It has been another Amazing week down here in Mexico, let me tell you why:
I will start off by General Conference, it was awesome! I cant believe all the awesome things that are going on in the world right now! And now the missionaries are going to come even younger!! I am stoked! It is so cool. I learned so much. When we got done with conference I felt like I had run a spiritual marathon. It was good and we had a lot of investigators that came and I know that every talk they heard helped them. It was also really cool to see a lot of my converts at the stake center. I am so impressed with them they are all turning into little missionaries. Just about all of my converts brought a friend to general conference. One of my friends, Elder Andersen from South Salt Lake made me a disk of general conference yesterday so now we can listen to it for the next six months. it is going to be awesome.
I went on intercambios this week with Elder Reyes. He is new and from Guatemala and is a great missionary. He gets downtrodden a bit so I decided I would show him how to have fun on the mission. We must have found 24 new people that day and we had a blast. We where doing whatever crazy thing we could do to get the peoples attention to listen to us. I even wrote a rap in Spanish, it is pretty good I am not going to lie.
This week President called us and asked us if we would go give a blessing to Elder Cruz that has health problems and would be returning to his home the next day. I have known Elder Cruz for a long time, he had had cancer before and now it came back. He asked the President if Elder Stauffer and I could come to give him the blessing because we were his friends. It was an honor and an experience I will never forget. The spirit was really strong.
This Monday is going to be my preparation day. I don't know if I will leave or not but if I leave I will let you know. If I stay, I have some families in mind for Christmas stuff that you could send.
