Welp, I hope y'all like the photos last week

Welp I hope y'all like the photos last week, because this week there won't be any. Now I have time to write but I forgot my camera at home, whoops. Anywho lets see what happened. I feel like in these last few months I've been stuck in the middle of the thunder storm. Everything just hasn't worked, but in these last few weeks I feel like the sunshine is coming out again. That's the good news, after every storm the sun always comes out. All the people that we've been visiting are starting to progress, all the menos activos that we've been teaching have come out of the woodworks too and are coming to church.
This week we found this family of less actives that hadn't come to church and haven't had any contact with the church in more then 6 years. So we invited them to the church thinking that in maybe in another 6 years they would come, but they came. I felt like the Grinch: they came, they came without presents, they came without tinsel.. haha. Later we learned that their son has never been baptized. After church we went to visit them and we asked the son what he liked about church and he said he liked the talk about covenants and that he wanted to get baptized. We're hoping for the 12 of Agosto but we'll see what happens. Also this day I had been fasting so that we could find someone who wanted to receive the gospel in their lives.
Let's see what else, my companion is a great guy, he's has a lot of charity. At night when I'm hungry, I'm just sitting there and the a few tacos magically pop in front of my mouth. I don't remember if I've already said this but he has been out here for 6 months, and I'm his third companion. I kinda like being with new missionaries. I feel like I've been able to help my last few companions become better people and better missionaries. This week I also had exchanges with Elder Smith from the ccm. It was good to see him and catch up on all the exciting stuff that's happened in the mission. It's was weird to think the 16 months later we would have exchanges.Welp I hope everyone is having a great summer. In all the hustle and bustle don't forget the Lord.
Love Elder Webb

No sé qué poner aquí

I realized I've only been sending these emails to the fam, but I hope everything is there on my sweet blog. Check it out...Anyway this week is pretty exciting. When I woke up in the morning I had something really important to tell you all, or so I thought, but now I can't remember, oh well.
If I didn't tell y'all the last week, my new companion is Elder Adrian from Puebla, Mexico. He has 6 months but tells everyone that he has 7. He's a pretty good Elder. According to him he's been a member his whole life but was always inactive and so according to him he's only been a member for a year. He's a hard worker so that's what counts.
We had a great week too. We found this awesome family the Soliz Cuña family and they are super prepared. Actually we found out that the dad was baptized when he was 12 but then he fell off that wagon. We also found another hermana that's super goo. She told us she had seen a documentary about the church a few weeks ago and wanted to learn more. We are also teaching a young man named Guillermo, and one investigator named Juan Carlos came to church this Sunday so boo yah. There are a lot of good things ahead for this area. I have to say the work has progressed quite a bit in these past few weeks. We also had "interviews" again this week, I had interviews with the president's wife again and I have to say it's just not the same. Presidente is puro amor and brings the Spirit with him everywhere he goes.
Sé que el Señor vive y que el Señor les ama a cada uno de ustedes, tengo un testimonio de esta gran obra que estamos haciendo, la Iglesia es verdadera y el Señor esta llevando a cabo su obra por medio de nosotros, que tengan una excelente semana!
Love- Elder Webb
Sorry for the lack of pictures, the computer has been deleting my pictures but next week we are going to go to a different ciber.

quack, quack

Ohh say can you see, by the dawn's early light... happy 8th of July everyone, best day of the year! I like remembering the independence of our great nation.. and it came to pass that Elder Webb conquered those darn Englanders and set all the americaners free.. er, that's what I learned in history class.
Anyways this week was super busy. I'm pretty sure we had like 7 meetings. On Monday was the P-Day meeting, on Tuesday was the leadership meeting with Presidente and the asistentes, on Wednesday was the conferencia de zona meeting, on Thursday was the weekly planning meeting and the ward correlacion meeting, on Friday was implementacion meeting on Saturday was the baptismal service meeting, and on Sunday was the sacrament meeting. Pretty much we didn't have any time, but all the meetings were very good. It's always good when presidente comes to town, the meetings are always inspired and help us receive revelation and be better missionaries.
The sisters in our district also had a baptism this week. In Calvillo I never did  baptismal interviews because we lived in the boonies and the zone leaders always did it, so this was my first interview, and I have to say it was a pretty spiritual experience. I could feel that the Lord was satisfied with the hermana's decision and was consoling her that it was the right decision. The best thing about serving a mission is to see people who have changed their lives and are ready, and make covenants with God. Oh ya then on Sunday found out about the transfers. Elder Villegas headed off to San Luis Potosí, and my new companion is Elder Adrian from Puebla, Mexico, and he has 6 months in the mission. I would send some exciting action shots but this thing always robs my pictures. Next week we're gonna go to a better ciber and I'll send some pictures. I hope everyone has a great week and enjoys the summer.
Love-Elder Webb
