Then there was a
warning out because 3 people were killed, so Tuesday we only went out
working from about 7 to 9. This week has been raining a lot, and that
means that we have more mosquitos.... which sucks. I wish I had Lolo´s (Lauren Zaharis') super
anti- mosquito power because these things are eating my feet off!
week we had the baptism of Liseth!!! It was great! It´s awesome to see her be baptized and how quickly she has progressed and how much the gospel has changed her
Also, Sunday I gave a talk in church. It was all going awesome, I was
talking about Agency, but then I looked at the clock on the wall and it
said 9:55 and I freaked out and ended quickly because there was still one
more person that needed to talk after me. Once I sat down, I looked at my watch
and it was only 9:48. The people didn´t get the full message...kinda
Thursday we had our last conference with President Gaviria and his
family. He talked a lot about marriage and also how we can know Jesus better. For example, what kind of things we can do to bring ourselves closer to Him and learn
more about Him. It was a great conference and I was able to see a lot of
buddies there because it was all of the Barranquilla missionaries!
This pday was pretty
much a bust. We wanted to go bowling, so we told the taxi guy where the
place was. He got lost and we got to the building late, only to find out
that it wasn´t open. We decided to go to McDonalds to eat our pain away. Next we printed some pictures and came back home. So thank you so much Dad and
Grampy for your donations for pday, but it looks like that money will be
going to another pday in the future (I haven´t taken the money out
So that´s about it! Love you all!! This week should be pretty
crazy with transfers! By the way, this picture is like a "normal" Newspaper in Colombia.
Love you all! Abrazos y besos!!
