Well today was transfers and Elder Cordova headed out to Ensenada and the beach! I am here still in Fuentes with Elder Rodriguez. He has the same amount of time as I do. He seems pretty cool. A little shy, but we are gonna help him out with that.

So this week as we all know was the final of soccer in the olympics and as we all know, Mexico was playing Brazil. And as we all know Mexico won (sorry Elder Bowman). And as we all know, Mexico hasn't ever really won many gold medals before. And as we all know, Mexicans are a little crazy sometimes. Well I guess we could just say, it was quite the day and very funny.

So I am pretty sure that I haven't stopped sweating for like 3 or 4 weeks. My head and arms are just always drenched! Hopefully these otter pops that Mom sent me will help cool me down. Thanks Mom!

This last P-day I learned to make some delicious Mexican food called picados. They were so good.
 I made the salsa in a volcanic rock with some really really hot chilis!

So yes. This week was much better. We have some good stuff going on now including people with baptismal dates and people who will have baptismal dates this week! We have had some good stuff and I am really looking forward to seeing how Elder Rodriguez works and seeing what we can do here in this transfer.
Way to improvise Elder Anderson.  (notice the broom being used for a pole.)

So there was a pretty funny story from this week. We were walking to a members house when Elder Cordova stepped in some fresh dog poop. There was a man outside with the house washing off his patio. So we went over to him and asked if we could use the house to wash off his shoe. He said yes, we got talking and we now have an appointment to return and talk with him. He told us he has lots of friends who are Mormons and has been to the church many times in California with them. He told us he is really interested and so I am quite excited to head over this week! So well the moral of the story is, God works in mysterious ways. When he stepped in it, he was not happy and I just jokingly said, well we could go use the water from that guy, but then we actually did it. If it wasn't for the dog, we wouldn't have talked to this guy. So yes, although some things in our life seem really weird, and we often time don’t want it, oft times it is God working through us to help another one of His children.

This week really was a great week. It was sad to say goodbye to Elder Cordova, but I am really excited to see what I can learn from other missionaries.

Well I hope that all is doing just so great out there! I love you all soooooo much!

Elder Tommy Anderson
