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.

So first off this space bar doesnt work too well so there might be a few words connected sorry. 

So this week has been pretty exciting! First off with changes. I am still in Estanzuela but my new companion is Elder Perez! Im so happy that Im still here to work with the branch. The branch president just got relieved and the new president is so excited and I can't wait to see how fast the branch starts picking up speed! 

We still are waiting for Esthela to get back from Toreon to be able to get married but they areboth doing well.And this gives us a better Chance to teachPriciliano a little bmore because he is a little bit colder and harder to find out his needs. As well we are teaching a new family that came to church with us sunday Rodrigo Patty and Erik.They are pretty cool.They all loved the church and told us that they are excited to return to the church next weekRosalba is still doing good shes passing through some rough stuff right now and feels like she isnt worthy to go to church so she didnt come sunday. But we've been helping her out. She told us this week that she now knows why she came to Monterrey she thought it was for work but now she knows it was to be baptized! 

So this week has been a rainy one and I got a cold like last Monday that still hasn't gone away because I get wet basically everyday. But I hope that Im about to come out of it!

Have an amazing week!
Elder Ahlmer
