June 3, 2013

Baptism of Jesus and Catya Taco Guy! We got locked out of our house! Saying Good Bye to Elder Harrison! Rainy season in Mexico ¡Buenas noches mama! What’s new in Utah? I`m so glad you`re mouth is starting to feel better, I hope you get feeling 100% soon. That’s still so hard for me to believe that schools out, I miss summer! Summer here means lots and lots of rain, and it’s definitely been that way this week. On Saturday night it rained harder than I’ve ever seen in my life, and we happened to be quite a long way away from our house when it really started. We decided to just go running through it instead of waiting and we were honestly the only people in the streets, I’m sure everybody else was just thinking "crazy Mormons". We got super super soaked, actually I think I would have been drier if I would have just jumped into a swimming pool. It was really cool though when we were on the way to an appointment during the crazy rain storm a lady stopped by in a car and gave us a ride. She wasn`t even a member but has 2 kids that are members in another ward. She was super nice and gave us a towel and an umbrella. It was such a tender mercy of the Lord to have her pass by us at that time. So this week we didn’t have a baptism for the first time in 8 weeks, it was kind of sad. We`ve really been spoiled with having baptisms every week and it was weird this week to not have one. We worked super super hard though, and we`ll be having 2 baptisms on Sunday and then the Saturday after that as well. The kids that we`re teaching right now that are supposed to get baptized next Saturday are really cool. They lived in Texas with their dad before but now they live with their grandma and have been here in Mexico only since January. I was on divisions with another gringo Saturday morning and we gave them a tour of the church in English. It was so weird and incredibly hard for me to do. They speak Spanish perfectly too so I think I’m just going to speak that to them. It’s so much easier for me to talk about the Gospel and everything else in Spanish than in English. Mom, I hope you have a great week. Time is honestly going by so so fast I can’t believe it. Thanks for sending all the pics of everybody and for always writing me and keeping me updated with everything. I love you and hope you have a great week and get feeling better! Love Elder Johnson
