Hey everyone!

So this week went by real fast like normal and like always there were lots of exciting experiences! Crazy to think its December already and that I have been out for 11 months! CRAZY how fast time has gone by! It’s also great to think about how much I have learned and grown in the past 11 months as well! It’s weird to think Christmas is already coming... I forget most of the time that Christmas is soon because people are not doing anything different and most people haven’t put up decorations yet. It’s also a little sad because I am not going to be able to really send anything to people for Christmas. There is not much to buy here to send to you and plus I don’t have money... SORRY! I’m going to try and get some letters written this week, but the mission president asked us to write lesson outlines, different than the ones we have written, and have them done for interviews next week.... so it’s a lot to do. Plus I have my own personal and study journals I need to write in so I have a lot to write each day. But with some diligence I can get it all done in the little time we have. But not having a p-day these past 2 months because of the dentist thing has made it a little harder as well. But I love you all and pray for you! That’s what counts, right? ;)

So we have this investigator, Veronica, who I mentioned last week. So she has read the whole BOM already and is reading the index and all! Its great! We taught her about the word of wisdom the other day and she was all upset because she has an addiction to coffee but she is already making the changes. BUT the BEST part is that she goes around town telling people that technically she is catholic, but that she is reading the Book of Mormon and it's changing her life! She goes and tells everyone and shares the book with them! How cool is that! We are teaching a less active who has a bike shop and she passed by and just started telling him about all of the B.O.M and such and how great it is and it helped him a lot to hear about the power of the book of Mormon and how it can change your life. It is great!:)

So the stake president of our stake gave a presentation during ward conference and it was so well done! He is a convert of 5 years and his second calling was bishop and his third was stake president! He is way humble and ready to serve! He spoke about how bad Chihuahua has gotten with violence and all and how we need to act and be leaders and stop blaming the government for everything. He helped everyone to see the need to ACT and really make a difference. But he showed a few numbers comparing violence and Chihuahua has some of the highest rates in the world! By a lot! The state of Chihuahua kills so many people and we are only below South Africa, El Salvador, and Venezuela, but we are HIGHER than Colombia! CRAZY! The numbers are all in comparison to the number of people in the state, but it was very eye opening. Chihuahua is the worst in Mexico by far and one of the worst in the world and is in the top three for most of the numbers!
Wow!! Don’t worry though; I’m a servant of the Lord! :) We are safe as we are obedient! :)

Oh and they finally called a bishop in our ward! SO that is exciting and we hope to work with him in trying to generate more activity in Meoqui.

Anyways, the work goes well! Sorry I do not have more time to write today!
Love you! Thanks for all the love and support!
Elder Andrew Davidson
