I must begin my email by saying that the Book of Mormon is true. The most true. Like, seriously, there is no better book on the face of this earth. I need to start with that for what we did last Monday right after I wrote my email to everyone.
Here within the limits of our mission (and within the limits of our very own zone) there's an ancient archeological sight called Teotihuacán. It's a pretty popular place for our mission, other missions (even though they technically shouldn't be allowed to visit it), and people from all over the world. Last Monday, Elder Mena and I had the grand opportunity to visit it. First things first, we climbed the Sun Pyramid. Here's us at the bottom:
And here's us at the top:
...and here's our ward mission leader... Oh, Arturo
While there at the top, a young man came up to us and asked us where we were from (we were in missionary clothes, so we stuck out a bit). We started a conversation and found that he's a member of the church, but his parents aren't. He called them over, we contacted them, and we took down their address to send to the missionaries where they live. We can officially say that we contacted someone on top of the Sun Pyramid of Teotihuacán. #likeaboss
After coming down from the Sun Pyramid, we took the tour that they give according to the Book of Mormon. Oh. My. Goodness. It was so full of pure meat of the gospel that I didn't even know what to do with myself. They showed us the symbolism used to represent Quetzalcoatl before and after the coming of Christ and how after He had shown himself to the Nephites, their representations of Him were far more humanized (because they knew He was human). It also showed a variety of the things the Lamanites did when they took over in the apostacy in the Americas. I simply cannot explain everything, so you can come down and see it for yourself. Don't worry, Lorenzo also gives the tour in English... I think... If not, I'll translate. Just be prepared to have your entire universe explode by all the symbolism of the gospel. It's awesome.
Oh, the changes also came in. Elder Mena and I were the only two in our entire zone who didn't have changes. We'll definitely be taking our investigators sometime this next cycle. I officially only have 3 cycles left (about 4 months), but I don't want it to end! Lots to do and the time to do it is quickly running out!
