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.

Baptism of Celestino

Hey everyone!

This week has been full of miracles but soooo stressful!

The baptism of Celestino was so amazing. His baptism was really a
miracle. From the first day the we met him I knew there was something
special. Well it wasnt too hard to guess he came up to us and told us
that he wanted to go to our church and be baptized. The example of his
fiance really had a big impact on him. It has made me think a lot
about the importance and the power our example has in the lives of
others. Without her example I dont know if we would have ever met
Celestino. He probably would never would have gone up and talked to
us. I hope that I always be like her and share the Gospel with
everyone that I meet. Actually for his baptism his daughter was able
to come with us and she came to church this Sunday as well. Now the
example of Celestino is helping his family follow in his footsteps!

Everything is going good with  Milagros, Edwardo, Mirna and Ricardo.
They will get married this Thursday at 11:30 and 12:30! I am so happy
for them and the choices that they are making. This Sunday after the
services they will be baptized! its amazing how the gospel has had
such an impact on their lives and you can honestly feel the difference
in their home now from when we first met them.

I am so grateful for the gospel of Jesus Christ that is a guide for us
in everything that we do.

Have an amazing week and Happy Mothers Day!
