Week 63 in Mexico, Week 3 Del Valle

Hi everyone!!  This week was pretty good.  I got over the infection that I had, and now everything is all better.  We have been working hard, and today, we had a zone activity, and I´m pretty sure I´m burnt a little.  It was way fun, but now my companion and I are way tired.  We are definitely going to sleep good tonight.  We have been trying to get the hang of the area, its pretty big so we have to do a lot of travelling.  Usually we end up talking a couple of buses daily.  The members here are really nice, actually just the other day some members invited us to eat with them.  They bought my companion a plate of fruit with sweetened condensed milk and m&ms on top, and they bought me french fries with hot dogs.  The hot dogs were cut in half, and then they cut it length wise, but not all the way.  After that they fried it all, and the hot dogs finished looking like little squids, which was cool.  This past week we also had the zone meeting, and there was a rule change, we can now go to the temple as a district 1 time every 2 transfers.  They will assign us a day to go, but we are way excited, especially since only the missionaries in Guadalajara will be able to go.  We now also have a copy of Meet the Mormons as a zone, and we are going to have the opportunity to "borrow" it for a day or two, which should be good.  We are already planning a family home evening or something, which should be good.  Also we got to meet with Sergio, the person that showed up at the chapel by himself.  He seems like a great person, he went to church again yesterday, and he liked it a lot.  He likes to read the Book of Mormon which is great.  We also got to work with some of the ward missionaries.  We told everyone that we will need lots of help because we are both new.  Actually Saturday, we are going to have a car wash, so that people can go to the church, and while they are waiting for there car to be cleaned, we are going to give them tours of the chapel, and show videos and stuff.  Another cool thing is they are going to broadcast the Mexico City temple re-dedication
to a church in our stake, and we are going to be able to go, which is going to be quite exciting.  Anyway, that's about it for this week, Have a great week everyone.
