An Update

Well It was a good week but not really much to report since I wrote on Wednesday. Its still just as hot as ever.
We are getting ready to receive our new mission president next week and saying good bye to the old one. Its a little weird to be honest. It will be good to learn from a new president but we will miss president Romney.

I will be home on the 15th of august so the 19th works out just fine [for Elder K's homecoming talk].

Yes, we still go to the temple once a month... well I go there more because my chapel is right out side but we only go into the temple once a month. We still eat with members here but it is very diverse. This area has super poor members a really well off members. So each day is a surprise of what we are going to eat.

Sounds like you guys are just as busy as ever. I keep thinking I will be going home to the calmness and away from the craziness of Mexico, then I remember where I come from haha.

As for cooking I have not really learned much but I will practice when I get home. haha don't worry... or maybe you should worry.

Love you guys,
Elder K

A Dirty Dog

Things are going great here in Estanzuela. We baptized Francisco the other day and we have a few other people that are getting to that point. I am really liking this area but not so much the sun. It has been getting really hot. We walk a ton up and down the mountain so you get real sweaty. I took some pictures but big surprise that the top notch computers that they have here aren't letting me attach anything... so you will have to wait till next week.

The only story that comes to mind right now is about a dog. The guy we baptized always has dogs show up at his house from the street. on Monday a little puppy (no more than 6 months old) showed up. It had hundreds of big ticks in it and even more fleas, on top of that it hadn't eaten for a long time. so we spent a good chunk of time picking all the ticks out of it, giving it a good bath and feeding it. It was nasty. You couldn't even see inside its ears because there were soooo many ticks. I am happy to say that he looks a lot better now.

Not really much more to report. Just truckin along. I love you guys. Thanks for everything.

Time Flies...

I agree 100% time is flying by. I had an odd feeling yesterday as I realized that I only have 10 more Sundays in the mission. Don't worry, I'm not letting the trunkiness get to me. Things are going awesome here. I love having the temple in my area and the people here are great. We are going to have 2 baptisms this Sunday. One of the people that is going to get baptized helped build the temple 10 years ago. He had always wanted to stop by the church and see how it was but never had the guts but last Tuesday he was driving his truck along with out any problems when all the sudden it broke down out of the blue right in front of the temple. So the guard came out to help him and he left his info so we could visit him. To put it simply we visited him and he accepted baptism in the first lesson, went to church yesterday and will be getting baptized this Sunday. Funny how his truck decided to brake down in that very spot--haha.

My comp. has 18 months in the mission. He finishes in December. We checked it on google maps and he lives 3 min away from our house how crazy is that. What is this persons name that Jenni thinks is his cousin?
It was super hot here and going up and down the mountain all day makes a guy very sweaty. I felt like the only time I wasn't sweating was in the cold shower but even then I might have been sweating and just didn't realize it. The past 4 or 5 days have been pretty cool though. Some storms have rolled in every night around 6 so we get soaked and the roads turn into rivers but I think its better than the hot.

That will be crazy having Justin and fam so close by. I feel like I haven't seen them in forever. Where will he be working?

Well good luck with summer vacations. Things are good here. Love you guys.
