April 15, 2013 (Patriots Day)
Hey¡¡ How´s it going? And yes, I´m on the stupid upside down
exclamation computer again.
This week was good and really rough at the
same time. Good because we had some great lessons with investigators and
finally got one programmed for baptism and rough because almost
everyone that we contacted just told us to come back another day or they
weren´t interested at all, which after awhile got kinda tiring. It seemed like we
walked forever far and I´ve just been exhausted at the end of each day.
On a super-spiritual note...OH GREAT NEWS¡¡¡ THE COCA COLA PROMOTION CONTINUES¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡ We
thought it was over but we had like 16 caps and one day a lady a tienda
told us she had coca cola to give away so we brought all the caps and
empty bottles to trade....we drank alot of coke.
Some funny things that
happened this week, we were talking with this member kid and he told us
that this one lady up the street really doesn´t like the mormons so for
a test we sent the kid Jorge with a pamphlet to see what would happen.
He dropped the pamphlet next to the lady, she tore it up and threw it in
the street while screaming profanity at Jorge. It made me laugh.
outside our apartment in the morning there is a fitness class, but it´s
kinda old fat ladies and one big muscly guy. The best thing about this
class is that the teacher is fat and they really don´t do much for
exercise, more like jogging in place and punching the sky.
this week is that our ward mission leader left to Bogota to work so now
we don´t have a mission leader and less awesome dinners because he
usually cooks for us.
Once again for pday we did nothing (we can´t do anything with other missionaries unless we achieve the goal for baptisms. So that´s kinda a downer), but I did get a
haircut and we found out that our cedullas of extranjero came in so
we´ll be stopping by the immigration office to pick those up and then
I´ll be a legit Colombian¡¡
Also exciting news, I´m finally going to
give a talk in church¡¡ It´s only taken 9 months for someone to have
confidence in my speaking abilities¡ Pumped for that, just going to rock
this ward with awesome Norberg powered doctrine¡
Well that´s kinda it
for this week, hoping that this coming week we don´t get as rejected so
we can find more people to teach.
Love you all¡¡ Abrazos y besos¡
