So this week not really much interesting happened!  We're all here just preaching and teaching and doing what the Lord would have us do, so its all pretty awesome!  Tonetiuh and Francia are coming along great!  And we have a lot of other investigators progressing rapidly!!!!!

We did have a temple dedicated here in Mexico though (Tijuana)!  We got to watch the Cultural Event, and also the three dedicatory sessions! It was awesome!  We have one more temple here on Earth to complete all the ordinances of salvation that are necessary, and it to have eternal families!!!  You guys back in the states are lucky to have a temple so close to you!!  Take every opportunity to go to the temple that you have!!!!
It was also really cool watching Pres Uchtdorf and another Elder Oaks of the quorum of the twelve apostles trying to speak spanish!  They had translators with them, so they gave most of their talks in english, but they memorized certain parts in spanish for the people here.  Honestly it was interesting seeing them have difficulty with spanish, but the fact that they memorized all that spanish for the people here really showed how much they love the people of the Church.  It was another testimony to me that they truly are apostles of the Savior, Jesus Christ.  It was also kinda funny, they can be pretty humorous when they want to be!
I'll try to take more pictures this next week!
Siempre Fuerte,
Elder Pettingill
