You gotta know the bad to appreciate the good...

We have had some good stuff happen here. Tons of people I have taught from old areas are getting baptized, so that's awesome.
Here in the next week or so we will be having a baptism for a black man from Haiti. He comes to the Spanish branch because he knows Spanish and French but not English. He is really awesome guy.
I have been learning a lot of patience with my new companion; he is a good person but a hard companion at least for me. The transfer is already half over though and then he goes home. Plus we have been going on exchanges so I have time to get away. We live in an apartment with 4 missionaries and I am the only one that doesn't like Star Trek and world of war craft's a different world for sure.  But, you gotta know the bad to appreciate the good.
Our area is doing awesome though. The family in the picture is way cool though. We went over there and they would never answer.  I knew there was non-members in the house so we kept calling and going over. Finally we caught the mom outside cleaning her car one day and just got talking. I asked her if she had ever tried a root beer float before and she said no (they don't really sell root beer in Mexico). Anyways I convinced her to let us come back and make root beer floats with her kids. It was delicious and we ended up having a great lesson.
The son is a member and wants to pass the sacrament and the little girl asked us to baptize her. It great; I call it the root beer float miracle.
I am reading the New Testament now because I finished the Book of Mormon
last week. Turns out that book is true too!

I love y'all
