I'm pretty sure you guys already have heard, but if not, on Saturday one of the elders in the mission was killed in Cali.  He was eating lunch when a stray bullet hit him in the head.  They took him to the hospital but he either died there or on the way.  His name was Elder E. from the Dominican Republic. He was part of my group, meaning he was in the Bogota MTC with me and showed up to the field at the same time.  I didn't know him too well, but I had talked to him before.  It's very sad.  It made the news.  Apparently the police don't think it was a stray bullet and are interrogating the elders that were with him.  We don't know much else but they're gonna tell us later.

There was another "paro", or roadblock strike.  It's settled down a bit but its still going and the missionaries in Nariño had to stay in their houses for awhile.  Apparently some sister missionaries were in a taxi when people started throwing rocks and stuff at it.  Nothing has really affected Cali though.

On a brighter note, we convinced the hermano who has a small bus to come help us pick up investigators for last Sunday.  We broke my previous church attendance record and got 17.  It was dope.

Elder  Christoffer Waddel of the Seventy is coming Thursday to visit.  It should be sick. 

A pesar de las dificultades, seguimos adelante.  Lo que pasó con el élder fue muy triste, solamente puedo imaginarme como se siente su mamá.  Gracias por todo el apoyo.  Nos vemos en 10.
