We have had a lot of changes this week. Well more like today, in the past couple hours. We had a giant activity in downtown and we got together the two missions - Guadalajara, and Guadalajara east. We set up tents in the middle of these giant round about things(it kinda reminded me when I slept in the round abouts with my buddies), but it was day this time. And we got all the stakes from the city together and had the members contact people and bring them to us where we had little presentations and taught them a little bit. We cleaned out our storage room in the office and gave away all of the old stuff and all the vhs videos (we had a ton). Then if they were interested in having missionaries pass by in their house they wrote down their directions. It was actually way cool! A lot of members showed up and we had a ton of success. One area in the city received over 100 referrals!!!! The president said that has never happened in history. 100 referrals in between 1 companionship!!! Well that's were the changes come in. The President closed our area. His wife said because the members weren't doing their part. But I really love them and I am going to miss them a lot. So Elder Moguel and I are now in an area called union. It has been closed for a while and we are going to open it, well kind of. The area that had the 100 referrals is going to merge with this area and we are going to work reeeeaaal hard together to make sure all of the 100 referrals get baptized. So it will be a huuuuuge area with no borders between us!!! It is going to be quite the adventure and the truth is that I am super excited! We don't have food with any members this week so we are going to eat in the street  on the presidents tab! I am very happy about it. I am going to push my body to the limit! I haven't been sick for a while, knock on wood. Life is good here in the office. I can see miracles everyday and it is awesome! I love being a missionary. I am so grateful for this opportunity I have to spend Christmas here in Mexico. I will mos defs miss my family but I still will have a good time. I won't have to wait 4 hours  until we take a picture to open my presents, hahaha just joking. I loved every minute of those 4 hour mornings of waiting. Hermano Octavio is doing great! I am so grateful for the opportunity to watch him grow spiritually. He is preparing for the Melchizedek priesthood right now. I am so happy for him. I am praying that he can find a wife. That guy needs to get married. Well I love you all. I am very happy where I am, even though I don't know where I am going tomorrow. I will have fun with it and I know if we have the spirit we will see a lot of miracles.
