I love to see that kind of change in people. It is the favorite part of my mission. Without a doubt!!!

Joe and other missionaries in his district and zone
It has been another great week in Mexico, or as you could say, mexi-cold.  I know it is really not that cold, but the slight drop in temperature has been killing me.  Especially because we have been bathing in cold water every morning since our water heater blew up.  
HAPPY BIRTHDAY JANAYE!!! I am super excited for you and I sent you a letter. 
 It has been a pretty crazy week because it is the last week of Elder Stauffer.  I didn't let him be frito and he did really well enduring to the end.  He just wanted to eat all the Mexican food he could because its just not the same in the states.  So we went out to eat almost every night.  It is a miracle that we didn't get sick.
This week I will be in a trio with Elder Anderson (he started the mission with me and he is from south Salt Lake) and Elder Diaz who is from Guatemala.  We will be working our two areas and I have a feeling that it is going to be a wild week ha ha.  So we will be celebrating Thanksgiving together.  Its not celebrated here but we are going to see what we can do to celebrate it.
We saw a ton of miracles this week.  This week a 93 year old man contacted us.  His name is Fermin and he is progressing very well.  He is very active for such an old man.  He plays tennis every day.  Without a doubt he is the oldest person I have taught in my mission.  I don't know if I had told you about Cristina or not, but she is one of our investigators that we have had for a while.  She just wasn't progressing really well and we were praying for her and trying to figure out what we should teach her and we felt like we should show her a conference talk.  We did that last week and since that day she has changed 180 degrees.  She always reads in the bible and the book of mormon and is attending the church every week.  We still have a few more things to teach her but I am sure she will be baptized soon.  I love to see that kind of change in people.  It is the favorite part of my mission. Without a doubt!!!  It was super cool.
Hey Dave, keep your shoes on at school! ha ha.  
Kate,  I believe I left a list in my box about 100 ways to be a member missionary that President Baker gave us.  Could you check if its there in my books, I believe its in mormon doctrine or one of those church books.  If you could retype that and pass it to me, that would be great, and if you could translate it into Spanish it would be even better!
I love you all and am glad that you all had a good week.
Con Muchísimo Amor,
Elder Joe Fuell
