Week 41

This week has been very nice. We really have seen the hand of the Lord in the work here.

We work hard here.  We did a lot this week to get ready for an activity we planned. An activity to get references from members. We did a lot of hard work to get everyone invited to the activity. At the activity we were very disappointed because not a lot of people came. We only had a few people come. We only received three references for our area, one reference for the elders in another area. In the other two areas there were none. Sunday is when everything changed. We had six or seven people assist (attend), that we didn't think would even come. And now we have dates for baptism.

I have never felt this happy. We wake up, we get stuff done, get our planning done, we go out, we have fun, we each joke with each other, we do have fun and we do work hard. When we come home we feel good, literally we come home and are so tired. We do a little bit of planning, I brush my teeth and I literally just go to bed. It's weird.

My companion and I are bonding very well, which seems weird because it is the last week of this transfer. So we are going to do the best we can to continue to bond and have a great week. And work the hardest we have yet worked.

I really do love the mission work. I know that I am happy and that everything is fine. I'm supposed to be here. I know that I'm going to be transferred.  Without a doubt I know that I will be transferred. It is kind of horrible because we've got all these great people who are coming back to the church.  We have an old investigator, Wendy, who's back and wants to be baptized.  We have another two investigators who want to be baptized. We have another one who wants us to come visit her and talk to her about the gospel. She really believes the gospel can help her in her life. We have a lot of great references. A lot of great people we are working with. I don't want it to end. I don't want to leave the area, but I know that it's not my work, it's another missionary work to do. If I get transferred, I know it's because I am needed somewhere else. I just get to start over again.  In reality, I am super happy.

Sometimes I think I falter on a few little things. Things that I can do better here and there. I am working hard at using new words during our lessons. I am using many new words and I am expressing myself more openly. I just feel great. I don't want it to end.

I love you guys super much. Thank you all for the birthday wishes. Tell everyone I say hi. Tell Josh I said hi. Tell Omar I said hi.

I'm glad you guys went to fiesta fun center and went bowling for my birthday without me! I am not too happy about that.

I've have a lot of hard times here in Pasto, I had a lot of hard times in Jamundi as well. I think I have grown so much from these experiences and I don't want them to end.

I will try to find someone to fix my camera, it has a lens error.

I love all of you guys. Just know that I am very happy.

Thanks to all of you for everything. I hope you have a great week.
