Well this week was good.  We did lots of things. 
Well, we have Rodrigo who is going to be baptized 
on Tuesday, and Sharon and Adrian on the 31st.  
Today we have a zone activity, and we´re going to 
play volleyball with water balloons! So that's exciting.  
Also we decided to star up our English class again in 
the church on Saturday mornings. It was really fun, we 
taught how to pray in English, and then how to introduce 
yourself, and we practiced some verbs.  Then we played
this game where you have a sticky note on your head
with an animal in English, and you have to ask questions
to guess what animal you was hilarious.  
Well, I'm looking forward to this week because Rodrigo is 
finally getting baptized!!

Have a great week!

I will attach some pictures of the view from our roof of our area :)

Well, things are going good.  Yes, I'm enjoying it.  Sometimes it's weird to think that I'm in Mexico, and I just spend all  day 24/7 with one person walking around talking to strangers in a different language.  haha but I'm having fun and learning a lot.  We have three baptisms  planned for this month that are pretty set and sure.  Rodrigo, for next week Tuesday, Sharon for the 24th...she is 17 and has all of the lessons from elders who live where her Dad lives, but she actually lives here in our area with her Grandma, and she wants to be baptized, So she came to church with us yesterday and needs to have three attendances in our ward to be baptized here.  And Adrian...he is 13 and his Mom is less active, the missionaries taught and baptized his family 7 years ago, but he was too young to, but he is really good, it's sad because their family has a lot of problems and he can't read either...we are going to try and help him learn, and  help reactivate their family.  

Love you too!

Wellllll, this week was very good.  My new companion and I are working well together.  We had a lot of lessons this week, Hermana Eyre is very good at talking to everyone.  Which is great, for me its still a bit uncomfortable starting off...but It always works out good.  So we have a few new people and families to teach.  We also helped a family move, so we got to wear was weird! They are a less active family and are going through a lot of hard things.  We are working to reactivate them...and they have a son who is 13 named Adrian, and we are going to try and get him baptized within the next couple weeks.  We went to the visitors center on Saturday with him and Rodrigo, and the other Rodrigo, and Antonio (who is Claudia's little brother) (I'll attach the pic) It was really fun and we all felt the spirit.  Rodrigo is going to get baptized in a week we think.  Today, Hermana Marcela made us crepes with cream cheese and blackberry jam and lechera (basically sweetened condensed milk) and they were heavenly.  Well that was my week in a nutshell :) have a great week!
Love Hermana Young
