I’ve saved up a few more emails from Bronson and combined excerpts of them into this blog post. His emails are not lengthy, but we can feel his strength and enthusiasm coming through. It sounds like the weather is cooling down a bit, as is his teaching pool. Enjoy the update!

This week was really not that exciting. We had to stay home over the weekend because Elder Vielma’s foot has been bothering him for a couple months. The doctor told him that he had to rest Saturday and Sunday. We are not really getting that close to any baptisms yet, but there are some people that we are working with. We have not had much progress with Daniel because of his parents. They are always making him work the whole day. I don’t know what he does specifically, but it sounds hard.

We found out that we get to go to the Mexico City temple dedication broadcast in September! That will be so cool to see in Spanish!

We are remodeling our house because the president’s wife came around and checked everyone’s houses. She said that our landlord had to add in a sink and make the house bigger if he wants us to stay there. He said that he was already planning to do that and to add onto the house to make it bigger anyway. He has already started on the expansion. We decided to get rid of a big wall/closet because it was pointless. He said it’s always been like that, but was ok with taking it out. After finishing the wall/close removal and laid a little cement, he stopped working on things. He told us that they are planning to tile the whole house so we wrote our names in the wet cement. 🙂 It was a little dusty but nothing too bad. I hope the work on our house picks up again.

It’s finally starting to cool down a little bit here. I don’ feel like I’m going to melt at the end of each day.

As you know we are not able to take pictures of locals residents, especially out in the open. However, while walking to the mission leader’s house, we had to go over a hill and we decided to take a few pictures because there wasn’t anyone around. 🙂

Thank you for all of your love and support. You are the best!
