Wow this week went by fast, i think time goes by faster in the state of Veracruz than in Oaxaca haha I am sorry to hear that Karly fell, its a good thing you didnt put her into Gymnastics ;) no im kidding, sorry Karly, AND HAPPY BIRTHDAY BY THE WAY!!!! i can not believe you're 12! Well here in Piedras Negras i have already learned a ton, i know this branch is really small, but the members here are really strong and are more than happy to do anything to help the missionaries, i have already felt a ton of love and support from them, it's awesome to have great members in the ward you serve in as a missionary, the work of the Lord goes so much more smoothly and we have a ton more success.
Mom i got your package!! thank you a ton for what you sent me, that package with those letters and little notes are better then gold, thanks a ton, and thanks for the oil containers also, i really have needed that, i´ve been robbing oil from my companions for about 2 months now, it will be awesome having my own little holder again.
Yesterday Elder Chamberlain and i got to go to Veracruz to have a leadership meeting. As we were in a taxi going to the church, we made the driver stop so we could take some pictures of the famous lighthouse of the port of Veracruz.
For the whole time i´ve been here we have been working with an investigator named Cezar. He's 12 years old but hes smarter then i am haha he was a referencia from some members that live next door to him, he has been to church for plenty of weeks now, and wants to get baptized. But his parents are from a different church, and wont let him get baptized. this week, we are trying to convince his parents to come to church with us so we can convince them to let him get baptized, you all have to pray a ton so that they will let him, he really is an awesome kid and a huge example for the courage that he´s showing to become the first member out of his whole family.
Well this is my weekly report, i love you all and i hope you all have a fantastic week, has chase sent in his papers yet?
Hey chase, when you worked at Garcias, did you know a man named Camilo Herrera Martinez? because if you did, he told me to tell you hi :) he´s from Piedras Negras.
Ok well i gotta go, i will write you next week!!
with love, Elder Snow
