From 11 October 2016

adventures in the cold

This week.  We went on SO MANY adventures.  It was great!

the park is called "crocodiles"
Hermana Bracamonte and I are working all kinds of hard here in Hidalgo, and we are determined to preach the gospel to ALL of the people.  We´ve been knocking on doors, talking to people in the street, making apointments, teaching the gospel, praying, fasting, smiling, waving, studying, aaaaannnnnddddd laughing.  Lots and lots of laughing.  You see, if you take life too seriously (even as a missionary) you will go CRAZY.  So it´s better to laugh.

how we feel about apostasy

Then, on Pday, after working hard all week, we PLAY hard (aka, go sight-seeing and visit all the places we can).  This week we visited the Basilica, and we ate at a tasty restaurant named "Huarachín Huarachón".  MMMmmmmmmmm good.  We´also celebrated Hermana Bracamonte´s year-mark by buying ice cream!  Anyway, you can check out the pictures for more details!

Ok. Spiritual thought today comes from the book of Luke, chapter 2.  This is a pretty famous chapter, where Christ is born, and wise men and shepherds come to see him, etc.  One of my very favorite parts of this whole thing is a little line about Mary, who "kept all these things in her heart and pondered them".  I think that sometimes when big, wonderful things (or little things) happen in our lives, we get excited, they happen, they´re over, and then we forget them.  But I think with things like General Conference, or other experiences during the week, we can remember this very important lesson from Mary, and keep these things in our heart to meditate.  I invite you all to do it, and to have a fantastic week meditating!

Lots of love,
Hermana Houghton
