Hello family. Sorry this is coming a little late.  Yesterday we didn’t have much time to write because we had to go with president to a district conference in Ticul.  It went pretty good and we had fun participating in the conference. Well, starting with what happened the last week.  Starting on Sunday.

We went to a stake conference with President Garcia and it was in Estaca Brisas.  Which is where one of my areas Chichen Itza is.  Well it turned out that two of my converts from that area were going to receive el sacerdocio de melquisedec. I had the great opportunity to give them the priesthood.  I felt a great honor and I am very grateful for the restoration of the priesthood.  It is the power of God and we are the only church that has been authorized from God to act in is name.  I don’t say it with pride.  I say it with solemnity and with the desire to share the message with everyone so they too can enjoy the blessings of the priesthood. 
Later on that day, we traveled down to campeche so we could be ready for the zone conference on Monday morning. We slept in the hotel again and then in the morning the zone conference went well.
As we were going home, we had to drop some missionaries off at a pueblo called peto, as we were driving president hit some giant speed bumps because here in Mexico, they like to put speed bumps in the middle of the road on freeways just for fun haahahha well we continued driving for like 20 minutes and then the car stopped going because of the friction. Well let’s just say we were stranded literally in the middle of the jungle with no signal. haaha we ending up pushing the car a while and then it got better and the hna Garcia and President went to the closet pueblo because it would have been too much for the suspension if we would have gone too.  Well I will send you some videos about that but it was a pretty good week.

Also I broke a record for most tacos de cabaza eaten. I ate 24.  I would have eaten more but it was late and we needed to be home because we needed to travel to ticul again in the morning.  Well I love you guys and I just want you to know that I love you lots. adios}
