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.

Priciliano & Esthela - Wedding Bells

Hey everyone! 

So this week has been pretty stressful! So Priciliano and Esthela both want to get married and baptized! We put a date of their wedding for this Wednesday... so now you understand why Ive been stressed. Try putting a wedding together in less than a week.... Im not sure if well make it.. who knew getting married was so hard. But the good thing s they are going to get married. The bad news is I dont know if ill be there for it. This next Monday is changes and who knows what will happen! They're both really excited and are loving the church. As well we have been teaching someone namedRosalva. She has been to church 2 times now and has a baptism date for the 21st of this month as well! I really hope they dont change me the 14th! 

We also had a visit from Elder Valenzuela. Hes the second counselor in the area of Mexico. He talked with all the missionaries. It was pretty cool we talked about a ton of things but what stuck out most to me is member and missionaries working together. He told us to remember that we are here to support the members not the other way around. That hit me kinda hard. I feel like lately I have been thinking more that they are there to support us. I guess its time I fix that! 

Well have an amazing week! 
Elder Ahlmer
Im on top of the world! (thats me so ya know..)
