Transfer 13 Week 4 July 20, 2015

So we had another really good week here in Saltillo. On Wednesday we had a multi-zone conference with all of the missionaries in Saltillo. Because one of the Seventy came to the mission. Actually he is teh area president of Mexico, and his name is Elder Pieper.

It was a really good conference. We learned a lot! It was really cool because he shared us some experiences from his mission and his first area was in saltillo! but when he was here, there was only one ward and four missionaries in the entire city! now there are three stakes and about 70 or so missionaries. So the church here has definitely grown a lot! 

So we have been teaching a less active famlily for a while about a month now. And they have been progressing really well. And yesterday there 8-year-old son was baptized. It was a really great baptism and he asked me to baptize him! I will send some pictures next week. His name is Julio. 

We also have an investigator named Carlos. He is doing really well, and i am sure that he is going to be baptized within the next two months, but unfortunately i will most likely be changed before his baptism because we have changes in two weeks and i have been in this area for quite a while. 

Yesterday my companion and i were talking and i spotted something on his shoulder. I wasnt sure what it was but then i realized that it was a giant cockroach! I tried staying calm, but there is something about giant cockroaches that makes you just forget all reason and freak out! so i kind of yelled at him, which mad him scream, brush the cockroach off, and stomp on it about 10 times. It wasnt super graceful but the job got done nonetheless. We were laughing for about 10 minutes after that.

Well that´s all folks
Elder Earl
