Hey what's up friends and fam! Sorry for not writing a lot lately, but I got a lot to catch y'all up on. So I'm just going to get down to the nitty gritty.
A couple weeks ago my companion/kid Elder Santillan had to go home for some family things. So sadly we weren't together that long, but they were short and very fullfilling moments we had, and I hope to train again soon!
So now I'm with my first gringo companion, Elder Hodson, and he's the freshest piece of baked bread you'll ever want to eat in your whole life. We get along really well and he motivates me to go to the gym every morning at 6. He's from Las Vegas and knows the lead singer of Imagine Dragons, so that's dope.
We've been teaching a bunch of cool people and hopefully we can get this area baptizing in a couple of weeks because it has been a drought here for the last couple of months.
Also health update. Don't get freaked out anyone. But I think I may have zika ... or just an allergic reaction. Woke up on Sunday with a bunch of red dots all over my body, like I had some sort of rash but that doesn't itch. Any ways that and a fever kept me in bed for a while, but its really not that bad I should be back in A shape in just a few days.
We also went on a hiking trip and found some pyramids that were on some guy's property. That's Mexico, people have ancient Mayan structures in there backyard. Hahaha. We took some pictures and it was great! Hope you all enjoy them.
It came to the truths this week that I only have 6 months left, which is extremely mind boggling and sad. I'm on the last home stretch and I have to take advantage of every moment.
I love this work and I love being a missionary for my Lord and Savior. He is the reason I came here to save lives. I love Him so much and I love His gospel and I love His church and the leaders He has chosen to guide it. He lives and reigns forever!
I love you guys, and I as always thank for your prayers and supports!
Here's some pictures!

My area is really big and green
