It was another week of pure sun, work, walking, and tacos. It feels good to be a missionary. No baptisms, but I now have been gone for four months and each week is getting faster and faster. I can`t even remember what happened this week, that is why I am rambling through this beautifully written introduction. This week we got out the area book and started looking through old investigators there. There are a million names in the binder but not as many directions which makes things difficult. We know that there are people in there that are ready now to hear the gospel but we just have to find them. Tudesday we walked the entire morning and afternoon finding them. So far they`re all duds. Every day 2 Nephi 28 and 29 are my life. We have a bible!! I don`t want anything else. I love seeing scriptures fulfilled. The best part about the mission is everday I have the oportunity to learn from other people`s mistakes. I get to see what kind of person I don`t want to be. I get to see that wickedness never was happiness. The best is when we can help other people realize that too. Yesterday Mauro got the Aaronic priesthood. I remembered the first time we taught him and I didn`t really think it would go anywhere. But the Gospel is for everybody and can make everyone happy. And he as he starts this path all by himself is starting to feel that happiness. On Thursday night we met the zone leaders at a bus station called La Joya and I went with Elder Vial from Oregon to his area in Contreras. I woke up at like 3 in the morning and had a horrible stomach ache. When I woke up in the morning I was still sick. We called the doctor and we went to one of these shady pharmacies that you don`t need a prescription to go to and got some meds. It was just like dramamine and something else for my stomach. The doctor told me to drink watered down gatorade and not eat the whole day. After an hour I felt pretty good and we went out to work at 10 am. We had 0 lessons. Okay we had 1 lesson. We walked and walked and I was dying. Haha. We had some really good contacts though who had been looking for the missionaries. Elder Vial was a lot of fun too. His first area was Topilejo. We had a good time. We met back up with Elder Leyva that night and I was hungry so I ate tacos. My stomach as been pretty good since but a little delicate. We had another good lesson with the Zapetero Ramòn yesterday before church and they are coming to church with us next week. We didn`t have p-day today because this Saturday Elder Leyva and I are going to go to some pyramids in Morelos!! I can`t wait. Hermana Lulu`s brother is going to take us and we got permission from President Chavez and everything. I know that the Book of Mormon is true. Read it. I love you all and have a good week. Sorry this letter was boring.
