Feliz lunes!

Feliz lunes! 

This week we had a special service opportunity. The missionaries in our zone helped distribute free
wheelchairs to kids in need here in Oaxaca. It was done through a group from the United States so we were asked to go and help translate. We talked to the kids while they were getting their wheelchair personalized, as well as told the parents of the children whatever the white guys fixing up the chairs wanted them to know. It was amazing to see the smiles on these kids faces when they first started wheeling around in their new wheelchairs. There are so many disabled kids here in Mexico, so its sweet to see them get helped out with brand new, expensive wheelchairs. 

This week is Elder Eriksons last week as a missionary. I will have a new companion in a week, so that will be excited to find out who. It would be a big surprise if I changed areas but that's also a possibility. Today we went to the ruins of Monte Alban. It was HUGE and beautiful. I took a lot of pictures. 

Other than that, nothing much happened this week. This next week will be fun, since its Elder Erikson's last week, were going to the best burger place in Mexico. The chef at this burger place lived in Virginia for 15 years and learned how to cook a real burger. 

Oh yeah i forgot to mention. I posted a picture of this fruit here called Lixi. Im not sure how you spell it but you pronounce it lichie.
Its one of my new favorite fruits. You peal the hard outside and you are left with a white kind of translucent inside with a dark pit in the middle. Its super sweet and delicious. 

I hope you all have a fantastic week!

Con Amor,
Elder Smith
