#65: Two Baptisms in My Ward But Not My Area

How's it going?  I hope all is well!
This week has been good and lots of things have happened. There were two baptisms from my ward, but not in my area.  They were really good.  There was lots of support from the members! :)

To answer your questions:
We are going to watch general conference in the church building here in Cuauhtemoc.  Usually all the Gringos go to a separate room to watch it in English, which I like because I like hearing the voice of the prophets and not just an interpreter. hahaha

The photos are of me with a duck.  It belongs to less active family. They have like 20 rooster too that they use to fight!  It's like dog fighting here but with chickens...crazy, huh? The others are of an ice cream waffle bowl maker and ice cream.  There's a restaurant that sells them for 50 pesos, like $2.30 in the US....super delicious!

I can't believe it's almost October already!  Time flies by super fast!  It's starting to get cold here again and that means that the end of the year in nearing...meaning Christmas and all that good stuff.  I can't believe that May to December is 7 months!  That's a long break without seeing the family!

The work here is going mas o menos still.  Our investigators don't come to church and that's hard, we are teaching like 5 people and can't find new people to teach.  We are working about 60% with part-member families and 40% investigators.

Love you much!
Your son,
Elder Fowler

This week's scripture is:
Mosiah 2:36-37

36 And now, I say unto you, my brethren, that after ye have known and have been taught all these things, if ye should transgress and go contrary to that which has been spoken, that ye do withdraw yourselves from the Spirit of the Lord, that it may have no place in you to guide you in wisdom’s paths that ye may be blessed, prospered, and preserved—
 37 I say unto you, that the man that doeth this, the same cometh out in open rebellion against God; therefore he listeth to obey the evil spirit, and becometh an enemy to all righteousness; therefore, the Lord has no place in him, for he dwelleth not in unholy temples.
