July 29th-August 5th, 2013

hey guys,

thanks for the updates. thats pretty funny and sad that that dog died on you tara. i can´t believe ashley is almost going off to school! time flies. 

well the big news is that i´m being changed to los tuxtlas, area primero de mayo. my companion will be elder bahr. he is from my generation. i was thinking that i might go to the offices  because three assistents (there are four in this mission) are gong home this week, but it turns out that i´ll be going to the tuxtlas. dad, i only made the comment about me training  last week cause usually for the last part of the mission, president sometimes lets the mission leaders train again. i´m excited. changes are always good. i´m a little nervous and sad to be leaving here but it´ll be good. the bad part is that i´ll still be zl. i´m a little tired of it but i´m gonna keep working hard. the tuxtlas is the only part of the mission that is not a stake, it´s a district. and it´s really pretty with lots of vegetation and witchcraft. the people are a little superstitious down there. it´s the most southern zone of the mission. i´ll be leaving tomorrow.
this week we worked really hard and only could bring one investigator to church. i feel a little bit bad cause i wont be leaving too many upcoming baptisms to the elderes that are going to be arriving here but they´ll have a lot of work to do. we are leaving them five or six good investigatores that have dates for these upcoming weeks. last night we went to say goodbye to Rosa, Rosenda and their family. they are sad to see us go but through tears thanked us a lot for our work with them. it made me feel really good. i know that the lord always has a plan and sends us to certain places for certain reseans. yesterday we tried to help the ward out in their ward council meeting and it was actually really good. they were able to make assignments to visit the investigators and converts. now we´ll just see if they do it this week. we also planned an activity this week for the 17th of agosto but now i won´t be here for it haha. 

dad it sounds like your mission was different. here a zone class (that we do two times every transfer) is diferent than a zone conference( that the mission president does once every three months) and when we do the zone classes both me and my companion give a training to the zone and sometimes we assign the district leaders to give a training as well. does that explain it better?
mom, i didn´t get your letter this week?? i´m sure it´s cause the computer problems. it´s ok.
well i love you guys a lot. and the photos are of my companion at the doctors cause he got sick haha. and of jorge when he gave my companion a gansito (it´s like a twinkie but better) on his birthday cause he completed años this week. and of my and my three companions that are going home this week.
