Chetumal, Mexico


Kevin Tello


I just got my package with all of the letters and postcards everyone sent me. I want to thank everyone for their support. It means a lot more than you would think. I got them just in time because this past week sucked. We had no power for six days and had to use our emergency money to get it back on. We had no money and the other missionaries in the zone had none to spair. I have spent the past four days only eating what the members feed us.
Things are better now. I got my money from the mission, some food that isn't complete crap, and our power is finally back on.
Last night we were stopped by a middle aged couple who wanted to know what church we were from. I had kind of a bad feeling about them and not because they were smoking pot or that they were drinking beer. It was the fact that they were watching George Michael music videos. Anyways the wife turned out to be... a complete nutcase just as I had expected and the boyfriend was already high so I didn't listen to a word that came out of his mouth.
They did offer us some pot but I wasn't looking for a high at the time so I said no. They said they were going into their house to get us something and that is when we got outa dodge.
That is my week for ya. Not the best but as Nacho Libre would say "You know, Whatever."

Add ons:
I will be keeping extra food from now on
Yeah we had enough to eat it was fine, we just went shopping and bought a bunch more food
Something on the breaker broke so we had to call someone to fix it
yeah I really liked the letters, I have read all of them multiple times now. They did make me feel a little more homesick though.
A girl (H) wrote him a letter that was in the package. I didn't read it. It was really nice, she was telling me about how she is going to Utah State and how she prays for me daily and stuff like that.
The president brought me the package and right now we are teaching a family. The husband is inactive and the wife is a non member.
Ok I have to go now love you bye
