Got to be a tourist today!

Hello Everyone,

     I hope everyone like my spanish letter last week!! Who knows, maybe someday in the future it will happen again! 
     So this week has been pretty good! We have some investigators that are progressing nicely. 
     This morning we went to Tulum to see the ruins! I have to say, they are amazing!! I will try to send as many photos as posible, because I took a more than 100... hey don't judge!! Lol. 
     It was awesome. Elder Smith and I went with two other Elders in our district, Elder Chavez and Elder Vargas. 
     It was an adventure! It was so amazing because this is really the setting of the Book of Mormon. The history of the Mayan people here are descendants of Lehi when he came here from Jerusalem. And Elder Smith had already been here with a member who knows a lot about the details. So he explained it to us too. Its amazing how the details match the history and the things that it talks about in the Book of Mormon!! It is so true!! I would like t explain it to you too but its better if you were to come here. Oh, and there are a bunch of iguanas here! And they get pretty big. 

     Also, this Sunday (yesterday) we had our meeting in the new church! Actually the new Stake. Its called, "Stake of Zion". How awesome is that!?!? So thats the scoop for this week everyone. And we are having transfers this next Sunday, and who knows if I will stay or go haha. 
     Thanks so much for all your love and support and we'll see next week if I will stay here or if I go somewhere else!!

     Tulum is the site of a Pre-Columbian Maya walled city serving as a major port for Cobá. The ruins are situated on 12-meter tall cliffs, along the east coast of the Yucatán Peninsula on the Caribbean Sea in the state of Quintana Roo, Mexico. Tulum was one of the last cities inhabited and built by the Mayas; it was at its height between the 13th and 15th centuries and managed to survive about 70 years after the Spanish began occupying Mexico. Old World diseases brought by the Spanish settlers appear to have been the cause of its demise. One of the best-preserved coastal Maya sites, Tulum is today a popular site for tourists.
