Week 16 - The coolest fast Sunday ever!


This week, we had another junta de zona. It was great. I always love to see all the other missionaries that are serving in our zone and alot of the missionaries that were from my generation in the CCM. Also it was funny to see them lugging this huge suitcase that was full of Libros de Mormón for our zona. But we learned alot about how we need to use our ward mission leader and members of the ward to help us find and teach and help our investigators feel comfortable in the church.

Yesterday was fast sunday and it was honestly the coolest one ever. First off Carlitos was confirmed a member de la Iglesia de los Santos de los Últimos Días by his dad and it was so awesome to be a part of it. Next, all of the stake presidents in our mission were meeting that day so they were attending our sacrament meeting and our mission president was there too. Then to add to that I didn't realize this till after, but there was a member of the 70 of Mexico who was presiding at the meeting. So it was so awesome to hear everyone share their testimonies most of which were about how they know that prayers are answered by seeing the baptism of Carlos. And then at the end, one person got up who we had never seen before and she bore her testimony of how she felt the same as Carlos to know that she needed to be baptized. She felt the same way that after the missionaries left her house she tried to run and find them to tell them that she wanted to be baptized. She said that she has been less active for many years and this meeting reminded her so much of the love our Heavenly Father has for each and every one of us. Then the member of the 70 got up and started saying "Brothers and Sisters, we have witnessed a miracle today..." and talked about everything that happened in the meeting. It was super cool and the spirit was so strong in the room. 

So Sunday afternoon Elder Lowry went to Cuidad Obregón to renew his visa along with all the other american missionaries in his generation. So I spent the night and today with the Elders in Barrio Central. It was really cool to see their house and how it is much bigger than ours, but also to go to a different area even if it is across the street from us. And it is really funny because all the missionaries ask each other what they do on Pday because everyone is looking for something fun to do. It is really funny when we read the mission handbook and read about things you can do on Pday like go to a zoo or a museum. We always just laugh because there is nothing like that here. So we usually just stay in the house and study and read the Liahona. It sounds kind of boring, but I really like having the opportunity to read the messages that we recieve every month from our church leaders. But when we find something cool to do, I will let you know, but for now all we do is study and buy food for the week. 

Love you all so much and I hope that everything is great at home. 
Con Amor
Elder Snyder

p.s. Mom, I still haven't gotten my package because there were so many packages for our zone that the zone leaders could not bring them all back, but I think Elder Lowry is going to try and bring them back today.
