Hey friends and family!
So we had transfers this week and GUESS WHAT!!!!
Nothing happened! Almost nothing! Only one sister left the zone because her companion is training a new sister! We are all really excited we get to stay together another cycle! So that means I am going to be another cycle with Elder Pérez!
So fun news! In my first area we found a less-active family and they had an AWESOME son named Victor that baptized his niece right after I left...well, he´s going on a mission! He emailed me last week and he is heading the the Mexico Torreón mission! WAHOO!! I am super excited for him!

On Friday we had a ward Family Home Evening and it was great! A couple weeks ago we found a family of 25 ish and about half of them are members, the other half are kids, about 6 or 7 of them aren't members yet because their family went less-active 11 years ago...well we got like half of them to the Family Home Evening! There are so many kids in that house. Like so many. And I made the mistake of showing them the magic trick my Dad would always do where he makes his ring disappear and they all think I´m magic so I have to do lots of magic every time I go...By the way, thanks for that magic trick dad! I have baffled many, young and old!
Okay so the latest news is I thing I MAY be part Mexican. Like lineage. I realized that while we were eating on Sunday with a family and we were talking about how Utah was part of Mexico for a while when the saints arrived...I think 2 years? I didn't pay too much attention in History class but I think the whole Guadalupe Hidalgo thing went down like 1848 or something just a couple short years after the Saints got there...well the things is I don´t know if my ancestors that were pioneers were born between 1846 and 1848 but now I´m REALLY curious because if so I´m gonna start telling everyone, "No I´m from the U.S. but my great, great, great grandparents are from Mexico!" I actually told that to a drunk guy yesterday and he thought that was pretty neat...I hope I wasn't lying! Okay maybe none of my ancestors were born there but they at least lived there so I can say my ancestors moved to Mexico and they never moved away again...There it is! Braedon, there´s your homework get back to me!
Well today was a good day! We went to Sam´s club and bought some food and ate a Dominos Pizza, so all is well!
I love you all so much! Have a GREAT week!
P.S. If you look closely (at the picture below) you will notice Greg Olsen´s work of John baptizing Jesus on the store´s banner. (It is fun to see LDS) Gospel Art printed out (usually heavily distorted size wise, etc.), (posted) on a random store with food, milk, snacks, etc. HAHA #MexicanMoment
