He made tortillas by hand and bought a cougar paw. He's excited to take the cougar paw to BYU.


Letter from 5/25/2015

This week we had district conference! Like stake conference but since we´re in a district it´s just called differently with less people. Mission President Cordova came and he taught about what things Los Tuxtlas need to do to become a stake. He talked about 3 things; The sabbath day, tithing, and fast offerings. If the people here take seriously these commandments, they´ll see this place grow. Right now, in the district there are 5,000 members and 800 actives. Just an interesting challenge to take.

This week we have been working with an investigator named Maria del Rosario and she´s just the most fantastic person that we´ve found. She has a lot of faith in God and that keeping the Commandments is how she´s going to have a better life. She just had cancer and now they´re doing Chemotherapy. She says that if she would have had faith in God when she had the cancer the first time, they wouldn´t have had to do surgery and hurt her so bad. Now she just wants more time here in the world with her family. She is fantastic and went all the way to the District conference with us about an hour and a half away and she loved it. I hope that you have a fantastic week! Adios!
