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.

Baby Blessings

So these past few days have been really good! Today we went to hike Chapinque with our Zone Mitras! It was so much fun but we couldnt see much becuase the top was covered in a cloud! But after we all went to a huge mall here and I felt crazy weird to be in normal clothes in a mall. It was really fun to just leave the city and see something green for the first time in too long! At the top there are a bunch of slides and the slides in Monterrey are just smooth cement so you cant really move too well but we had fun anyways! 

This Sunday was really cool to start the day off we watched 8 baby blessings! Like only two people could give their testimony! One of our investigators Angelica came and we have been working with her forever but she and her husband finally quit smoking and drinking.

Her husband is a member and she wants him to baptize her so we have to wait to hear what the bishop says to be able to baptize her but she has already gone to church a ton of times so it could be way soon! 

Well I dont have much time bvut I hope you all have a great week!
