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.

Two New Comps

This week has been so awesome. Well first off there were changes and I now have two companions I am once again with Elder Quiej and also with Elder Jimenez! They are both a lot of fun and I am having a great time working with them. Its so much easier working with them. I learned so much about myself this last change but now I am grateful for the chance to work with some new people. We have been having a lot of success. This week Gilberto Izzet and Betty came to church with us and they all loved the services and told us how excited they were to come to church this next Sunday. We also have been able to see some more progress in the branch as far as people working together and well having fun together! This Friday we have a BBQ with the Elders quorum and well a whole lot of other stuff! Im so excited for this change! Oh and its been warm this week and it hasnt rained so we aren't super dirty all the time! 

Have an awesome week!

The Three Comps - No Faces!

Comp is my Comp


So this week has been good! It was a lot warmer actually I got sunburned... shocker right. Its a lot better in the heat because people actually get out of bed and leave their house when its warm outside. So its a lot easier to find new people to teach. My comp well is my comp but things are alright at least today are changes so we probably wont be companions anymore. I have learned a lot about myself this change and I feel like I have grown. This change has really showed me the real reason why I am here and for that I am grateful. I hope everything is going good up north! From what I have heard things are going great!

Hey everyone!

How has your week been? I hope everything is going well!

So this week has been pretty interesting. The last few weeks have been a pretty big struggle but lately I have found a lot of help through reading the book of Mormon. Last Monday our mission president gave us a challenge to read the book of Mormon in 45 days and be writing down what you have learned in a journal. I have never had a scripture journal before so I started this last week. I cant tell you how much the lord has helped me with the problems that I have been facing through reading. I have had much more patience  and felt so much more the spirit in my life. I know that the book of Mormon is the word of God and that we can only truly understand who God is by reading his scriptures. I hope you all have been reading the book of Mormon and if now well now is a great time to start! 

Have and awesome week!
