Mission Detail

The church has been in the Monterrey Area since 1922 but as you can imagine if you know the history of Mexico, the first 20 years were rocky. Religious persecutions of all kinds took place beginning in the late 1920′s. It wasn’t until the 1950′s that the first district was organized here. Our actual mission, the Mexico Monterrey West Mission was formed in 1994.

Our mission consists of twelve stakes and two districts. In Monterrey, which is in the state of Nuevo Leon, the mission includes six stakes. The rest of the stakes are in the state of Coahuila. Three stakes are in Saltillo. Two stakes are in Monclova. Piedras Negras has one stake with the two districts about an hour away from it to the south Nueva Rosita and to the northwest Acuña. Both Acuña and Piedras Negras are border towns with Texas.

Well I'm alive! 

I traveled safely to Monterrey! I love it here it's so pretty! It reminds me a lot of Utah but more dirty and more graffiti ha ha. Pero I love it! Its pretty hot! The people here are all so nice! I love trying to talk  with them in my broken Spanish. I'm sure I'll get annoyed at times but that just gives me more motivation to learn faster! 

I'm so glad that I got to talk to you guys! I found out that I can both receive packages and letters! It takes about a month to get them though.

Everything here is todos spanish my head is buzzing from all that I have been trying to remember. I love my mission president I can tell that he truly cares about my wellness and success. Well I can't wait to email you guys next Monday which is my Pday! 

Me amo ustedes mucho mucho mucho!!!
