Hey Guys!


It's official, I am in my last change in my 5th and final area of the mission. My companion, Elder Flores, arrives tomorrow. Elder Cáceres is going to Xalapa with a good friend of mine. I have 6 weeks to make the absolute most of every minute I have to build God's kingdom!

It's been a great week. We were running around fixing up the new house of prayer, which is actually very old because the original owner was a general in the Mexican revolution. We repainted, stained some doors, and everything. We sent 14 members to the temple on Saturday, and when they got back a handful of them stuck around to help us clean.

I also have a little story. If you remember the families that we baptized a couple of months ago, you might remember a 14 year old boy named Octavio. He's a little bit wild, but I get along really well with him and he goes to church EVERY SUNDAY even if his parents can't make it. He got home late because he was helping paint some doors in the house of prayer after the temple trip, and the branch president asked his mom to forgive them.

His mom said that there was no problem, that she was just happy that her son had been able to live his dream. She said that every night since we had left him a picture of the temple, that he had kept it under his pillow, and was waiting for the day that he would be able to go to the temple.

Yeah, it was a good week.

Lots of love,

Elder Wadman
