Hope all is good in the Bay! Did you celebrate 1 year of Trump?
Things are doing good in Santander.
This week was sweet. Super tired. I'm bummed because this internet cafe doesn't have an sd card reader so no pics this week but next week ill come through!
Elder Jimenez and Elder Parra finished their missions. Good friends. We dropped them off at the terminal.
This transfer was easy. Only a couple new missionaries came to the zone.
We did an intense service in La Cumbre - pretty much favelas. We made cement and then laid it for a good 3 hours. They gave us lemonade and empanadas after. There was a construction worker with us and while we were eating he said, "Indio con hambre no puede trabajar..y lleno tampoco." Which means, "The hungry Indian can't work. Neither can a full one."
Everyday we walk down this huge Z shaped path down a mountain to get to our area. Always filled with potheads who think we are cops.
Rolled over to visited 1st Counselor in the Bishopric yesterday. Gerson Sandoval. Told us how he went on a mission because his best friend was going and he didn't want to be bored at home. Ended up getting called to the same mission, and later they were comps. But they ended up hating each other as comps and asked for emergency transfers. Friends are one thing, comps are another.
Love my zone. Tons of hard workers. Missionaries with rough home lives who are making tons of sacrifices to be here.
Love our invesitgators. We have 10 main investigators and all of them rolled up to church. That felt sweet. We were all sitting on a bench together.
One line in the Colombian national anthem is "el bien germina ya" which means "the good is already germinating."
The good is already germinating.
amen love you guys!
P.S. Some pics pday today. We went to a Jesus statue.
