"Wherefore, ye must press forward with a steadfastness in Christ, having a perfect brightness of hope, and a love of God and of all men. Wherefore, if ye shall press forward, feasting upon the word of Christ, and endure to the end, behold, thus saith the Father: Ye shall have eternal life." 2 Nephi 31:20

"Be Not Afraid, Only Believe" Mark 5:36

This week we had a special conference with President Morales. He is very different, but it is good. He is a big promoter of English. It's nice, but even rough on us gringos. He had us recite the normal things (D&C 4, The Missionary Purpose) but then he had us all recite them in English. So there I was trying to translate from Spanish to English as fast as I could. It's really going to be rough on the Mexicans now that they can't slide by faking English, because the whole meeting was in English!

Anyway, this week we got hit by transfers. Nearly the whole Zone here in Gaviotas is on its way out. I'm headed to Minatitlan, Veracruz tomorrow morning. It will be my third area and third state in Mexico: Campeche, Tabasco, and now Veracruz.

Anyway, I'm sorry to be short, but there are a lot of things to tie up here in the area before I head out. I'm tell you all more in the weeks to come. So, just enjoy the thought shared by Sister Morales:

"Be Not Afraid, Only Believe" Mark 5:36

Take care,
