So I decided to take some time to answer a couple questions that some people have asked and maybe some that haven't been asked. We'll see what ends up coming out :). So to tell y'all more about Elder Debora: He's from Mexico City, and he went to the "Mormon High School" that's now the MTC there in Mexico City. He and his family are converts though of only about 3 years. Not that this makes a difference, but his family is pretty wealthy, his dad works as a manager over two Subaru dealerships down in Mexico. He and I get along well, and he has a lot of fun stories from before he was a member, and even some pretty crazy ones from after he was baptized as well! He's a great Elder that works hard and is here not because he has to, but in fact is here despite what his father told him to do, and despite the fact that sometimes his family isn't super supportive. Technically speaking I'm the Senior Companion, but that really doesn't mean anything for us. We try to work together, and not have one person "in charge".
I had a question about English class, if we taught it as missionaries. Here in Vacaville we do not, there's a member, Brother Andrews, that teaches it, but in most other areas in the mission the missionaries do teach the English class. It's a great way to find people, if you can get it working a good way. It works great here because we hold it in a building that is right by where all the hispanic people live, so they can all walk from home. We also advertised it pretty well in some "Mexi-markets" nearby and got a few non-members coming because of that. That's how Alex started coming. We also don't have us, the missionaries, teaching, but there to help out and give a spiritual thought at the end and meet the people there. Then we see the people every Tuesday and Thursday and can build relationships outside of teaching the Gospel.
Anyways, I don't have much more time. I know there's quite a bit of questions about how the Skype/Facebook thing works and how it's going, maybe I'll take time next week to talk about that. I love y'all and hope the best for y'all!
