I have a message for all the people that you see down there in Colombia more for the kids that you are going to help out on Tuesday –
” Hola amigos, espero que mi familia estan cuidandoles bien, espero que pueden divirtiese con ellos. se que en realidad todos tenemos problemas pero nuestro Padre Celestial nos ama y nos cuida, cada vez que tienen problemas, ora a el para que puede ayudarles en sus problemas, aunque si estan en la familia o en sus vidas personales, ahorita estoy in Mexico y hay mucha pobreza y ninos y jovenes que no tienen nada, la verdad absolutamente nada, pero están felices por que tienen una fe en Dios y en Cristo, no estoy aquí con ustedes pero en el futuro les visitare. Les Quiero mucho saludos de San Felipe, Baja California.
PS. Cuidado mi hermano Jordan es muy bueno en futbol!!”
Hopefully you can get this message soon and you can send it to the kids there. I’m really happy that you guys are doing that for the people down there. It really makes our Father in Heaven happy as well, just like it says in Mosiah 2:17 – when ye are in the service of your fellow being, ye are in the service of God.
This week has been pretty good. My companion and I have been working really hard to get ready for the baptisms that we have. Unfortunately we are only going to be baptizing 1 person because the others didn’t come to church which really sucks because we didn’t have a single one come, but it is what it is.
I’m really excited for this week because we have the chance to be able to go to the Temple and we are going to be going this Saturday!!! I absolutely can’t wait! It’s on the last day of the open house schedule and it’s going to be absolutely awesome!! Also this week coming up we have to go to a conference with the president in Mexicali so we have alot of stuff to be getting ready for this coming week! A baptism, Mexicali, and then to top it off on Saturday we have to go to Tijuana and we are going with our branch.
Then we have a baptism this Thursday – her name is C****** and the church somehow lost her records. We got permission to baptize her again so we are going to baptize her on Thursday!
Hopefully while you guys are in Colombia y’all can have misionary experiences. This week is Thanksgiving as well and I’m pretty excited even though we are going to be going without it because no one has invited us to anything. But there is an American named Sister Christensen who said she is going to be bringing me turkey and pumpkin pie which is awesome! So I’m pretty excited about that. Y’all are going to be eating beans and rice with chicken on thanksgiving so I’m pretty excited about that for all of you! Unless you can find a KFC just like in Jamaica. Anyway, I hope y’all have a blast there in Colombia and I can’t wait to go on the trip the following year.
Love y’all and have a great week!!
