November 12, 2012 letter

Dear Family,

The big news this week is that I got a new companion.  Elder Moreno went to Merida to get a root canal.  Its a lot cheaper there than in Cancun.  Elder Rivera came in his place.  He´s from Puebla, Mexico, but has been living with his family in England for the last 4 or 5 years, so he speaks English.  I´m sure he and Cuddles would be great friends.  He came over with the same group as Elder Velasco and Elder Moreno.  He was the one that I wanted to train, but its nice that I´ll get to finish with him.  His first area was in Palmas 1, so he already knows the ward. 

This week we will have a baptism.  Our investigator Gabriel showed up to church at the end of the last transfer.  He had listened to the missionaries a while back, but didn´t want to get baptized.  Now he is ready.  Next week we should have 1 or 2 more baptisms. 

It's too bad you can't bring pomegranite jelly.  I´m sure the people would like it.  Could you check on jerky?  They took mine away in the Mexico city airport, but I think they just wanted to eat it.  Can you also find out if I can take my pocket knife on the return flight?  I think it would be fine if we put it in the suitcase and declare it.  Could you also ask if it's o.k. to bring a machete?

A member gave me an interesting talk by Alvin R. Dyer.  Do you know who that is?  Could you let me know?  It was given to missionaries in Norway in 1981.  

Can you set up a dentist appointment for when I get back.  Could you also bring an 8x10 or larger picture frame with you.  I want to put in a couple of pictures of me and Spencer Gubler and give it to President Salinas.  Or, if you can find a set of 3 or 4 stuck together for a 4x6, like what we have at the beach house, that would be better.

Thank you for signing me up for classes.  I´ll just keep them all and make adjustments in my first week.  Can you find out about housing.  I´d like to be an RA, preferably for the new dorms, but I´ll take whatever is available. 

Elder Gubler
