Week 92

Thank you Mom !,
It is great to here about your week! Have fun with school again:)

Okay well this week was full of adventure!

Martes: We had a lesson with S y D_ they are really great youngmen! They want to change but they dont have a lot of support from their family to come back to church, but we will see. Also we had some other lesson.  Then we were supposed to have a lesson with Kevin, but a Truck came from Bogotá so we had to wait for it because it was bringing materials to our house. So we didnt have a lesson with Kevin!

Miercoles: We had our zome conference, and we talked a lot about patience which is exactly what I needed to hear that day because shortly after, Pailas!!! We didnt have any lessons! Lets just say we put to practice what we learned earlier in the day.

Jueves: We went to San Martin, and we had a lesson with the Family Duran.They are really great but they still havent come to church yet:( Anyways later we were looking for directions and well we saw a hill that we have never seen before, and we went exploring because it is part of our area, and we found some really great people to teach! Also we can see a big part of Venezuela from the hill so that is pretty legit. Its like a mile a way. 

Viernes: We had exchanges with the zone leaders. Which went pretty good. I felt the spirit really strong with Elder Johnson,and we had a good day. 

Sabado: We had a open house for the chapel in Motilones. it went super well we  contacted  and brought a ton of new people to get to know the chapel so that was cool. It was a big success! later went and had a lesson with C_ ( Kevins mom) I_ ( uncle) and the grandma it was super legit! And they promised to come sunday to church, plus they gave us hot dogs for dinner. 

Domingo: We had a good day in church kevin and his family came like they said they would so that was legit! Then Later we to San Martin which was great!

Hoy: We played micro with the young men for a while and then had a district actvity by the river where we had asado! But sadly we couldnt jump in the river with how hot it was ! 
but it was still fun! 
 i hope you all have a great week at school! Make this year count ! Good luck Jacob with your game! Exito!!!!

Week 91

How is summer over already, that went by so fast!! That is way awesome that Jacob will be playing football! Im super excited to see him play in the fall/winter! 
And Im glad Josh and kayden are still playing soccer! Some one needs to keep the tradition going! :) 

Okay well my week in Cúcuta.... Lets just  say it was HHHHHHHOOOOOOOOTTTTTTTTTT  !!!!!! 
Martes: We were still waiting for our compaions to arrive so we were working in my area. We had a few good lessons, but I think what made my day was we were walking to a lesson, and we saw a man sitting down on the sidewalk, And he had a huge smile on his face, and we walked pass him, but then I got a huge feeling to turn back. So I looked back and he was still smiling at us so we turned back to talk with him. He was really receptive to what we had to share with him. We were  able to set up another day to visit with him, or well in this case other missionaries because he lives in a different area, but it was super Legit! 

Miercoles: New Companion! Elder Hildebrandt .... Can you guess where he is from? .....no .... you think the last name is american or from a different part, of the world but not a latin name. And well your right. my comp is from germany!!! Haha well his great grandpa, he is actually from Peru. He is a really cool guy. He is really humble, and super funny. Also he knows pretty good english so that is legit! Anyways we took sometime to get him settled in, after his long travel on the bus from Bogotá.

Jueves: We had a really good lesson with S_ and D_ , they are less actives young men, who want to come back to church. The only thing is they dont have a huge support system from the family!But we will see what we can do. 

Viernes: We had a super cool lesson in the morning with C_ it was great he told us of his desire to follow jesus Chirst and learn more about the church. So that was cool and the spirit was way strong! Then Later the sister missionaries called at the last minute to inform us that they had a baptismal interview. We had to run to the area in a small bus  that took up most of our day. But we were able to meet with A_ a reference from a member, so that was good! Now we are starting to find more people to teach! 

Sabado: We had our district meeting, and then afterwards our president had encouraged us to practice english to help the missionries learn so we sang  the Hoki Poki to help them learn the parts of the body so that was fun! later we had some good contacts in the street, and then we went to visit K_ and his family , and read the book of mormon with them!

Domingo: After church we went to San Martin, we had a few good lessons,  And we found a new family who are super awesome so we will see how it goes with them! 

Hoy: We went to Ventura plaza to go bowling, but the sister missionaries showed up late so we didnt have time, so we had an Ultimate air hockey battle instead, and My comp and I won!!! 

Anyways that was pretty much the adventures of our week. I hope you all have a great last week of summer vacation! ENJOY IT!!!

Week 90

Thanks Mom for the advice, and it is great to hear that all is going well back home. Hopefully those that are sick can feel better soon! 

Anyways this email is going to be kind of short, because we dont have a ton of time, becuase of cambios. Well Im staying here in Cúcuta, but my companion is leaving to Bogotá. Well my other companion will be arriving a here wednesday. And he his new! That is right Im going to train for the first time in the mission. Im going to be a Dad haha. Im excited to train but super nervous! But I think it is going to help me a lot to remain focused and give all of me these last two transfers in the work of the Lord! 

Well this week went by way to fast like every weeek! I feel like they just go by faster and faster every week! Well we had a really good week. We were able to find some new invetigators to teach this week so that is always good! Also we found a less active family who wants to come back to church so that is legit they are really awesome!! And we are also teaching their cousin who lives with them. And the dad isnt a memeber so we will see if we can teach him too! Also this week we were able to do a lot of service for members, less actives , and invetigators which was legit. I love doing service! I which I had a mission where all it was was serving! but teaching is also service which is cool too! yesterday after church Kevin´s mom made us lunch so that was cool! they are really aweome! And we are teaching the whole family now ! We also discovered that thursdays there is a pizza place 2 for 1 deal ! so it is like 7 dollars for 2 big pizzas!!! Jaja yummmm! anyways this was pretty much our week. I promise I will write a little more next week:)

I love you all so much ,
