July 5, 2014

So we´ve been busy with zone conferences, finishing up the transfers, organizing the transfers, welcoming the new missionaries, saying bye the the old ones, and now preparing for the leadership counsel this coming Wednesday!
Also this week we had a really fun experience. My companion and I went out to the area to work one afternoon and some appointments fell through, so we started to contact and we noticed that nobody listened so in the contacts we said, "Hi we´re missionaries and we want to sing to you," and people listened! haha. Some still said no, but the people were a little nicer afterwards. We sang families can be together forever and in the end someone finally let us in which was nice and I totally think that they can progress.

The atmosphere these last few days has also been just absolutely wild for the soccer games, especially when Colombia plays! During the zone conference in Santa Marta Colombia was playing during president´s part which distracted a lot from the spirit that was trying to be there haha. Those big loud horns blowing, loud music, cars honking, and drunk people right there on the corner screaming can be pretty distracting.

But yesterday for the Colombia game nobody had to go to work so president told us that as soon as the game starts we should all head in doors so the whole mission was locked in yesterday afternoon, but that gave us a little time to get a head start on the leadership counsel coming up. But unfortunately Colombia lost... so now we don´t have to worry as much about the world cup.

Yesterday being the 4th of July and all I did the most American thing I could think of..... called and ordered a hamburger for dinner haha. All we were lacking was the fireworks.

Today we went to the zoo and it was pretty cool. A good way to enjoy the pday.

We´re working hard with Sebastian and his mom and step dad now. So let´s pray that they can all go to church tomorrow and read the book of mormon
