Week 23 - No changes for me

Hola,

It was a good week! We had some more lessons than those of past weeks. Now we just have to get our investigators to church!

I am no longer sick. I feel good. All is well here in Mexico!

We had a ward talent show. It sufficeth me to say that you should always check the songs that you play even if it is all in english and no one will understand it. Check it. haha.

We have a new investigator named Francisco. He has been to church twice and he says he wants to be baptized! I am really excited for him. He is 13 years old. 

I am happy. We didn't have changes, so I am still here in the offices in Villas with Elder Jimenez.

Hope you all have a great week! Love you all!
Elder Rasmussen

Week 22 - Five Months!

Every P-day has been super awesome. We got back from bowling and buffalo wild wings. We celebrated for Hna Caamal, from Yucatan, Mexico, who is finishing her mission next monday. She is really cool. She is mayan. We always joke that she is going to get married in two weeks.

Also, Elder Frederickson from Orem is going to have changes. He is the comp of Elder May from Providence, Utah. Freddy has been here in the offices for the 5 changes and been training May. They are really cool guys. 

Sometimes I don't even feel like I am in Mexico. But there are definitely other times when there is no way I can forget haha. But I love it here. It is different, but it definitely has its good parts.

All is well here in Mexico. I am happy, and my spanish feels good. Saturday I felt really sick, but I feel better now. 

Hope you all have a great week!
Love you all,
Grant

Week 21 - Food Poisoning

I was a little sick from food poisoning, but feel better now. We had interviews and President Williamson is awesome! He really knows how to help us. 

We are doing good, and working hard. My spanish feels really good, even though I can still improve a lot. I at least can understand the majority of what people say.

I am doing well here in Villas. All is good. I don't have anymore time, but I can send photos later.

We got back from playing soccer as a zone. We beat the El Sol zone.

Love you all,
Elder Grant Rasmussen

Week 20 - Theme Parks and Trabajo

Hola,

This week was good, pretty solid. We worked hard and we had some success. We'll see what happens with Erick and Jonathan. Two investigators who are progressing. Oh yeah, and I had food poisoning yesterday. It was rough, but my prayers were answered. I feel lots better today.

Today, we got permission as a zone to go to Parque Bicentenario, a theme park. It cost about 2 dollars to enter haha, and it was super cool. It was just a ghetto Mexican version of Lagoon, with a train ride to see animals in cages too. haha. But it was awesome!

I am very happy to be here and I am grateful for this opportunity to learn. Mexico is good. All is good here in the Villas ward and I am happy. The church is true. 

Love you all,
Grant
