I'll have his next one up asap.

this week started pretty normal... nothing to exciting happening. i knew i had to make the best of it though because it was the end of the transfer. 6 weeks went by super quick. we just worked and worked and are having some success finally. then thursday came along and we had our Zone Conference with Presidente Castañeda and things got interesting. the conference was very powerful and talked about the importance of working with members to solidify the testimonies of the investigators and also an all around work out of how to be a successful missionary and i learned a lot from it. it really recharged my batteries and now i am pumped to get back to work here in Acayucan... OH WAIT!!!!! president pulled me aside after the conference for an interview and after a few minutes of chatting about the work he informed me that i was going to get transfered. again. 6 weeks in Acayucan and im gone. we got the transfer information saturday and i am going to Frontera, Tabasco. its right on the southern part of the Gulf Coast. it should be pretty interesting to be practically surrounded by water. i am pretty excited to go father south. iu feel a little wierd that i am leaving veracruz but i am sure everything is gonna work out fine. i feel confident in the move. i know i was only here 6 weeks but there are a few families here that i am going to miss. i always find a way to get in close with a couple and never want to leave. haha.

today for our p-day activity we went to some Waterfalls that are about 1 hour from here. they were sweeeeeeeeeeeet. really secluded and super fun. i took a few videos and a bunch of fotos but the computer is not letting me up load so i cant send any of them off. sadly you will all have to wait until next week to see them. after that we washed the clothes and hung them out to dry and then went for haircuts and played some cards with a family that loves us. there is a card game version of monopoly that is awesome. i love it. its called monopoly deal or something but it is way addicting and we play a lot when we have time. mostly before bed and mondays. haha. and now sadly i am writing you all and about to get back to work. the time flies when you are distracted by everything you see. i swear my brain has turned to mush in mexico.

i love you all a ton. keep me updated on how life is and whats happening and i will do the same. the church is true and we should all think everyday in the gifts we have from our Father in Heaven. also in the covenants that we have made with him. i think that we are blessed to be who we are and to have eachother. you are all in my prayers.

happy halloweeeeeenn/Dia De Los Muertos.


con todo mi corazon,

Elder Elrey
