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.

This week we found an amazing family. Im positive that the Lord has been preparing them to receive the gospel of Jesus Christ. The mom Ivon was a really strong member of another church for over 30 years teaching classes and everything but started to realize that things were wrong within the church. She told us that she always felt like there was something missing. When we taught her and her family the Restoration the loved it . It answered many of their doubts that they had been asking themselves for years. They had always thought that it wasnt right the Jesus only was in the east and never went to visit everyone else. Honestly this family has strengthened my testimony so much that the lord is always getting people ready to receive the gospel we invited them to baptism and they all accepted and we are working with them to reach their goal.
