Well We just got back from the Temple! Its still closed but they have a really cool Visitor Center we got to walk around and tour. It was also nice to just be able to leave the CCM. By the way the Temple is just like the CCM, a little oaisis in the middle of a dirty, busy city. Pictures to follow!
|The Mexico City Temple is the largest temple outside of the US |
and only one of 5 that have Moroni holding the plates.

Look at his face! ☺
|I told him... it looks good! It'll grow back... He just looks like he's 10 years old again!|
Oh yea, General Conference! It was good, we watched it in english. I liked Sunday's sessions the most probably. I started taking notes but I figured I would just buy the conference edition of the Ensign when it comes out and just focus on listening.

(we got to watch Music In The Spoken Word, but not the inbetween stuff)

The other cool thing this week was teaching our "investigators." The one is our teacher but his profile is actually him before he joined the church. Hes been a tough egg to crack, always asking hard questions about us v.s. other religions and stuff. This week he asked we he shouldnt just get baptized when hes old, so he can keep doing the things he likes now. Grandpa Westerhoffs conversion popped into my head, gave him a quick rundown of it, felt the spirit and BAM, he said he would be baptized. The Hermanas that also teach him were way surprised (well so were we) because hes been way hard and saying he just wants to learn about religions. So that was cool. Our other investigator on the other hand is a addicted to the "drogas" and alcohol and is most likely pregnant. So thats a doozy. (these are real people by the way, theyre just played by the missionaries who taught or are related to them aka our teachers)
That activity at church looked awesome! Wish I was there! (See the blog post earlier today to see the Good Friday activity we had at church! It was awesome.)
Bummer about Wisconsin, didnt even know they made the finals!
Miss those cats. Oh and scott too I guess... just kidding! Looks like you guys are doing and getting all the fun stuff with out me, as usual lol. (I had emailed him a bunch of pictures of Scott and cats - and told him about ordering our new furniture.)
Well thats about everything for this week! Love yall!
Love you muchos!!! <3 <3 <3

|Immediately after stading up from taking that first picture, one of the Mexican worker guys was standing behind me and said "Good?" I said yea, then he immediately smashed it.|
