4 seasons in one day

Well. I don't have a lot of time today but we'll bust out something here.

I'm still having a blast. Elder G is the best and we always get along well every moment of every day. The rest of my district is also super fun and we're seeing a lot of blessings in the work which have been missing from the Macuiltepetl ward for some time.

This week we found a family of Africans! It's a mom and dad with two children, ages 6 and 9. They moved here 6 years ago from Nigeria, planning to go to Canada but the Mom had the child in Mexico so plans changed. The father says his sister just got baptized in the church and she it telling him that he should, too. I'm hoping and praying that they will be able to come this Sunday. What a miracle that people from all the way across the world ended up here so we could start to teach them. And in English, too! The 6 year old girl doesn't speak English but the father wants us to teach him in English, so that's a unique thing we've seen.

I also had an interview with President Saucedo this week. It went well. ''Wow. You really do speak Spanish!'' He's only here for two more weeks and then President Greer will take over as the permanent mission president.

Aaaanndd... the weather in Xalapa is quite ridiculous. Today it almost flooded and then out of nowhere a scorching sun came and dried it all up.  It's 4 seasons in one day.

I'm glad things were able to work out miraculously at Reynolds so that so few people were hurt physically. As you say, emotional scars are harder to heal from, though; I have also learned on the mission that emotional trials are definitely the hardest of them all.

I love you all.
