Week 48 - Marriage and Baptism

Hello all!

We finally got Jessica and Luis Miguel married. Then a few days later, Jessica got baptized. It was a very nice service. 

All is going well here in Satelite. We have found some new people. A lot of people here have problems with alcohol and drogas. It is very sad. Don't do drugs! 

I am really loving it here in Mexico! The people are awesome. They have such big hearts. 

Hope you all have a great week!

Week 47 - Good week, nothing new though


This was a great week! We worked super hard, and we are both very tired. 

We found quite a few really cool people this week. Some christians. There are practically three religions here: Catholicism, Christianity, and Jehovah's Witness. Christianity is a religion here, it is weird. People say, if we aren't catholics, or cristianos, or testigos, we aren't anything.

We are in the process of getting Jessica and Luis Miguel married. We've had to practically do all the paper work. Now I know how to do it all. If anyone needs help getting married in Mexico, I'll be your guide. It's confusing. 

All is well here in Satelite. It's been a great week. Hope you all have a great week!

Week 46 - Same old same old in Satelite


This week was a good one. We had a lot of good lessons, but we'll see how well these people progress. I think that one of the greatest blessings I have received from serving as a missionary is getting to know so many great people. I have learned a lot from all of them. From some, I have learned what I should not do. haha But always people are interesting.

It's been pretty rainy here in QuerĂ©taro. We get rained on quite a bit, not too bad, but I think I've gotten used to it by now. I prefer the rain to the sun though. 

All is well. Not much new. We have changes this next monday. Who knows what'll happen. You'll all just have to stay in suspense for another week.

Thanks for all the support. Hope you all have a great week!
