well first i`ll answer moms questions.
my area is about three and a half hours from the mission offices, in bus. it`s a town with lots of surrounding "villages" sometimes i get a good laugh out of your word usage mom haha. the landscape is way different. there are lots of hills and it`s really pretty. tons of trees. it`s pure jungle. lots of cool things to see. like today when we finish writing we are going to go see a cool sight thats called ruiz cortinez. it`s just sight seeing. there is a store that comes from walmart thats called bodega auerrera thats wal mart brand but a lot smaller. there are no restaurants by your term of the word but there are lots of places that sell food. the new apartment is good. it was way way dirty when i got there but i gave it a good cleaning last munday. we have a small air conditioner where we sleep that helps alot. but it really isn`t that hot here. just really humid and rainy. in the night it cools down.
well i hope that answered your questions.
this week we couldn`t get ivan married cause we are waiting on the paper work but tomorrow we alreay have the appointment for the wedding at nine a clock. and his baptism is tomorrow at 4. we worked hard all week and couldn`t really find anything until yesterday that we found an awesome family of four that i`m pretty sure is gonna get baptized. they accepted fecha para el 1 de septiembre. yesterday we did an awesome presentation in the sacrament meeting of another branch. it consists of a lot of singing and a few messages shared by the missionaries. it`s like the primary program but for missionaries. we got about half the zone involved and it turned out really good. it`s something we will be doing in every one of the branches in these upcoming months. really espiritual.
well thats about it. oh yeah. this week is president treviños birthday so we are all going to veracurz on the thursday to celebrate it.
