My shoes are dead in the water, pretty much every pair I`ve gt gives me some sort of blister but I haven`t had time to go look for new ones, they`re also all falling apart except my brown ones. Today we went to the Pyramids here in Cholula which was really cool. Choula is sort of touristy and we went to a super awesome little store today that had a bunch of awesome tee shirts and super cool vintagey lightbulbs which I loved but I couldn`t take pictures of. I`m trying to be better about talking pictures, I promise. While we were in Cholula we ran into some Hermanas from the mission Norte (Puebla north mission) and it was SUPER weird because they were using normal clothes and from the north mission we`re not suppose to leave mission limits....I think their mission president is a little more laid back then President Stellmon.
For my birthday I only have one request, scripture cases that are seperated (if that makes any sense) like one for my book of mormon (standard size, or big idk for my spanish scriptures) and a seperate one for my bible so they`re not always together, I think it would help distribute the weight a little better in by bag. Also, more stickers because I like stickers aaaaaaaaaaaand I think that`s all. I need a new camera :( something happened with mine with the screen and whatever but it would be easier if you just sent me money or put more money in my account so I can buy one here.
I`m pretty much resigned to just having my back hurt all the time honestly.
The Elders are super `dead` as they say in the mission. Elder Castillo wants to go home but president won`t let him. He only has three months left or something like that, but even the members can tell he`s DONE being a missionary. It`s the WORST. I hope I`m not like that when I`ve only got three months left. Also we got in trouble so he hasn`t called since. Oh, and you`re right transfers are going to be on the thirteenth it`s our BAPTISM thatps on the eleventh!
If everything goes according to plan we`re going to baptize a little girl named Abril (or april) on the eleventh. She`s nine years old and her mom is super inactive, but april has been going to the nieghborring ward la joya for a long time with her aunt but she didn`t get baptized. Her mom is super nice and is a really good person and still prays and everything and I didn`t understand why she was inactive really but she does have a job where she works everyand they don`t let anyone have it off. She works in a nursing home.
It`s also raining like cats and dogs pretty much every day now. But only in the evening around six or seven, and during the day it`s still super hot. thank you mexico.
Still haven`t seen Juan for basically this whole cambio. Just one time, and nothing after that. Also I have a freaking ZIT THE SIZE OF POPO more like three. Hna chauque says it`s the food here, because she has a ton of zits too and before she got to this area she didn`t have anything.
Also an investiagtor named Magdalena made us find our houses on google maps so she could see what our towns are like and it was SO WEIRD. I could see the black jeep from the road and a little bit of the house from google maps and i `drove` down the lane to see the barn and everything i showed her and hermana chauque around joseph and monroe and elisinore so that they could see where i went to school and church and everything and i walked out of that teaching apointment feeling like `wow, I`m actually in Mexico....that`s a thing` sometimes I forget honestly where I am.
But that`s all I got, I think. Love you miss you like crazy but I`ll be home before you kow it!

|championes or GRASSHOPPERS which are a popular snack at this time of year|
|Giant Catholic church on top of the pyramids|
|A subway that inside is nicer than pretty much any establishment I have seen yet so far. McDonalds and Subway and such are SUPER nice and expensive|
