taught and its not the way you're going to return to Heavenly Father. They also love when we tell them Jesus Christ established one true church and they dont have to follow the tradition of their ancestors. That's cool the 4th of July was fun, my 4th of July consisted of a ligtning storm. Living here in Mexico has given me a testimony that we really live in the promised land which is the USA. Some of the most simple things back home are so difficult for people here, eating, drinking water, finding work, disposing of trash sanitarily etc. I am definitely blessed to have been raised in America. Anyways, things are good here, im about to run out of time so Im gonna have to cut it short.
Thanks for everything and for writing me!
