Mexico City - Week #60

hey all,

hows it goin? i hope well. this last week was great. got to my new area with my new companion martes after changes. im now in an area called atlicpac 1 in a place called los reyes. you can prolly find los reyes on google maps. its more wide open spaces than city life. i like the change. our area is huge though.. a lot bigger than im used to. my new companion is named elder rodriguez. hes hispanic but from idaho. doesnt know any spanish which is kinda ironic lol. he gets made fun of a lot. hes gonna have a tough time the next couple months but everyone does when they start out learning the language and way of life. im helping him to the best of my abilities. i love how humble he his. hes a convert and was baptized 3 years ago. the only member in his family. his parents dont support the idea of himj being on this mission at all. he told me this last week, his dad tried to bribe him into going back home with a BMW Z4. dad, you dont wanna bribe me with anything special by chance, do ya? 😜 but all jokes aside, hes a really good guy. his home ward has helped him a ton with the living costs and moral support in the mission. his birthday is actually tomorrow and we are gonna throw him a surprise bday party in the night time with some good food and cake. (we actually planned it right in front of him) he doesnt have a clue whats going on. reminds me of myself a lil more than a year ago lol. so we are opening this area which means we start from scratch with everything. everything from knowing the streets to investigadores to knowing where the church building is. a lil tougher but nothing we cant handle. we are going to see a lot of success in these next couple months. i know it. anyways, thats about all i can think of for this week. hope you all have a good coming week and ias always, i love you guys! xoxo Elder Anderson
