Well after a long weekend im here again in Morelia. I had to go to Guadalajara to sign papers. Apparently an Elder that works in the offices lost about 80,000 pesos and we had to sign something saying that we had nothing to do with it or something like that so i had a little mini vacation. It was good to see all the guys from my generation again. A lot of them know their flight plans and everything. I still dont know mine but you guys will know when i do dont worry :)
Things are starting to pick up here in the area. thanks for the prayers and everything. There have been a lot of those weird situations when we find people out of nowhere. We still dont know them really well but we will try to visit them all this week and make sure that they start to progress. The mission is changing fast and its wierd that its all coming to an end...
Adam its great to hear that all is going well with the language. It seems super tough and so im super happy that you are getting the hang of it! im glad also that you are super pumped to be in the mission. im super glad that you and i can share this time both as ELDERS.
It seems like just 2 weeks ago dad told me about his triathalon. Im sure it went super well and you felt good to be with the AZtriclub again. Thats one thing i regret is leaving the Hoschiman and AZtriclub shirts at home but real soon ill be able to sport them again. Well have to start training together, i know its a bit easier that way.
Zone conference was good, good and long. 7 hours was a little brutal but its always nice to be with the President and his wife. He seems a lot more relaxed this time and was even joking around a bit. He has always been a straight edged guy so it was cool to see him loosen up. They are focusing a lot on learing the language in the mission. Even the latin missionaries are to learn english in their missions and its cool that everyone comes to me asking for help.
Well folks, thats it for this week. I love you all and thanks so much for the support and and all that is done for the work of the Lord. Everyone take care!

well guys here is the weekly report! 
We found a new investigator that seems like he could progress real 
fast and he went to church on sunday with his less active girlfriend. 
Thats how we found him... we have few investigators but they seem like 
they really wanna hear the Gospel so thats a plus right? 
I had a great birthday and enjoyed all the birthday wishes from all of 
you. I get along super well with my companion so that always makes the 
mission fun. Today we celebrated the mexican indepenence day. They 
take 1000s of military and march around Mexico City so it was kinda 
interesting to see. We ate whats call eggs in their soup. it was 
basically chile in scrambled eggs. i really enjoyed it. of course we 
ate it with tortilla :) the food here is amazing and its funny that i 
dont really miss too many things from home. there have been a few 
things but im doing just fine! 
Its kinda cool being one of the older missionaries. We had divisions this weekend and i was with a brand new elder from Indiana and he didnt speak a lick of spanish. im so 
glad that i dont struggle with that anymore. I enjoy speaking spanish 
and i think it will become part of my future job...well see... 
We have zone conference this wed with pres. I always enjoy them 
because its always nice to just sit down and relax. We talk about a 
lot of things and almost every zone conference there are big changes 
so well see what the pres has in store for us this week. 
I am still in Morelia but im not sure what the address is. i always 
want to write it down so you guys can google map it but i always 
Well we gotta go we have a family home evening today and we gotta get 
prepared for it so wish us luck!! hope everyone is well and i miss 
you all. take care and ill talk to yall next week!

09/09 --- 21st birthday!

21 years old and wiser too, no really I'm really smart, at least what everyone says cause my hair continues to fall out. I just tell them im so cheap I don't wanna waste money on haircuts so I train myself to let my hair fall out... they all get a laugh.

It's been super good to hear from many members and friends and all the birthday wishes. The card you sent dad was super funny with the dinosaur, 创..but nobody ever helps me take it off创 GREAT STUFF. Things here in Morelia are going really great right now. My companion is from Mexico and is a Marine. He keeps trying to convince me to join, especially because of the stuff happening in Syria right now. I have no idea why all the wars and fighting but I guess it's just evidence of the second coming, right?

I'd like to let everyone know that I have the greatest parents in the world! I'm glad to hear of all the progress in the family, ward, and work. You guys are great and I'm so glad to represent the Lord and the ward. I know that there were changes in the ward but I still represent all the Fairview ward! woot woot!

Thanks to everyone for the support during all the preparation to the mission and during. It's so amazing to see the sacrifices that people make for the missionaries. It's great to be a part of this fast-changing and growing missionary work. It's hard but its also fun to go through all these new programs. I finally have the chance to be the example for all these new and younger missionaries.

I love you guys and I hope to see ya'll Thanksgiving day!

The days are flying by, I'll be home in less than 100 days! We had changes so I'm now 30 minutes from where I was and I'm with Elder De La Cruz. I met him about a year ago and am super excited to be his companion.

I might do boxing workouts when I get home!


Wow, it's so hard to believe that Adam will be leaving. It's also weird to be in the process of everyone joking around with me saying that I am going home so soon. I's hard to believe. I'm ready, though. I feel like it anyway. I've seen videos of Landon and heard you (mom) and Josh and Jess in the background, how weird that is!

This week was really interesting. I went to the hospital twice for two different reasons. Tuesday we noticed something on my upper lip. After we got done eating the same day, no nose started to inflate like a balloon. Pus started to come out so we went to the hospital to check it out. Turns out I've got a skin infection. I got medicine and rested for two days and later had an allergic reaction. My neck and face started to get red spots all over it and it itched really bad. My eyes had grey bubbles in them. I'm good for right now, seems like we are going to get soaking wet because it's pouring out.

Til next time.
