well i am really happy here in revolucion 2. my hijo is called Elder
Rojas he is from obregon sonora. in the north. he is a little rough
around the edges but all around a good guy because he is sincere. he is
struggling to leave his family behind and learn how to teach the gospel
but all the new guys have to go through that. we have been going around
this first week getting to know the members and have found some good
investigatores. we share the ward with two sister misionaries. sister de
orbe and sister jaquez. the obispo is really good cause he is really
focused on the missionary work and a really organized guy. i like him a
lot and can tell that we are going to have exito in this area because of
him. i have learned that a good bishop is one of the keys to success.
one of the parts of our area is the nicest part of the mission. like big
houses, nice cars and stuff like that. president treviño lives in our
ward but doens`t attend it because he didn`t like the young womens
program for his daughter so they go to a different ward. the best part
was that the first week we brought 2 investigators to church and two
inactive families. the best part was that one of the inactive sisters
that we went to church got up and shared her testimonio in the sacrament
meeting and thanked us and called us angels. those are the moments that
motivate me to keep working. i am working really hard just like before
and i can tell we are going to have a lot of sucess here. it`s a good
ward. i`m happy to be training and teaching everything i know to elder
the pictures are of us at a dairy queen haha i am glad to be back in
veracruz because there are a few american restaurants as well. we also
went to wal mart today. wow it feels good to be in a walmart haha.
