Merry Christmas all the way from Tabasco!

Wow, this week was cool! I had the opportunity to Skype my family! It was cool being able to talk to them after 6 months and tell them all about how wonderful Mexico is! Haha. Well this week I was just working with the assistants and the secretaries. I believe this is the last week I'm with the assistants, they can't handle my wonderful teaching haha jk. This week we also had a Christmas dinner with the mission president. It was awesome!

My first Christmas here and it didn't feel like December! It just feels like another normal week! I guess it's normal for a missionary. I'm just out here working hard.... in the offices. The work right now is a little different. Instead of teaching all day, I'm out here trying to help out missionaries with some paper work. I'm a worker that has those 12 hour shifts. I'm soooo glad I'm going into the medical field. lol 

Well we are about to enter a new year, and I'm so excited to be here. Although it might be hard I know that it will be worth it in the end. I hope everyone has a wonder week! I'll talk to you guys later!

Writing on Saturday? #Sinner

Yeah well its official, I am sinning for using a computer on a Saturday on my mission!
I'm just kidding guys, I will never be disobedient! My P-Days have officially changed to Saturdays! So last week was transfers but they called us and told us that Elder Aguirre and I were both going to stay in Pomoca! That Monday we went to the ADO (bus station) to help out with all the missionaries that were going to be traveling. On the way back we stopped by the mission office because President Morales wanted to talk to me! We arrived at the mission office and he just took me into his office and start asking me how I feel about the mission, if I am obedient, etc. After that he told me that he had a special assignment for me. He said that he wanted me to help around in the office. Of course I accepted!! This is such a nice opportunity I have to help around. Al though some days I have to sacrifice time from our area, it’s okay because it's once in a lifetime experience to be around President Morales. 

For right now I am in a trio with the assistants. I'm going to be in a trio for a couple of weeks, but it's alright because I get to learn from them. I'm really excited to see what the future has in store for me. OH YEAH, I also get to skype in 2 weeks! How awesome!!! 

But here comes the best part! I am living in one of the best houses in the mission! This house is huge and every room has clima (A/C)! You are probably wondering why we still use clima, but tbh it's still hot here in Tabasco. 

We also get to go to the temple every Saturday, which is even better! Its soo cool!! I'm thankful for this opportunity! The message to every future missionary is, Be 100% obedient and work hard! 

I hope everyone has a nice week! Enjoy this wonderful time of the year! Be thankful for everything you guys have! If you guys haven't watched this video, I recommend you watch it right now! Go Go GO! 
  I'll talk to you guys later!
