November 3, 2014- in Salina Cruz with Elder Rodriguez

We got permission for Mario to take us to see the sun rise last P-day in Morro.
It was pretty cool.
It’s one of the only places you can see the sun rise over the Pacific Ocean.

Things have been going pretty good for us here in Salina Cruz 2. The área is really getting going and we’re pretty much over the humps that come with opening a new área. We got a pretty solid group of investigatores with Andrea and Diego leading the pack. They are a young couple that has a little baby and it’s awesome to teach them. We talked to Diego for about an hour last night about the temple. He’s an architect in training and he just lives them. Of course we talked about the more important aspects of the temple also and he was just as excited.

Ema, the lady who got baptized is doing great also. Ema is a lady we found when we were  walking around lost here our first week. She had talked with missionaries before but had never really progressed. We set a cita with her and went back, taught here about the book of Mormon, got an answer that night and was super excited to get baptized. She tells everyone that were her grandkids. She’s trucking thru the book of Mormon and doing family history and getting ready to go to the temple to do baptisms.

Jose Manuel is awesome too, his WHOLE family has reactivated. We’ve been working a ton with them.

This week it’s also been super windy, like so windy sometimes you can’t walk it’s really crazy but also cool. It makes that sun not seem so hot. This week we had a noche de hogar  for the whole Ward- and us and the other two missionaries made the plan of salvacuuion in the chapel and it turned out awesome. A ton of people showed up and it was a good way to spend Halloween. For day of the dead, all I got to say is tamales tamales and more tamales. It was great haha. but ya besides that, this is week 6, we’re probably gonna both be here another change together, but it just shows that time is flying by!

 love you guys have a good week!

This is where we live. Salina Cruz is built around the petroleum place and every one Works there. I’ll probably leave here with cáncer or green skin or something
