We finally received some pictures from Mexico. This first one is of "The Twelve," as they were called just before leaving the MTC.
This next one is a lovely view from his apartment in Matamoras, and then the inside of his apartment.

Next we have Christopher with his lovely bike helmet on. It is nice to see that he is trying to be safe. Next is a picture of him and his companion, Elder Escamilla. The last one is a picture of him in front of the Matamoras town building.

Here we have Christopher with "old blue," as this old run down bike was called. I believe old blue has retired and he has moved on to a bigger better bike. Next is Cristina's house, I'm assuming that is a member. Lasting are a group of missionaries in his area. It was one of the missionaries birthdays.

Here is a picture of Christopher's first baptism. His name is Jesus Don Chuy (I think).

Word From Mexico

It has been a while since the last posting. Christopher seems to be doing good. He has been in Mexico a month now. He was struggling a little at first, but he has really grown attached to the members. My mom is just glad that someone is treating him good and feeding him. He says that the language is coming slow, but it is coming. We have yet to get a letter or pictures from Mexico, but he does send brief e-mails to us every week. At least we can be somewhat updated, just not in full detail. His companion is from Mexico and his name is Elder Escamilla. We do know that Christopher has had at least one baptism, however, not many details about it (i.e., the new members name, male/female - who knows). There could be more baptisms, but we aren't real sure. We hope to get more information when he calls for Mother's Day in about a month.
