It was Halloween here this week. The people here in Mexico celebrate Halloween pretty much the same way that we do in the United States. They dress up and go around asking for candy. The only difference here is that they do it for the 31st and the 1st and 2nd. It is a three day celebration.
We had our Stake Conference this week. A member of the Seventy Elder Ulises Chavez came and talked to the Stake Los Reyes. It was a great meeting. He talked really directly to the members. It was crazy some of the things that he said. He told a story about a cow that was dying or something like that, and they had to puncture a hole in it so that it would live. He then took out a knife and said that sometimes we need to be hurt to get better. Then all the things that he said to the members that were hard to hear he held up the knife. It was a crazy Stake Conference hah!
After the Stake Conference we had a baptism. It was a 75 year old lady. We had some food before her baptism. It was Tostadas de pata. They are chips and feet or something like that. It is pretty much pure fat that tastes really good hahaha. Her baptism went really well, one of the best baptisms that I have ever had. We asked the bishop to perform the ordinance. We had one of the other Elders do a special number and it was great!
We had a great week and not much else happend. I hope everyone else had a great week!
Love Elder Ivie
