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.

Don Pablo Death

Oh and I forgot to tell you guys. 

Remember Don Pablo. Well a few weeks ago he got really really sick and when the missionaries went there one of his last wishes was to see me. President Swapp gave me permission to go and see him. Friday I went and saw him and talked with him. It was an amazing experience. He kept on thanking me and told me how excited he was to be able to preach in the next life. I am so grateful to be able to do what I am doing. Tuesday I got a call that he had passed away. I will miss him so much but I can not wait to see him again. I love this work.
