Im finally in Puebla! I havent really had a chance to send out a group email in a little while so here it goes. Im really close to a city called Nealtican east of Puebla. And Im in a little pueblo called Huejotzingo. Here they speak a dialect of spanish called Nahuatl. Our area is as close as you can get to the volcano here in puebla! You can see the volcano really well here and it errupts about every couple days but it hasn´t errupted really bad in a little while.
My new companion is Elder Conrad! And yes he is an American! Hes from Sandy Utah and he has a little over a year on the mission. Today was actually his birthday and he turned 21. Hes a way awesome dude and we do really well together. We live in this really nice apartment together and its sweet! Our appartment in way nicer than any of the other elders and sisters because ours is rented from a member so we get a really good deal on it. Every day we eat the afternoon meal with member and I hevent had anything crazy yet. But this morning for breakfast, me and Elder Conrad went to a little tienda and bought some yogurt for his birthday and brought it to our casa. It looked a little funny, tasted a little funny, and smelt a little funny, but we ate it anyway because we paid a good ammount of pesos on it. And we are suffering because of it hahahaha.
There are a good amount of members and we have a pretty good member support for the missionary work. A lot of the members are willing to help us out quite a bit and a couple of them want to be our best friends. And the members absolutely love us! They will feed us till we are bursting at the seems and give us some more.
Our area is awesome and there is a lot of good potential for us here in Huejotzingo. Everyone have a good week!
