November 25, 2013- Morro de Mazatan


Well I don’t got to write this week. I really didn’t do much, I’ve been sick- I had typhoid again this week and right now I’m "intoxicated" (I’m not really sure what that means) but I’m fine, just really bored. umm and Mario just got his package, he says thanks, he’s acting like a 4 year
old. haha
I’m at Mario’s house- the only place in Morro with internet.  I really didn’t do much this week, I don’t know what to tell you.
ya that’s ridiculous about the game change, and I’ve been thinking about Friday all weekend- tell them good luck
yes, I’m taking medicines and yes Hermana Leyva knows I have typhoid and I have 4 doctors saying 4 different things, that’s what I’m trying to figure out today, it looks like I might get changed out of Morro to the city this week.
I went to church. We didn’t have a lot investigators there but German did go so he’s gonna be getting baptized this week. We might do it in a river.
Typhoids everywhere! It’s not just gringos who get typhoid- no everyone gets it, just especially me. It’s actually my third time having it.
The doctors say that I have typhoid, but got intoxicated by fish and that’s why my
skin is different colors and I know being intoxicated is like being drunk -that’s what I thought when the nurse told me. I told her I don’t drink.
thanks for the pics, I need to go. Tell Carson good luck and send an email about the game to Morro afterwards. Don’t worry about my health I’m fine, just bored. I’ll have more to write next week love ya guys

November 19, 2013- Morro de Mazatan


Well this week Jesus got baptized! Saturday afternoon we all crammed into a truck and headed off to Salina Cruz for the baptism. It was pretty cool that his dad was able to baptize him because he was baptized the same day one year earlier. So it was cool that we were able to help his dad prepare also to get the priesthood. The only person that’s left to be baptized in their family is their mom. She’s a big time Jehovah Witness, so it’ll be a little work. So that’s the good news for the week. The bad news is almost none of our investigators went to church Sunday (including German) so well have to move his baptism back a week. Everyone’s progressing really well it’s just a lot slower with this whole five week rule. Other than that I’m not sure what else to say for today. I’m in Salina so I’ll send pics. Have a good week love you guys!!!

November 11, 2013- Morro de Mazatan


We’re gonna have a baptisms this Week! Chuy (Jesus) made it to the

chapel this week so we are all good to go for this Saturday. From here

on out we are gonna start having a lot more. We had six more

Investigators in the church this week, and Morro is starting to look

like a gold mine. it’s a Little sad that I’ll most likely be here for

the beginning of the wave here but it’s all good. Not a ton of new news

this week, everyone’s progressing real well and without this 5 week

rule we’d probably have about 7 baptisms this week, but it’s all good,

they’ll be that much stronger after their baptism. Outside of the misiĆ³n

work this week I ate more grasshoppers, got stung by a scorpion(I have

no idea how I’ve been here 4 months and only been stung once) gained

about 5 more pounds due to mole and tlayudas, lived for three days

without electricity and beat Mario in a dead arm competition. Sorry

there’s not a lot of news this week, it’s been a good week though.

Tomorrow we have a zone conference and I got asked to talk about how

we get people to go to church . ya that’s about all for the week, hope

everyone’s doing good. Thanks for all your dearelders and emails and

stuff. It’s always good to get mail:)

November 4, 2013- Morro de Mazatan


This week went really well, easily the best week I’ve had so far, and maybe the best I will ever have! right now we have 7 baptismal dates set(the most in the mission), and we had 6 of those people come to church which is even more of a miracle. we're working way hard here and we are definitely seeing the results. So ya in the next couple of weeks the baptisms are gonna get started again here in Morro. I’m trying to get special permission to baptize in the ocean here because the branch isn’t gonna have enough money to travel to Salina Cruz every weekend so I hope that Works out. the names of the dates are chuy,gema,jesus,gabriel,eder,abraham and German. chuy(jesus) will be the first on the 16 of November. The other good news is we have a bunch of references to contact because of the Halloween activity we

did. we cooked donuts and ate Candy and I taught them how to carve pumpkins.it was way fun I’ll send pictures the next time I get a chance. everything’s going great with my comp, he’s not afraid to talk and is really outgoing. he’s only been a member for a couple years and is the only member in his family so he’s still learning a lot(yesterday I had to teach him the Trinity are three separate people haha) but his testimony is awesome and that’s all that really matters. It looks like

I’m only gonna have 5 more weeks left here in Morro so I’m gonna try and make the most of them. It feels good when things work out like they should :) have a good week!
