Week 48-Transfers and new Companion

Hey Mom, Hola papa.

So um.
TRANSFERS CAME.
My little boy tantachucho left this morning without saying goodbye to anyone.

THE WHOLE MISSION CHANGED OVER NIGHT, WHAT IS THIS LIFE.

But yeah. My little boy is off to the coast. I am here with a new elder named Elder Mendez. He was a companion of elder coca. When they were in Pasto. So you know, it's gonna be great.

I'm super psyched for this week. We found a family of the family of Duban, Majerly and Jose Luis. We have a baptism date for them and a date of marriage!!! MARRIAGE!
I'm super happy. we are gonna break new ground!

Yeah. I miss my boy, but hey, he's growing up, just like I did. haha.
As well as my two favorite sisters left... so now I'm super sad because they were really nice support for the district. So now, I got to gain the confidence of the new missionaries. But hey. its gonna be great.

Tell everyone I love them, alot.
alot.
like alot alot.

Tell Grandpa I love him so much and I feel his love.

Have a great week.

Love your son.

Elder Pead
PS. I'm sending lots of selfies this week.

Week 46 Special Mission Broadcast

Thanks for the tips. I'll make sure to put them into practice!

This week has been fine. Got lots to do in Gorgona. We got a bus to take members to church here and so it's a little cheaper to go to church!  So hopefully that will help the menos activos(less actives) and all.  Also our wallets.

I really love juice so you know. When I come home we will only make our juice from fruit.  Lots of juice.

Okay back to the letter. We had a baptism this week of Jose Luis Armero!  He is so great!  A great convert and a real conversion. He will do great. We have two investigators who are really good. A mother and daughter and hopefully they will have their baptisms in the next weeks.

So yea, I loved that you saw me in that stream.(The Cali Colombia Mission is celebrating 40 years and they had a special meeting Sunday evening.  They sent a link for parents of missionaries to watch live.  Dallin was in the choir.)  I hope you liked it.

Oh and for fourth of July, I bought a mountain dew. Tell Austin the 4th isn't the same without a dew.  haha

Love you guys, have a great week and will talk with you soon.

Week 45

Hey Dad, it's  your son Dallin Travis Pead.

Writing you a quick letter. It seems like time is not on my side anymore. I'm glad you have a lot of work and stuff going on. It's always good to have stuff going on. Like you always told me "it's good to be busy."

Tell grandma I'll keep her in my prayers. I hope she gets better soon. Tell grandma and grandpa I miss them also. Tell Austin that it is great that he is doing a good job taking over for me and helping grandpa.

Yeah, I kind of forgot about the Fourth of July. A sister in my district had to remind me. She is from Mexico. She drew an American flag in her hand and said Elder Pead Elder Pead it's the 4th July. And I was like oh yeah.

Oh and also, speaking of the package you sent me but never came, it showed up this week. So you don't need to send me another one, I'm fine. I got it this past week so tranquilo my father.

It seems I can't speak English anymore. It's kind of weird but I am really starting to get a hold of Spanish really well. The people are saying that during our lessons I speak very well. The only thing that I seem to struggle with is on our invitations. But it is getting a lot better.

Speaking of the package, thanks for everything, the pants are nice they are just a hair big I am size 34 now. I bought some pants for my previous companion but I don't know what size they are, they were tailor-made and they fit me very well.

This week has been a week of trying to figure out how I can help my district. I'm still a little confused on what I should be doing. A little confused on what I need to do to help them.  I went on divisions with some elders in my district. I went with Elder Barvina, he was in my previous zone, he was actually the companion to Elder Skinner when we were in Pasto. It went really good. He is Elder Coca's companion now.

Everything is going great, still  have a lot to do and figure out. I know we can do it,
So if anyone has advice to send me on how to be a good district leader and help the members of my district please send it to me.

That's pretty much my week. Trying to become a better missionary and focus on how I am treating the other missionaries. Trying to be a better missionary.

I love that picture you sent of you and grandma. It was funny that you told me about all the things that grandma was dealing with and was in the hospital, but hey you're able to get a selfie with her so everything is OK.

I am once again the English leader in my zone. That is due to the fact that I am the only Gringo in my zone. We have a very small zone and my district is the biggest district of the zone.  The zone leaders are coming up with ideas to help me and I am waiting for a letter from the president to also help me with a few things.

I am going to read Mom's letter she sent me now and tell her I will send her a response to her letter.

Love you guys Super Duper much, have a great week.

Elder Pead
