Wow! What an amazing week! My companion is Elder Espinosa and he is from Merida Yucatan! My last two comps have been from Merida. He is a great guy and loves to work! This area is HUGE! I can't believe it. I think I could stay here for the rest of my mission and still have a place where I haven't been. I'm nervous but we will see how it goes. We found alot of people. A ton of people that have families that are members but kids that aren't so we have a ton of work to help these teens get baptized and activate the family.
My first week as DL - it was pretty stressful. I have to train, call almost every night and give tips. My district is super cool and I'm not worried about them at all. There is a new Elder named Elder White (I call him White goodman) haha- he is from South Jordan and knows Elder Andriese very well AND Zach Hulse! So thats cool! We talk alot and I help him with his first week out! He is progressing so well!
What a great time you had Dad! It looked like you had awesome weather and great fishing! There is no question you're the best fly fisherman that a lot of people are asking for YOUR flies! You should've told them that it was the power of the priesthood and not the fly! haha I can't wait to go and make my wrist sore from catching fish pigs!
Well... yesterday was 9/11! God Bless America! I miss my land and my liberty! We take things so easily for granted and when we are gone we look back and think of all the blessings that we had that we hadn't paid much attention to.
As a zone we played soccer and a Nerf war! It gets gnarly sometimes!
Ahh crap! Freakin Cowboys! Who did they play against!? And its always a good feeling and great to hear that BYU lost!
Thank you for everything! I can't believe we're almost halfway through September! Time is flying! I ask for your prayers to help me through this year to keep me positive.
