thanks for the emails this week. sounds like dads fishing trip was great. tara i always love your classic stories.
well i´m loving the tuxtlas. there is a lot of work to be done here. we are working so the district can become a stake in octubre. and we think it´s gonna happen. the branch is good. there are a lot of problems with the leadership and we end up having to do about everything like give home teaching assignments, conduct branch council, etc etc. when it becomes a stake, the leadership will get changed out and it should be better. my companion, elder bahr is really good. we are still getting adjusted to the changes but it looks like we´ll be a good companionship. the zone is huge, we are 30 missionaries. (one senor missionary couple) and there is lots of work to do. the tuxtlas are way pretty. this morning we went to el salto de eyipantla. it´s a big waterfall that was awesome to see. they also sent a pair of sister missionaries to our branch that has been kind of a hassle. it´s the first time that i have to work with sister missonaries in my mission and it is just not the same haha. this week we got to baptize cassandra. i´ll be honest this little girl is awesome. i met her the first day i got here and fell in love with her immediately. she is really smart and has an awesome love for the gospel. she is just here for the vacations and is going back to cancun this week but she really wanted to get baptized and we couldn´t say no. i feel lucky to have been able to do it. i can´t really describe to you how much i love this littls gal but i know there have been several times in my mission that the lord has let me feel a small portion of the love he has for every one of us. and i have completely come to understand on my mission why christ loves the kids so much.
well thats about it for this week. we have to go to the registro civil cause we are trying to get a couple married so he can get baptized this week. thanks for everything. i love you all and miss you!!
