Feb 3rd Transfered to Victoria

Wow, that month went by really fast...

Good news and bad news! I got transfered! It's good and bad at the same time... Good because change is good and gives me an opportunity to be in a new area and new companion, so it's all good :) 

Anyways.... The bad news is, (it's actually something really good but I am a little sad because I won't be there... ;) ) Monica (or Carolina) the friend of Monica (por eso le decimos Carolina) received her answer to her prayers! She has been listening to us and was asking if she should get baptized and all that and... well she had a dream... In her dream she ran into some old friends and they were asking her what had been going on in her life and she told them she was Mormon! She was also married in her dream (she isn't married right now by the way) and really happy. She said that it seemed the the dream was  like one year in the future and that she wants to get baptized! She had accepted the invitation before but it wasn't ever very sure... but when we talked to her she asked us "hey, can I get baptized on March 3rd?" dijimos que sí... :) she was really really excited and she went to church on Sunday and everything! she seemed kinda bugged the whole time and later we talked to her friend and she said that Carolina really liked the whole experience but... she was hungry ;) so that's why she looked kinda mad.... ha ha but really... she is excited to get baptized and everything.  She has already read up until 3 Nefi! it is so great :) and she bought us nachos and gave us cup cakes... :) they were delish!

Well that's a little bit of what happened last week. We weren't able to get Anatolio or Abraham to church but I really think they will get baptized here in the next few changes :)

Ok, now a little about transfers, I am now in Victoria (that's the city). Victoria is the capital of Tamaulipas. Everybody talks about it like it's la Tierra Prometida ha ha :) they say the members here are great and always help and stuff like that so we will see what happens.  Also, supposedly the people here have more money... They say they are más fresa here. I am in the ward Libertad with elder Naylor. He is from Utah. Actually he is from Kaysville and kinda knows Rachel from elementary school, how crazy is that?  He is from the same generation as Elder Porter... my companion from two changes ago.  I will send some pics the next time if possible :) 

Wow, it is cold here... but good news (that's right more news!!) I got one of the Christmas packages! The one with the vacuum-packed sweaters and the socks, the really sweet tie and the pocket knife con ganas!! Thanks!  Last night I was looking for something that needed fixing because it has so many tools! ha ha it's great :) I was expecting something a little smaller but it's all good! It just surprised me with it's hefty-ness :)

Well that's all I've got for now :)  I love y'all :)
