Hey fam! First of all, i´m so proud for Kameron! He´s going to love it. North Carolina would be pretty sweet. Although i´m pretty sad that i won´t be seeing him for another 2 years.. haha but you´ll have to tell him to write me before he leaves. I´d love to hear from him.
We had a pretty awesome week. I got my package today! Wow.. Definately one of the best packages yet. Nicely done mother. I love you! Everything you sent is perfect. As we are speaking i´m puting the music on my ipod. Thanks Mckell! And thanks Lexi for the letter! For the next package i´d love some skippy, creamy por favor. It´s been a while.. I also love it when you send power bars. I´m going to try to think of more things and remind you next week. But thanks so much! I also got a few letters from people from home. Thank you!!
This week was great. I think i already told you but we were working in a trio. We worked 2 days en our area and 2 in the area of Elder Amaller. He is the other Elder in our district. His companion was in Cuiacan for a training meeting all week long. Elder Amaller is a great worker. He is a summer missionary so he´s only serving for 3 months, but he´s awesome. He´s 26 and was born in Mexico but raised in Canada so speaks English and Spanish perfectly. With 3 missionaries we had 3 times the spirit in every one of our lessons. We had a few super powerful lessons. One being with a new investigador named R. He doesn´t have legs and moves around in a wheelchair but that doesn´t stop him from doing anything. He raises chickens and spends the majority of his day feeding and caring them. We teach him right in the middle of his chicken house where he keeps all of them. He also has a pet bobcat. A little rare.. We taught him about the plan of salvation and it was insanely intense when we talked about the ressurrection and that one day we´ll all have perfect, glorified bodies. He says he´s glad that he´s the way he is because if it weren´t for his disability he woulnd´t be so close to God. We´re hoping he can understand that he still needs to get baptism in order to take the next step, but i know that God gave us our weaknesses for a reason and that, if we humble ourselves, through the atonement every weakness we have can be made strong.
We also had an an awesome experience with a less active member. He got baptised in Arizona and has been inactive since he moved here because he doesn´t feel the same amor here in the branch in Mexico. He told us about the time he went to the the general conference and see the Salt lake Temple in Utah and how strong he felt the spirit. When he started talking about he started crying. He was seriously SOO greatful to have been able to go and watch. It´s something that very few people here can do. I won´t lie, i have always taken it for granted living so close to the conference center and the temple but i´ve made a promise with myself to take advantage of every oportunity i have in the future to be able to go. Well i hope you all have a wonderful week and know that i´ll be praying for you. Love Elder Mecham
