September 6, 2016 - Week 63


Wow, what a week! I'm super tired and a little bit exhausted from the heat, but today we´ve been able to rest a bit, and get ready for another week. So it´s already Labor day huh? Did you guys make it up to Midway at all for Swiss days, or when will the next Midway trip be? It feels a little weird to be missing all of these patriotic holidays haha. The Mexican independence day is actually coming up in a week or so, so that will have to suffice for the next few months lol.

So how is the whole 5k planning going? That sounds like something that's right up your alley. I'm sure your keen planning skills are helping you get everything organized, I'm sure it has a lot of moving parts to it, but it will also turn out great. What else do you have going on in school? Do you feel like a vet this time around in the HS level classes? It is funny how a little bit of time really can help us feel a lot better in a new task. I have no doubt that you're a popular and effective teacher there at Oasis.

This week, it was really nice to have the opportunity to fast, knowing that I was one of many joining in for uncle Matt. Wow, they have a tonnnn going on, but the Lord will bless them tremendously during this time, I have no doubt! 

So this week was really busy, and tiring, and hot, but it ended up having good results. we are working with a lady named Rosario, and her granddaughter. They are neighbors of a member, and they just started showing up to church. They have their fair share of difficulties, but I guess everyone does, right? We are also working with some of the family members of the lady who just got baptized last week. We have also been working with some of the less active members in the ward. There was actually this day a few weeks ago, when I was still with Elder Chichia, it was raining sooooo hard, and this family called us into their house. They then told us that they were members and just hadn't gone to church for a long time. But for the 3 weeks since then, they've come to church every week, with their whole family. 

Today we all got together as a zone here in Navojoa and played volleyball and ate some pizza. There's been a lot of changes in the zone, so it was fun to get a lot of people together and get to know each other better. This week we are going to have a zone conference, but there will be an Area 70, the stake president, and the mission president there, so we´re really excited to hear from such spiritual giants, but a little nervous as well to be honest haha. 

Well, I hope you guys have a killer Labor Day, enjoy the moments as a family and know that you're all in my thoughts and prayers. I love you and miss you all.
