With so very much going on it can be really hard to narrow anything down and get it written out. Here are a couple of highlights of the week.

This week I ate a couple of pickled pig`s feet. I was thinking I might make it all the way through without doing it, but was given the opportunity and took advantage. They take the pig hoof, soak it in vinegar for some period of time and ... ready! I polished off the first one and went back for seconds. 

General conference was a great and uplifting experience. As always, all of my questions were answered in a very direct way. It does not stop surprising me how everytime they come right out and almost state my question and then the answer. Impressive.

My companion is coming along in his spanish. It is harder than I thought it would be, but I know things will work out. 

We are staying focused and working hard. Sometimes I am really tired, the accumulated fatigue of two years, but time and again I feel the renewing power of the Holy Ghost help to strengthen me. 

I know this gospel is true. I have a great desire to share it with all those that I love, both those here in Mexico, and most especially those I will be among soon in my home. 

Lots of love,
Elder Brighton
