Home cookin'

Dear Family!

Well it was another really good week here in the mission. Wow did it go by super fast! Well I officially hit the 18 month mark. It was pretty wild to think of that but it is already here! It has been a good 18 months and I am really eager to work hard for what I've got left!

One cool thing that we did this week was that we had the zone conference. We talked a lot about repentance and I really liked what we talked about. I feel that should be our biggest message to the world, that we are all in a fallen state and have the need to repent and return to our Lord. All of our message is centered on Jesus Christ and that through Him we can become clean of sin. The rest of our message is to let us know by what means and the need we all have to do it.  As we have been studying lately I have seen how great the blessings are for those that repent and come unto Christ.

Today was a really good P day. We all got together here in Apatzingan and we played futbol for a while. Once we couldn't take the heat anymore we headed into the kitchen to make some traditional food from our homes. Of course I had to make mashed potatoes! I didn't really have anything to mash them with but everyone said that they turned out really good. They just needed a bit of salt but I feel it was pretty good for my first time making them alone! ;)

We found a couple new investigators this week. They are the son and daughter in law of our convert. The wife said that the missionaries had already gone to teach her family also (who happens to live just a couple houses away) so hopefully that means we will have even more people to teach! She also has some family members in Utah so that will make things even greater! 

Well I hope you all have a great week! It sounds like you are all working extremely hard but I know that you are seeing the blessings for all that you do! Love you all!
