Santo Tomas Branch
Hipodromo Stake
Companion:  Elder Troncoso

Hey guys!

We had a pretty normal week!  Things are moving fast and we getting things more under control here in Santo Tomas. We are continuing to work with our investigators. D-------- attended church again this week.  He is awesome.  He is quiting drinking coffee and continuing to strive to keep God´s commandments.  He is progressing great and we are going to have an activity in his house tonight with the branch.  He is a great guy!

E-------- is also moving so fast.  He will be baptized next week.  He already has 3 talks written for when he gets baptized and is given the opportunity to give them, haha!   He is a funny guy.  He knows everything and the lessons are pretty much just passing over things he has learned on the church´s website and in seminary books.  He is the one that calls us to set up appointments and everything.  He will be an awesome missionary some day!

Nothing else too exciting happened this week other than talking with my family over skype yesterday.  That was fun!  I'm glad to see that my family is doing great!  I'm glad to see that the kids are doing well and they are growing so fast!  They will be so big when I get back.  I can't wait!

Oh and I drank zucchini juice this week.  It's amazing that here in the coast of Colombia they make juice out of everything.  You would think that the blender was invented here because they put whatever kind of fruit/vegetable/animal/etc. that they have in it!  It's cool though.  I get to try a lot of types of different foods!

Well I hope to have some fun stories this next week for you guys!  I love and miss you all! Have a great week!

We made my superman Pez dispenser into super missionary
and coincidentally, it looks a lot like my companion!
