Here with my new comp Elder T..  Hes' from Veracruz, Mexico.  He has about 6 months in the mish.  He's pretty quiet, which is the opposite of Elder C.

We found a pretty legit family that we helped to move and now we are teaching them.  They came to church on Sunday and we are gonna try to get them to commit to baptism tonight.  Wish us luck, haha.

Mostly we're trying to get the ward to do things like family nights where they invite us and their friends over to their house and we all get to know each other and then we play some games and do some magic tricks to try to get them to laugh a bit.  Then we have a spiritual thought and usually a video.

Pero sí vamos adelante aquí .  Hemos encontrado algunas personas buenas y estamos trabajando para que se bauticen.  Nos vemos.

Another week here in (Ciudad Modelo) model city.  We recieved the transfer info yesterday. Elder C. is leaving for Jamundi, a city about 30 mins outside of Cali.  The only thing I know about my new comp is his name is Elder T., he's from Mexico and I think he's got a little less time in the mission than I do.  

They're  also sending two sister missionaries to the ward.

We're really having a hard time getting people to come to church. The whole world here is asleep on Sundays until like 11:00.  The only investigator we have is a 9 year old kid named Andrés.  He wants to get baptized, but his mom thinks its too fast.  She's never been able to come to the church because she works and we're trying to get here to let him be baptized.

Just trying to stay obedient. The mission is having a real problem with disobedience right now.  Some pretty crazy stuff has happened, even up to the office.  But I'm just trying to work hard and stay busy.  Because when you do that, there's really no time to be disobedient.

This Wednesday I should meet my comp.  I'm just trying to help spark some activity in the missionary work here. It hasn't been easy, but were trying.  

Realmente no ha sido muy fácil en estosdías pero nos estamos esforsando por ayudar a la gente aquí.  Sigamos adelante

We played a lot of fútbol today.  I'm proud to say I've gotten a lot better since the beginning of my mission.  I'm pretty sore though.

The work is going pretty slow.  We're really trying to get the members involved, but this ward has always had a tradition of not being super involved in the work. The converts they have had recently are almost all inactive.  Were just trying to do everything we can.   This is the last week before transfers.  I don't think I'm going anywhere, but they might send two more missionaries to the ward because there are a lot of new missionaries showing up in the mission.  If that happens, I probably won't be with Elder C. anymore.  I might not even stay in the same area even though I'll be in the same ward.

Pero todo bien vamos adelante, Esperamos poder ver los frutos de todo nuestro trabajo aquí pero de todas maneras eso no es  la cosa más importante.  Nos vemos en 14

First off, Happy Birthday Mom!

Another week here in ciudad modelo.  Things are slow but were doing everything we can.

I was gonna bring the talk, but I don't have enough cash on me to scan and send it right now.  Sorry.

It was a tough week.  We really tried with the people we have to get them to come to church, but even though everything seemed perfect, when Sunday came, things fell apart and the people couldn't go.  At least we've been able to help reactivate some who have been less active in the church. 

10 months in the mish...yeah.

Anyways, just trying to help the people here anyway I can.  Including my companion, who's having a hard time.  

La misión es la mejor.
