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.

Hey everyone! 

So these past few days have been pretty cool! Mario is so excited to be baptised! This Sunday the other elders had a baptism and he went to go watch it and he felt the spirit crazy strong! He has seen the gospel change his life. Now he doesnt drink at all and his daughters, who never wanted to talk to him because he was always drunk, have been visiting him and want to come to church with him! So thats super exciting! And with Jesus we finally put a date for him to go visit the Judge and put a wedding date! Im really excited I just hope its sometime soon because I want to be there! Isabel and her family are still doing great. They couldnt come to church this week because her daughter had a Jazz dance final but she is still crazy excited.

Today is changes again and as usual Im nervous but not too nervous because Elder Quiej is still in training and its pretty rare that theres changes during thier training! 

I hope you have a great week!
Elder Ahlmer
