¿como están mis amigos y familia?
im good here in mexico. sorry if this is boring, i feel sick. massive headache and stomach ache. but its all good.
so this week wasnt crazy or anything. nothing amazing happened. except for the fact that im a missionary in mexico and for the most part i really enjoy it.
this past week there is some thing going on where people walk somewhere for like a week to show devotion to the virgin mary or something like that. the catholics of course. and EVERYONE here is catholic. and people sleep in the back of like trucks and stuff. so ya we were walking to the church one day to use the baño and we see a really old lady hop out of the truck and go behind it and for some reason she was pulling up her dress and so we were like, whooooooaaaaaaaa.... haha then she squatted and starting peein in the middle of the street in front of everyone! it was really really weird and awkward haha.
my companion took the toilet off the other day because it was sucking again. we had a plumber come and he took it off and found a bunch of pesos and a marker in like the tube where the "stuff" goes and it was a lot better. but ya my comp took it off again and started like shaking it and stuff and a big rubber bouncy ball bounced out! haha it was really funny and ya i wanted to share that for some random reason....
i heard some amazing songs this week. only 2. in the tianguis. that i can remember. first: Let It Be by John Lennon. oh it was so awesome. i like, felt the spirit. haha its an amazing song. and it reminded me to just, well, let it be! also heard Loca by Shakira. one of my faves fo sho. haha. reminded me to not be loco.
oh ya this past tuesday was changes. but i stayed here with my same companion obviously. and so did elder Ferlin my friend from utah. he got a new companion, elder nuñez, and there are 2 other new elders, elder Lopez and elder Jimenez. elder jimenez is white too. super nice. oh and my companion became district leader. so he has a phone. he plays snake on it a lot. whatevs...
so i have this lil card called My Missionary Commission that i always carry with me. its way sweet and powerful. this is what it says:
I AM CALLED OF GOD. MY AUTHORITY IS ABOVE THAT THE KINGS OF THE EARTH. BY REVELATION I HAVE BEEN SELECTED AS A PERSONAL REPRESENTATIVE OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST. HE IS MY MASTER AND HAS CHOSEN ME TO REPRESENT HIM. TO STAND IN HIS PLACE, TO SAY AND DO WHAT HE HIMSELF WOULD SAY AND DO IF HE PERSONALLY WERE MINISTERING TO THE VERY PEOPLE TO WHOM HE HAS SENT ME. MY VOICE IS HIS VOICE, AND MY ACTS ARE HIS ACTS; MY WORDS ARE HIS WORDS AND MY DOCTRINE IS HIS DOCTRINE. MY COMMISSION IS TO DO WHAT HE WANTS DONE. TO SAY WHAT HE WANTS SAID. TO BE A LIVING MODERN WITNESS IN WORD AND DEED OF THE DIVINITY OF HIS GREAT AND MARVELOUS LATTER-DAY WORK.
