Last week Elder Larsen went to a thing called Molino.  It is where they make all of their Panela that they drink.  They drink a lot of aguapanela.  They got to see the whole process of the drink being made.  This picture if of him eating sugar cane.  I am not sure what is on the sugar cane that looks like caramel.  (If you are from Colombia and you know, please feel free to inform me.)

Dear Family,
Well things this week, I guess you could say, were a lot bigger than planned.  As planned, we left early from Barbosa to go to Duitama on Wednesday morning. We got there around 8 for my meeting as a district leader. It was good. We had the zone meeting after that and it went pretty well. After the zone meeting we went to Tunja and went on splits with a companionship from there. Elder Dickson went with me (he is from San Jose, California) 

We were able to find a decent amount of old investigators and people, like planned. I was able to talk to Sneider (the cyclist convert) and he is actually leaving to go to France on the 25th because there is a team or something that is picking him up over there. He will have a contract for about 10 months. How cool is that right?? I will have to find out what part he is going to so we can let Alex know ha. The problem is is that Sneider only speaks Spanish and is trying to learn French. Alex only speaks English and French. Who knows...  (Alex is Kade's cousin that is now serving his mission in France)

Also talked with ______________ (first convert in the mission) She has gotten married to her RM boyfriend. She is pregnant and they plan on getting sealed this coming October. We also met up with one of the families but weren't able to talk much with them.. Just was like 10 minutes but we weren't able to talk much..   (I am not allowed to post names of people from the area without their permission so I have left it blank or changed his sentence a little)

Thursday we had interviews and they went really well. I feel like President is trusting in me a little bit more than before. I talked to him to see if I could go back to Tunja and perform a baptism of someone I taught. He said it might be possible but we´ll have to see.  That would be really neat, honestly it would change a lot of things ha. Complete a dream I have had since leaving there, I guess you could say.

(Kade's companion ended up being moved out in the middle of transfers) I think my next companion will come next Monday so right now I am in a trio.. Kind of weird.. But yeah. Changes are next week so we will see what happens. President also might take a companionship out of Barbosa so I could actually leave but who knows what he will decide to do. I am with Elder Coffman and Elder Mejia. Sorry that this email is not very informative with stories and stuff. I have to send in numbers and do some kind of exam thing on here today so not much time.. Well I love ya and hope you have a great week =)
