Week 36, baptism and I am staying here another transfer

Zero cavities is always good especially for Jared. And Hopefully kaydens arm will heal pretty fast so he can get back to swimming and everything and enjoy his last half of summer.
Thats cool that Zach and Melanie are back , it seems just like yesterday I was in high school with them. But that is cool they were able to talk about their missions, does Melanie have a crazy mexican accent or was it difficult for her to speak ?That would be cool if Bishop was still your guys bishop he is a really awesome Bishop! Were you guys bowling with bumpers ? haha
Yeah good luck with twlight camp haha.

Okay so this week in Colombia...
Martes: We went to the Family P* house and they made us Empanadas which were way good! Than we had a lesson with C* to prep her for her Bautismo , then later in the night we taught the plan of slavation to a part member family so that was good!

Mericoles : was our meeting with the new president. It when really well. On theway  there the 6 of us crammed into a smalll taxi again that was a little uncomfortable but toca. Anyways after 45 mins we finally arrived , and my left leg had gone completely a sleep to the point  I couldn't feel it so when i stepped out of the taxi I almost fell on my face. Anyways then we got to meet our new president , President Laney he seems really cool and he is pretty young, I feel really bad for his wife because she knows absolutely nothing in Spanish, but I guess she has 3 years :) 

Jueves :  there was a baptism by some one in the other ward but we went with one of our investigators it was really cool , because the little boy that was baptized his family lives  in a country where there's no religious freedom so , they meet in secret to have services , then they came all the way here to have the baptism which was super cool , and a great story of faith!  Then later we had a lesson with the family A* and then with S* and her daughter J*. 

Viernes: We had lunch with E*'s mom which was good she gave us pasta , then we were able to share a message with her. Then I came home and was kind of stressed alittle , but luckily I had bought a Dr.Pepper earlier in the week when we were in Bucaramanga so that was super good! Also we went to the chapel so Elder Lindley could interview C* and while we were waiting Anderson made a  paper airplane out of a large old poster in the church , it looked legit , butcouldn't  fly it to save his life.Anyways C* Passed!!! Then we had a lesson with S* and now he has a bapitsm date for the 1st of August

Sabado : in the morning we cleaned the house , then the rest of the day we were preparing for the baptism , then the baptism went super well!!! IT was super awesome !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Then later we came home and I made no bake cookies! :) 

Domingo: Went to church it was good , A* showed up with his tie I gave him looking tan guapo ! Then in a primary class they had the missionaries come in speak a little about the mission , and then they gave us pictures they drew that said Gracias por su servicio , super cool ! 

Hoy : we went and played Futbol before Elder Lindley had to leave. He is going to Bogata to be a zone leader which is cool , and a missioanry from peru is coming here , which means I'll be the only gringo here in Piedecuesta !!! No more gringo power! But Idon't know I guess we are going to see how things go. At the end of this Cambio I will have been here for 6 months almost in this area super crazy , like a 4th of my mission ! that is weird but cool ! 

Anyways things that made me  : Bautismo , Clase de Ingles, Dr.pepper, A* with his airplane , Playing soccer

Scripture: Joshua Chapter 3 talks about faith super cool story !!! 

Thanks for all the support and prayers I appreciate them very much ! Have a great week Family love you guys !
