Hey it sounds like things are going pretty well back home. About the Olympics the people here honestly don't watch it all that much but I have seen it on a few televisions once and awhile, just not too often like in the states. They honestly probably don't have that many athletes in these Olympics.. Who knows.
Do me a favor and put the picture of us walking with the Barbosa sign as the Big picture on the top of the page on Facebook. But make it so you see everything good.
I was wondering when Nielson would finish the mission, he left way before I ever did. That's pretty cool, I think I have heard people having those problems (Visa expiring before two years) but that's normal so it doesn't matter. One month early isn't that big of a deal. More than that then yeah its kind of different..
This week was honestly a pretty hard week for us, mentally and physically. We just don't have investigators who are progressing. We weren't able to find as many new ones this week either. We are still trying to work hard and all. The Branch and us missionaries have now made some new plans to get the work moving a bit in the Branch. Every otherwe are going to meet up with the Priesthood of the Branch to go on splits with them to visit the less actives in the ward. To also help them learn how to teach the lessons and all.. The first time was yesterday and we hope to keep it going. We as missionaries are going to have to start teaching classes on "How to give talks" and stuff like that. All most every week we have to teach one of the classes at church. For example my comp gave a talk and I had to teach the Priesthood class. The other missionaries taught the Gospel Principles class ha. I talked my first here. Kind of different right? But its ok, helps us learn more.
This morning we went to a thing called a Molino. I have no idea what that is in English. Its where they make all of their Panela that we drink here. Remember me saying we drink a lot of Aguapanela. Its that, we got to see it all get made, the whole process and all. We ate a bunch of it fresh out, the pic I sent Makenna.. Also we ate sugar canes and stuff.
We found this huge bug thingwhich was almost as big as my agenda, it turned out awesome.. I had a bunch of good pics of it.
This week will be kind of cool because we will be traveling a bit. We have zone meetingmorning at . I have a meeting as a District leader at 8. We will have to leave our house around 430 in the morning to get to Duitama on time. After the meeting we will go to Tunja (where I started the mission) and work that day. we will have interviews with President around 11 in the morning. Honestly I am pretty excited to leave here for a day or two... I will be also be able to see some familiar faces in Tunja which will be pretty dang awesome. Hopefully we can cram quite a few appointments..
This week we had some pretty awesome pictures and all. BUT, honestly, I am pretty sure this computer attacked it with a virus. I have a copy memory card with the pictures and all but of everything from this last week, no.. I am trying to get it scanned and all that good stuff. I will be pretty dang mad if it gets all deleted.
I hope everything is going pretty well back home. We are trying to get the work going here. Honestly didn't have too many experiences to share this week.. Well, got to get going.. Love ya and miss ya´ll.
