All goes well in Tuxtla everybody! Working hard in Real de Bosque. Guess what? We had a baptism this saturday! It snuck up on us. We invited him tuesday, and he got baptized on Saturday. I will send a picture of him. His name is Jesus Francisco Gordillo CaƱas. He is 28 years old, and his wife is a member. She couldn't come to the baptism because she just had a baby, and is resting in her parent's home which is 3 hours away. Other things of the week. Well, Adriana finally accepted being baptized this coming week. Sergio's mom said that he could be baptized this week. And a kid that just turned 18 can get baptized this week as well, as his parents can no longer say no. Adriana's testimony has come a long way, and she now diffends her new religion, fighting against the lies of her catholic aunts and parents. 

The rainy season (which lasts a few months) is coming quickly. I Think it will be here in a few weeks, maybe less. One bad thing though, it smells really bad here, as people dump sewer water in the streets. We have a rat living in the area that we wash our clothes as well. He is the size of a chihuahua.

So all is good here, and it is really hot. A member served us some illegal food from the black market, and it was really gross. I felt bad afterword, because I have seen videos on the discovery channel about how people steal this stuff and it is causing them to go extinct. And... I ate... Turtle eggs that were raw! Yuck! They pop a hole in the top, put habenero sauce on top, some salt, and lemon, and then suck it down. Gross!

Love you All,
Elder Norris
