Mexico City - Week #49

hey all,

this past week has been really great. we were able to get santiago in the water. unfortunately, his son was one month shy of being able to baptize him. santiago didnt want to wait lol. it was a good experience anyways because his son and his daughter were able to give talks about his baptism and confirmation. i think he had a great experience. right now, we are in the process of finding news like always. i dont think ive ever explained how exactly we find new people to teach but first, its with references from the ward or salt lake. they dont come in very often though so we usually go to our next source, contacting. when we need to find new people to teach, we go out talking to people in the streets or knocking doors. one out of every 10 or so accept a cita with us and about 1 out of every 10 of the ones who accepts the citas gets baptized. right know, we are really gunnin to find a whole family to convert. to be completely honest though, everything is based on the Lords time. if he wants someone to be found, he shows them to us. i have seen countless experiences of it and i know it to be true. 
apart from the work, we went to teotihuacan yesterday which was why i wasnt able to write. it was a super neat experience! i have lots of pictures to send you guys. our tour guide was LDS and gave us the tour using the Book of Mormon. it was really cool. many people believe that whenn Christ came to the Americas, he came to teotihuacan and that it was  temple one day. very fascinating.
but yeah, thats about it for the week. i love you all and hope you have a great day and week! nos vemos!
