Buenas Tardes
The baptism went great. I´ll send the pictures, they´ll be better because Yulieth took them for me haha. Im excited for them and they are so excited to prepare to enter the temple! 1 year! 
Sounds like you´re all busy and doing a lot of painting! You´ll have to send pictures when you´re done. I got a whole bunch of emails from friends in the mission today which is fun. Emily in Bolivia has 6 months in the mission, Kevin got to Monterrey today, Elisabeth is in Carolina and sent me a funny video of her and her companion singing songs from the prince of Egypt, Cooper sent me an email to tell me he didnt die in the hurrican in Texas, Caleb had transfers in Costa Rica, and Jared is training in Wisconsin. Did you hear Taylor Smiddy is going to London? Eduardo and Andrea still havent got married so we´re hoping thats soon...still hoping. We found another family last night that live behind the church, Israel, Guadalupe, Brandon, and Toño Mendoza. They are so great! They´re catholic for tradition and because they want to be close to God but they dont like the church because they dont feel its focused in the truth! We taught the restauración and they liked it, we´re going to go to the temple visitor center this week! Israel is a tour guide so he gave me his busness card for when you come to Mexico. We also found another family that live in the same building as Darinka, the mom is super sick and in the hospital so we havent met her but we taught the daughter one day and the dad the other. Gervacio (the dad) has a friend that is a bishop and he seems pretty interested the only thing is that they´re both super catholic and its going to be hard for them to get rid of their saints and stuff. We also put a date with the Victoriano Family again and this time the dad didnt say no (he didnt say yes either but theres hope), Its cool because theres the mom and dad, 3 kids and a nephew and 2 nieces that we can baptise. 
The pictures of the dance looked fun. I think I know everyone but Anna´s date. The pictures of Carter and Cole looked great too and its funny to see that Cameron is still reffing. Hows Kelsey going with violin? 
Im sorry Im not thinking of very much to say... After we get done writting we´re going to go to Subway in the other ward Balbuena, with Elder Navejas from Sonora close to Arizona, and Elder Anderson from Arlington Virginia. Elder Anderson just got here 2 weeks ago and hes pretty fun to be with. I also feel bad for him because he always says hes frustrated with spanish and I know how he feels, the first few weeks are hard. He keeps asking me how long it took to learn spanish which makes me feel good because he thinks I know it well haha. In the morning got up and started the laundry and then cleaned the apartment. When we finished the clothes were already dry so that was nice. Laura our landlady (Kevin´s aunt) is opening a cake business downstairs so its going to smell really good in a few weeks haha. Now she has a gym and a cake business which is kind of funny. People can eat the cakes and then go to the gym to burn the calories. 
Why does the site give free physicals? What class did you teach in gp dad? We´ve been teaching the class too because the teacher went somewhere. I really love teaching it because its full of all the people Ive worked with that I love in this ward, the twins Monica and Veronica, Jasmin, Yulieth, Arturo, Erika, Eduardo and Andrea, Josafat and Evelin, a guy that got baptised in Chiapas and then moved here named Fernando, and a few people that are reactivating. They´re all progressing so well! Veronica, Monica, and Jasmin all have callings that they are working hard in, Yulieth is going to give the prayer in stake conference (shes nervous haha) and Arturo is going to be ordained next week and we´re hoping Jose Armando (one of the kids we baptised almost 3 months ago) recieves the aaronic priesthood too! 
Who knows if the cookies will send well. I think they´ll be fine if you seal them real good. People send food to missionaries all the time so it should be alright. 
Im loving it and learning a ton. Its not easy but everyday I remember how worth it it is. Love you lots and have a good week! 
Elder Inskeep
