Week 92 Letter December 15, 2014

Hello Family!

Another week come and gone and all of the sudden we are half way through December and this transfer.  Even though for the first week that Elder Pugmire and I had we seemed stuck in some weird time warp, we still find ourselves almost in 2015.

Everything is going great for us.  Wilber had has interview yesterday.  Everything went well. He is super prepared. He will also be changing his job which is great news because he will not have more time for the Church.  He and his son will be baptized this Saturday. 

We’ve been focusing on finding a lot of new people to teach so not much new to report this week in the way of people’s progress. We are trying to find a lot of people for January. Other than that, the week was kind of weird.  I don’t know if you all know, but the 12th of December is the day to celebrate the Virgin Mary.  SO all of the people were celebrating it by taking statues to the Catholic Church.  It looks pretty cool but it was kind of hard to find people because of it.

Also, here in Tecnol√≥gico, we are right next to a Pemex Factory.  Pemex is the oil company here in Mexico. Well, it hasn’t really been a bother. We have never really recognized it before but for some reason this week it started making a beating noise. It was so bad that Elder Pugmire and I could not even hear each other.  It sounded like we were behind a couple of 747s all day long.  Needless to say, it was kind of a hard day to work. Luckily it is done being noisy now.

Well, Christmas is now in full swing! He is the Gift has been a big success so far. In fact, Yesterday, as we were walking down the street, we heard someone listening to it.  We could not find them unfortunately, but people are beginning to see it.  Fun time to be preaching the gospel!

Week 90 Letter December 1, 2014

Hello Everyone!

Happy December! Can’t believe that November is already gone. It went by really fast for us. It was a really good month though. And I am really excited for December.

So Wilber and Wilber are doing super well.  They actually came to the Priesthood Preview this week and Wilber, Jr. participated in the program. The Stake President had him saying the closing prayer. President Trejo actually thought that he was a member! They have really made the church theirs. Everything seems to be progressing well towards their date for the 13th of December.

This week has been really fun because of the new initiative the Church has called, “He is the Gift.” I imagine you have already heard about it. If you haven’t seen it and/or shared it on Facebook, go do so right now! This is a great opportunity to remind everyone of Christ in this important time of Christmas.

We have had a lot of success sharing this movie so far.  A lot of people are really interested in seeing it.  We have a couple of activities planned in the stake and with the ward to get more people to know about this video. I hope all of Minatitlan can see the video.

Elder Pugmire and I have been having a lot of fun and success together. So far I was pretty confident when I heard that we were going to be companions that we were going to have a great transfer together. I am super excited for the work we will do together.

Morgan continues to be a stud. He is probably the most active youth in our ward. I can’t believe that he has only been a member for only three weeks. Great example of faith.

Thanks for all of you support!
