Elder Strong week one Colombia Bogota North Mission

Elder Strong has been called to serve in the Colombia Bogota North mission. Elder Strong will be serving November 2014 - November 2016. He left on November 4 2014 at 6:30 in the morning and arrived in Bogota about 9:00 p.m. He was able to email us Wednesday morning to let us know he had made it there safely. Elder Strong is in the Colombia CCM which is the missionary training center down there. He said it was pretty small, and all the missionaries are all very friendly down there. He said that the mission president of the CCM encouraged them to read the Book of Mormon while they are in the missionary training center. He also said that they start speaking Spanish first thing when he arrived. He was grateful he had taken three years of Spanish in high school, and also that he was able to speak some at work this summer. Sounds like he is doing great. His P- day's
are about 10 days apart, so we won't hear from him until November 14.
