Week 46 Letter January 27, 2014

Hello Everybody!

Hope you are all having a great week! Most likely cooler than mine. The hot season is already beginning. Today it is 81 degrees. Its wierd to have the temperature like this in january but im getting used to it.

This week went really well. We are starting to teach a new investigator named Delia. She is awesome! We taught her about the restoration and the Book of Mormon. She did not even doubt them. She is very excited to learn more. She has already read a lot in the Book of Mormon and will be ready for her baptimal date Febuary 14th.

This week we also did a special fast for one of our investigators. She wants to be baptized but her father does not want to let her. We actually did not get the answer we were expecting. We are going to baptize her but not yet. We felt that we need to help her proove to her father her desire to be baptized to help it be something spiritually amazing for the two of them. It was a great experience to recieve an answer although it was not entirely what we were expecting we know that we are doing the will of god.

Well hope everthing is going well!
Until next week

Week 44 Letter January 13, 2014

Mexico Villahermosa Temple: Elder Lightheart and Elder Navarro
Hello all!

This week was great. Although it was quite crazy it was still a good week. We had to go to Villahermosa a couple of time this week but it was to go to the temple and for a zone class. It made it so that we didn’t have as much time in Reforma but I learned a ton.

We are also going to be changing houses this week which should be pretty interesting but it will be good to be in a bigger house.

This week I got to teach English. We have been offering English classes to people and a lot of them are interested. It has been fun to teach my language and to talk in English for a bit.

We have been having a great time here in Reforma. There are a lot of great people here. The members are awesome. This week we started teaching an investigator. She was very interested in the Book of Mormon. It was great to see how the Book of Mormon helps people. She had a lot of questions which we were able to answer with the Book of Mormon. It is an amazing tool that God has given us!

Well, talk to you all soon!

Week 43 Letter January 6, 2014

Hello everyone!
Hope that you are all doing great in this New Year! 2014 already! No way. Hope you have all had a good one so far. 

This week was rather weird. It was hard because no one was home. It was strange to not have anyone around. We were the only ones in the street which is really weird for Mexico. The holidays are really different here. New Years is more celebrated than Christmas. They also have another day that they celebrate which is actually today! Happy Three Kings Day everybody.

The tradition for this day is that the people eat rosco de reyes. It’s a bread that they put some little dolls in. And if you take the piece with doll you have to make the tamales. I have had 3 pieces so far and I already took out two dolls. Not a big fan so far of rosco de reyes. Though it does taste pretty good. 

Well hope you are all doing well!
Until next week!
Elder Lightheart
