I’M GOING TO MEXICO CITY, SPANISH SPEAKING!! I Report on September 8th, 2020!!


Awesome! I always wanted to go to Mexico. Sounds cool! Will your mission take you anywhere else?

 

No, I will be staying in Mexico City as missionaries have a range where we can go, but I am super stoked to see lots of Atta when they fly!!

1 Savannah Monitor (cause I don't have the heart to give her up and send her away while I'm on my mission, She's my pride and joy!)

 

NOTES: I'm about to leave on a mission for my church (September 2nd, 2020-September 2022) to Mexico City, Spanish speaking.

Cool. What is your mission in Mexico?

My mission is to serve and preach the gospel of Jesus Christ to the people. I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and we can serve missions if desired when we turn 18-19.

You don’t have to catch everything to appreciate and enjoy it. That’s what it means to be a naturalist.


And that's what iNaturalist is for!

Cool! If you want to come back in two years, we will welcome you with open arms and ants.

"The ants are a people not strong, yet they prepare their meat in the summer." Prov. 30:25  

Keep ordinary ants in extraordinary ways.

Oh nice! I’m a believer myself, and my Dad is actually a pastor. Good luck, and may you be able to bring many people to Christ :) And thank you for serving God in that way.

Though I am not a Christian. I am in another religion (which I’m not comfortable sharing online), but I still wish you best!
