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.

Baptism of Mario

Hey everyone!

So this week was pretty amazing we have been keeping ourselves pretty busy and I love it! So this Sunday was the baptism of Mario and he was so excited! Its one of the coolest experiences in the world to be able to be part of changing someones life! I love to just look back and see how much Mario has changed! When we first met him he was so sad and hardly talked and just miserable and now hes so happy always smiling. The gospel of Jesus Christ changes people. There's nothing in the world that I would rather be doing than helping these people here be more happy! Along with Mario we have been teaching a family of 16 people and as of right now  5 of them have a date set for the 27th of April! As well we have a family of four that want to be baptized we just don't have a date set! I'm so grateful to be here seeing these blessings! 

This week should be pretty interesting because it is semana santa or holy week and theres a bunch of traditions that should end up pretty exciting like Saturday everyone throws water and eggs on everyone! Sooo..... next week I should have some exciting pictures for you! Displaying 044.JPG
