That is awesome Kman congratulations broham, know just 10 more years and you will be ready to go on a mission so crazy but so awesome bro! And Im super glad to read that everything is going good back home , it is weird that we will be talking with each other in 2 weeks , I feel like we just talked , and even more so it will be my last call home , so crazy! Where does time go? Anyways you are going to come up with some good questions to ask , or think of some right now so you are prepared , and you should give me some advise , like about collge and all that good stuff :)

 Anyways this week in Colombia: 
Martes: We went to look at an apartment because right now it kind of stinks living 4 with one bathroom!But I guess it could be worse, so i wont complain. Later we did some contacting but no one really wanted to listen to us but thats all good. 

Miercoles: It was Elder Lopez Birthday, yeah i know 4-20 jaja, and yea we made brownies ;) We had the zone conference which went alright, then I went with E Tipton on intercambios and we took Da_ to the temple then to seminaries , so that was super legit!! Later we had a lesson with the Family Ca_  , which went well . But we are still having problems getting all the people we teach to church:(.

Jueves: We had lunch with some of the investigators form the other elders , and well is is super coll because they have a cross fit thing in their garage ! So I think next monday we are going to go do crossfit!!Later we had super good conact in the street and we have a lesson set up for this week so we will see how that goes! 
Viernes we had a lesson with one of our investigators but halfway throught the lesson he just got and said well i need to go and left jaja

Sabado : all our lessons fell through so we had to walk a lot !

Domingo: Well on the way to church it rained on us so that was cold the whole day , and well I cuaght a cold , then we had lunch with the bishop and had cake because it was his bday that was super cool!Then we had an FHE where we shared the video of Lots with and how we shouldnt look back and live in the past, but look forward with hope in the future so that was legit  too!

Week 75 Elder Montoya, and Elder Oaks came to Bogota

Wow sounds like you guys had a long busy week , Full of many adventures. That is crazy Kman is eight years old , time goes by so fast! Tell jacob to practice using spanish with dad , and just try to speak it! It is way worth learning as much as you can while you are in high school!  That is awesome that you were able to talk to him. Yeah I got 2 letters from her that were super nice. I did write a letter for their family but i still havent sent it, because im trying to think of a cool gift to send  everyone for the Bdays. Ideas? Wow just where i need to be for stake conference jaja , ya casi ;) 

Anyways this week in Col.....

Martes: We recieved bunkbeds so that is new , also I'm on the top so it is like home again! Then it rained really hard after lunch , and just to say we got soaked!

Miercoles: My comp gave a good lesson on patience. Which is what I needed , because i have been losing it lately , but now when i am about to Sacar la pierda with something i tell my self have patience! Anyways then we found an investigator , and we helped him build birdhouses for service that was cool! Then we had a good lesson with one of our  investigators about the BoM. 

Jueves: We had a lesson with D_ he still hasnt come to church , but hopeully today we can go with him to seminary. Later we had a lesson with G_  a member about the importance of Christ , and then we talked a while and he wants to go on vistits with us so that is awesome! 

Viernes: We had the opportunity to hear from Elder Montoya which was super cool! he talked alot about the desires to serve like ammon so that was cool! He also tlaked about how one of Satans most powerful tools is doubt , and how we need to strenghten our testimonies everyday to fight off doubt.  Oh I also got a package from Grandpa and Grandma McGuire so that was awesome, and I was excited to wear my new tie! 

Saturday: WE had salchipapa for lunch which was good, oh then Elder Tipton bought a Cherry Dr Pepper , I dont know where he found it but I was so happy! Then later in the night we had a super cool contact in the street, we passed by a man that shouted out ¨Salt Lake¨ so  of course I turned around to talk with him and found out that he has talked with the missionaries before, and he says that we are more then welcome to come to his house , the coolest thing ever , because that doesnt happen everyday in Bogota!

Domingo: WE also had stake conference it was good it was a region confernce , and so there was apostles that spoke, it was like a mini general conference. Also Elder Oaks  attemped to speak some spanish which was cool! Anyways that was pretty much our week . Still havent bought a baterry for my camera but hopefully soon. Alright love you , and have a great week!

Week 73 love general conference!!!!!

Wow Mom that was my favorite quote too! Even though it was super short both of his talks they were great! I agree I miss his stories too! That is cool there was a talk given in conference the priesthood session about , how marriage , and how to strength a maariage is like a garden knid of. He said how we need to take out the weeds , and water the flowers , or in other words ,  as we look for what is good in the person we will only find good in the person , so that was super cool! And I love that talk What  Lack I Yet? it is super amazing one of my favorites! Lucky missionaries !!!!

okay so this week in COL....

Martes : Well lunch cancelled on us , so luckily we had some coupons to KFC so that was good! Then we had a super good lesson with Dario about not living under our privliges , Uchtdorf gave a talk on it about the man who went on the cruise , and but only stayed in his cabin the whole time eating beans, that was a great lesson. 

Miercoles: It down poured here, but luckily we were close to a PanaderĂ­a so we ate pan , and chocolate! then we had 3 good lessons set up that night but because there was no one to come visit with us we had to cancel all the lessons! ughhh!!! 

Jueves: Went alright , we had our weekly planning session , and then we had one lesson , but nothing too excting happened this day.

Viernes: We had a interviews with President Laney it was super good talking with him , he thanked me for serving as zone leader then he told me , just because you are not zone leader any more doesn't mean you are not a leader , he told me that I needed to help my Companion to become a future leader in the mission and also after the mission , help him learn how to lead so that was cool! He  also gave me a lot of great advice which I am super thankful for he is amazing and I know he has been called of God!

Sabado: Conference, went super well I loved it ,just like always the preisthood session had to be my favorite , the spirit is just so strong , and I can just feel the power overwhelm the building during the priesthood session it is so awesome , I do miss going with Dad , Seth , and Jacob to watch it , but I'm  glad thay are still keeping the tradition going. I like how all of it was focused on the family and temple marriage to was  so Chevere!!!

Lunes: Well I'm almost finshed with my application to BYUI , i think there are a few things I have left, like one essay , and I need to rewrite both of the other essays because they were wriiten with little time , but I think by the end of the month it should be good to go! 

Also it was super cool to see a program of the deseret farm in florida and see familiar faces !!! 

Remeber ,¨there is nothing good unless you do it¨-Uchtdorf
