Week 67 in Mexico, Week 7 in Del Valle
Hi everyone, so this week has been pretty good. We have had lots of work, and actually lots of stuff happened this week. First of all we had a zone meeting Friday, right after the zone meeting we got to go to the temple to help the ward do baptisms for the dead. It was a really good experience and it was also the first time for my companion and I. After that we had general conference. I loved all of the sessions, it was cool to get to see who the new apostles are. I also really liked all of the talks. During the week, we had another lesson with Sergio, it turns out that he has lots of weird ideas. He thinks that Satan doesn`t exist, that we didn`t exist before we were born and a bunch of other stuff, he did go to 2 sessions of general conference Saturday, but Sunday, he didn`t go to any session. The good news is that Israel went to general conference, and he liked it a lot. It turns out he bought a triple combination that he saw in some street market, and already read Abraham, he said he liked it. Also, he has already gotten to the book of Alma in the Book of Mormon. He is flying through it, and he likes it a lot. He is definitely going to get baptized. Besides that, I`ve been showing the area to my new companion. He is already getting the hang of missionary life. So far so good. I`ve been telling everyone that he has more than 20 baptisms, and 1 week in the mission. Then, after they react, I tell them that we did baptisms for the dead. Today, we had a zone activity, and we went to play soccer, and basketball and stuff. It was fun, but now I`m way tired. Oh, another thing, the sister missionaries had to go again, the new sister also got sick. So the whole ward is all ours. Its a lot of work, and I`m not sure how we`re going to do it, but it should be alright. If it all works out, one of the investigators that the sisters had, should get baptized here soon in like 2 or 3 weeks, which is good, anyway, there are all sorts of stuff going on here.
