Knee-deep in water

Hola a Todos!!
 Thanks for all the updates! I love it so much to hear from all of you. But glad to hear everything is good at home! All is well here in Mexico!
This week was pretty crazy... we had to take 3 trips to Tampico, like an hour and a half bus ride, to do random stuff but it really threw off our teaching rythym. So we didn´t get a whole lot done this week! On top of that, It´s been raining here. Haha and I have to laugh when I hear about the rains back home because here, the whole city is under water. Ha k not really but almost!! On Friday, the whole day we were wading in 6 inches of water through the streets. and sometimes, it was up to your knees. Crazy! I´m gonna send you guys a picture.
All in all, we´re still strugglin here with the work. The area we´re in is supposedly the hardest in the mission.... I don´t know. I don´t want to make excuses, but it´s freakin hard to get people to do anything! Haha. But it´s all good--we´re gonna continue to work hard and not give up on the people here. Because God wants every single one of his children to return to Him, not just a few.
My message for this week for ya´ll is one of misisonary work. Right now, the way we do missionary work is different. It´s all about the members helping us find new people. Also, it´s focused on less actives and reactivating them. So I invite all of you to be a missionary in any way that you can! Because in reality, the missionaries can´t do it alone. And there is SO much that the members can do that missionaries just can´t! We can´t really be the friend that they need. We can be there to help and stuff and ya we can be friends, but we have to help everyone and teach, too! So do it! Be a misisonary. And remember D&C 18: ¨How great will be your joy if you bring but one soul unto me.¨
Love you all! Thanks for all the support!!
Les quiero mucho!!
Elder Webb
