October 9, 2015 Ixmiquilpan

Hola Dad!!
How are you? Hows life treating you! 51 down, 51 still to go! 
Lifes going good here in the mission! This weekend was great with General Conference and all. I was surely blessed by the words that were spoken, many talks really did help me with my personal needs. I really did enjoy it! so many great talks! I hope you had a great Birthday Celebration! Just remember that you were missed and remembered here in Mexico! This week has been a little bit better with my companion, Ive had a lot more patience with him, but its still been a little bit of a struggle. But now i understand the words endure to the end better. haha, well I hope all is going well for ya! Keep on celebrating and have a great week!! Love you tons Dad!!!

June 8, 2015 Birthday Cake and Pancakes

Hola Dad!!
Time flies by super fast right!! I have to admit, I have been looking in the mirror lately and being 100% honest i think my hair line is starting to fade away... in no time we´ll be rocking the no-hair look together. I knew that it was coming and I'm pretty sure its starting to arrive, haha. 19 years, wow... flies by super fast!! 
I know you like receiving my emails, and so i was trying hard to send as much as i could to ya, but I guess we found out why I wasn't getting responses haha, So I'm in Xicotepec right now, in the state of Puebla here in M

exico and it is the farthest area in the mission from the mission offices... haha we feel so lonely out here because the closest missionaries are like 45 minutes away in Huauchinango. haha. but I love it here!! There's a lot of pretty mountains with a ton of trees!!
Tell Mark and Brenda thanks for everything and for the love they sent my way!! I hope they are doing just great in the mighty land of 10,000 lakes. It kills me to not be able to watch the finals, but I just don't worry about it cause I have no choice haha, but hows Lebron vs. the MVP? I'm sure they're putting on a show!! haha, I hope you are doing great dad!! And I hope you know i love you, and hope you have a great week!! Moroni 8:3

May 4, 2015 ... May the 4th (You are my Father)

Its great to hear that you all had a great time in Disney World!! I can only imagine the sunburns that more than likely occurred. 
How have you been?? My new Companion´s name is Elder Gámez with an A. The Panuaya that you found is the correct Panuaya. its a lot different than Zumpango. There´s a lot more farms and the houses are a lot more separated. Yes we had a Baptism last week!! The convert is named Jacqueline, she´s super great! Right now we are teaching her sister and we hope that she can progress as well!! The reason why I have slowed down with the weekly rundown is because earlier I was just copying and pasting the letters that I wrote to the president and now that I have six months in the mission Its a rule that i have to write him in Spanish!! haha, but all is well!! I´m still doing missionary work here!! trying to help my companion and to have more success in our area!! I don{t know what your plans are this Sunday, we will be able to call, i have an hour in total, I can call 30min to you and Tammy and 30min to my mom or if you all wanted to get together i could do 1hr with everyone!! It will probably and hopefully be skype again!! so when you have the plans all together, let me know!! Love you tons Dad!! I miss you tons as well!! Love you!

of my time here!! Like i said there is a lot of work to do here in
Panuaya!! p.s. that's the name of my new area!! I´m sorry I haven't
emailed in a while.  Lots of things have happened and right now I'm
trying as hard as I can to move on and keep working and give all my
"heart, might mind and strength".   I think I heard that we will be able
to skype again on may 10th, so I look forward to the opportunity to

March 30, 2015 Almost Easter in Zumpango

Go Kentucky, I guess, haha, Ill keep your knees in my prayers;) The
little girl in the fotos is named Valerie and she is the daughter of
our convert, Dolores. They are all super cool, and the kids say that
they want to be missionaries when they are older!! woohoo! We will be
able to watch Conference in the stake center, but i might have a few
struggles trying to find it in English, haha, This Easter weekend
should be great, I hear that here in mexico they do like a reenactment
of the crucifixion of Jesus, so that seems pretty fun (and a little
bit of apostasy haha) The people are so religious and coocoo here!! 

My comp is leaving to his house tomorrow and we have a lot of stuff to do before he leaves;) Ill talk to you more next week!!Thanks for always supporting me and loving me!! I love you tons Dad!!
Stay strong in the faith, this church really is true!!
Love you!!
