HOLA! Como están mis amigos y familia?! Yo, estoy un pocito perdido ahorra! So today was transfers, and to my surprise I am NOT in Campeche right now, I am in Izamal! We were with a family of recent converts and a couple of investigators last night, investigators that I actually found and had been teaching, when we got the call and it was actually really sad. I feel like I didnt do everything I wanted to in Santa Lucia 2 but the Lord knows better than me! So yeah I woke up nice and early at 4:30 this morning and got into Mérida at around 9 where I met up with my new companion Elder Cornejo. He arrived the same day as me here in México but I have 4 more weeks than him because he is Mexican and was in the Mexico MTC, but yeah I am the Senior Companion now! I dont know what I am doing!!! I feel like I would be fine in the area that I know and am familiar with but I feel super lost! And Elder Cornejo is pretty quiet and timid so I feel like I am going to be doing a lot of growing this transfer… Izamal is about an hour and a half away from Merida, and I think it is the farthest east area in our mission before it becomes the Cancun mission. Look up pictures or on GoogleEarth because it is really cool! All of the buildings in Centro are yellow haha, I will send pictures when I have actually taken some! All I have done today is sat in buses and unpacked. It was really weird to leave Campeche, I really, really loved it there, especially the members and my investigators. I am going to miss them a ton and wish I could be there for their baptisms, but I have other things to do here in Izamal!
So as the subject says, this week was a rainy one! I said in my last letter that it had rained the most since I had gotten here but I was a little premature in saying that! ThatMonday after I had finished writing and all that stuff, we went to the Stake center to play futbol like we do every Monday, and after about 5 minutes of playing it started to sprinkle. And then in seconds it was like a hurricane!! It was amazing haha. Not only was it epic because it was in the middle of a hurricane but also I am getting a lot better at futbol! I am slowly but surely becoming Mexican! Whoo!
So first! My zone leader and grandpa Elder Barrow left this week which was bittersweet, but he left me his Ipod and my life is a million times better now! Ahh! I had just the classic hymns on disc but now I have the beautiful stuff! A world with music is a much better world! On his last day in Campeche we ate together with our Bishop and his family at Little Caesars which was cool! I dont know if it was significantly better than Little Caesars in the States, or if my taste buds have just degenerated, but it was really good! ha
So first I have to say how awesome it was to hear and see pictures from Ben’s baptism! Holy cow I miss my family! You are all perfect and I wish I could have been there. I definitely miss my Benjamin and I am so proud of the decision you made to be baptized! Now more than ever I have realized just how important and sacred Baptism is. And necessary it is too!
