July 4, 2016 - INDEPENDENCE DAY!

Playing in the mud!

Working hard!

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  LAND OF THE FREE AND THE BRAVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Happy 4th of July everyone!!!!!!!  Hope you all had a blast this past week, and hope you have a crazy night of fireworks and wonders!!!!!  VIVE AMERICA!!!!!!!!
Everything here in Mexico is going great!  We'RE seeing a lot of changes with our new Mission President, all of which are great and helping us out a ton!!!!!  The members are helping, and we're seeing many miracles happen because of our obedience to God and his commandments!
Its been raining a TON here recently.  There was one day, where the rivers in the streets got so high and fast that there were literal RAPIDS in the streets!!!!  I was in a taxi, going to a baptism, so I was lucky enough to stay dry.  However we did joke about just going out and baptizing people in the streets, literally. 
This past week we've been helping out a ton with a bunch of service projects!  We de-weeded a garden of this one guy who could barely walk, and repainted a work building for a member in our building.  Being tall really helps, it means that everyone here in Mexico really needs you cause they can't reach that tall. 
We helped out with the Hermanas in my district this week a ton as well.  They are crazy!  After the last visit for the day, they just started jumping in all of the mud puddles they could find!  We obviously joined in with them, and it was pretty fun!
This week is looking great!  A lot of people ready to teach, and a lot of people with hearts open to listen to the message of God!
I don't have pictures of the baptisms cause I forgot my camera that day......  However, here are some of the Hermanas in my district!
Love you guys, have a great week!
