May 25 in Reforma, Veracruz City
This is the weirdest change in my mission. So first I get taken out of Carlos A. Carrillo, then now guess what? The dearly beloved Elder B (He's an AWESOME missionary, companion, and friend) gets changed our of here on MORE special changes! He left today in the morning. He's going here close by in the stake Veracruz (the first stake to be established here) and my new companion is Elder C! I just barely met him but he appears to be pretty cool. I'm super excited to work with him. The bad news is that I hardly know anything about my area. I only have two weeks here, so we're almost in something called whitewash, which is when they pull all the missionaries out of an area and put in 2 new ones that don't know anything. Anyways this week was awesome. We had 6 less active members come to church and 1 investigator! But this week we could have something like 5 or 6 investigators! This one lady that we are teaching that I talked about last week, she's probably in her early 30's and she is married with 2 kids. All her life she's been searching for the true church. She prayed about the Book of Mormon and asked to know if it was true. She got the answer yes. Now she wants to get baptized as fast as possible! How cool is that? Anyways I don't have much more time and I want to respond to some individual emails but I want to tell all you guys that I know that this church is true. I've read the Book of Mormon and I know it is true. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet. I know Thomas S. Monson is a prophet today and that Jesus Christ, the very son of the living God, guides and leads this church today and is the path to salvation. I hope you can all come to know it too by having an open mind and open heart and a sincere desire to know. If you have those things and pray and ask, the answer will be eventually made manifest to you. I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ, amen.
