Well Pasto is really cool and really cold. But you know, that's the life of a missionary. My area is sooo much larger then my last area, so I have a lot to take in.

The last few days in Jamundi were hard, saying good bye and crying a bit. But I loved it. Now, I'm going to love the People of Pasto, their accent has already got me good haha.

As well, my compaƱero es Elder Coca, he has about a year on the mission and also is younger than me. He looks like Christian Te, weird haha. He is very different, but hey, so am I. haha.

We have 3 investigators lined up to be baptized, but we need to need to NEED TO work hard with them to get them to the date.

Other than that, my zone is cool! we went bowling today, and I sucked, but hey, I haven't practiced in a long time.

As well, There are 4 people in my group here! Myself, Elder Skinner, Elder Jeffery, and Elder Chunga! So that's cool! My district leader just got done with his capacitacion, y ahora es lider del distrito!(training and is now district leader) El es(he is) Elder Lyon. Really cool elder.

Other than that, nothing new.  Oh, lots of hills, Lots.

Well I love you guys, lots.

Hope you have a good week. love you.
