Mexico Monterrey, I mean, Mexico City South Mission
WOW - This week has been a crazy one. I am in the Mexico City South Mission until some paperwork gets worked out. I am LOVING being out in the field! I am in the area called "La Noria”. I am in a trio with Elder Erickson from Idaho and Elder Rangel from Mexico! It has been a blast just walking down the streets and meeting new people. My Spanish is so bad, but to be honest, I’m not even bugged by it at all. I can’t understand anyone but the people like helping me! I was so nervous to bear my testimony to my very first investigator. It went smoothly and I was so happy to actually talk to REAL investigators! This week I said my first baptismal invitation all in some pretty sad Spanish and luckily she said YES! I met a guy named Elder Marsh and guess what?? He is Trevor Norman’s cousin!! We made plans to all hang out after Trevor gets home from his mission. It was SWEET!!
The Mexican women try to kiss me all the time! They keep saying, “I want to marry you and I love your blue eyes!” I’m like WHOA there HERMANA - Can’t you see I’m a servant of the Lord? I just walk away after handing them a mormon.org card.
Every single day I shower with a bucket and I have to heat it up with an electric heater! Its crazy - I just get a cup and pour water on myself!
Today I have officially received the “Mexico sickness”. It’s pretty brutal. Pray for me that all goes well!
I love you all SO MUCH!!
