Thank you all for the support and love you have shown for Elder Olguin.
He must have run out of time this week to email. He is currently living in the north part of the city of Winnipeg. He is in a ward called the Gateway Ward and it has about 60 active members who regularly attend church. There are six wards in the city and they meet in four different buildings. He said it is very difficult because their numbers are so small and a lot of the work is contacting members.
All mail is sent to the mission office in Winnipeg and he lives about 30 minutes away from the office. He receives mail every Tuesday at zone conferences. This will probably change if he is transferred to another area out of the city. He uses Internet at the library for about one hour every Monday. He sometimes doesn't even have enough time to read all his email so if you write to him on paper he will have more time to read your correspondence. They have from 10-6 on Mondays to do laundry, grocery shop, some recreational activities such as the rugby he spoke of a couple weeks ago and email.
Elder Olguin's trainer is a missionary named Elder Moore from Duncan, Vancouver Island. He said that their personalities sometimes clash.
Apparently Cuauhti is a self-proclaimed excellent cook and he has also realized that, (contrary to the last 12 years of his life), he is also excellent at studying.
They live in a small apartment and out the window there is a sign that reads "Smile you are on camera".
They have two desks, four folding chairs, and a table. The bedroom is two single beds and apparently Cuauhti does know how
to make a bed.
He is still excited and loves what he is doing. He said time goes so fast and there are not enough hours in the day to do all he needs to and wants to.
Thanks again for all your prayers and support. And remember, if you see Mormon missionaries walking down the street, they are kids just like Cuauhti (so be nice!).
