How’s it going? I hope all is well over there in little ole Fallon. Here everything is good . I can’t believe that Jason only won $40.00 for second place that stinks!!! Anyway I am good. It has been a hard week here, my slowest week yet, I think. In fact my only slow week! We have been baptizing every week down here and I realize after not having a baptism this week how hard it would be to be in England or Rome or anywhere else. The people here really are great and love the gospel.
We have changes coming up this weekend and I think I will be leaving. I am pretty sure that I will be going to Villahermosa or down south somewhere I think and hope as well. Now 6 months into the mission with the language down and I pretty much know how the mission works and what I need to do. I am ready to be in a leadership position and start in a different area with new challenges and work my butt off.
There was a pretty big earthquake this week. It was 6.7 and I definitely felt it haha. It was in the morning again and in the night I couldn’t sleep because I thought I could feel an earthquake coming again. It was cool to feel, great experience!!
I can’t believe that I have been out 6 months. It feels like it has gone so fast, already!!! I have 3 more of these and I am done…that’s a scary thought. I do not want to go home haha! Sorry to say but now I know how all the missionaries feel. I was thinking about it the other day and it really upset me thinking how one day I have to go back….But I still have time so I won’t worry to much about that. This 6 months has been the best 6 months of my life so far.
I bought me camera. Thanks I love you guys!! Write me lots next week and give me lots to read from everyone!!!! Tell Kevin congrates and that I received his letter. It’s funny he will speaking gringo Spanish when he is done haha!!!
Well, all is good. I hope the family is all good. I am sad I won’t be there for St. George but 2 more years and I will be ready to go party it up!!!!
I love you all!!
