Week 32 – Ixtapaluca and Wal-Mart

Courtney didn’t have time to write a letter, but here is an excerpt from her quick note to us...

I have great news!  I am happy and healthy!  I am in Ixtapaluca, Santa Barbara and my companion is Hermana Cervantes from Sonora, Mexico.  She is super nice and has 29 years.  We get along well and I will learn lots from her.  My area is great!  I feel like I am in America.  There is a Wal-mart and a Sam’s Club close to my house.  We went to Wal-mart today and I have never felt weirder in my life.  I felt like I was just walking around Wal-mart in LV.  The members’ houses are a little more American and so is their food.  I have made some awesome friendships here already and we took a lot of members to the temple this week.  I got an email from one of the young women in my old area saying she missed me!   I don’t need you to send me anything for Christmas.  I just want a picture of San Diego and for you to tell me that we are going there when I get home!  I will send pictures next week!

Love, Hermana Cox
