Bolivia Santa Cruz North Mission
Alan is going to be working for the airport?? That's so exciting!!
I miss your lasagna and all of your other food too!! It's a lot of rice and chicken here ha ha.
Thanks for the post on Facebook it means a lot!!
I'm still in my first area with my trainer. We have transfers the 29th and my companion is going home this transfer so I'm definitely getting a new companion. But the work is going well!! We have 6 people with baptism dates and one of them is really working hard to be baptized. All he needs to do is marry his girlfriend but she needs to officially divorce her "ex husband".
We also have 3 families that are in active that we are working with and they are attending church!! So the work is moving along great and the Spanish is coming very easily! Almost all of the members and investigators say that my Spanish is better than other missionaries that had 3 months. So I'm very grateful for the gift of tongues!
I have the same message to share that every member is a missionary and that when we all do our part to share what we know is true with others we will see the blessings of the Gospel more in our lives and in the lives of those we share it with!!
I hope you all have a great week and that everything goes well with your missionary work!! Thanks for all the love! Tell everyone I say hi and that I love them!
