Well, it is that time of year again, the holidays are ready to start. Here in Mexico, signs of Halloween and Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) appeared about three weeks ago. Signs of Christmas have already appeared in WalMart (and I am not surprised). While I may be in Mexico, WalMart is still WalMart. From what I have heard though, Dia de los Muertos can actually last three or four days depending on where you are. Some regions apparently like to celebrate/honor those who died young one day, those who died this way the next, and so forth.
So, our work here continues to improve little by little. Yesterday, we finally had an investigator in church! We have two or three families that we will possibly start to teach this week if we can contact them. I guess it has just worked out this week that we have tried to contact them at the wrong time. Also, we finally have a Ward Mission Leader, and so that is going to help us as well. Hno. Carmona, who was our last Ward Mission Leader, got released and called to be the 2nd counselor in the Bishopric two months ago.
Events of the week:
- Last Monday, we helped clean out a Sister’s house. Fifteen cats in a small two room house… I won’t say more.
- Thursday, we helped another Sister finish mopping her house after it flooded after a rainstorm.
Well, here is your favorite part then Mom; the pictures. This week’s pictures are of us here in the internet doing our weekly email.
So, I think that is it for this week. Our time here is basically up. Glad to hear that all is going well despite colds. Until next week!
