When we are "here" (in Cali) we are making plans to be "there" (some other part of the mission)
and when we are "there" we are wishing for our bed back "here".
Living out of a suitcase and being on the go has become our norm.
We were asked to attend a Stake Conference in Pereira with Elder Rafael Pino, president of our area.
He spent some specialized training time with our missionaries in the Pereira Zone. We have emphasized the need of the missionaries and members to work hand in hand. President Pino has
re-issued the call to double the baptisms in this area. Listos Siempre Listos!!
Zone leader counsel is always a great meeting. These leaders have to teach, help sick missionaries, organize, and administer temporal affairs in their zones all while trying to preach the gospel and be an example of baptizing and leadership to those they lead. We had 7 new zone leaders at this counsel. We
are blessed to have such great young men learning to be leaders.
Friday we were "here" in Cali, Saturday and Sunday "there" in Manizales, Monday and Tuesday "there" in Pereira, and Wednesday "there" in Armenia. "There" are hotels that we would rather not stay at and we are always happy to get back "here".
We started our round of Christmas Celebrations.
It is beginning to look a lot like Christmas in the Eje Cafetero...
Celebrating with Zona Manizales, Zona Pereira, y Zona Aremenia
A Christmas Program, lunch, talent show and movie...A wonderful day of celebration.
