so this is our awesome picture that was after we had our baptism this week of this kid named abraham who satan was just trying to destroy. we didnt even get the sighnature or aproval from his mom until an hour before church. freaking miracle. so we ate campachanas and coke after and partied hahah what up. hight five. this is my comp elder wakefield btw. pretty chill. wake is almost the same as the word for ox in spanish. buey and free. just add a to to the end. frito. so we go by ox and to. (pronounced tow) ha and we call it oxto fruit co....... worldwide.... wide wide wide.

anyway.... hahah so ya we have definately seen the blessings here its been great. weve had six baptisms this month and ive had nine in this are total. tell grandma that i get all her hand written letters and thank you a ton they are amazing. tell abby and tyler congrats thats so cool they are gonna be sealed. i love the temple. still havent gone here though which is pretty sad. man i cant wait to see elder jolly again i gotta give that chap a hug. hes the funniest kid i know. i think that mexico is a completely diffent type of mission than others. they are all different but mexico especially. the corruptoin in this area is so great. everyone is living with people that they arent married to. kids at 14. drugs. gangs. its outta this world. it just makes it awesome to see people get baptised and become members. still no packages haha

anyway gotta run. love you all and thanks for all you do for me hhave done and continue to do. love you

love nate

hey mom and family. ha

this week has been ok. just working hard.

we have three baptisms in the next two weeks and three more the two weeks after that. it’ll be sweet. a lady named Mariana. and then a kid named Hugo and his mom marie. they’re way sweet.

recently ive decided that Mexico was made for short people. first cuz everyone is short but also everything is short. the ceilings, the trees, the doorways. but ive lost about 20 lbs i think since being here at least. haven’t measured of lately. but yesterday got attacked by a five inch cockroach. no joke. this thing was huge. ill have to send the pic. we have tons of them. its still insanely hot but the canicula is supposed to end the 24th so hope it’ll cool down. November and December it just gets freezing hear apparently. im super excited. ha-ha.
