Well today is my 11 months y I’m in a new area. I’m now in Tuxtla Airport area y my companion is Elder Estrada. He is from Guatemala y he has almost one year on his mission.
Well I left Comitan very good for Elder Merrill y his new companion. We have 4 investigators con baptism dates. Carlos Flores, who on Tuesday we were walking right in front of his house y he walked right out y so we contacted him y he invited us in. He said he was ready to get baptized 4 years ago but he had to move y he couldn’t find the church so we put a date for 5 September y he visited church yesterday also. We are so so happy.
Then Pablo y Ester are new investigators who we visit the last Sunday y they visited church also y they liked it. Their date to get baptized is on the 19th of September y David has a dater for the 29th of this month. We are trying to work on his mom to give us permission. So we had 4 in church yesterday y 4 with dates.

On Thursday we went with the president y like 46 missionaries to visit Chiflon waterfall. It was hot y beautiful y I saw Elder Mena y Laural, my companions, again.
Then on Saturday we had a talent show where members did different acts. It was so cool y everybody loved it. We even had less actives y investigators there.
Well yesterday I said bye to a lot of members y a lot gave me candy y gave me luck. I left Comitan at 10 y got here at 2. It was a long bus ride y Antonio gave us a ride to the bus station. I’m sad that I’m no more in Comitan. I loved the members y the area y the weather. But now I’m on a new adventure.
Love you all y thanks for total.
Hi Mom. Sorry it is so late. I got exchanged to Tuxtla. My new area is Tuxtla Airport. I love you. It is about 10 min away from the temple and mission home, but it is hot. I’m sweating like crazy here. It is a little sad. My new companion has the same time out as I do y I’m still the little (junior) companion. Still I’m bit sad about that. He thinks I don’t understand anything so he repeats everything, but he is good. But our house is dirty y smelly y not beautiful like the one in Comitan. But it is the mission, so it is fine. I know it is just hard to change areas.
Can you send me just some ties so I can give them to my companions when they leave or when I do? That is it. Love you.
Thanks Mom. Love you. I’m happy you found the snake. Hey can you print off my recent letters y some photos y send it in the post office to Joy y write I love her y miss her y pray for her? Thanks.
I’ve got to go. I love you. Say hi to all!
Thanks Mom for everything.
