Doing Great!

Braxton celebrated his birthday with 3 different families. Everyone likes him so much. I put the pictures on his birthday post. Looks like he had a lot of fun. He said that at the second party and little girl named Carol,who is like 10, won 80 pecos from a slot machine at the store by her house. Braxton just thought that was funny. (how old do you have to be to gamble? at least 10 I guess) Carol also was going to make chocolate covered bananas but when she was melting the chocolate she also melted the bowl. Braxton's comp thought he'd have some of it anyway, and by the time Braxton was blowing out his candles his comp was throwing up from toxic poison. Just another little lesson learned. They also made sopes with the family, and Braxton said they are delicious.On Saturday they were able to baptize four people and he said there should be more this week. Braxton said "things are straight up and sweet." He did say that one of the ladies he baptized was terrified of water and she had to be baptized three times. He said they had to baptize her face first. I'm thinking that was the final time. The first time her foot came up and the second time her elbow and so Braxton said he pushed her down really hard the third time. His arm was red from her grabbing on so tight. (poor thing) (The things you have to go through sometimes.)

Braxton loves his mission so "flippin" much. Oh, and remember the police horses, well he has pictures. (I think that made his day)

Oh, and just a little tid bit of info about Mexico. There are so many cars that they are building roads above the other ones now to try to accommodate them all.

Braxton is being obedient! That's the only advice his dad gave him and he said that has kept him from doing some crazy things.
