Today has already been a really fun day! We decided to go take the bell tower tour (recommended by President Stutznegger) in the 500 year old catholic cathedral down in the center of the city. It was interesting. We got to walk up some really cool spiral stone stair cases, and then when we finally got up on top of the roof, we got to walk around and take pictures and stuff! It was pretty sweet! Sister Stutznegger told us that from the top, you can see the mexican city temple, but it was a pretty hazy day.
Also, we had quite a few investigators come to church with us on sunday! We are hoping to baptize guadelupe's family this saturday, but first we are going to have a wedding in the morning!!!! Should be exciting!!!! Our ward mission leader brought his dad to church and he has been taking some interest in the gospel, and we also are working with an incredible woman named Prisila.
So it was getting kinda late, and we decided to knock on the doors of the people that were obviously home on that street. We almost get down to the end of the street, and we decided to knock on another door. We knock, hear "it's the mormons" from inside the house, and then a 30-35 year old worman (prisila) walks out, opens the door, and tells us to come on in. She told us that she had asked the elders to come visit her over a year ago and they never went.... but we got there!!!! She said that she was looking for a church and then she remembered her friend Ingrid. She said she looked that she had a stable, nice life and that she was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day saints! THANK YOU INGRID! So we have been teaching her, and she has accepted the baptismal date for the 4th of July!!! Great way to celebrate independence day! From sin! haha
Well, other than that, we've just been having fun and working hard. The mission is going great, but I can't believe that here in a week or 2 I will be going into my last cycle. But life is good, and it only gets better! I hope you all know that I love you and the lord loves you! May he bless you in this upcoming week! The church is true! If it weren't, I wouldn't have come down to mexico for 2 years!
Have an excellent week!
Also we were in luck!!!!! We ran into a world fair in the middle of the city! Got to go see tons of different people from all over the world sharing a little bit of their culture! Pretty awesome!
This is a wooden staircase at the top of the bell tower! Each beam is one piece of solid wood! It is over 200 years old!These are the pictures that we took TODAY! We went into a 500 year old catholic cathedral and we went on a tour of the bell tower. They have tons of bells and really cool staircases. It was kinda weird being in a catholic cathedral taking a tour while there were church services, but it was also a really cool tour.
This is the familia Macedo! They are such an incredible family and probably one of my favorites! They are just so great! They gave us those hats that we have on! They say "MEXICO" on them!
