Mexico Pachuca - Week 71 - March 23, 2015

Mexico Pachuca Letter #71 – March 23, 2015
(Excerpts from his email)

sorry i don’t have a lot of time to talk today we had a zone activity so i don’t have a lot of time to write but the week went good. we had the baptism of Abi and it was all good. also today we had a chili habanero eating contest and i won haha. but i also almost died

M: I'm glad Abi was finally able to be married and baptized. 

Why do you keep eating things that will make you die!  You are a Kitashima through and through, win at all cost!!

So a story please before you go.

: um story of the week. we had another activity on Friday and the kids were playing soccer. a little boy came for the first time with his grandma and he’s like 4. he was standing next to the goal and he gets absolutely drilled in the face with the ball. i was like o my gosh this cannot be happening. he like freezes for a moment and then just starts screaming and blood just starts streaming out of his nose. i was just like crap that is not good. i grab him and carry him but he gets blood all over my white shirt. i sit him down on my lap and start squeezing his nose with my hand and yell at my companion to go get paper towels. we finally get the blood to stop and he finally calms down but i have blood everywhere. and he does too. so we clean him up and he goes and starts playing with the other kids and when his grandma wanted to go he didn’t want to. but the best part is the sister missionaries came and asked why i was all bloody and i was like o some guys jumped us and started hitting me and we started fighting and all that. and apparently someone from another ward heard so on Sunday the missionaries from that ward came up and were like o my gosh what happened we heard you guys got beat up and were all bloody and blah blah blah. 
M: So I guess he was not traumatized for life!  And since he didn’t want to leave he enjoyed himself and so that is good.  Sounds like something that happened to you at the beginning of your mission?!?!?!

You better watch out, rumors spread quickly and then what are you gonna do.

How are your recent baptism people doing, any new investigators?

EP: haha nah it was just a joke. this week we had 6 people in the church. one is Uriel. he’s 9 and his family is getting active in the church well his mom. his sister is active and his mom is starting again with him but his dad doesn’t want to. we had two other boys angel and Edgar. they are both 11 and also children of inactives. we got them to church this Sunday and they like it. they love coming on Fridays to play soccer. and the best we got a great new family. the mom Guadalupe, her two sons, Bryan and Javier, and the daughter Rosa. they are super awesome. Bryan has a friend who is a member and he invited him to play on Fridays. he loves it and is super excited we went to his house and he put on a white shirt and tie to be like us haha. his mom is excited because her sons like it and she wants them to be ok. so they are looking really good. 

M: that is super awesome son, you have so many that have waited for you.  Very cool.  Is that Abi, what's her husbands name?

EP: Abi and Luis. ya things are going good here right now.  I’m pretty excited i just hope i don’t have changes. 

M: When are changes?  I know you will be where the Lord needs you most!  

EP: one week. i have at least one more week here. gotta go though. have a great week. a great spring break. love you guys.

Buenas tardes Presidente,
Este semana fue algo loca pero al después de todo muy buena. Tuvimos días bien estresantes pero también tuvimos 2 bautismos y aseguramos otro para mañana. Este semana la hermana Blanca Estela se bautizo. La contacte en la calle en mis primeras semanas aquí. Desde el principio ha sido muy especial pero por algunas cosas y algunos problemas no se bautizo hasta ahorita. Su bautismo fue muy especial y compartio su testimonio tan sencillo pero con todo su corazon. Dijo que no sabia como expresar sus sentimientos pero se sentia tan feliz como nunca jamas en la vida. Sus hijas tambien pudieron venir y eso fue otro milagro. Los trabajos de sus hijas se acomodaron perfectamente para poder estar alla y su mama les invito a seguir su pasos y los pasos de nuestro Padre Celestial para que puedan seguir adelante juntas. Fue muy especial y pude sentir el espiritu tan fuerte escuchando su testimonio. Me senti tan feliz y contento que por abrir mi boca con una hermana en la calle pudimos llegar juntos a este punto en su vida. No ha sido muy facil para mi hablar con todos pero realmente me he esforzado mucho y pude ver los frutos este dia.....
Muchísimas gracias por todo presidente,
Con amor

Elder P
