Well, we had a productive week this week. We were able to bring two new people to church this week, which was awesome! Their names are Eusebio and Teresa, and they have three wonderful little girls. They loved church and accepted a baptismal date! I hope they continue to progress. Mariana and Fidel also came to church. If all goes well, they will get married this week and we will be able to have Mariana's baptism this week. As always, I ask you to keep them in your prayers, as they need many.

Well, we're getting ready to start Dia de los Muertos here in Mexico. All over people are buying flowers to put on the graves and the alters of their dead ancestors. Here soon they all will come back as spirits to eat some treats that are placed on their alters and have a fun time being back on Earth another little while. Maybe we'll even get to teach them the gospel...I guess we'll see! Pictures next week, seeing as they all just started decorating today. There is also a lot of "Bread of the Dead," which is very yummy, especially with some milk, which is good for the ol' bones.

This week was "EAT SOME BUGS" week for Elder Hille and I. At the start of the week, we helped a family in our branch make some salsa with worms in it. The worms are called chiniquiles and live under the agave plant. It's the time of year to catch and eat them, so we did. They make a fine taco after being toasted and salted, with some avocado and chilies. At the end of the week we ate some good grasshoppers, that were made by a lady in our ward. You just toast them up and eat them like popcorn. Those were pretty good, and we took some home to eat later. Yes, you eat them legs and all. Crunchy, yet satisfying.

I love you all!
