hola well yesterday after baptizing our neighbor, i got a call from the zone leaders and i got told that i will be leaving caucel and i am going to go to a place called chitzin itza. It’s not the ruin it’s just called that. and i spelled it wrong i think. but i was really sad-suprised because i really liked my kid elder peterson. and i thought i would end the training with him but it is ok. we left a lot of good work for him. now i will be a }zone leader. i am excited for that. it sounds like everything is going good there. we had some problems with the transfers and rain and all that so i don’t have a lot of time but i{ll send some pics. i am going to send them in lower quality so i can send them faster. well i love you guys a lot adios

Try and do what Jesus did. he taught parables and applied them to the ways the people lived, like seed sowers, travelers, etc. and i am glad that things are going well. keep working hard on the missionary work it is the most important that we can do especially for our own family. you should read alma 26 and there is a great scripture there that talks about how to share the gospel efficiently it is in verse 22.  it has turned into one of my favorites. i was just called to be zone leader so i got moved out of caucel and into another part of merida. my comp is going to go home this change so he’s really experienced. he’s another american called elder taylor.  things will be going pretty good. i am loving the work and i love you a lot adios
