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.

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!
Elder Ahlmer
