enfermo, boo

Hello y'all,

I feel like the letters have been pretty boring lately. Actually I feel like, in general, they're pretty boring... sorry to the poor soul that reads these every week. We would have been raising the dead and casting out demons and surviving Mexican gangster attacks and what not, but sadly I was sick the whole week so we didn't do much. I don't really know what happened, but 2 Sundays ago I felt super tired; all of my energy went on vacation, the next day was pday and I was feeling a little woozy so I spent the day resting. Then the next day I had a stomachache and a headache so we headed over to the doctor and told him that I had a stomach and headache and he told me that, I had a stomach and head infection. Oh wow, thanks for the analysis doc. Then he gave me some medicine, and on Thursday all the bad stuff left mi cuerpo and on Friday we were out working again... we'll see what happens this week. My companion told me that he felt bad in the morning, and has been resting to whole day.
But the good news is that on Saturday we had a baptism, boo yah. It was pretty awesome. Sister Sonia was baptized. She's a great lady that's had a lot of problems in her life but now thanks to the gospel everything is in order. She's the first member in her family, but here in a few weeks, her family should be baptized too. She's like a pioneer in her family. Thanks to her-many people are going to enjoy the blessings of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ.
This morning I woke up and realized that it's week 6, which means cambios this week. I cannot tell you how fast the time here has gone by, I was thinking it was week 2 but here we are finishing another transfer, It's hard to believe but in this next transfer I will complete 1 year in the mission, like zoinks, Scoobs.
Lets see, what else happened? Oh ya, on Friday we had a special meeting with presidente. It was pretty good. He showed this video of the omni project where one stake indexed 1 million names in 1 month, and then we put a goal to baptize 48 people in the month of March as a zone. Also next week President Nelson is coming to visit the mission.
This morning as I was cleaning the house I realized that the weekly cleaning is like participating in the sacrament. If we want to keep the house clean we have to clean if every week. I have to say there are some houses that are pretty nasty in the mission. If you clean it after 1 week, it's all good, 2 weeks and it's pretty gross, 3 weeks and it's super gross, 4 weeks and it's a complete disaster. While I was mopping the floor, I noted a few small spots and stains that weren't there the week before, and a few spots that hadn't been cleaned before and were difficult to remove. It's the same deal with the sacrament, everyweek we make mistakes. We sin and we start staining our body. If we don't "clean" these sins as soon as possible there a lot more difficult to remove from our lives. I know that Jesus Christ paid the price for our sins, as we worthily participate in the sacrament every week we can keep our bodies clean and pure so that we can have the company of the Holy Ghost in our lives. I hope everyone has a great week.
Love- Elder Webb
