Dear Family and Friends,
This week was a super great week! We had Stake Conference here in Piedras Negras and I really enjoyed all of the meetings! The Temple President came up from Monterrey and gave a really good talk on the spirit and how important it is in our lives.
I tried Mexican deer meat last Wendesday and it was pretty good! I beat the chicken neck I had a few weeks ago!
Last night, we were able to watch the Christmas Devotional that took place in Salt Lake in the Conference Center and I loved the talks! Be sure to keep in mind the true purpose of the holiday season this December, our Savior Jesus Chirst and His birth!
Also, we have Cambios/transfers tomorrow! I will be staying here for another month and a half!! I was pretty certain my current companion, Elder Vielma, was going to stay and I would leave, but he only has 3 months left on the mission, so he is going to be a zone leader in Monclova and I will stay here! I don't think the President wanted to take out both missionaries and lose all the progress that Elder Suarez, Elder Alcala, and Elder Vielma and I had done for 4.5 months. Actually, 12 of the 14 missionaries in my zone staying here too. I love my house, it's sweet, my area is good too!
I have no idea what my comp is like. Or where he is from, Elder Vielma thinks he has been out a year but who knows.... Should be good! I am really happy that I can stay here with the wonderful people I already know and spend the holidays with them. The members are so good to take care of us. And I really like the other two Americans that are serving in the area next to me, but go to the same ward with us. We eat together three or four times a week. This should be a good week getting to know Elder Holmes and start working with him! It will be different living with an American! I have only been with Mexican companions since I got here.
Enjoy the holiday season, take time and remember Christ in your life.
