hello family. well i am now officially in the mexico merida misión. which means i was transfered from Valladolid to a Little town outside of Merida called Caucel. It’s  pretty good. I’m leader de distrito and I’m kinda nervous for that because  i  have never had a leadership position before besides being a trainer. but they say district leader is one of the hardest so I’m readay! haha if there is one thing I’ve learned it’s that the Lord helps us fulfill our callings. the new house is pretty good. It’s clean and  my new comp is named Elder Juarez. he is from Houston Texas and is pretty good. it was a pretty hard leaving Valladolid especially for the people and my comp because we got pretty attached but i guess that’s just how the misión goes. it was really hard to say goodbye to the converts but         we said that we would see each other in a year when they get sealed in the temple. i am so glad that we have eternal families. it is so important. Well its been pretty crazy up until now but I’m going to try and write something interesting. It’s just that so much happens and you have so much going through your mind when you get transferred in when you get transferred. but oh  well. Lets see what could i say...well idk haha I’m loving the work and I’m excited to have a new fresh start in a new  área with a new comp and Ward.

adiós i love you guys

mother thats true what you said about all the stuff with moving and everything. it defiantly makes saying goodbye easier when you know it’s never forever is you live the gospel.

Michelle I’ll   look for a bag like that is should be able to find one. and  nothing out of the normal except in my old house for like 2 weeks a bird was trying to get into our house by running into the window haha it was prettyfunny because it was really bugging my comp and he got really mad haha

Thanks for the message about judging and all that. It’s very true what you are saying.  I have been Reading Jesus the Christ and I remember how you said that the way they read it on the cds is pretty cool. when i get home I’ll listen to them haha but I really like the picture you sent. I’m really glad you helped me to have such a strong carácter.  You did it by pushing me and giving me a good example. thanks!!! I’m glad you are able to go on more motorcyle rides. its pretty fun to hear the stories.  Are you going to go fishing this summer well adios
