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.

Wet Week

Hey everyone!

So this week has been good! We were basically soaking wet the whole week as it rained! Every time that it rains I feel awkward walking around in the street because people just look at you like you re nuts. And then you realize.. well you kinda are. I dont think Ill ever truly understand what people thatarent members of the church think about what we do as missionaries.... Well Elder Lopez is from Sonora and it never is cold there so he was suffering this week. It wasnt even cold... This winter is going to be an interesting one for him! 

Pricilano and Esthela didnt end up getting married this week because we didnt have enough witnesses for the wedding until after changes because who knows who is going to stay and who is going to leave. but they are both way excited! Even their four year old daughter is liking church now! Last night we visited Rosalba and she told us that she got her answer and wants to be baptized this next Sunday! So that ll be crazy exciting! Maria del Socorro has been a little sick lately and she went to the hospital and they found something in her stomach area that might be cancer or tumor so that's been a little hard to swallow. She goes to the hospital again tomorrow to check the results. Don Pablo is doing great! Its pretty amazing that just about every time we pass by his house hes outside in his chair reading! It makes me so happy! 

have a great week!
Elder Ahlmer
