May 23, 2016

This Week in Tapachula we had our last multi zone meeting! President George came down with the assistants and we learned a lot of new stuff! We changed a lot of new rules of the mission! Oh! And we’re going to be getting new mission pamphlets to teach with! They are really awesome! The only thing is that they’re in English and the church has not made them in Spanish yet, so we just had one pamphlet to read and to see it, so that’s pretty cool! And then later in the day we had a meeting with President George and the stake president about closing and reopening areas here in Tapachula.  I love being able to help President George.
On Friday we traveled up to Huixtla and worked with the stake president for the day.  We had a few references and we found a lot of people to teach. Unfortunately, we won’t be going down there a lot, but we’ll go down next week to help some more!
We have this family here named Montenegro. We baptized the little girl named Valeria about 2 months ago and they are amazing. We have been working with the ward council about buying a wheelchair for the mom because she had an accident a few years ago and can’t walk. So, this week we were teaching them in their house and all of a sudden a really nice member walks in with a wheel chair and says this is for you(: my dad only used it like 8 times and then passed away, so it’s still brand-new. Wow! Patricia was super exited and stared to cry! I really love this family, were really helping them out a ton (: 
We are also teaching Patrocinio, he is this old man who is just super nice.  He has been coming to church very often and wants to get baptized on June 11, so we’re working with him (:
 OH!! And on Saturday I got a call from Comalapa and it was Itzel!!! She said that she is getting baptized! Wow I was super happy! Then on Sunday Yeni and her brothers showed up to church! Wow I was super exited to see my friends from Comalapa  (: I love the mission so much!

So that’s about the rough draft of what happened here in Tapachula this week! Oh! ya, I sent of another package home on Thursday! So we’ll see when it gets home (: let me know! I love you all so much! GOD SPEED THE RIGHT! See ya soon (:
