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.

Tamas for Thanksgiving

Hey everyone!

This week has been pretty interesting. First off thanksgiving was pretty good! Even though I miss the family party Elder Perez and i celebrated our own way! We bought Tamas which is like a huge taco with well a bunch of stuff! 

Friday we had an open house in the church and it went really well! We invited a lot of people and many came! I felt like it was really well organized and people enjoyed and learned more about the gospel. The church has taken a new initiative this Christmas trying to help everyone understand the true meaning of it. They created a new website called christmas.mormon.org Its way cool. There is a 3 minute video there and we have been doing all that we can to help other people see the importance of Christmas! It has been working well. We have found a lot of new people to teach including a lot of family members of members that have had their heart softened hearing about Christmas! Its been a great success. But we had a really cool experience during the week when a member took us to visit one of her friends and invite her to the open house. When we got there she was really closed and didnt want to talk about anything. She kept on saying Lets not waist you and my time and stuff like that. But when we started talking to her about the Christmas everything changed. She opened up so fast it really shocked me. And that same day she went with her member Friend to the open house! I invite you all to talk with a friend and share the quick video with them its an awesome way to start talking to them about the gospel! 

This Saturday we had the baptism of Xiemena the youngest daughter of Maria that turned 8 two weeks ago! It was pretty special all her kids sang. 

Well I hope everyone has an amazing week and that you all share the video!
