#13: Rainy Days While on Exchanges

Today is transfers and Elder Vergara and I are staying in Anahuac for the upcoming transfer cycle.  Elder Vergara returns home on November 11th.  I really enjoy our area because this past week I went on exchanges (when missionary companionships trade companions for a short period of time) with the district leader in Cuauhtemoc and I felt completely out of place! We were on exchanges from Wednesday afternoon to Friday evening!  I missed my "own" bed in Anahuac.  Anahuac is like my home now! My companion and I are really getting along.  There isn't too much of a language barrier anymore so that is nice! Oh, and our boiler is finally working again and we have Hot Water!

I'm talking a lot more in lessons and honestly I have no idea what I'm about to say, but the Lord fills my mouth with the words I need to touch the hearts of those we teach.  We had another baptism yesterday.  She is a 9 year old girl who's parents have been less active so we've been trying to reactivate them.

Here is Mexico, they don't fast the week before General Conference, but my companion and I did anyway.  I believe I will be able to watch General Conference in English with the other gringos, if not, then in Spanish and then next month I can read the talks in the Ensign.  I did hear about Richard G. Scott...crazy to think that three General Authorities have passed this year.

I Love you and constantly pray for you all,
Elder Fowler

Mucha Mucha lluvia (lots and lots of rain)

Out on exchanges with a District Leader
(Love this picture-He doesn't seem to mind the rain)

He wanted to send us this picture because he says there are
everywhere-this was like his dad's first car back in the 80's.

Check out this car....never seen one of these before.
