Matthew 16:25-26

Hello everyone. I hope you´re all enjoying your Labor Day weekend. American holidays just pass me by haha. Soon it´s going to be the Mexican Independence day which is good. It means that we are going to eat a lot of Pozole which is alright with me! 

Working in Hill Country
We had an alright week. We had to take some time to do other things that took us away from proselyting which was a bummer but that´s how it happens sometimes. Monday in the evening was good, we went to one of the ends of our area to a town called Ixtlacuixtla. We had a lesson with an investigator that went well. On Tuesday, we had some good lessons. We had an investigator that was studying to become a Catholic Father for 2 years until he left. He was doing well. He seems interested when we teach him he almost doesn't have questions which seems strange to me. I would think that an ex-future-father would have a ton of questions. We also had a few other appointments and in one of them we put a baptismal date which was great! Her name is Claudia and her father in law was a member. She also works in a bakery and gives us bread. :)

On Wednesday, we visited an other town in our area for the first time to contact a few references. It´s called Tizostoc and its pretty high up on one of the hills around here. We also taught a new family there of 7 which was good. It was an interesting lesson, it was difficult to keep them focused. After we went and taught a few other people in Por Venir, another town close by. On Thursday we had our weekly planning session in the morning, went to lunch and then went to the hospital in Puebla for my companions knees. We got back to the house super late. The next day we had the leadership council in Puebla. So we went to Puebla again. It was good, the President is getting into the swing of things. The last one was controlled mostly by the assistants, but now the President is becoming more comfortable. 

On Saturday we only had a few lessons with Ivett, the girl that was baptized a few weeks ago. She´s doing super well, she had a great testimony! She even asked us where she can go for institute. Puro poder! Sunday was good but kind of a let down. We were expecting to have at least a few investigators come but nobody showed up. We even passed by to go with Claudia but she had to work. It was a bummer, but the meetings were good. Our bishop gave a talk, he´s pretty powerful. He´s been a bishop for about 8 or 9 years here, well he technically started as branch president when Tule was a branch.
Foggy P-Day
Today was good but pretty bland. We didn´t have any activities, but in the morning it was super foggy. Visibility was really low. Yup. Everyone enjoy the end of your Labor Day weekend! Adiós!

Matthew 16:25-26
  For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.
  For what is a man profited, if her shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul.
