¡Feliz Pascua!

Happy Easter Everyone!

It`s pretty wet today, it`s been raining for about 8 hours now. I hope everyone had a good Easter weekend and that everyone is doing good.

Easter was pretty cool to see here in Mexico, there are a lot of different celebrations and traditions that the people do here to remember Jesus Christ. The celebrations went on for about a week. The majority of the people here are Catholic, we got to see them parade around our area as they did cool native dances and dressed up in native clothing. The whole week is called Semana Santa, Friday is the day when Christ made his sacrifice and payed for our sins and errors. Nobody works, all the stores are closed, and everyone is in church. It was a petty cool experience to see the peoples traditions here.

This coming weekend, we are going to listen to the Prophet and our church leaders. More than 2000 years ago, King Benjamin in the Book of Mormon organized his people to share the message of the Atonement of Jesus Christ. The story of King Benjamin is our first General Conference that we have on record. The multitude of all the people was so large that they built a tower and wrote all the word of King Benjamin so the people could receive the revelation that Christ will be born, die for us, and make it possible for us to repent if we come unto him. Mosiah 3, 4, and 5. Christ put the order for us, as we follow his example, he will bless and forgive us. He will never reject us. Thanks to Him, we will have the opportunity to live with him and our families forever!

¡Tengan un buen semana!
