What a Difference a Day Makes!

Well, after waiting ALL DAY yesterday for Elder Guthrie.....seriously, I went to bed after midnight just HOPING for him to come online.....I finally heard from him today.

Here is his post:

Ok, so I'm in Siloa 1, there are only 4 missionaries in the city, so we have half of the city to ourselves,. My companion is named Elder Policarpo from the city of Mexico, he has 6 months in the mission, cool eh, I have more. The last picture is of him, sorry I don't have a better one. The house is pretty cool, mas o menus, it's a small city and we have to get on a bus to Leon every Monday to district meeting. a little different from popular eh¡? We woke up at 5 this morning to get to Leon at 8, que chafa. Supposedly the elders that were here before were very dead in mission terms, they did nothing, so they whitewashed the area, we're both new in the area and we don't know anyone, where they live...... They didn't even leave us any investigators!

He sounds great and sent lots of pics. I told you he was skinny, now see for yourself!
Here they are for you to enjoy!

Transferred to Silao, Mexico

Well, just as Elder Guthrie suspected....He has been transferred to a new area. I was waiting to hear from him today and when he didn't come online when he usually does I began to wonder if he had indeed been transferred. Just now I received an email from his old companion, Elder Adan Gonzalez, who confirmed that Jordy has indeed been transferred and had asked him to send me a quick email telling me he would write when he gets a chance...and not to worry. He said Elder Guthrie is doing great.
So, that is the latest. I am destined to sit here and stare at this computer until I hear from Elder Guthrie. I sure hope it is soon!
PS...here are some pictures from last week. The table is from Mexico's recent celebration called "Day of the Dead" where they set up memorials to their dead. Jordy described it as being "pretty neat".
Sorry no postings lately, but I will work on that!
