HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!!!!!!!!!! I had a good Thanksgiving here in Mexico! Its not a holiday here, so pretty much nothing happened. I am not complaining when I say this but I am just going to say that I am thankful for all the Thanksgivings I have had at home and I am thankful for all the Thanksgivings I will have at home. It was different without turkey, taters, gravy, oh and my love that I have missed so very much...Pumpkin pie!!!!! haha but really I had a great week, and I am very thankful for the things that I learned this week. We had an awesome experience to have Elder Tenorio of the Quorum of the 70 come and have a conference with us. He gave a great talk. He told a lot of stories which I love. His wife read us the ¨giving tree¨ and we were all in tears. Man that book is good!!! After the conference he came to the offices with us and we got to sit down and talk with him for a while. I was so grateful for that opportunity! He is a very powerful man and there is no doubt that I knew he was a man of God the moment he walked in to the room. We are getting ready for Christmas here! We have a tree set up. I helped President with the lights. We have Christmas music playing all the time here. Its great. Next week are changes so this means I don't get to sleep. I am 99 percent sure that I am going to stay here in the offices for another change, but who knows. We found a few new investigators. We are changing things up a bit, and really focusing on the youth because 1.we are frustrated with the old people here. They will listen to us but they don't do anything and sadly that's 90 percent of the population. But I won't lose my faith!!! 2. is because my companion and I, we think we are kinda cool but who knows??? But I imagine we could get along with some teenagers and young adults. and 3. this ward has less than 5 people under the age of 22. not counting the 4 kids in the primary. WE NEED TO SAVE THE WARD!!!! I am having a great time here in Mexico, I am learning a lot from my struggles and challenges here. I have a lot to learn! I am thankful to serve a mission and to be here in Mexico! I am thankful for all of your prayers. I am thankful for this Church, and being a part of it. I am thankful for Christ, he did a lot for me, and continues to do a lot for me everyday. I am thankful for my Mom and Dad and all my brothers I love them all.
