June 17, 2013
It's been a pretty good week here. It's been hot (the rainy season has been pretty hot and dry after the first week passed), but we've had lots of opportunities to teach, and have found families who are preparing for baptism. Schools here in Mexico remain in session until July, so they have quite a bit longer before they can rest, but I'm so glad to hear that you are making the most of your vacation. Yesterday was Father's Day here too, and, rather like Mother's Day, everyone was busy (and Mexico is playing in the World Cup), so there wasn't a whole lot to do, but we had the best week we've had in a month. But happy Father's Day, Dad. I really have been thinking about you all, and I want you to know that I love you and appreciate all the sacrifices that you have made for me. And, Mom, congratulations on your new job. I love you all,
Elder Bryan Hall
P.S. Mom, I have not received another package from you since the one with the rain coat. And people in this area seem to have a general aversion to plants. There are lots of mangos and lots of bananas and lots of coconuts. But not much else that grows and practically nothing cultivated.

This past week was pretty odd. We went to the mission zone leader conference on Tuesday, slept in Villahermosa, and continued until late on Wednesday. And then on Thursday we went back to Villahermosa for a special zone conference where our zone leaders taught the zone the things we learned at the conference. So our week was pretty well filled with training and traveling. But we still found time for teaching. And we had a baptism this week. Not one of our investigators, but still nice to have a baptism after two and a half months of nothing. I spoke in sacrament meeting yesterday and also gave the lesson in elder's quorum. Both were on the subject of families and temples so it wasn't too bad even though I was notified of the opportunity on Saturday evening. That's pretty much everything of note that happened this week. Cuidense mucho,
Con amor,
Elder Bryan Hall

How is everything going on your side of the world? Here we have begun the time of rains and it's only a little hot. I've also managed to stay mostly dry (except one time when the water was running up to our ankles in the streets) We'll see how much longer that lasts. There are many people here who need desperately the message we share but who don't themselves realize what it is that they're missing. My companion has conjunctivitis right now so he's been complaining a lot and I can't touch him or my face or anything in our room. Tomorrow we've been invited to the mission conference of zone leaders to give a presentation on the state of our work in Reforma. It will be a bit interesting because we have to spend the night in Villahermosa, but that's alright. Our work here is continuing more or less well, we teach a lot of lessons every week, but we haven't had a baptism in two months. Pero a pesar de todo estoy agradecido por estar aquí. Espero que ustedes queden bien allá y que Dios los bendiga y que recuerden la bondad y amor de Él en todo.
Cuidense mucho,
Los amo,
Élder Bryan Hall
