Hello Everybody!
Hows america?? Everything is going well here in Cholula, Mexico. We've been working like crazy, and we are definitely seeing the fruits here. I am in a very awesome area, where the members are always willing to help us and there is always work. And thank you mom for the package! It arrived nice and safe, and i am happy to be sitting at the computer with contacts instead of glasses. (First time in seven months almost)
Monday- We went to the pyramid that ois here in cholula, which is super super cool. We got back realy late though, and thats why i didnt have a ton of time to write. After wards we had a great lesson with a family who was supposed to be baptized last sunday, but they ended up have some stuff happen and they couldnt. But we were able to talk with them and help them work everything out, and theyll be getting baptiused this sunday instead. They are really awesome.
Tuesday - Well on tuesday a man just came up to us on the street and asked if we could come by and teach him, which was sweet ha. Then that nightwe had another lesson with the fam thats gonna be baptised, we did a family home evening  with them. Then we had another ghreat lesson with a woman named raquel,
Wednesday - was a good day. Lots of good lessons with members, and really good food;)
Thursday - I went on interchanges with another elder so i could do a baptismal interview with him. It was my first interview and I was super super nervous, but it was such a great experience. Shes an 18 year old young girl named sandra, and she is just really prepared. I got to hear her testimony and wow, I think it might be stringer than mine. It also made me think of my own baptismal interview, only 2 years ago i was in her spot with a missionary in front of me asking questions. (If youve never heard of a baptismal interview its not like an exam or something with really personal questions. Its juat to make sure people know what they are doing and why they are doing it. Baptism is such a sacred covenant between us and our heavenly father that it shouldnt be taken lightly.
F>riday - We had a lot of lessons with less actives, and we also got to visit the man who contacted us on tuesday. Hes actuallya boy of only 18 years. Hes very interested. Hes got some interesting ideas though, and he knows a ton of random of stuff. He also lived in the chzech republic for two years. Interesting guy.
Saturday - Not a lot, but we attended the baptism of sandra and brought some investigators with us. Its always amazing to see the glow people have when they come out of that water.
Sunday - We had church, and afer we ate with a way cool family. Their 3 kids ( 2 daughters and 1 boy) have their mission calls right now. All to the united states, which is pretty rare coming from mexico. And afterwards we had a family home evening with a family and our investigator Isabel:)
Sunday - Today... We played basketball and soccer, and thats about it.

Well that was my week. This week we have two baptisms and the ward is doing a talent show which we are paricipating in! I will give you all the details next week.
