Okay this is the P.O. box of my bishop here.
   Mirna Aeanguis : 874 S. main st. #14342 San Luis Arizona 85349
So you could send it there and I will get it real quick! but you would need to send it here pretty soon because I will probably be changed here pretty soon. (to send a package with food)
  I really like bars like granola bars, cliff bars, or fiber bars haha. and muddy buddies if you would like (home made). Really whatever you send I am more than happy to get candy is fine haha. 
  The husband of Lily is a member, now active and her daughter is one of our converts, so now they are members! They are pretty awesome. We have a family home evening with them tonight so that should be cool,  I am going to make the cinnamon rolls that McKell makes hmmm. 
  WOW that is interesting that all those people are getting married! crazy how grown up they are... oh and I sent a letter to the Jensen's today so it should get there quick so if you could give that to them por please. 
I Love you mom! I miss you a lot! 
Love your Elder Zundel

Woo lots of sports that I know nothing about ha. But that is good that Bro. Bell could get married, I would imagine he is excited about that. 
The reactivation is one of the area focuses in Mexico for 2015 so we will be working a lot with the less actives, the only problem is that we can not find them. We have a ward list and we can hardly find anyone. But we will keep on working at it. Well hopefully that can work out for the Leavitts. (new wedding) What grade is Peyton E. in? That is for sure one of the things that I miss a lot is the FHE with the fam, speaking of that chicken someone asked me last week what I wanted to eat this Wednesday and I said that! So hopefully it comes out of the oven like Grandmas!! Dust will be in my prayers for sure.
  Well keep on praying, things are not going all that great right now in the Zone, I don't know what it is though? The numbers are not bad, we are working hard and we are obedient.  I think that we have just gotten caught in the flow of things. We need to change it up a little bit get some new excitement about the work and we will be doing good once again. We should be having another baptism this week with Maria Picaso, a young woman that we have been teaching for a while. We were going to have a couple this week but a couple couldn't go to church this week for work, and they have to got to church the week before their baptism, so they should be getting baptized the next week. Well I hope all continues to go well! 
I love you, and all of the Fam. 
 Elder Zundel

This is an email sent to Jennifer Whitworth from a friend of Jared's serving in the Tijuana Mission. He went on splits with Elder Zundel. The following is a paragraph from that email:

We did 24 hr interchanges this week so i spent a day with our district leader (Elder Zundel) and had a lot of success. We taught very well together and he is a stud. He is from tremonton. We became good friends. Anyway, with him, we commited two to baptism and i was able to share probably my best message of my mission so far on the story of abinadi! Elder Zundel is a great teacher and i really felt like he taught by the spirit well. He had me teach a member how to teach what the book of mormon is which was really cool too.

January 12, 2015

Okay so we were in our really big house and it was really nice and everything then the sisters got a bike robbed and they didn't feel safe in their house, so we changed them houses. Then a week later we found another house that is better and in our area so we are now there. It is right behind the house of one of my converts work and he works in a Japanese food place it is like a Hogi Yogi, so he gave us free food on Sunday night! 
  We had the baptism of Lily this week on Tuesday and it was awesome, my favorite baptism that I have had!

Their family is awesome! We will be making a trip back to San Diego in a year to visit them in the temple.
Sunset before the baptism of Lily

 We are also teaching a young couple that have gone to the church a couple of times and they are progressing well right now, it took us a while to get them going in it all but now they have a testimony of the Book of Mormon and are going to church! They are the Familia Soto! We are also teaching a young woman named Maria she is pretty awesome, nobody else in her family wants anything to do with us so she goes to church by herself and has read to alma in about a month an a half so that is pretty dang good, she will be baptized the end of January with the Familia Soto. We also have another young woman who we are teaching she has not been to the church for a while but has told us that she wants to be baptized because she knows the Book of Mormon is true, and her cousin also knows and wants to be baptized but her mom won't let her... this girls name is Estefania. Well there is a rundown of our progressing investigators, I was looking yesterday at church and from the help of the Lord and the comps that I have had we have brought 15 people to the church being new converts or reactivted members, so that was pretty awesome to see. Really the Lord is pushing his work forward!! There is a lot to do.
 Sad to hear about Sister Baird. (recent breast cancer diagnosis) 
You guys should have a good time at the championship game and might loose that sixpack... I have been going pretty hard on the workouts and am kinda watching what I am eating a lot of the time it is not our choice what we eat thoug. But all is well in Mexico, I hope everything continues well with you and all of the family!
 I love you! Love,
 Elder Zundel

WHOA that is here pretty dang quick! (Elder Dennison coming home) Well I wrote dad a big long letter so take a looksy at that.  I love to hear that you guys are not dead the work of salvation, and that you have never been dead, you are a great example to me of someone that gives service Thank you!
  You can send a package just to the normal address, but I am kinda on a diet haha so like bars are really good and I miss them... but really I am glad to recieve anything. 
I don't know if in the next family home evening you could have everyone write a little something on a little paper, I really like those:) 
I Love you MOM.

Hello mommy I hope everything is going great and that you are enjoying yourself back at work! That is cool that they remembered me, makes me happy to hear!( Burton and Carla Johnson accidentally going to Tijuana!)
 That is so cool that they could get sealed to him ( George Woolley being sealed to his parents) I cant wait to be able to see some of the families that I have baptized get sealed! it will be so awesome!
I love you mom! so so much,.
 Elder Zundel

Transfers came and I am staying in the same area, which is alright for me I was expecting to go but am happy to stay! 
We couldn't have the baptism of Lily this week because she got sick but she will be baptized this Tuesday! So that will be cool.
They took Elder Watts out of the ward and his comp finished the mish, so they are going to bring in two brand new missionaries so I will have to show them the area this week and help them out a little bit.
Well the hernia is doing good, it has gotten worse since I noticed it but it is not that bad, I bought a bandage that is special for hernias this week so that was the money that came out of the card. That should help a lot and keep me from futher problems.
New Years was just normal we didn't have anything to great go on we just went and visited people and ate a lot! Speaking of Eating well 7 months left, so it is 7 to Sexy, now and time to go hard on the workouts. No  worries I will get home looking good!
  Sounds like a good time heading up to the Crawfords, but you could have come down to San Luis in the same time, come on paps. 
That is cool that they could have a good time of the baptism of Payton! Well this should e a year with a lot of good things happening in it! 
I love you paps.
