Hey whats up in Utah! Hows everything been going at home? This week for me has been pretty awesome! I think you all probably heard about the hurricane that almost passed over Catemaco last week, well i want you all to know that i didnt die haha! On wednesday night we got a call from the mission president saying that we needed to go buy some extra food and water, and get into our house because a hurricane was headed our way. i honestly was pretty excited haha! because i have never been through anything like that before. On thursday at about 1 in the morning it rained harder than i have ever seen in my life, and when we woke up at 6:30, we found out that our house flooded. After that i wasnt very excited anymore haha! All day thursday it rained pretty hard, but there wasnt any serious damage, a few trees fell down and a few houses flooded, but nothing really bad happened. But in Hueyapan anyhow, those rivers were on the verge of flooding the city, and almost everyone packed up what they could, as fast as they could, and left for higher ground. But luckily the rivers didnt flood, so we spent most of our day on friday helping people put stuff back into their houses haha.
Another exciting thing that happened in mexico this week was that WE BEAT BRAZIL IN SOCCER!!!! on saturday morning, every tv we passed, on every radio, in every taxi, that game was being played and replayed over and over again. and when they won, the whole city went flippin nuts!
My companion and i also had a baptism this week! her name is Mariana. Last monday i wrote to you a little about her, well she got baptized on saturday. we will also be having another baptism this week on friday! but i will tell you about it next monday when i have more time to write.
with love, Elder Snow
