Changes!!! So I am now in the pueblo (town) of San Pablo del Monte (in the state of Tlaxcala). My new companion is Elder Espinoza. I am senior companion. We are only a small branch here and by small I mean that we had about 30 people in the house of worship (I think that is the English version of Casa de Oracion) and we only have 9 families in our half of the branch (we have 4 elders here), 4 of which are active. We have 4 people here that have baptism dates. Two of them are not married but living together (they are in the process of getting married but it takes time), and the other two are relatively new investigators with whom we put a date last week. The area is actually kind of big, we have half of the pueblo of San Pablo del Monte and it isn't that small of a pueblo.  I still haven't really learned the area yet but I have the next month to do it before the next changes (this change will be a little weird because of Christmas, 5 weeks instead of 6). Oh and talking about cold... here in San Pablo it can get pretty cold. My second night it was super cold, the worst part about it was that we had to teach a lesson in the street because there wasn't a man in the house. At the end of the lesson I was soooooo cold. The package with the sweats and hoodie got here just in time :). 

GO GO GO SEAHAWKS!!! I love that we are kicking butts left and right. I just hope we can keep it up for the playoffs and the next two years (so I can be there when we win a super bowl).

oh the pictures are from the roof of our house here in San Pablo. I am not sure but I think that the first one is of El Popo, I don't know what the others are they were just cool and I could see them from the house. I took them early in the morning (about 6:45 ish).
