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.

Happy Birthday and 2 cakes!

Hey everyone!

Well its changes time again so as usual Im pretty nervous to see whats going to happen! Its always an awkward week because you dont know if you should say goodbye to the people or not. But I guess thats just part of the mission!

Yesterday was pretty amazing I hope everyone had a great mothers day! It was awesome getting to see my family and talk to them! I loved it! Its crazy to see just how much they have changed! Things are going to be pretty different in another 15 months thats for sure! 

So yesterday we were supposed to talk in church and you all know me I get crazy crazy nervous so there I was in church almost dying and then the bishop told everyone that there is a change in schedule and the missionaries arent going to be speaking.... I was pretty happy but it would have been a little nicer if he would have told us a little sooner. 

I hope you all have an amazing week!
