I am in my new area, here in Salamanca, Guanajuato, in the Irapuato Zone. I am really enjoying it, the city is actually very nice. I must say I am really enjoying it here. My comp is Elder Whittle, he's a really good kid, who has about a year in the mission. He is from Riverton Utah. Hes about 6´3 and 215 pounds, he's a pretty big guy. His spanish is coming along, he struggles a little bit, but is always making progress and willing to accept suggestions. He's a really humble, quiet person, and very, very patient, but he likes to work hard which is good, we get along very well.
As for my foot, it still hurts, right now medication helps but it doesnt take the pain away like before. Today I am actually going to Leon to have a meeting with Pres. Cox and a few other Zone/District leaders, so I will talk to Sis.Cox. But until we get more Xrays of better quality, we wont know what to do.
Elder Ditto is doing well, right now he is in San Luis Potosi. He is still a trainer, but I think he will be moved up to District Leader by next change. Elder Maxfield is still an office secretary, and Elder Callen was also moved up as a district leader, so we are all doing well. As for feeling like an old timer/experienced, sometimes I do because all of the people that were in the mission when I got here are all going home. Even Elder Velez MY trainer from Irapuato is going home in August, so the mission is changing alot. As for President Cox considering who will be a District or Zone leader, I know he considers our weekly numbers, what the zone leaders opinion is about us, and our interviews with him tells him alot, other than that I am not too sure. As for the packages, I STILL havent gotten them, although I know they are in the mission offices. Today I am going to Leon for a leadership conference so I will pick them up today!!! =D! Other than that, All is very well. We were informed that Elder Bednar will be coming the 20th of this month! But we will not have interviews with him =(, just a mission conference. Either way it will be fun, and a great experience. Also, we ended this month with a little over 350 baptisms, we over shot our goal of 300 by 50 baptisms! We are all very excited. And tired, =D.
I have to run, but I love and miss you all.
Con amor, elder Salazar
