About my genealogy, I was thinking about it and I was thinking that I was making it sound like I needed it really quick. I didn’t mean to rush you or anything. Take your time, but don’t wait till the end of my mission. :) Thanks for my line of authority. I don’t know who some of these people are but this is going to help me a lot. I actually had a dream about it that made me ask you for it. I might tell you later.
I like this area. It is really hard to work here because practically nobody wants to listen to you. And the people who do, want to argue with you. But here you have to rely on the spirit a lot more to get work done and that has taught me a lot in these past two weeks.
It’s been really cloudy every day this week which has been a relief. The sun can really get you sometimes.
It is time for changes again and we didn’t get changed so we are going to be together for another six weeks. (If there aren’t any special changes)
Ah the Amazing Race! How I miss that show. And I love Japanese game shows. They are so funny. Like there is this one called "Human Tetris" Look it up on YouTube, it’s pretty funny.
We don’t have much time today so I’m not going to be able to upload any pictures. But everyone take care and enjoy life!

Our new area is pretty interesting. A lot harder than my last area. We actually have two areas that are ours. And its mostly the poor side of the city. We have been knocking all day, every day, since I have been here and we have only gotten into seven houses. None of those people are good either. This was the first time that I didn’t have anyone in the church. It wasn’t that fun. I felt like I was in Minnesota. Ha ha. No not really. I’ll have to write Logan a letter though. See how he is doing and stuff.
The names of the other elders that we live with are Elder Guterez and Elder Richards. They are a little weird to live with. But the house is really nice! We have a washing machine, and carpet, two stoves and refrigerators, fans, two bathrooms, it’s pretty cool.
Elder Toutai is one of the zone leaders here so that’s pretty cool.
I am so jealous that Uncle Larry got to go see John Pinette. Oh well.
Cameron sent in his papers! Woo hoo!!!
This internet place is playing a lot of the music that I used to listen to before my mission so it’s gettin me pretty excited for nothing if you can tell.
Well today the computer has a slot for my card so you’re going to get pictures. :) Yay!! That’s about all.
Everybody have fun. And enjoy life.

My new area is in a different city called Celaya. (Celaya is about halfway between Leon and Mexico City.) My new companion is Elder de los Reyes. We live in a house with another companionship. It is a lot rainier here and the city is a lot smaller and less expensive. A little bit more poverty. So I’m not going to be able to get peoples letters as fast anymore. About once a month.
Oh and I lost my hymn book I didn’t get the wedding invitation yet. But i should in about three weeks. :( Did you get me those things I asked for yet? (the genealogy and my line of authority) Those will help me out a lot.
Well that’s it for now. I just want to tell everybody that I love them and to keep the spirit in their lives.
Be safe and enjoy life.

We went to eat with this lady this week who always serves us weird stuff, but she never tells us what it is until after we ate it. This last time she served us tacos with cow tongue and rocky mountain oyster bits. It was pretty good.
Not much has happened. I know that I don’t talk about my baptisms much but we do have them. Almost every week. Maybe I’ll start telling a story every now and then. I don’t really know what else to say. If anybody wants to know anything just ask on my blog.
