Elder Abarca goes home first week of October. He's 21 and is from Morelos, about 2 hours south of Mexico City. We have been getting tons of investigators. The people here are a lot more accepting. We have a baptism planned for Thursday. We have 1 other investigator that went to church on Sunday, but we`ll see what happens with her. I haven`t been to any of the English classes yet. I don´t even know if anybody goes. I don`t know which other Elders have Costco cards. Mine doesn`t work here because they have a different system, but they said I can get a guest pass when I come. There´s a member that took us to Sam`s Club. I'm still using the magic tricks. The kids in the ward really like them and are always soliciting. We have been bathing with buckets since I`ve gotten here. All of the houses have an outside water source that they can use. We get about 1500 pesos a month, the equivilant of about $140. Of that, we can spend 600 for food, 300 in transport, and 600 for cleaning and bathing supplies. I weighed myself 2 weeks ago. I'm down to 163, 28 lbs. more than mom. I was about 188 in the MTC. The food in Kanasin is a lot better, and my face doesn`t look as thin now. Sorry I have to go. We lost a lot of time today. I`ll send a longer letter next week.
