Wow! It has been a very interesting
week! First of all, tell Grams and the Hales thank you for their letters! As you
figured out, you are suppose to use dearelder.com
to send me letters. That helps the servers out here. I get it the same day you
send it too.
The food here is so good! I can see why you can gain weight! One time we
had salmon! Oh, that was good! I have really learned a lot! On Friday, we
started to teach an investigator. Easy, right? Not when he only speaks Spanish

also fly by! I can't believe that it has been a week already!!! My Spanish is
getting better. I am so grateful for the opportunity to serve my Lord.
We have devotionals every Sunday and Tuesday! It is so amazing! I also

jammed, and received a few pains from playing basketball and volleyball.
I don't have my visa yet. Mexico is
