Casi Soy Mexicano

 Academia Juarez, the best school in Mexico. (Because it's from the Church.) 

This week was just your average ordinary everyday week. We visited some members, investigators, less actives, and everything else. 

The highlighs of this week were when we taught Angelic and her daughter Stephanie about the laws and comandments of the Church like tithing and the Word of Wisdom. They both accepted to live the laws and hadn't really had problems with them before. And their baptism is this week and I'm suuuppper excited--as are they. 

Another highlight was that we found a new family to teach! And they are super cool and I hope that they can progress. 

And the last highlight is that this morning we went to Colonia Juarez which is another colony seperate from Dublan where more Americans live! It's also were the Academia Juarez is and the TEMPLE! 

The temple of Colonia Juarez, the worlds smallest temple.

This morning was amazing and I loved every second of it. One of the members of the ward is a bus driver and he said that he could give us a ride (it's about a half hour away) so we hopped in and were there from about 7:30 to 10:30 and I tooks pics so you can know what it was like there. 

The beautiful town of Colonia Juarez. 

But that's about it for the week! I love you all and hope you have a great week/July!

There is a story about this river. It is said that the Mormon settlers lived in a good town with a nice river and where kicked out by protesters so moved to Colonia Juarez and needed water so they prayed and fasted and then the old river changed its course and became the river where I'm standing.

  1. I love the story about the river!! And I can imagine that being able to go see the temple and church school was just awesome. Of course best of all is your upcoming baptisms and finding a new family to share the gospel with. You're great Elder St. John!! Keep on keepin' on. We celebrated our wonderful country this weekend and had a great time.
