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.

Baptisms and Temple

Hey everyone!

This week has honestly been one of the most rewarding of my life! So many things that we have been working for for so long finally came through and well now Im not as stressed! 

So first off was the wedding! This Tuesday in the morning Pricilano and Esthela got married! It was pretty crazy but I cant believe that the actual service only was like 15 minutes long! All that paperwork and running around like crazy for a 15 minute service! They were so happy and it made all that so worth it! 

Then Wednesday we were able to go to the temple with Maria del Socorro and Pablo Peñaflor. The two people that got baptized like 2 months ago! It was an amazing experience! They both loved it so much and are doing well in the church. I am so grateful to be able to be a part of their conversion! 

Then Saturday Pricilano and Esthela were baptized! The service was so great. we managed to bring a few families that haven't gone to church in years. They loved the service as well and came to church yesterday! 

Sunday Pricilano and Esthela were confirmed and received the gift of the holy ghost. And Pablo and I blessed the sacrament and it was his first time.

I am truly grateful for this amazing experiences that I have had this week and over these past 15 months! 
Tonight are changes and I am crazy nervous to know what is going to happen! 

Have an amazing week! 
Elder Ahlmer
