Sept. 17, 2015
Well this has been a SUPER eventful week here in Mexico. The mexico city temple was dedicated this week. before they had a giant culture celebration, and what a culture shock hahaha. it is for sure way different. then the next day we got to be a part of the temple dedication. that was one of the coolest experiences of my life. Later today we get to go to the temple and if there is room do some endowments. but it isnt looking likely because it has been packed since the dedication. Also some more crazy news. some guy tried to get into the mtc and killed someone outside the walls and then fired a couple rounds into the mtc before being stopped. no one here was hurt or even close. god protects his missionaries. Tuesday night/ Wednesday was mexicos independence day and that was crazy. We had to go to our houses early that night because everyone was shooting guns into the air...and what goes up must come down...hahaha. it was a super fun experience though. We got some cool mexican music that night coming into our windows though. We started this thing called "Tie Drafts". Everyone brings a tie and puts it on a table then everyone puts their name in a hat and then we pick the order of which you get to pick a tie. i have been very profitable in them haha. My tie game has been improving and i look to continue trading up. Also, i encourage you guys to look up a mormon message called "Good things to come". it is such a great message and comforts you when things are hard and also helps you see the purpose of enduring through hard times. When we let up or quit we leave room for satan to enter our lives emotionally and spiritually. i hope that message helps you guys. Well, this monday im off to chile. my flight is from 8 at night to 6 in the morning, give or take. That will be rough but im excited to start missionary work for real. hopefully my spanish can just keep up for a while because apparently the fasted dialect of spanish is spoken in chile. yikes...but i know the lord will help me as i am trying to serve.
