April 27

que tal familia!

well this week things have definitley been cooking in Merida.. or I should say Ive been cooking. (literally) we´ve gotten up to 43 grados.. or being 109 degrees. WOOT WOOT! hermana duron and I sing "our saviors love" every morning when we leave the house. tal como el sol, es el amor del salvador. to remind us that our Father in Heaven and Savior Jesus Christ are showing us their love through the sol tan brillante. jaja. it gives us a little comfort while we are sweating. 

this week has been super good, we had our 8 principios every morning this week. Its always fun to be together as a zone. Its where we practise and learn the fundamentals of la obra misional. its always in the FUNDAMENTALS. doing the little things is what makes us great. We had a million practices, but the spirit was super strong with us. And we all got super close as a zone. long live zone lakin!! 

right now we are having a little bit of struggles in the area, not anything too big. our inv. Abraham that is getting baptized is going to be a little late for baptism because of some things from his past. but his desire is super strong. 

we had a cool little experience, Elder Diaz one of our zone leaders has a contact that he made earlier on in his mission that is named Israel. He was the one who helped us with the activity that we did of the newsreport thing. Hes a professional broadcaster and his familiy is very very wealthy. He invited us to eat in his house on sunday because he loves the missionaries. he isnt a member, and wants to progress but his father is a pastor de un otro iglesia.. he always invites the missionaries over to eat and everything to try and help with his family and stuff. It was a really cool experience. His family is really awesome! soo kind and sweet. I invited one of his sisters and her kids to the english clases we are doing and hoping that we can help him in his situation. They fed us really good as well. He lives in a restored hacienda, its like the old colonial houses of merida. hahah i felt a little like white trash :) but we were able to sing jesus es mi luz and share a little message with the family. theyre super awesome.

everything is going great, theres always a little bit of bumps in the road, but we get over them and we grow. our father in heaven gives us these bumps so we can see that we can overcome them with his help if we have sufficient faith. 

i love you all so much!
