Hey mom and dad!
Things here are going ok here. Elder Holt and I have been working like dogs!! So we are really tired. We got a call from President last night and Elder Holt got transferred. It turns out that Elder Holt is leaving this morning. I will be getting a new companion named Elder Toutai from Fontana California. His name is pronounced “TOE-TIE", he’s a big Samoan kid. Since he is from Fontana California we will have a lot in common.
Pres decided to make a few quick changes because we are going for 400 baptisms’s this month and he didn’t want to make a lot of changes all at one time because baptisms would drop due to all the changes.
I am sad to see Elder Holt go because we worked really well together but I am very excited to be with a Samoan elder! Elder Holt was a really fun companion, even though we didn’t have and aren’t having much success we had a lot fun being together. Elder Holt is headed to Aguascalientes and will be with one of my old companions from San Luis Potosi named Elder Kay. I will now be Senior Zone leader.
Anyways, we are working really hard. In the mission right now we have around 200 baptisms so we only need 200 more.
It has been pretty hot here lately, I have been trying to drink a lot of water throughout the day and it helps a lot. We get around by walking, or taking buses and taxis. We use a lot of taxis which cost 25-35 pesos ($2.50 - $3.50) because a lot times we have to travel from one side of the city to another to do baptism interviews.
Congratulations to Jarom Olsen and Colin Price who are starting the Journey. Jarom will be very close to me when he gets here to Mexico. The Guadalajara South Mission borders with the Mexico, Leon mission. =D. Actually the Mexico Leon mission used to include all of the area that is now the Guadalajara South, but to make it easier for the mission president they cut it off of this mission and named it Guadalajara South. Right now here in the mission we are all very enthusiastic because since May till now The Mexico Leon mission has gone from being in last place in baptisms to number 1!! So we are very enthusiastic!
I am very, very excited for Nate and Jen, that is awesome! I am even more excited that the baby is due in April and I will be able to be there for everything.
I am a little out of time but my foot is well, my spirits are up and we are working hard. THANK YOU for ALL the love and support.
Gotta run! Love ya!
P.S. Put this on the blog...Congratulations Jen and Nate!!!! I’m guessing a girl!
