Jordan has been in Mexico for about a week now and is loving it!  His companion is a native from Mexico, Elder Piña (which means pineapple in spanish!). Having him not know English can be difficult but it also is helping Jordan learn. Jordan said the missionaries are like rock stars everyday they eat with a member and when they see them in the streets they buy them food or drinks, and the best are the drunks they always want to shake hands and tell them how they believe in dios (God) and in jesucristo.  They already have an investigator, Gautaulpe, and they have the date set for the baptism- which is very exciting! Awesome job Elder Ottaway and Elder Piña!!  Jordan is having a blast and having tons of awesome food. He said the members feed them everyday.  They eat a snack about 10 am and then eat a huge meal at 2pm with a member and have another snack around 8pm. and he hasn't gotten sick yet so that's good!  But he still doesn't have all the luxuries we have in America, in Mexico a toilet is a hole with a seat on it that you have to use a bucket of water to flush. You can write Jordan dearelders but send them to the Mexico City Southeast Mission. I am not sure of the exact address but this should work, when i find out for sure I will update it! Keep it up Jordan, we love you!

Look Out Mexico, Here Comes Elder Ottaway

Jordan has his visa and leaves for Mexico Tuesday morning! He is so excited! We all know he will do great things! When he gets there and lets us know everything then we will put more, but for now this is it. We are still waiting on his pictures and will put them up asap. Also his address will change, so the dearelder letters will be sent to a different address, so we will also let you know about that when it changes! Good luck to Jordan, we all love and miss him and wish him the best!
