To answer your questions: I DID get my winter package this last Tuesday! I am super grateful for all the love that you guys give me! It sure means a lot! This last week we were able to move into our house here in Guerrero and it's really nice! I feel like I'm back in the States when I walk in. I have pictures because I know that you would want to see where I live! haha We do have a washing machine, but not a dryer. I don't think the mission has dryers for anyone....maybe the sisters, haha
As for my companion, sometimes he doesn't want to wake up until 7:40! I've tried talking to him about the importance of exact obedience in all things. It's hard because I grew up in a house where we were always on time to everything...EVERYTHING!!! I hate being late to things...some mornings I want to rip the sheets off from him!!!
The branch here is really small. Only about 20 people attend each week. We meet in a Prayer House, it's not even a chapel! I really love the members and all that they do for the missionaries in their area :)
I love the scripture from this past week (2 Nephi 4:34) We can always rely on the Lord through everything. He is the one person that will be there through it all. It kinda reminds me of a song that I have on my flash drive. This week, I chose the scripture:
In the CCM, I read this scripture and felt that it applies to me during my mission. It explains so well how I need to act and behave during my mission. Let me know your thoughts as well :)
(I had told him that our little 8 year old friend, Cameron Kaesche, who used to live in our cul-de-sac, will be getting baptized this Saturday) I'm so excited for Cameron!!! Can you tell him that I still have the paper he gave me in my suit jacket, the one that says, "Dear Preston, Sorry that Rudy (our dog) died" I look at it each Sunday during the Sacrament. Also, tell him that I love his decision to be baptized!! He's gonna make one great missionary! ;)
They don't celebrate Thanksgiving here of course, but November 20th is a holiday here for Mexico's Revolution. We had a baptism this week. I will tell you more about it next week, but there is a picture. Her family is a part member family and we found them using the Teaching Records. She has had all the lessons and was able to be baptized.
I love you! Thanks for being my biggest fan.
