First Week In The Field!

Hey everybody! It’s going great down here! It’s always super hot and I’m sweaty a lot. San Luis is right on the border and most people here just walk down to Mexico on the weekends, which makes missionary work just a bit hard. We live about half a mile from the border though, which is awesome!


The ward here is super small, only about 60 people. My trainer is great and is really good at helping me with my goals! On my first night I invited a family we met on the street to be baptized and we gave them a book of Mormon! That was awesome! And the same thing happened the second night too!

My companion is also a greenie in the mission. He’s only been out for three months and he’s training me! So we both have a lot to learn. He’s also super in tune with the spirit. We teach a lot of great lessons because of how well he let’s he spirit work through him (he says the same thing about me though, and I hope he’s right :P)

We had a busy Pday today – we had a district wide activity of gatorball, which is basically like a mixture of soccer and basketball. It’s really fun! One of the elders in my area gave me the nickname “Josito Smith” because I’m from Palmyra area and he says I look a little but like Joseph Smith!

One of our investigators made us some amazing food last week. It was his birthday and he invited us over and made this food called Carne Salda. It was meat he grilled on a charcoal grill that we put with salsa, guacamole, and wrapped in tortillas. It was so good!

I think that’s it. I miss you all and love you all so much!
